BACKGROUND A transverse musculocutaneous gracilis flap provides good autologous reconstruction for small- and medium-sized breasts. Although the procedure is well adapted for bilateral breast reconstruction, no publication has specifically addressed simultaneous bilateral cases. METHODS From 2010 to 2014, the authors performed seven simultaneous bilateral(More)
BACKGROUND The transverse musculocutaneous gracilis (TMG) flap has become a common solution for breast reconstruction. However, the safe skin paddle limits are not yet understood. In this study, we attempted to address this issue based on our experiences with inferior and posterior skin paddle extension. METHODS Forty-four breast reconstructions with TMG(More)
The infra-millimetre vessels are difficult to suture, because the placement of forceps in the lumen is delicate and threads often cross the walls. The technique of the IntraVascular Stent (IVaS), developed to remedy it, did not make the proof of its superiority. The purpose of this study was to analyze the results of a variant, the Clip Stent. Our series(More)
INTRODUCTION The transverse musculocutaneous gracilis free flap allows a wider range of indications in autologous breast reconstruction. They extend far beyond traditional dorsal, abdominal and gluteal flaps. The authors present their experience in using this innovative procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS The cutaneous and adipose part of the flap consists in(More)
The intravascular stent technique (IVaS) was developed to simplify the anastomosis of submillimeter blood vessels. One variation of the IVaS called the "clip stent", improved the patency of anastomosed vessels. The goal of this study was to analyze a subsequent technical variation called the "pull out stent", which aims to reduce trauma to the vessel. Our(More)
