Contemporary reconstructive modalities focus on breast anatomy and attempt to reconstruct breasts that are soft, of adequate shape, size, and symmetry. However, a functional component, i.e. sensation, has largely been ignored. Flap neurotization addresses this shortcoming. While we are still in search of the ideal surgical technique to achieve this goal, a novel approach that limits nerve harvest to the sensory branch only, thus, minimizing abdominal donor-site morbidity, is presented.

Patients with breast cancer frequently opt to undergo breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The timing and aesthetic outcome of the breast reconstruction may be affected by the need for radiation th...
The advantages of hybrid breast reconstruction, i.e. the combination of free tissue transfer with simultaneous implant placement, are well-known. In an attempt to further minimize morbidity and simpli...
Breast cancer is most commonly managed with a combination of tumor ablation, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. Despite the oncologic benefit of these treatments, the detrimental effect of radiation on s...
Current evidence suggests that patients who have latissimus dorsi (LD) breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer can experience long-term shoulder dysfunction. However, as there is ...
Locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) is traditionally treated with a multimodal approach of chemotherapy, surgery, and postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT). The advantages of immediate breast recons...
Over the past 10 years, there have been substantial improvements in breast reconstruction by plastic surgeons, and much has been achieved in aesthetic restoration after mastectomy. Advance...
The sensory recovery of the breast remains an undervalued aspect of breast reconstruction and surgical reinnervation is not regarded as a priority by most reconstructive surgeons. A prospe...
Rationale: To study the effects of mastectomy and autologous breast reconstruction on the sensation of the (reconstructed) breast, not only the peripheral reinnervation of the breast shoul...
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...
Breast reconstruction is an integral part of the management of patients with breast cancer and treated by total mastectomy. The aim of breast reconstruction is to get a satisfying aestheti...
