Topical Tranexamic Acid: Risks, Benefits and Novel Complications in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2023 Apr 17. doi: 10.1007/s00266-023-03346-7. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAntifibrinolytics, particularly tranexamic acid (TXA), are agents used to reduce bleeding. TXA is a synthetic reversible competitive inhibitor to the lysine receptor found on plasminogen. By reversibly binding to this site, it leads to plasminogen being unable to bind to fibrin and so prevents fibrinolysis, this stabilizes the clot and thus prevents hemorrhage. (Pekrul in Der Anaesth 70:515-521, 2021) It can be used either intravenously or topically but has never entered mainstream use in plastic surgery. (Pekrul in Der Anaest...

Vergleich zweier Techniken der Umbilikoplastik bei 72 Patientinnen nach Brustrekonstruktion mit freier DIEP-Lappenplastik
CONCLUSION: Patient satisfaction showed similar results for the two methods of umbilicoplasty. On average, both techniques were given a good rating for their results. However, surgeons rated the caudal flap umbilicoplasty as more aesthetically pleasing.PMID:37023759 | DOI:10.1055/a-2003-6310 (Source: Handchirurgie Mikrochirurgie Plastische Chirurgie)
