Article information

This document defines some particular aspects involved in practising anaesthesia in plastic surgery which are intended to improve patient safety. It presents strategies for reducing the most common serious preventable complications, such as thrombotic, embolic and infectious events. It should be stressed that these goals have been established and must be achieved with surgeons and anaesthesiologists’ participation. These recommendations provide detailed are additions to the Minimum Standards which SCARE has developed.
