Anesthésie locale par tumescence [Tumescent local anesthesia].

Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
Tumescent anesthesia is a local anesthesia produced by the infiltration of a large volume of very dilute anesthetic solution into the subcutaneous tissue. Many surgical procedures (liposuction, facelift, varicose vein surgery, etc.), which were previously performed under general or locoregional anesthesia, can now be achieved with local tumescent anesthesia. This type of anesthesia has many advantages: reduction of both anesthetic risks and surgical complications (bleeding, hematoma), prolonged anesthesia reducing the need for postoperative analgesia, and costs reduction because all these surgical procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis.
