Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Breast Reconstruction With Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing Sizers

Background The goal of microsurgical breast reconstruction is to return to the precancer state, maximizing symmetry with less morbidity. This requires a long learning curve, in particular where modeling is concerned. In this context, reverse engineering technologies found an application, allowing the creation of molds that can be used during the surgery. Method We created 10 molds named DIEP sizers, which help to simplify deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap insetting. For this, we designed a virtual model using Geomagic X software to construct the sizers. Our model has a thorax circumference, breast projection, and footprint correspondent to an average of the measurements we collected from 15 patients undergoing such surgery. We made a comparative study between 2 groups each of 24 patients, using as comparison criteria surgical times in patients undergoing breast microsurgical reconstruction with or without DIEP sizers. In both groups, we included immediate and delayed reconstructions as well as monolateral, bilateral and monolateral with contralateral symmetrization. Result In all the cases we performed with DIEP sizers, we achieved an average time saving of 105 minutes in monolateral reconstruction, 80 minutes in monolateral reconstruction with contralateral symmetrization, and 120 minutes in bilateral reconstruction (P

Conclusion Prepectoral implant placement avoids many of the disadvantages of the traditional 2 stage subpectoral reconstruction, including pectoralis muscle dissection, animation deformity, and multiple surgeries. As the first comparative cost analysis study on the subject, our ADM-sparing direct-to-implant prepectoral reconstruction method costs 25% less than the traditional 2-stage subpectoral reconstruction with a comparable complication profile.

AbstractGender-affirming surgery is a group of surgical procedures that alters the physical appearance of a transgender person to resemble that socially associated with their identified gender. Masculinization and feminization surgeries include chest and breast surgery as well as genital reconstruction. The genital reconstruction surgeries have unique anatomic imaging features and are associated with complications that may require radiologic evaluation. This review provides a review of the imaging anatomy, expected findings, and complications associated with gender-affirming surgeries.

AbstractBackgroundNegative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a promising advance in the management of closed surgical incisions. NPWT application induces several effects locally within the wound including reduced lateral tension and improving lymphatic drainage. As a result, NPWT may improve wound healing and reduce surgical site complications. We aim to evaluate the efficacy of prophylactic application of NPWT in preventing surgical site complications for closed incisions in breast surgery.MethodsThis systematic review was reported according to PRISMA guidelines. The protocol was published in PROSPERO (CRD42018114625). Med...
