Author(s): Muhammad Ridha, Suyatno, Emir T Pasaribu

The recent studies aimed to evaluate the effect of obliteration of dead space with suture fixation of the skin flaps in patients who underwent modified radical mastectomy with volume of seroma as the indicators. Factors that were evaluated including T status, N status, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, axillary dissection techniques and obesity. The result showed that the higher value of T, N, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the use of scissors and obesity will increase the volume of seroma.
