54. Percutaneous correction of diastasis of the abdominal rectus muscles by means of the Elasticum thread and two-tipped needle
The Elasticum EP4 elastic thread mounted on the two-tipped Jano needle can be used to correct moderate diastases of the rectus muscles, without leaving scars. This Elastic Plastic Surgery procedure enables the muscles to be drawn back together in a stable manner, without tissue dissection and without leaving scars. Patient selection is important.
Palpation and echography are used to identify the diastasis of the abdominal rectus muscles accurately. It is useful to draw the pathway of the thread.
Local anesthesia is achieved by means of a modified Klein solution.
