BACKGROUND: Tissue expansion is frequently used in reconstructive surgery. Although the surgical procedure is typically considered simple, reported complication rates of tissue expansions exceed 40%. There is little evidence concerning risk factors for complications in tissue expansion in body regions other than breast. The aim was to determine risk factors for complications in non-breast tissue expansion. METHODS: 34 patients treated with subcutaneous tissue expanders between 2005 and 2014 were analyzed...

Human milk is a dynamic source of nutrients and bioactive factors; unique in providing for the human infant's optimal growth and development. The growing infant's immune system has a number of developmental immune deficiencies placing the infant at increased risk of infection. This review focuses on how human milk directly contributes to the infant's innate immunity. Remarkable new findings clarify the multifunctional nature of human milk bioactive components. New research techniques have expanded our understanding of the potential for human milk's effect on the infant that will never be possible with milk formulas...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing techniques have improved the aesthetics of reconstruction following mastectomy, but nipple necrosis complicates up to 37% of procedures, distressing patients, delaying adjuvant therapy, and compromising outcomes. No method reliably detects nipple necrosis better than clinical assessment of tissue perfusion. We prospectively assessed the accuracy of intraoperative indocyanine green laser angiography to predict nipple necrosis. METHODS: Twenty consecutive women undergoing immediate tissue expander breast reconstruction following 32 nipple-sparing mastectomies underwent indocyanine green fluorescence imaging to assess nipple perfusion immediately before and after intraoperative tissue expansion...

BACKGROUND: Soft-tissue support devices are used during breast reconstruction. This study investigated long-term clinical data following SERI Surgical Scaffold (SERI) implantation, a bioresorbable, silk-derived scaffold for soft-tissue support. METHODS: This was a prospective, multicenter study in 103 subjects who received SERI during stage 1 of 2-stage breast reconstruction with subpectoral tissue expander placement (Natrelle Style 133V; Allergan plc, Dublin, Ireland) followed by subpectoral breast implant placement...

BACKGROUND: Approximately one-third of women diagnosed with breast cancer undergo mastectomy with subsequent implant-based or autogenous tissue-based reconstruction. Potential complications include infection, capsular contracture, and leak or rupture of implants with necessity for explantation. Skin rashes are infrequently described complications of patients who undergo mastectomy with or without reconstruction. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of breast cancer patients referred to the Dermatology Service for diagnosis and management of a rash post-mastectomy and expander or implant placement or transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap reconstruction was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Options for breast reconstructions enclose autologous tissue transfers or implants. Fat grafting is gaining more interest in this specific field of breast surgery. This study concentrates on the technique and aesthetic results of breast reconstruction with fat grafts combined with implants, in women who have undergone total mastectomy. METHODS: Breast reconstructions (n = 23) was performed using a protocol of intratissular expansion with serial deflation-lipofilling...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Two staged tissue expander-implant with acellular dermal matrix (TE/I + ADM) and deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap are the most common implant and autologous methods of reconstruction in the U.S. Implant-based techniques are disproportionally more popular, partially due to its presumed cost effectiveness. We performed a comprehensive cost analysis to compare TE/I + ADM and DIEP flap. METHODS: A comparative cost analysis of TE/I + ADM and DIEP flap was performed...

BACKGROUND: Nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) with immediate prosthetic reconstruction is routinely performed due to 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, due to 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 (ADM) coverage...

BACKGROUND: In breast reconstruction using a tissue expander (TE), sufficient coverage of the TE with the pectoralis major (PM) muscle, particularly with a musculofascial flap, is highly important for avoiding postoperative complications. In patients in whom the PM is thin, intraoperative trauma often occurs, leading to troublesome repair. The present study aimed to investigate the usefulness of preoperative measurement of PM thickness in planning of breast reconstruction using a TE. METHODS: In this case-control study, we identified 68 patients (70 breasts) with mammary carcinoma treated with simple mastectomy and TE insertion from April 2014 to December 2016...

Without early diagnosis and treatment, many lives are lost to breast cancer. Increased breast cancer awareness has facilitated research to guide health care providers toward improving patient outcomes. Research in diagnostic and treatment modalities has expanded to focus on improving the quality of life for patients with breast cancer who are living longer than expected. Providers can offer patients with nonpalpable breast lesions new screening techniques and improved treatment options, including radioactive seed localization lumpectomy...

