Autologous breast reconstruction is associated with long-term patient satisfaction that is superior to implant-based approaches. Occasionally, however, patients who desire autologous reconstruction pr...
The purpose of this study was to characterize beliefs and practice patterns for breast cancer reconstruction among physicians who treat patients with breast cancer, in order to delineate current clini...
To share our experience of extra-levator abdominoperineal excision (ELAPE) for low rectal cancer, focusing on perineal repair with biological mesh.
Although autogenous tissue-based breast reconstruction has been widely used in the past decade, implant-based breast reconstruction is more often used in Taiwan because Asian women are generally slend...
Although approximately 57% of breast cancer (BC) diagnoses are in older patients (>60 years), only 4.1-14% receives breast reconstruction (BR). This has been attributed to physician concerns about ope...
This study compares the outcome using a biological mesh (Veritas®) compared to a non biological mesh (TIGR®) in immediate breast reconstruction.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the complication rate and post-surgical appearance differ based on what type of mesh is used for breast reconstruction surgery.
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate a new two-stage approach (delayed-immediate reconstruction) to breast reconstruction in women who may require post-mastectomy radiat...
The rationale for present trial conception and design moves forward from the assumption that a subcutaneous, pre-pectoral reconstruction by means of soft tissue replacement devices is feas...

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
