Abstractdc.description.abstractAbdominal wall weakness is a consequence of rectus abdominis diastasis and flaccidity of the myofascial component. A degree of plicature of the rectus abdominis generates an increase of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), which may result in an increase of intrathoracic pressure, thus affecting thoracic hemodynamics and leading to inadequate ventilation. To assess changes generated by plicature of the rectus abdominis on IAP and pulmonary function in patients undergoing abdominoplasty. A total of 10 female patients with abdominal ptosis were included. Chronic smokers and patients with respiratory co-morbidities were excluded. The IAP was measured using a modified Kron's trans-bladder technique. Pulmonary function was assessed by pulmonary compliance (P-Comp) and was calculated with parameters provided by the mechanical ventilator. Both were calculated before and after plicature. The mean values for IAP before and after plicature were 6.6 and 9.3 mmHg respectively. Before plicature, the mean P-Comp value was 38.97 mL/cm of water, and after it was 36.54 mL/cm. Both differences were statistically significant. Based on the results obtained, it is possible to conclude that plicature of the rectus abdominis generates significant physiological changes, such as an increase in IAP and a decrease of P-Comp, which do not have a clinically relevant impact on healthy individuals. Measuring IAP with the modified technique and the assessment of pulmonary function using P-Comp are both reliable and provide a more accurate correlation with such physiologic changes.es_ES
