Interdisciplinary Plastic Surgery - Chances, Conditions and Barriers of Reconstructive Microsurgery in Maximum Care Hospitals.

CONCLUSION: Reconstructive plastic surgery is of central importance in the treatment of complex surgical defect reconstructions after tumor resections, infections or traumas. Also plastic surgery contributes substantially to the treatment of complications occurring in other specialties. For those reasons, an independent and adequately staffed department of plastic surgery should be available at all clinics of maximum care, especially at all 35 university hospitals in Germany. As this is currently not the standard of care in Germany, changes are required. PMID: 31412390 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Intermittent pneumatic compression seems to add no benefit when combined with complex decongestive treatment of lymphoedema, but, may be functional in reducing the sensations of heaviness and tightness for the patients with pitting oedema.
