REVIEW
Dries Opsomer, Koenraad van Landuyt
Autologous breast reconstruction can be challenging in mastectomy patients who are not eligible for a deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap reconstruction. Depending on body habitus, alternative donor sites for free flap transfer can be found on the back, the thighs, and in the gluteal area. These alternative flaps can demand a higher level of expertise, which should be mastered by the modern day reconstructive microsurgeon. The flap choice should be tailored individually to each patient and should not be limited by the difficulty of the surgery...

This article describes the use of implant-enhanced and total-autologous latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps in breast reconstruction. It addresses the indications for use of this reconstruction alternative, which have recently been expanded thanks to the advent of high-volume fat grafting. Given its straightforward dissection, reliable vascular pedicle, variety of approaches, and potential for excellent aesthetic results, use of latissimus dorsi flaps may be considered among first-line options in selected patients...

The authors document their experience in the use of synthetic 100% bioresorbable surgical mesh (TIGR Matrix, Novus Scientific, Uppsala, Sweden) in breast reconstruction as well as in breast aesthetic surgery. They performed a retrospective review on patients who underwent implant-based breast reconstruction as well as patients who underwent breast reduction mammoplasty procedures with the use of TIGR Matrix Surgical Mesh. When compared with other synthetic but nonresorbable meshes, it appears to show a potentially lower seroma and infection rates, but most importantly, a lower rate of revisional and mesh explantation surgeries...

REVIEW
Michael R Zenn
The advent of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) has changed the way implant reconstruction is performed and has opened the door to muscle-sparing techniques that can be performed as an NSM (nipple-sparing mastectomy) with DTI (direct to implant) with excellent cosmesis and less patient morbidity. The article discusses differences in types of ADMs and outlines some current strategies and controversies with ADM use.

REVIEW
Mitchell Brown, James D Namnoum
Today's demographic of the breast reconstruction patient is younger, often prophylactic or at an early stage of diagnosis, and is more likely to be bilateral. These factors combined with an increase in breast implant options, internal support matrices, fat transfer, technologies for intraoperative real time assessment of tissue perfusion, and an increasing appreciation for morbidity associated with autogenous procedures have resulted in an increase in the percentage of women seeking alloplastic breast reconstruction...

Breast cancer surgical treatment nowadays includes oncoplastic surgery. It is a reliable oncologic surgical treatment, which also prevents functional and aesthetic sequelae, thus improving the patient's quality of life and satisfaction. Numerous techniques have been described, with different levels of complexity and technicality. Their indications differ depending on the global breast volume and the degree of ptosis, on the tumor volume compared with the breast volume, and on the tumor location. This article describes the authors' many years of experience of breast cancer treatment using oncoplastic surgery...

REVIEW
Jordi Riba, Santiago Escriva de Romani, Jaume Masia
This article aims to determine the impact of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on immediate breast reconstruction by assessing their compatibility for oncological safety and the incidence and management of postoperative complications. A review of scientific publications published between 2009 and 2017 was undertaken. The relationship between neoadjuvant chemotherapy and immediate breast reconstruction was analyzed to compile and assess the potential interaction between the procedures. The search was limited to English language publications, but there were no limiting factors at the level of study typology...

The article summarizes the available evidence regarding clinical decision making in breast reconstruction from the patient perspective of satisfaction and health-related quality of life. A review of generic and specific patient reported outcome measures is provided. Important components of breast reconstruction care are compared, such as timing of reconstruction, autologous and implant-based reconstruction, and the use of nipple-sparing and skin-sparing mastectomy. This evidence-based summary will be useful to guide clinicians when discussing breast reconstruction with their patients...

REVIEW
Marlene Sue-Fen See, Jian Farhadi
Patients who undergo breast reconstruction experience higher complication rates if they have had a history of radiotherapy. However, implant-based reconstruction confers significantly higher complication and reconstruction failure rates compared with autologous reconstruction. This article analyses the factors that contribute to the complications of the different breast reconstruction modalities and the strategies described to mitigate these problems.

Bradley S Eisemann, Aldona J Spiegel
Breast cancer affects nearly every woman either personally or through a family member or friend. Awareness of associated familial and genetic risks has been steadily increasing over the last decade. Bilateral risk-reduction mastectomy seeks to decrease the incidence and mortality of breast cancer in women without abnormality but with elevated risk of developing cancer. Contralateral risk-reduction mastectomy aims to decrease the incidence of contralateral breast cancer in women diagnosed with unilateral breast cancer...

REVIEW
Emmanuel Delay, Andreea Carmen Meruta, Samia Guerid
Complete breast reconstruction with fat grafting is an appealing technique because it does not add scars or use flaps, is autologous, and has the secondary benefit of liposuction. It is a multiple stage surgery and usually requires balancing of the contralateral breast. After using this technique since 2001, the authors narrowed the indications, the ideal candidate being a patient with small breasts and enough donor sites for up to 4 or 5 lipomodeling sessions. Breast reconstruction with fat grafting alone in total breast reconstruction has very limited indications, because lipomodeling in combination with other autologous reconstruction gives very nice results...

REVIEW
Emmanuel Delay, Samia Guerid, Andreea Carmen Meruta
The treatment of sequelae after conservative breast cancer treatment can be a challenge. Lipomodeling, although controversial in the beginning, is a safe technique that can help in the treatment of these deformities, without an important impact on the imaging surveillance. Depending on the severity of the deformity, one or several sessions of fat transfer can be required. The technique is easy and reproducible, but before obtaining satisfying results with a low complication rate, a learning curve should be completed...

REVIEW
Tulin D Cil, David McCready
The armamentarium of the modern breast surgeon includes the time-tested procedures of modified radical mastectomy and lumpectomy with sentinel lymph node biopsy with postoperative radiation, but has evolved to include several options that produce excellent oncologic endpoints and improved cosmesis. These options include skin- and nipple-sparing mastectomies with immediate reconstruction as well as oncoplastic procedures that allow larger excisions and better postoperative breast shape. This article provides an overview of these modern surgical approaches for breast cancer treatment...

REVIEW
Charles Scott Hultman, Michael W Neumeister
This article explores the functioning of highly effective teams in burn care. Critical to the success of the team is the health of burn care providers, who can experience burnout. Wellness must be promoted by health care organizations, which, in turn, are responsible for the health of the populations they serve. Professionalism not only frames the social covenant between patients and burn care physicians but may also serve as a critical force in protecting against burnout and promoting wellness.

Health care-associated infections in burn patients, from ventilator-associated pneumonia to skin and soft tissue infections, can substantially compromise outcomes, because these complications are associated with longer lengths of stay, increased morbidity and mortality, and greater direct medical costs. Health care-associated infections are largely preventable, through surveillance, education, appropriate hand hygiene, and culture change, especially for device-related infections. Systems-based practice, which allows individuals and clinical microsystems to navigate and improve the macro health care system, may be one of the most powerful skill sets to effect change, permitting a shift in culture toward patient safety and quality improvement...

Chronic neuropathic pain after burn injury may have multiple causes, such as direct nerve injury, nerve compression, or neuroma formation, and can significantly impair quality of life and limit functional recovery. Management includes a team-based approach that involves close collaboration between occupational and physical therapists, plastic surgeons, and experts in chronic pain, from neurology, anesthesia, psychiatry, and physiatry. Carefully selected patients with an anatomic cause of chronic neuropathic pain unequivocally benefit from surgical intervention...
