Malignant Phyllodes Tumor Recurrence in the Pleural Cavity via the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap and Internal Mammary Vessel Bundle: A Case Report.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Division of General Surgery, Department of Surgery, Ditmanson Medical Foundation Chia-Yi Christian Hospital, Chia-Yi, Taiwan.

We report a rare case that after rapid recurrence there was pathological transition from a fibroadenoma and benign phyllodes tumor to borderline and malignant phyllodes tumor. Another rare finding included tumor dissemination in the pleural cavity via reconstructed deep inferior epigastric perforator flap edge and internal mammary vessel bundle. Hence, we eliminated the use of internal mammary vessel bundle as the recipient vessel for free-flap reconstruction to avoid recurrence in the pleural cavity. Read More

Unilateral Reconstruction of the Large Breast: Combining Prosthetic and Autologous Methods for Improved Symmetry.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Feb 11;7(2):e2154. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Georgia Breast Surgery, PC, Lawrenceville, Ga.

Postmastectomy reconstruction in patients with significant macromastia and/or large chest wall dimensions can be challenging. Implants have a limited size range and may not be large enough to adequately reconstruct a wide, obese patient. Abdominally based flaps may be unsafe in these patients if they have significant obesity and or other comorbidities and may still be insufficient to adequately fill a very large breast footprint.

Anatomical Considerations to Optimize Sensory Recovery in Breast Neurotization with Allograft.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Nov 7;6(11):e1985. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU.

Background: Breast numbness is a recognized problem following mastectomy and subsequent reconstruction. Contemporary literature acknowledges the positive role of breast neurotization, but it is characterized by a variety of technical approaches and substantial heterogeneity with respect to the degree of recovered sensibility that remains suboptimal in comparison with other sensory nerve reconstructions. This study's purpose was to provide an anatomical basis for observed inconsistencies and therein provide a principle that can be used to develop a technical approach that will optimize sensory recovery.

The Suture Tab Technique: Securing Implant Position in Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Dec 12;6(12):e2005. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, D.C.

Human acellular dermal matrix (ADM) can augment prepectoral prosthetic-based direct-to-implant breast reconstruction by providing an additional soft-tissue layer between breast implant and skin, as well as to reinforce the inframammary fold and breast pocket. Utilizing ADM in this way has helped reduce rates of implant rippling, capsular contracture, and implant extrusion. Difficulty in securing ADM-wrapped implants has caused many surgeons to improvise techniques for secure implantation. Read More

Autologous Breast Reconstruction With a Delay Procedure of the Deep Inferior Epigastric Artery Perforator Flap Because of Venous Congestion of the Flap on Pedicle: A Case Series.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive & Hand Surgery, Maastricht University Medical Centre, Maastricht, the Netherlands.

The deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap is one of the most used free flaps for the reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy. Despite careful selection of the patients and preoperative imaging, difficulties in vascularization of the flap can occur in some cases. Although multiple vascular connections (bipedicled, turbocharged, or stacked) can be made in selected cases, there can still be venous congestion before the flap is transferred. Read More

Breast Cerclage: An Innovative Expedient for Perimammary Dehiscence Healing.

J Am Coll Clin Wound Spec 2017 1;9(1-3):10-13. Epub 2018 Jun 1.

IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi - Università degli Studi di Milano, Plastic Surgery Department, Via Galeazzi 4, 20161 Milan, Italy.

The perimammary zone is a critical area for healing, due to high incidence of dehiscences, expecially sternal ones. Although deep sternal wound complications are nowadays less common after cardiac surgery, in some at risk patients, dehiscences still represent important complications of major cardiac or vascular surgeries and they are directly correlated to an increased risk of patient's morbidity and mortality. A heavy breast represents a source of tension on the perimammary wound, inhibiting or delaying a complete recovery. Read More
