The new bioabsorbable sheet for the sling method in immediate breast reconstruction with expander-implant: a study protocol for interventional prospective study.

Nagoya J Med Sci 2020 Feb;82(1):39-45

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Okayama University Hospital.

The popularity of a sling method using biomaterial sheets for immediate breast reconstruction based on prosthesis has been increasing in western countries. However, acellular dermal matrix, which is representative of the biomaterial sheet, is not available and the sling method also has not been accepted in Japan. We focused on a new bioabsorbable sheet (NEOVEIL sheet) as a substitute for the sling method and report a prospective study protocol to assess the safety and effectiveness of this material.

: In those undergoing treatment for breast cancer, evidence has demonstrated a significant improvement in survival, and a reduction in the risk of local recurrence in patients who undergo postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT). There is uncertainty about the optimal timing of PMRT, whether it should be before or after tissue expander or permanent implant placement. This study aimed to summarize the data reported in the literature on the effect of the timing of PMRT, both preceding and following 2-stage expander-implant breast reconstruction (IBR), and to statistically analyze the impact of timing on infection rates and the need for explantation.

A comparative study between sterile freeze-dried and sterile pre-hydrated acellular dermal matrix in tissue expander/implant breast reconstruction.

Arch Plast Surg 2019 May 15;46(3):204-213. Epub 2019 May 15.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Korea University College Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: In implant-based breast reconstruction, acellular dermal matrix (ADM) is essential for supporting the inferolateral pole. Recent studies have compared non-sterilized freeze-dried ADM and sterilized pre-hydrated ADM, but have not assessed whether differences were attributable to factors related to sterile processing or packaging. This study was conducted to compare the clinical outcomes of breast reconstruction using two types of sterile-processed ADMs. Read More

The Impact of Chest Wall Boost on Reconstruction Complications and Local Control in Patients Treated for Breast Cancer.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2019 09 2;105(1):155-164. Epub 2019 May 2.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

Purpose: Giving an additional radiation dose to the incision or chest wall has been a practice, but it has never been studied in a randomized setting, and it might lead to inferior cosmetic outcomes. This study aims to evaluate whether delivery of a chest wall boost (CWB) to the mastectomy scar or chest wall is independently associated with reconstruction complications and to assess its disease control efficacy in the setting of breast reconstruction.

Methods And Materials: We conducted a retrospective chart review of 746 patients with breast cancer who underwent mastectomy, breast reconstruction, and PMRT; all underwent treatment at our institution during 1997 to 2016. Read More

Steven Sigalove

Gland Surg 2019 Feb;8(1):67-74

Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery, Scottsdale, AZ, USA.

Background: Prosthetic breast reconstruction in the setting of post-mastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) has historically been plagued by complications and poor outcomes. We study the effects of PMRT in the setting of prepectoral prosthetic breast reconstruction in an attempt to ascertain the value of this muscle sparing technique as it relates to complications and outcomes.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on patients who underwent immediate, prepectoral, direct-to-implant or two-staged expander/implant breast reconstruction following skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) or nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) and had postmastectomy radiotherapy. Read More

Comparative Study of Nipple-Areola Complex Position and Patient Satisfaction After Unilateral Mastectomy and Immediate Expander-Implant Reconstruction Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy Versus Skin-Sparing Mastectomy.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 04 11;43(2):313-327. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 81 Irwon-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06351, South Korea.

Background: Major surgical concerns associated with nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) are partial or total nipple-areola complex (NAC) loss, decreased sensation, and nipple malposition. Patient satisfaction and NAC outcomes including malposition in patients who have undergone unilateral expander-implant reconstruction after NSM as compared with skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess patient satisfaction and NAC outcomes of breast cancer patients who underwent spared or reconstructed NAC after unilateral NSM as compared with unilateral SSM.
