  Breast reconstruction after mastectomy has evolved over the last century to be an integral component in the therapy for patients with breast reconstruction originally was designed to reduce postmastectomy complications and to correct chest wall deformity, but its value has been recognized to extend past this limited view of goals for patients undergoing reconstruction are. Lower Abdominal Bulge After Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap (DIEP) Breast Reconstruction Maurice Y. Nahabedian, MD, FACS,* and Bahram Momen, PhD† Abstract: The etiology of lower abdominal bulge following breast reconstruction with the DIEP flap is uncertain. Most studies report an incidence that ranges from % to 5%. The purpose.

At times, reconstruction is temporized by placing a tissue expander in the mastectomy pocket that will be removed after radiation therapy or at the time of the delayed TRAM flap reconstruction. 9. The size and extent of the mastectomy defect will also determine the type of breast reconstruction to be performed. The flap is sometimes known as the transverse upper gracilis (TUG), although this can be misleading since the flap as originally described for other forms of reconstruction has been modified to reconstruct breasts. We prefer the term Inner Thigh Flap. Tissue from the inner thigh has a significant amount fat of that can be sculpted to form a breast.

Introduction. Breast reconstruction with autologous tissue can generally achieve more durable and natural results than with the use of implants alone. 1 When well designed and executed, the TRAM flap offers the advantage of being able to provide large soft tissue volume. In large breasted women undergoing unilateral reconstruction, this technique offers improved aesthetics over implant. Your Breast Reconstruction Option: Free Flap (Abdominal) There are 3 types of free abdominal flaps: TRAM; DIEP; SIEA; It is called a “free” flap because the entire flap is lifted off the body and moved to the breast area. No part of the flap stays attached to the stomach area (abdomen).

Technique. The Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous free-flap, created from the transverse abdominal muscle, is a breast reconstruction flap harvested from the abdomen of the TRAM flap is composed of skin, adipocyte fat, and the musculus rectus abdominis, which is perfused (irrigated) by the deep inferior epigastric artery and by the deep inferior epigastric lty: plastic surgeon.

The transverse upper gracilis (TUG) flap uses tissue from the inner upper thigh near the natural groin crease, as well as the “gracilis” muscle, to create breast tissue. This is usually done if patients do not have adequate skin and tissue in the abdomen or buttock region, or have had previous abdominal surgeries that may have interfered.

Reconstruction Using Abdominal Tissue Breast reconstruction using tissue from the abdomen (stomach) to re-create a breast mound provides the most natural result of any technique.

The choice of tissue to be moved from your stomach to your chest to re-create a breast mound will vary, depending on the blood vessels that supply the tissue of your. A rectus abdominis musculocutaneous island flap for breast reconstruction following mastectomy is presented.

The vascular anatomy of the abdominal wall has been clinically studied in patients undergoing abdominal lipectomy. Cadaver dissections are shown, demonstrating the anatomy, arc of rotation, and design alternatives of the rectus abdominis Cited by: Breast cancer is a common diagnosis, with new invasive cases and in situ cases diagnosed annually, according to the American Cancer Society data in Despite its incidence, it is commonly a treatable disease, with a 90% 5-year survival rate and an 83% year survival rate.

Currently, 3 million women are living with the disease. Mastectomy is the common measure for both Cited by: 1. The pedicled TRAM flap, with a transversely oriented skin island, is the most common flap used for autologous postmastectomy breast reconstruction. It is suited for patients desiring autologous breast reconstruction from an abdominal donor site and patients with an inadequate skin envelope and/or ptotic contralateral breast to which they.

Breast Reconstruction: Free Flap Techniques Maurice Y. Nahabedian INTRODUCTION The options for breast reconstruction following mastectomy continue to expand.

Prosthetic devices and pedicled musculocutaneous flaps provide patients with good outcomes but have limitations that preclude their use in patients with a history of cigarette smoking or prior radiation, or in patients who are overweight. The transverse abdominal island flap operation was the method of breast reconstruction after mastectomy and in chest wall reconstruction in patients from September to July The transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) island flap would appear to be ideal for breast reconstruction where a significant skin and muscle deficiency exists after mastectomy.

Breast reconstruction entered the modern era when Hartrampf, Scheflan, and Black introduced the transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap in This ingenious procedure reliably transfers autogenous tissue for reconstruction and has the added benefit of.

Transplantation of a transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap is a commonly used surgical procedure for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. An autologous myocutaneous flap consisting of abdominal skin, subcutaneous fat, the rectus abdominis muscle, and adjoining vasculature is used for reconstruction of the breast following mastectomy.

The TRAM flap procedure uses tissue and muscle from the tummy. Sometimes an implant is used with this type of flap, but some women have enough tissue in this area to shape the breast so that an implant isn’t needed. The skin, fat, blood vessels, and at least one abdominal muscle are moved from the belly to the chest.

The TRAM flap procedure. Abstract. Inan upper transverse abdominal flap for breast reconstruction was described by Tai and coworkers, who gave the first description of this myocutaneous flap based on the deep superior epigastric vessels and their perforating vessels through the rectus muscle [].Author: Klaus-Dietrich Wolff, Frank Hölzle.

The transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap offers a versatile and reliable technique of repair provided certain anatomical, physiological and surgical principles are closely followed. The operative technique and technical details are described and by: 8. Transverse Abdominal Island Flap Technique for Breast Reconstruction by Carl Hartrampf 1 edition - first published in Not in Library.

DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforator) flap refers to the use of excess lower abdominal skin and fat to reconstruct the breast. The incision for this procedure is similar to an abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). Your plastic surgeon sculpts the excess skin and fat that is removed to recreate the breast.

Immediate Breast Reconstruction with abdominal advancement flap and fascia of the Serratus - JF. Honart. Since its introduction, the pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap (TRAM flap) became a popular procedure for postmastectomy breast reconstruction.

Preference for the pedicled TRAM flap was based on its sufficient volume for reconstruction, natural appearing result, acceptable scar of the donor site, and the avoidance of Author: Hidekazu Fukamizu, Masao Fujiwara, Takahide Mizukami, Takeshi Nagata. Transverse abdominal island flaps often turn blue in the operating room when transferred to the chest wall.

Acute blue flaps are caused by venous congestion. In most cases this resolves spontaneously. Persistent venous congestion of the flap, however, is dangerous and must be corrected promptly.

This is done by keeping the patient warm, by appropriate dissection around the rib cage and Cited by: 3. Transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap surgery was developed decades ago and is no longer recommended or performed at the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, because of the risk of hernia or abdominal bulge and the limit on lifting anything over 20 pounds post surgery.