REVIEW
Timothy J Cole, Morag J Young
The mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) mediates the actions of two important adrenal corticosteroid hormones, aldosterone and cortisol. The cell signalling roles of the MR in vivo have expanded enormously since the cloning of human MR gene 30 years ago and the first MR gene knockout in mice nearly 20 years ago. Complete ablation of the MR revealed important roles postnatally for regulation of kidney epithelial functions, with MR-null mice dying 1-2 weeks postnatally from renal salt wasting and hyperkalaemia, with elevated plasma renin and aldosterone...

PURPOSE: We introduce a computational method to simultaneously estimate size, location and blood perfusion of the cancerous breast lesion from the surface temperature data. METHODS: A 2D computational phantom of axisymmetric tumorous breast with six tissue layers, epidermis, papillary dermis, reticular dermis, fat, gland, muscle layer and spherical tumour was used to generate surface temperature distribution and thereby estimate tumour characteristics iteratively using an inverse algorithm based on Levenberg-Marquardt method...

INTRODUCTION: The Breast reconstruction Risk Assessment (BRA) Score estimates patient-specific risk for postsurgical complications using an individual's unique combination of preoperative variables. In this report, we externally validate the BRA Score models for surgical site infection, seroma, and explantation in a large sample of intra-institutional patients who underwent prosthetic breast reconstruction. METHODS: We reviewed all initiated tissue expander/implant reconstructions by the senior authors from January 2004 to December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy permits complete preservation of the nipple-areola complex with excellent aesthetic results and with oncologic safety similar to that associated with traditional mastectomy techniques. However, outcomes have not been directly compared for tissue expander-, immediate implant-, and autologous tissue-based breast reconstruction after nipple-sparing mastectomy. METHODS: All patients undergoing nipple-sparing mastectomy from 2006 to June of 2016 were identified at a single institution...

Nipple-sparing mastectomies (NSMs) are increasingly used in the surgical treatment of patients with breast cancer and for prevention of breast cancer. The present study was performed to review the outcomes of patients undergoing NSMs at a single large university setting. A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients undergoing NSMs from 2008-2014. Charts were reviewed for demographic data and patient characteristics. Tumor and breast size, cancer recurrence and complications were also evaluated...

BACKGROUND: In immediate tissue expander reconstruction following total mastectomy for breast cancer, indocyanine green angiography (ICGA)-guided skin trimming is useful for the prevention of complications. However, instances of unclear ICGA contrast can occur with this method, which are difficult to judge as to whether preventive trimming is warranted. To further improve the mastectomy flap necrosis rate, more accurate objective parameters are necessary. METHODS: The degree of clinical improvement was compared between 81 patients trimmed according to the surgeon's judgment (non-ICGA group) and 100 patients with ICGA-guided trimming (ICGA group)...

PURPOSE: Rates of implant failure, wound healing delay, and infection are higher in patients having radiation therapy (RT) after tissue expander (TE) and permanent implant reconstruction. We investigated pretreatment risk factors for TE implant complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 127 breast cancer patients had TE reconstruction and radiation. For 85 cases of bilateral TE reconstruction, the non-irradiated breast provided an internal control. Comparison of differences in means for continuous variables used analysis of variance, then multiple pairwise comparisons with Bonferroni correction of p value...

BACKGROUND: In breast reconstructive surgery, the inframammary fold (IMF) is an essential component of breast identity. The lack of the IMF following previous mastectomy requires restoration. We have developed a new IMF reconstruction technique using the posterior sheet (PS) of the expander capsule. This article presents our 10-year experience of performing this original technique during two-stage breast reconstruction. METHODS: Preoperatively, the midline, lateral, and medial borders (MBs) of the implant pocket and the new IMF line were marked...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is a prevalent operation for patients with breast cancer. Indications have been limited to tumors accessible via radial, infra-mammary, or periareolar incisions out of concern for oncologic and technical safety. We study an alternative approach to NSM based on tumor ultrasound-guided incisions (TUGI) and report its oncologic and technical outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review examined patients who underwent TUGI NSM between 2013 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Implant infections in the setting of breast reconstruction present a significant setback for patients with breast cancer. Traditional management of implant infections is predicated on the operative removal of the implant and delayed replacement. Another option for implant infection management has emerged in which the soft tissue infection is neutralized, the implant is removed, the surgical site is washed out, and a new implant replaced immediately. In this study, we present our findings with the implementation of this technique and an algorithm for choosing which patients are the most appropriate candidates on the basis of a retrospective review...
