Acellular Dermal Matrix in Breast Reconstruction

2016-07-19 02:23:21 | BioPortfolio


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. The efficacy of such allogenic dermal matrix can be advantageous when compared to current treatment options, however, this has to be proved.


This is a prospective study, where patients undergoing breast reconstruction surgery using acellular dermal matrix (ADM) with expander use in first phase of reconstruction will be included. The permanent breast implants will be implanted approximately half year during second surgery. Acellular dermal matrix is a soft tissue graft that is formed by decellularization, however with intact extracellular dermal matrix. Such structure is able to re-create adequate skeleton for host cells with subsequent incorporation and revascularization. The safety and appropriateness of such ADM in breast reconstruction surgery will be analyzed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A secreted matrix metalloproteinase that is believed to play a role in EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX remodeling and cell fate determination during normal and pathological processes. Matrix metalloproteinase 11 was originally isolated in primary BREAST NEOPLASMS and may be involved in the process of tumorigenesis.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
