Minimal incision method should be considered for lipoma extraction, researchers say

ASDS Skin Source SmartBrief | Nov 05, 2014

About a third of Ohio dermatologists surveyed said they had not tried the minimal incision technique for removing lipomas, despite the technique's efficacy, researchers reported in a research letter in JAMA Dermatology. Minimal incision extraction is used more often for small lipomas than for larger lipomas, which might require dissection, step-by-step removal or greater hemostasis, but the technique is effective for large lipomas, the authors wrote. A video demonstrates the minimal incision extraction technique, lead author Robert Brodell said. Medscape (free registration) (10/31)
