The effects of inj. Methyl prednisolone against seroma formation were analysed. RESULTS: The study group who are given local inj methyl prednisolone 80mg into the wound cavity on day of surgery and postoperative day 1 showed a lesser seroma collection rate compared to that of control group. 24 hr seroma collection from day 1 post operative to day 7 post operative in both test and control groups were compared.
