We encountered a very rare condition where the patient had a lymphocele under the skin envelope of the breast following mastectomy during the course of breast reconstruction with a tissue expander. The incidence rate of axillary lymphoceles is reported as 2.2-50% in breast cancer patients, but there have been no reports mentioning lymphoceles under the breast skin during the course of breast reconstruction with a prosthesis. The patient had a lymphocele in the lower lateral part of the breast following mastectomy and had multiple cellulitis-like inflammations...

BACKGROUND: The double capsule is a complication mostly described in aggressive macrotextured implants. Mechanical shear stress applied onto an immature periprosthetic capsule has been linked to their formation. The authors aim to demonstrate the role of bacterial phenotype and biofilm in the development of the double capsule. METHODS: Seven double capsules formed at the interface of macrotextured breast expander implants were studied using scanning electron microscopy...

John Y S Kim, Alexei S Mlodinow
Of the nearly 90,000 implant-based breast reconstructions performed in the United States, the majority use internal soft-tissue support. Aesthetically, these constructs may allow for better positioning of prosthesis, improve lower pole expansion, and increase projection. They may have particular utility in direct-to-implant, nipple-sparing mastectomies, and prepectoral reconstructions. In recent years, new permutations of acellular dermal matrices have evolved with diverse shapes, sizes, form-factor innovations, and processing characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Two-stage prosthetic breast reconstruction with initial insertion of a tissue expander followed by an implant after a period of inflation is a well-established breast reconstruction option. Most of the current literature concentrates on the immediate setting, and there are only a few reports into delayed cases, especially after postmastectomy radiotherapy (RT). We performed a retrospective review of our experience over a 12.5-year period. METHODS: Between June 1998 and December 2010, a total of 671 patients received prosthetic-only breast reconstruction...

Skin-sparing mastectomy and immediate implant-based breast reconstruction is technically a challenging procedures for women with large, ptotic breasts. This is usually performed using the Wise pattern incision resulting in an inverted T scar, which is associated with postoperative complications. The other challenge is obtaining adequate coverage of the prosthesis. We describe a technique that avoids the inverted T scar and provides a single horizontal scar with a double dermo-muscular layer coverage of the prosthesis...

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...

BACKGROUND: Classic techniques of delayed prosthetic breast reconstruction use the mastectomy scar as an access route. As a result, the filling of the expander must be postponed until the wounds have healed. This creates an asymmetry between the breasts with the volume changes caused by the filling of the expander, which may occur over several weeks and cause considerable discomfort. METHODS: Delayed breast reconstruction was performed via the axillary incision made for sentinel lymph node biopsy or lymphadenectomy with endoscopic assistance and detachment of the pectoralis major muscle...

PURPOSE: Hormone (anti-estrogen) therapy (HT) plays a major role in hormone receptor-positive breast cancer management. The latest guidelines propose to extend the duration of adjuvant treatment from 5 to 10 years. The association between HT and thromboembolic or microvascular complications during breast reconstruction has been investigated. However, while estrogens play a crucial role in wound healing, no study has assessed the impact of tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors on other postoperative complications, including wound healing complications...

A new advanced technology, noncontact diffuse correlation spectroscopy, has been recently developed for the measurement of tissue blood flow through analyzing the motions of red blood cells in deep tissues. This technology is portable, inexpensive, and noninvasive, and can measure up to 1.5-cm tissue depth. In this prospective study, the authors aimed to explore the use of this novel device in the prediction of mastectomy skin flap necrosis. The noncontact diffuse correlation spectroscopy device was used to measure mastectomy skin flap flow in patients undergoing mastectomy and immediate implant-based breast reconstruction before and immediately after mastectomy, and after placement of the prosthesis...

Breast lymphomas comprise a rare group of malignant breast tumors. Among these, a new entity has emerged as a potentially under-diagnosed disease. Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BI-ALCL) most often manifests as a late periprosthetic effusion between 1 and 10 years after the implantation of silicone or saline-filled breast prostheses. BI-ALCL is an anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative T-cell lymphoma that has a distinctively different clinical course than other breast lymphomas or ALCLs...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate prosthetic reconstruction is routinely performed because of excellent aesthetic results and safe oncologic outcomes. Typically, subpectoral expanders are placed, but in select patients, this can lead to significant postoperative pain and animation deformity, caused by pectoralis major muscle disinsertion and stretch. Prepectoral reconstruction is a technique that eliminates dissection of the pectoralis major by placing the prosthesis completely above the muscle with complete acellular dermal matrix coverage...
