Outcome of 122 delayed breast reconstruction following post-mastectomy radiotherapy: The scarless latissimus dorsi flap with tissue expansion technique.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Delayed breast reconstruction with tissue expansion may be risky after radiotherapy, due to the poor skin quality. To permit the use of the tissue expansion procedure, we propose a scarless latissimus dorsi flap to bring tissue trophicity, by a healthy vascularized muscular interface with no donor scar and no patch effect. The objective of this… (More)
