Breast reconstruction is a common procedure with over 86,000 breast reconstruction procedures performed in the United States in 2009. This is a 1.5-fold increase since 2007. Of these breas...
Primary Objective: • To describe postoperative static pain scores on the Pain Visual Analog Scale at Day 1 in a population of women undergoing bilateral mastectomy followed by immediate...
In this prospective study, breast capsule biopsy was performed in patients undergoing 2-stage expander-implant breast reconstruction to determine its use. Prospective clinical trial was de...
Tissue expander design in breast reconstruction has evolved substantially over the last 60 years. An insightful appreciation of breast aesthetics, coupled with competition among industry partners, has...
Traditional two-stage breast reconstruction involves placement of a textured surface tissue expander (TTE). Recent studies have demonstrated textured surface devices have higher propensity for bacteri...

Mastectomy flap necrosis (MFN) remains a challenging complication in immediate tissue expander breast reconstruction (ITEBR). Nitroglycerin ointment has been shown to reduce the incidence of MFN in a ...
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.
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
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).
A muscle protein localized in surface membranes which is the product of the Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy gene. Individuals with Duchenne muscular dystrophy usually lack dystrophin completely while those with Becker muscular dystrophy have dystrophin of an altered size. It shares features with other cytoskeletal proteins such as SPECTRIN and alpha-actinin but the precise function of dystrophin is not clear. One possible role might be to preserve the integrity and alignment of the plasma membrane to the myofibrils during muscle contraction and relaxation. MW 400 kDa.
