Endoscopic Delayed Breast Reconstruction With Expanders and Implants via the Axillary Incision Made for Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy or Lymphadenectomy

Conclusions Endoscopic delayed breast reconstruction with insertion of implants through the axillary incision for sentinel node biopsy or lymphadenectomy is safe and feasible. It achieves complete intraoperative expansion, symmetry between the volumes of the breasts during the first stage, and avoids problems with the scar and the risk of extrusion, as the scar is placed remotely in the axilla.

We report PMPS in a 39-year-old patient after revision operation of breast reduction surgery. Postoperatively, the patient showed symptoms of severe persistent pain, swelling, cutaneous temperature changes, and hyperhidrosis in the affected breast. Subcutaneous infiltration with triamcinolone acetonide and prilocaine only relieved the symptoms temporarily. Botox injections did not relieve her symptoms of sweating either. Two intercostal nerve branches were identified with ultrasonography and dissected in general anesthesia. This procedure relieved her symptoms. Surgeons should consider CRPS and PMPS as differential diagnos...

Publication date: Available online 27 March 2018Source: European Journal of Obstetrics &Gynecology and Reproductive BiologyAuthor(s): Filip E.F. Thiessen, Wiebren A.A. Tjalma, Thierry TonduAbstractConservative breast surgery followed by irradiation, often referred to as Breast conserving therapy (BCT), has replaced modified radical mastectomy for the treatment of early stage invasive breast cancer and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). About 10% to 40% of the patients treated with BCT have poor cosmetic outcome results. Small tumours in large breasts can be successfully treated by lumpectomy and radiotherapy, with good c...

Authors: Rancati A, Angrigiani C, Dorr J, Aquaviva J, Nava MB, Catanuto G, Rocco N, Rancati A, Curutchet P Abstract Advances in reconstructive breast surgery with new materials and techniques now allow us to offer patients the best possible cosmetic results without the risks associated with oncological control of the disease. These advances, in both oncological and plastic surgery, have led to a new field, oncoplastic breast surgery, which enables us to undertake large resections and, with advance planning, and prevent subsequent deformities. This is particularly important when more than 30% of the breast volume is...

CONCLUSIONS: The overall complication rate after oncoplastic breast reduction was markedly higher than that in nationally published data for breast-conserving surgery. The complication rate resembled more closely the complication rate after bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. No risk factors were associated with major or overall complications. Age and pulmonary disease were associated with minor complications. Patients should be selected and counseled appropriately when considering oncoplastic breast reduction.

Authors: Bertozzi N, Pesce M, Santi PL, Raposio E Abstract Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in Western populations, affecting 12.5% of women, with 1.38 million patients per year. Breast-conserving surgery followed by postoperative radiotherapy replaced the radical and modified-radical procedures of Halsted and Patey as the standard of care for early-stage breast cancer once the overall and disease-free survival rates of breast-conserving surgery were demonstrated to be equivalent to those of mastectomy. However, excision of>20% of breast tissue, low or centrally located cancer, and large-sized brea...

Conclusions: The use of stromal vascular fraction might be more beneficial to reconstructive operations following mastectomies compared with cosmetic corrections of the healthy breast. Future studies are required to examine the potential risk factors associated with its use. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, V.

This study aimed to compare the complication profile for oncoplastic breast reduction versus reduction for benign macromastia. Methods: A retrospective review of our experience with oncoplastic breast reduction was performed. This represented a consecutive series of 118 patients undergoing bilateral breast reduction during the 7-year study period from March 2005 to March 2012. There were 64 patients identified who underwent oncoplastic breast reduction. Patients were determined to be a good candidate for breast conservation therapy if it was felt that clear surgical margins could be obtained without mastectomy. Postoperati...

CONCLUSIONS: The fat necrosis lesion is a classic phenomena, and can be a source of inconveniences for the patients and the surgeons after breast surgery. All the efforts should be directed to avoid fat necrosis. However, fat necrosis is not rare and the surgeon should learn to resolve it without worrying the patient or asking for expensive exams.
