Seroma is a common complication following modified radical mastectomy(MRM). Closed drainage
is used routinely to reduce incidence of seroma. Usually two drains are used in patients who
underwent MRM to reduce post operative seroma. It is often associated with significant
patient discomfort and prolonged fluid drainage.
The aim of this study is to evaluate effect of number of drains on seroma formation rate,
postoperative pain and hospital stay during the immediate postoperative period after
mastectomy for breast cancer.
