Dr. Pannucci was asked to speak at the 2022 ASPS Spring Meeting on risk for deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the legs) and pulmonary embolus (blood clots in the lungs) after abdominoplasty surgery.

While the risk is generally low (1 in 500, or 0.2% in the general abdominoplasty population), the complication can be devastating. Patients benefit from an individualized approach to blood clot risk stratification and prevention.

Dr. Pannucci is an internationally recognized expert on blood clots in plastic surgery patients…over 15+ years of research, he has authored over 105 peer-reviewed journal articles, over 150 invited lectures at national and international meetings, and been principal investigator on 13 clinical trials.
