Prosthesis Concavity Contracture s/p radiation Evolution of Mastectomy: Radical – all lymph nodes, pectoralis major and minor muscles Modified radical – both pect left, but all nodes taken Skin sparing – pect left, more skin preserved Sentinel node biopsy – preservation of nodes Breast conservation – lumpectomy with radiation
Breast lumpectomy or breast conservation therapy is most used for Stage I and II cancers, survival rates for breast conservation with radiation similar to those with total mastectomy. Lumpectomy – removal of the cancer with negative margins, then remaining breast treated with 50Gy radiation. Cosmetic outcome can vary with size and location of tumor. A breast reduction can also be performed at the time of the lumpectomy for better aesthetic outcomes.
(should you show a TE placed then followed by an implant here?)
Some muscle is taken (muscle-sparing) or no muscle (bottom photo). This pt is a free TRAM, pre and post op photos for immediate reconstruction after mastectomy.
Vessel (artery and vein) anastomosis under microscope, suture used for anastomosis. Veins are usually coupled with a coupler device, arteries are sewn together with 9-0 nylon sutures, interrupted. Have video at end if desired.
One Pattern of SGAP flap
Patient info: (Previous abdominal surgery, no excess abdominal tissue. Right chest wall treated with radiation therapy. She underwent delayed reconstruction of right breast with IGAP, then 6 months later had prophylactic left mastectomy with immediate recon using IGAP flap), she then had a breast revision, followed by NAR.
AWESOME! YOU “WOW”ed them!!!
