The local and regional complications in 148 patients with several neoplastic pathology who underwent inguinal dissection were evaluated, taking also into account the contemporary surgery for the primary tumor. The evaluated dissections were 175. According to other authors, the most frequent local complications were infections, necrosis and abundant serum. The contemporary association with surgery in the primary tumor, excluding simple cutaneous exeresis, has increased the percentage of local complications. In cases in which other surgery was associated, the complications were 74.5%; 60% in cases with simple exeresis and 50.8% in cases with inguinal dissection only. The LVA following contemporary inguinal dissection seems to decrease considerably the number of complications.
