BACKGROUND The latissimus dorsi (LD) flap is considered one of the working horses within the field of breast reconstruction and it offers several advantages. However, donor-site morbidity may pose a problem. This article describes a new and modified technique for delayed breast reconstruction combining the use of a propeller thoracodorsal artery perforator(More)
BACKGROUND Preservation of the nipple areolar complex (NAC) provides the optimal conditions for immediate breast reconstruction (IBR). Growing evidence suggests the oncological safety of nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) when neither NAC nor skin is affected by tumor. This paper presents our initial experience performing NSM and IBR in a selected group of(More)
This paper presents two case reports on thermal injury to a breast reconstructed by the TAPIA method. In both cases the injuries were caused by excessive sun exposure. Thermal injury to flaps used in breast reconstruction has previously been described but most commonly in abdominal flaps, which may be due to the relative high frequency of this type of(More)
INTRODUCTION We present Scandinavia's first series of immediate alloplastic breast reconstructions with an acellular dermal matrix. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data were collected retrospectively in 76 cases of immediate breast reconstruction using an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) and an implant. RESULTS A total of 59 women were reconstructed between June 2011(More)
We present our experience of bilateral total breast reconstruction using a double-sided extended thoracodorsal artery perforator propeller flap in a case series of 10 patients. Reconstruction was successfully achieved in all cases with few complications. The median time for surgery was 275 minutes (200-330), and the average implant size used was 350 cm(3)(More)
Fat grafting (FG) is being used at an escalating rate for correction of shape and volume of all types of breast surgery in order to optimize the aesthetic result in spite of an ongoing debate of the oncologic safety. In this paper we demonstrate our simple and fast sedimentation based FG technique in the attached video as visualized surgery. We have used(More)
BACKGROUND The thoracodorsal artery perforator (TAP) flap is a versatile tool that can be used to reconstruct the breast. The authors use preoperative perforator mapping using color Doppler ultrasonography and present a safe, efficient harvesting technique to demonstrate reliable use of the TAP flap in reconstructive surgery. METHODS A multicenter,(More)
INTRODUCTION Reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) traditionally marks the end of breast reconstruction. Several different surgical techniques have been described, but most are staged procedures. This paper describes a simple single-stage approach. MATERIAL AND METHODS We used a technique based on a local flap for reconstruction of the nipple(More)
