Discussion & Conclusion

Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them coherent?

A: Good


Comments: The Discussion provides the evidence of the usefulness of the ultrasonography-guided cannula method for prevention of vascular and nervous trauma – caused by filler injections. The authors also provided the limitations of the study and showed the potential benefits of the ultrasound-guided cannula method. On the basis of the study conducted, the Conclusion suggests ultrasonography as a complementary tool to monitor tissue filler injections, mainly in the gluteal region and to avoid possible vascular and nervous injuries.
