Prevention of Seroma Following Inguinal Lymph Node Dissection With Prophylactic Incisional Negative Pressure Wound Therapy


Brief description of study

Inguinal lymph node dissection (ILND) is indicated following metastatic malignant melanoma, and is associated with a high-complication rate, of which many begin with the formation of seroma and ends in complicated wound healing, reoperation, multiple outpatient visits and re-hospitalization. Prevention of seroma may therefore lead to a reduction of many of the preceding complications and improve patient quality-of-life. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and oncological safety of prophylactic negative pressure wound therapy following ILND in melanoma patients.
