A 43-year-old premenopausal female presented with a multicentric infiltrating lobular carcinoma of the left breast with axillary nodes metastasis. She underwent modified radical mastectomy with axillary lymph node dissection (level I and II) followed by a mixed autologous latissimus dorsi flap reconstruction with the addition of prosthesis. The final pathological analysis revealed a 6 cm invasive lobular carcinoma pT3N2aM0, grade III/III, estrogen and progesterone positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative, with 5/16 positive lymph nodes...

PURPOSE: The pedicled, descending-branch muscle-sparing latissimus dorsi (MSLD) flap has been widely used for breast reconstruction following total mastectomy. However, the superiority of the MSLD flap compared to the conventional latissimus dorsi (CLD) flap in preventing seroma formation has not been demonstrated. This study compares the morbidities related to seroma formation following pedicled MSLD flap and CLD flap breast reconstruction. METHODS: A total of 15 women who underwent partial mastectomy and immediate partial breast reconstruction with MSLD flaps were compared with 15 women under identical conditions with CLD flap breast reconstruction...

INTRODUCTION: Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) improves the quality of life of patients who undergo mastectomy. The latissimus dorsi flap (LDF) method provides particularly good aesthetic results, but its tolerance to subsequent radiotherapy remains unclear. We thus sought to assess tolerance and esthetic results and satisfaction, as reported by patients who underwent IBR by LDF with or without subsequent radiotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective case-control study in a population of women who were diagnosed with breast cancer between January 1999 and January 2014 and who had mastectomies with IBR by LDF without prostheses...

BACKGROUND: Reconstructive breast surgery has continued to evolve over the last decade with a key change being the adoption of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) as an adjunct for implant-based procedures. This retrospective observational study assesses the effect of ADMs on post-mastectomy reconstructive practice performed in a single institution. METHODS: We conducted a review of all patients undergoing breast reconstruction at a University Teaching Hospital for an 18-month period before and after adopting ADMs...

Karim Bourra, Samir El Mazouz
We report the case of a 16-year old patient presenting with giant, multinodular, mesenchymal tumor of the abdominal wall occupying the left abdominal region and measuring 25 cm on the vertical axis, 20 cm on the transverse axis, mobile when compared with the deep structures and gradually increasing in volume over childhood and neglected. After small biopsy, which showed desmoid tumor, the patient underwent complete surgical resection of the tumor with immediate reconstruction by free muscolo skin flap of the latissimus dorsi attached to the large blood vessels of the inguinal fold (left iliac artery and left external iliac vein), connected by termino lateral anastomosis...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative resident education is an integral mission of academic medical centers and serves as the basis for training the next generation of surgeons. The actual effort associated with teaching residents is unknown as it pertains to additional operative time. Using a large validated multi-institutional dataset, this study aims to quantify the effect of having a resident present in common plastic surgery procedures on operative time. Future directions for developing standardized methods to record and report teaching time are proposed, which can help inform prospective studies...

BACKGROUND: Central breast tumours are defined as tumours in the retroareolar area, or within 1.5-2.0 cm from the areolar edge. In the past, breast conservation therapy (BCT) for central breast tumours was considered controversial due to concerns regarding oncologic safety and cosmesis. Recent evidence does however suggest that oncoplastic techniques offer a cosmetically acceptable and safe alternative to mastectomy in these tumours. METHOD: Patients with central breast tumours (invasive and in situ) were identified from a breast cancer database of 431 patients who presented to the Netcare Breast Care Centre in Johannesburg over a one-year period (June 2015-June 2016)...

BACKGROUND: Breast reconstruction is an essential component in the treatment of breast cancer. Postoperative complications after breast reconstruction are common and affect patient satisfaction. Determining independent risk factors using patient characteristics could be advantageous for patient assessment and counseling. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 623 consecutive patients who underwent reconstruction with a deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP), latissimus dorsi flap (LD), lateral thoracodorsal flap (LTDF), or tissue expander with a secondary implant (EXP) in this study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Alterations in muscle activation and restricted shoulder mobility, which are common in breast cancer patients, have been found to affect upper limb function. The purpose of this study was to determine muscle activity patterns, and to compare the prevalence of abnormal patterns among the type of breast surgery. METHODS: In total, 274 breast cancer patients were recruited after surgery. Type of breast surgery was divided into mastectomy without reconstruction (Mastectomy), reconstruction with tissue expander/implant (TEI), latissimus dorsi (LD) flap, or transverse rectus abdominis flap (TRAM)...

Autologous breast reconstruction has become a standard option during the recovery of breast cancer survivors. Although pedicle damage is a rare complication of this procedure, extensive torsion or tension can lead to partial or total flap failure. We report a case of partial flap salvage after accidental transection of the pedicled blood supply within the intramuscular course of a latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap. This salvage technique involved microvascular anastomosis between the remaining vasculature of the latissimus dorsi pedicle and the serratus branch of the thoracodorsal artery and vein...

Paralytic lagophthalmos and smile dysfunction are serious complications of facial paralysis and various reconstructive procedures have been developed to treat them. Among these procedures, there is no doubt that dynamic procedures are more effective than static ones. The 1-stage simultaneous surgical treatment of these 2 dysfunctions with a dynamic procedure involving a single muscle would be ideal, but no such methods have been reported. In this article, we present a 1-stage method for the simultaneous surgical treatment involving the use of a dual latissimus dorsi muscle flap...

Even though DIEP-SIEA flaps or latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap are the most frequently used, a wide variety of flaps have been described for autologous breast reconstruction. Concerning the choice of donor-site, the aim is to prevent and to limit the morbidity. That is why the donor-site should be carefully chosen, according to the morphology of the patient. Lumbar artery perforator flap (LAP) is an option for breast reconstruction, but it is not well known and its use is limited. This study summarizes the authors' early experience with free LAP flap for breast reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Vascular injuries resulting in limb ischemia are traditionally treated acutely with autologous or prosthetic bypass grafts. Traumatic contaminated injuries with soft tissue and vascular segmental loss are challenging as prosthetic bypasses are at risk of erosion, infection, and occlusion; and autologous bypasses are at risk of desiccation, blow-out, infection, and clotting. We propose a novel approach to these injuries by using arterialized saphenous vein venous flow-through free flaps (S-VFTF) as an autologous bypass, and present the results of its application in a series of cases...

BACKGROUND: Some intractable cases of postcraniotomy infection, which can involve compromised skin, an open frontal air sinus, and residual epidural dead space, have been reported. In such cases, reconstructing the scalp and skull is challenging. METHODS: Between 2009 and 2016, the author treated 12 patients with recalcitrant postcraniotomy surgical site infections with latissimus dorsi (LD) free flaps. The patients' ages ranged from 37 to 79 years (mean, 63.5 years), and their underlying diseases included subarachnoid hemorrhaging (n = 5), brain tumors (n = 4), and cerebral arteriovenous malformations (n = 3)...

INTRODUCTION: Latissimus dorsi miniflap is a breast-conserving volume replacement technique for the reconstruction of large breast defects. While mammographic features of miniflap reconstruction have been described, little is known about the incidence, mode of presentation and size of local recurrence after this procedure. This study aimed to investigate the impact of latissimus dorsi miniflap reconstruction on the frequency, presentation and detection of local recurrence. METHODS: Clinical, radiological and pathological data were reviewed in 261 patients...
