The objective of this article is to document whether DIRT can accurately map the position of the perforators and measure their influence on the perfusion of the flap in order to select the best perforators to improve the outcome of breast reconstructions with free DIEP flaps. A systematic review of the literature published between January 1998 and November 23th 2018 was conducted regarding the possible benefit of dynamic infrared thermography (DIRT) in DIEP-flap breast reconstructions.The databases PubMed and Web of Science were used to search for qualified articles. Inclusion criteria were women who underwent a breast rec...

For the past 20 years, the Medical Design Excellence Awards have celebrated medical products that improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare. Our finalists this year carry on this tradition, while also keeping in step with today’s high-tech digital and consumer trends. With the help of our esteemed jurors, we have identified four key trends in this year’s group of finalists: risk reduction; faster, more-efficient healthcare delivery; the influence of the Internet of Things; and the consumerization of healthcare. We’ve been tracking a few of these trends in past awards programs, so they’re n...

A 68-year-old woman with a recent history of blurring in the left eye had undergone mastectomy for breast cancer 20 years ago. A series of bone metastases started 5 years after her diagnosis. Examination of the optic nerve head of the left eye revealed an isolated peripapillary mass. Indocyanine green angiography displayed vessels within the mass, and fluorescein angiography demonstrated hyperfluorescence of the mass from vascular leakage plus lobular spots of blocked fluorescence. B-scan ultrasound revealed a hyperechoic-elevated nodular mass on the optic disc.

Conclusions: Though the internal mammary perforators are anatomically consistent, their use as recipients in free tissue transfer for breast reconstruction eventually rests on multiple variables.

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 wi...
