Patient Satisfaction / Surgical Wound / Incision / General Surgery
Université de Sherbrooke
While some studies have suggested that subumbilical and transumbilical incisions have a similar clinical efficiency and safety, no study has yet evaluated their respective impact on patient's postoperative aesthetic satisfaction. The objective of this randomised trial is to compare patient's postoperative aesthetic satisfaction depending on the type of incision which is performed during surgeries.
- Procedure: Transumbilical incisionWhile both types of incision were considered equal regarding the potential clinical outcome, the investigators considered the transumbilical incision to be the ''intervention'' and the subumbilical incision to be the ''standard care comparator'' since the transumbilical incision take a few more minutes to be completed.
- Procedure: Subumbilical incisionConsidered here as the ''control'' intervention.
