Bipedicled Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy Versus Traditional Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy: Comparison of 2 Alternative Techniques in Order to Save Nipple-Areola Complex.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 04;84(4):366-374

Department of Breast Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Unit, Fondazione IRCCS, Istituto Nazionale Tumori Milano, Milan, Italy.

Background: Nipple-areola complex-sparing mastectomy (NSM) represents, when a mastectomy is unavoidable, the best treatment possible that can be offered to attenuate the negative impact of surgery on patients' quality of life. Unfortunately, NSM can be used only in selected patients with small and nonptotic breasts. In order to save the nipple-areola complex (NAC) also in patients with large and ptotic breast, otherwise subjected to a skin-sparing mastectomy with the sacrifice of the NAC, we described the bipedicled nipple-sparing mastectomy (BNSM).

Allogeneic and Alloplastic Augmentation Grafts in Nipple-Areola Complex Reconstruction: A Systematic Review and Pooled Outcomes Analysis of Complications and Aesthetic Outcomes.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 04 13;44(2):308-314. Epub 2019 Nov 13.

TLKM Plastic Surgery, Private Practice, Chicago, IL, USA.

Background: With advancements in materials engineering, many plastic surgeons have looked to allogeneic tissue and alloplastic materials as a possible source of structure for long-lasting nipple-areola complex reconstruction. Furthermore, in light of the recent mandate from the Food and Drug Administration restricting the marketing and direct indication of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) in breast reconstruction, we sought to highlight the overall safety and efficacy demonstrated in the existing literature surrounding all alloplastic materials in nipple-areola complex reconstruction. In this study, the authors conduct a systematic review and pooled outcomes analysis on allogenic and alloplastic implant materials utilized to achieve long-lasting nipple projection stratified by specific material used and respective outcomes.

Breast Cancer Recurrence in the Nipple-Areola Complex After Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy With Immediate Breast Reconstruction for Invasive Breast Cancer.

JAMA Surg 2019 11;154(11):1030-1037

Division of Breast Surgery, Department of Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Songpa-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Importance: The main concern associated with nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is the risk of local breast cancer recurrence at the retained nipple-areola complex (NAC) consequent to occult nipple involvement. Long-term follow-up data regarding the oncologic safety of modern therapeutic NSM in terms of cancer recurrence at the NAC and survival are limited.

Objective: To assess the incidence, risk factors, treatment, and long-term outcomes associated with cancer recurrence at the NAC in a large series of patients with invasive breast cancer who underwent NSM and immediate breast reconstruction. Read More

Radiotherapy after skin-sparing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction in intermediate-risk breast cancer : Indication and technical considerations.

Strahlenther Onkol 2019 Nov 26;195(11):949-963. Epub 2019 Aug 26.

University Hospital Erlangen, Erlangen, Germany.

Background: Skin-sparing (SSME) and nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSME) were developed to improve the cosmetic results for breast cancer (BC) patients, both allowing for immediate breast reconstruction. Recommendations for post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) are primarily derived from trials where patients were treated by standard mastectomies. Due to their more conservative character, SSME and especially NSME potentially leave more glandular tissue at risk for subclinical disease. Read More

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 May 21;7(5):e2262. Epub 2019 May 21.

Department of Surgery, Section of Plastic Surgery, Hospital of Southwest Jutland, Esbjerg, Denmark.

Background: Restoring the nipple-areola complex completes the breast reconstructive process. Local flaps are often used for the nipple reconstruction; however, the number of techniques indicates the lack of a superior design. The aims of this study were to test the feasibility of a new triple flap design for nipple reconstruction and to evaluate complication rate and nipple projection. Read More

3D areola dermopigmentation (nipple-areola complex).

Breast J 2019 11 18;25(6):1214-1221. Epub 2019 Jul 18.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Santa Casa de Sao Paulo School of Medical Sciences, São Paulo, Brazil.

Surgical techniques for reconstructing the nipple-areola complex (NAC) pose disadvantages such as areola necrosis, loss of nipple projection, depression or local necrosis, temporary leave from professional activities due to convalescence, and operational costs, all of which are factors that may discourage patients from undergoing them. In this context, dermopigmentation stands out as an emerging nonsurgical option. It is an inexpensive outpatient procedure that mimics the nipple-areola complex by means of defining the areolar contour, Montgomery's tubercles, and a variety of colors that allow for individualization and contralateral symmetry.

A novel nipple-areola complex involvement predictive index for indicating nipple-sparing mastectomy in breast cancer patients.

Breast Cancer 2019 Nov 8;26(6):808-816. Epub 2019 Jun 8.

Department of Surgery, Teikyo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, 173-8606, Japan.

Background: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is increasingly used in breast cancer patients, as it offers better cosmetic outcomes and improves quality of life. Nipple-areola complex (NAC) involvement must be accurately determined to identify which patients may be candidates for NSM. We aimed to identify the predictors of NAC involvement and develop a clinical predictive model to determine the patients for whom NAC preservation may be considered. Read More

The medial-central septum based mammaplasty: A reliable technique to preserve nipple-areola complex sensitivity in post bariatric patients.

Breast J 2019 07 11;25(4):590-596. Epub 2019 May 11.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Emergency and Organ Transplantation, University of Bari, Bari, Italy.

Introduction: Massive weight loss is associated with the ptosis of the breast, loss of the upper pole fullness, medialization of the nipples and volume depletion. Post bariatric patients often need breast reshaping with mastopexy or breast reduction. We report the author's experience with the medial central septum based mammoplasty for breast reshaping after massive weight loss. Read More

The axillary flap in oncoplastic resection of breast cancers located in the upper-outer quadrants: a new surgical technique.

BMC Surg 2019 Apr 24;18(Suppl 1):21. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Senology, Ospedale Santa Maria della Misericordia Urbino, Asur marche Area Vasta 1, Urbino, Italy.

Background: The combination of breast conserving surgery (BCS) with plastic surgery techniques has provided a useful surgical tool matching the radicality of the oncological excision with the preservation of breast cosmesis. Even though BCS represents a good option for surgical treatment of tumors located in these quadrants, wide excisions often necessitate breast reshaping in order to avoid nipple areola complex (NAC) displacement and skin retraction. We present a new surgical technique to repair upper-outer quadrants' defects following breast cancer excision using dermo-glandular flaps and an axillary adipo-fascial flap. Read More

Surgical delay may extend the indications for nipple-sparing mastectomy: A multicentric study.

Eur J Surg Oncol 2019 Aug 14;45(8):1373-1377. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Surgery, San Giovanni-Addolorata Hospital, Via dell'Amba Aradam 9, 00199, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is considered an oncologically sound procedure but necrosis of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) or skin flaps is a concern, particularly in the presence of risk factors. To increase the indications for NSM and decrease such complications, different procedures of "surgical delay" (SD) have been described.

Materials And Methods: A retrospective analysis of patients who underwent SD for NSM at four Italian Breast Centers from 2014 to 2017 was performed. Read More
