How to Save a Life From Macroscopic Fat Embolism: A Narrative Review of Treatment Options.

Oct, 2019

Macroscopic fat embolism (MAFE) has grabbed the attention of the plastic surgery community through recent years owing to its high mortality rate. A good number of articles on its prevention during gluteal fat grafting are available in the literature. However, total prevention of this complication is a difficult goal to achieve and encountering MAFE is still a possible scenario owing to many variable factors and human elements. This review is written with the main goal of providing a treatment plan. MAFE shares a lot of similar pathophysiological and hemodynamic features with massive thrombotic pulmonary embolism (PE), especially the associated cardiopulmonary decompensation. Lessons learned from PE management were used to devise a management algorithm for MAFE. The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and its potential application as a main modality of treatment for MAFE was explored. Due to the paucity of evidence for the treatment of MAFE in the literature, and its high mortality, a relative urgency was recognized to write an article on the management aspect in the form of a narrative review, making sure that every plastic surgeon who is practicing gluteal fat grafting is knowledgeable with the treatment aspect of this deadly complication. read more
