The impact of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on the surgical outcomes of immediate breast reconstruction remains controversial. The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of complications of immediate deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap breast reconstructions in patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy compared to patients without neoadjuvant chemotherapy prior to surgery.
This article was published in the following journal.

The low deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap was first introduced in 2016 as it had aesthetic advantages over the conventional DIEP flap. With our experience of over 100 low DIEP flap pr...
Contralateral breast augmentation during unilateral breast reconstruction is a good option for women with small breasts. In patients with adequate lower abdominal tissues, the deep inferior epigastric...
Breast reconstruction with DIEP flap can be associated with complications such as fat necrosis. Our objective was to assess the safety and efficacy of fluorescent angiography with indocyanine green (F...
In deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap breast reconstructions, a free tissue flap from the abdomen is shaped into a breast and transferred to the thorax. Survival of this free flap relies ...
To evaluate which factors may influence magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performance in the detection of pathologic complete response (pCR) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC).
The purpose of this study is to analyze an institution's experience with starting a subspecialized DIEP flap program and to determine whether other hospitals would benefit from instituting...
Bilateral DIEP flap needs two groups of vessel pedicles. We suppose that the bilateral DIEP flap may survive on one vessel pedicle by means of interconnection of bilateral DIEA. This study...
It is a single-center, prospective, randomized and controlled study focused in microsurgical autologous breast reconstruction. It is about applying indocyanine green (ICG) angiography for ...
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...
Breast reconstruction is an integral part of breast cancer care. There are two main types of breast reconstruction: alloplastic (using implants), and autologous (using patient's tissue). T...
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
