Abstract

  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the current level of evidence regarding whether placement of a drain is beneficial after groin dissection in terms of reducing haematoma, seroma, wound dehiscence and wound infection rates. If it is, the optimal type and duration of drainage following groin dissection will also be determined.
