The use of acellular dermal matrices and synthetic meshes is gaining popularity in direct-to-implant breast reconstruction, allowing the complete coverage of the prosthesis with greater pocket control...
Acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) have revolutionized alloplastic breast reconstruction. Furthering our knowledge of ADM biointegration will allow for improved design of these biomaterials. The ideal A...
Short-term cost-effectiveness of one-stage implant-based breast reconstruction with an acellular dermal matrix versus two-stage expander-implant reconstruction from a multicentre randomized clinical trial.
Implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR) is the most commonly performed reconstructive procedure and its economic impact is significant. This study aimed to analyse whether a direct one-stage IBBR w...
Nipple reconstruction is an essential, final stage in breast reconstruction. However, postoperative reduction in nipple projection often results in low patient satisfaction. The authors studied the ca...
Prepectoral breast reconstruction carries many benefits to patients, including its minimally invasive (muscle-sparing) nature, and its reduction in symptoms such as pain and animation deformity, relat...
Approximately 4,000 women undergo a mastectomy for breast cancer each year in the UK and around 1,500 will have an immediate breast reconstruction. Approximately half of these ladies will ...
Allogenic acellular dermal matrix has been used in burn injuries or abdominal walls reconstructions. However, it is solely used in breast reconstructions after breast carcinoma amputation....
Despite the popularity and proved safety of prepectoral implant-based reconstruction, there is little evidence on long-term results and variables which could influence surgical outcome. So...
Primary Hypothesis: 1. Alloderm and Dermamatrix have comparable complication rates when used for staged breast reconstruction Secondary hypotheses: 1. The complication rat...
This study will evaluate the performance of Alloderm RTU medium (LifeCell) vs. Cortiva 1mm Allograft Dermis (RTI Surgical®, Inc.). These are the thinnest versions of acellular dermal matr...
Tabular numerical representations of sequence motifs displaying their variability as likelihood values for each possible residue at each position in a sequence. Position-specific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are calculated from position frequency matrices.
Surgical reconstruction of the breast including both augmentation and reduction.
Freedom from exposure to danger and protection from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss. It suggests optimal precautions in the workplace, on the street, in the home, etc., and includes personal safety as well as the safety of property.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
Combined vaccines consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and an acellular form of PERTUSSIS VACCINE. At least five different purified antigens of B. pertussis have been used in various combinations in these vaccines.
