Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction: A Fad or Here to Stay?

Summary of "Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction: A Fad or Here to Stay?"

Prepectoral breast reconstruction has rapidly gained attention as a new technique for implant-based breast reconstruction. It is essentially a modernization of an old technique made possible by the use of marketable products, primarily dermal matrices and cohesive silicone gel implants. The rapid dissemination of its benefits, not only to physicians, but also to the general public and referring physicians, leading to widespread adoption, is in part due to a combination of marketing and social media/Internet influences. This review will summarize the recent peer-reviewed literature to provide facts for the reconstructive surgeon to decide whether this technique is a fad or a useful option in implant-based breast reconstruction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical reconstruction of the breast including both augmentation and reduction.

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.

In health care reimbursement, especially in the prospective payment system, those patients who require an unusually long hospital stay or whose stay generates unusually high costs.

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).
