Université Paris Descartes, 15, rue de l'École-de-Médecine, 75005 Paris, France.

Perforator free flaps allow breast reconstructions « like with like » with skin and fat, excluding mammary gland, with a low morbidity. Those autologous reconstructions prevent material associated infections, capsular contracture and implant replacements, associated to breast reconstructions including implants. DIEP flap was described in 1994 to reduce the morbidity faced with TRAM flaps harvest. Read More

Determining the Trimming Layer in Breast Reconstruction with a Free TRAM Flap Using Intraoperative Video-angiography.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2017 Mar 13;5(3):e1266. Epub 2017 Mar 13.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Institute for Human Tissue Restoration, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

In breast reconstruction using a free transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous or deep inferior epigastric perforator flap, the trimming process for the flap area, which is usually the upper portion of the reconstructed breast, is critical to creating a natural-looking breast. In this study, we investigated which subcutaneous fat layer of the abdominal flap benefited most from a well-maintained blood supply during the trimming process using intraoperative fluorescent angiography system in a cross-sectional view of the elevated abdominal flap. We concluded that, for cosmetic purposes, the deep subcutaneous fat layer (beneath Scarpa's fascia) should be trimmed first to minimize fat necrosis due to fat ischemia. Read More

Desmoid tumor following abdominally-based free flap breast reconstruction.

Gland Surg 2017 Feb;6(1):89-92

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Desmoid tumors are fibroblastic connective tissue tumors that most commonly develop within the anterior abdominal wall. The etiology of desmoid tumors has not been well defined; however, hereditary, hormonal, traumatic, and surgery-related causes have been implicated. Desmoid tumors are believed to arise from musculoaponeurotic structures. Read More

Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Versus Free Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous Flap: Complications and Resource Utilization.

Ann Plast Surg 2017 May;78(5):516-520

From the Division of Plastic, Aesthetic, & Reconstructive Surgery, DeWitt Daughtry Family Department of Surgery, University of Miami Leonard Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL.

Introduction: Abdominal based breast reconstruction exists in a continuum from pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap to deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) free flap. DIEP flap has the advantage of complete rectus abdominis sparing during harvest, thus decreasing donor site morbidity. Aim of this study is to determine whether the surgical advantages of the DIEP flap impact postoperative outcomes versus the free TRAM flap (fTRAM). Read More

Plast Reconstr Surg 2016 Mar;137(3):758-71

Vancouver, British Columbia, and Toronto, Ontario, Canada; and New York, N.Y. From the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Department of Psychology, University of British Columbia; the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University Health Network, University of Toronto; the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Montefiore Medical Center; New York Medical Center, New York University; and the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Background: Approximately 20 percent of women select autologous tissue for postmastectomy breast reconstruction, and most commonly choose the abdomen as the donor site. An increasing proportion of women are seeking muscle-sparing procedures, but the benefit remains controversial. It is therefore important to determine whether better outcomes are associated with these techniques, thereby justifying longer operative times and increased costs. Read More
