Determinants of Shock Loss Along FUT Scar

Recommended Posts

When patients have shock loss around the scar on an FUT procedure, what are the main causes? Is it surgeon skill? Luck? Genetics? Some physiological characteristic? I know what shock loss but I do not understand why some people get it and some do not and amongst those that do, why some have it bad and some not so bad. I imagine somebody is going to say all of these suggested factors, which will not be helpful at all, but if anybody has any inputs, that would be great.

Personal physiology and the skill of the surgeon to minimize trauma are the determining factors, both need to be in your favor to avoid shock loss.
