the number of binders available in today’s market is significant. the development of the market has led to many new products from a variety of companies that are claiming to be a solution for this problem. the market has become very competitive and one must ensure that the products they are considering are the best for their specific needs and their price is justified. we have noted that many companies are claiming to have one single product, but are actually selling many different products. they may have a few different products for each compartment of the abdomen, but for the most part, only offer one product and one design for the abdomen, and may offer another for the lower limb.
the classification of the different types of compression binders can provide an understanding of the functions of the different types of binders used in surgery. the classification of binders is based on a number of criteria including degree of compression, applied force, body area covered, whether it is ventilated or not, material, and the height of the binder. some of these characteristics can have an impact on iap. taking all of the characteristics into consideration, there are three categories of binders. initially there is a category of binders that have a very high compression, providing support throughout the time the patient is upright. these binders have a wide body area covered, but usually are not ventilated. there are then a second group of binders with a medium compression, providing support for part of the time the patient is awake and upright. finally, there are binder products in the third category with low compression levels, usually not ventilated that offer support to the patient for a shorter period of time than the first two categories. the first two categories have the advantage of providing support throughout the time the patient is upright, whereas the third category only supports the patient for a short period of time. the types of binders can vary from a non-compression, non-ventilated support product, which provides minimal support for the patient, a compression product that provides support throughout the time the patient is upright, and a ventilated, compressive product that provides support during the time the patient is upright. the characteristics of the binders can have an impact on prevention of postoperative complications, such as hernia, urinary tract infections, ileus, wound dehiscence, as well as the overall comfort and well-being of the patient.
abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is one of the most common operations performed. if used correctly, it can have some very positive outcomes in the form of a well-proportioned body, reduction of excess skin, and improvement in skin quality. however, abdominoplasty can also lead to complications such as hernia, abdominal contour irregularities, seroma, long-term volume loss, possibly reducing ability to gain weight, and ileus [ 8, 10 ]. this includes a higher risk of hernia in women, more abdominal scars, and a higher rate of contour irregularities compared to men [ 5 ]. contour irregularities can be corrected through a combination of abdominoplasty, preoperative intramuscular or intradermal injections, liposuction, and perioperative care [ 7 ]. other factors such as body weight and bmi have also been described as risk factors for hernia occurrence, even if patients are evaluated for hernia risk preoperatively [ 3 ].
in a different type of study that aimed to determine the effect of elastic compression stockings on iap in parturients, iap was measured by bladder palpation before and after placement of compression stockings and after delivery. they concluded that compression stockings significantly decreased the iap and that this might be a reasonable prevention strategy in high-risk parturients .
another study using bladder percussion to measure iap was conducted in a facility where a new postoperative abdominal binder was introduced. initial readings were taken in the recovery area before binder use. after the patient was ready to leave the facility, they were weighed on a scale and then brought into the postoperative care unit (pcu) for iap measurement. the measurement was taken in the pcu before and after the patient had dressed with the new binder. these authors concluded that it is a simple and quick method for measurement of iap without any special equipment and that compression stockings could decrease iap in postoperative parturients. furthermore, accurate measurement of iap by palpation is not very accurate (4 cm h2o variation in iap reading compared to 0.3 cm h2o measured by bladder percussion).
