'Reconstruction: Before or after postmastectomy radiotherapy?' A systematic review of the literature.
Eur. J. Cancer
PUBLISHED: 08-26-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The aim of this review is to investigate the effect of timing of the reconstruction and radiotherapy, with respect to complication rate and cosmetic outcome, with a special focus on the timing of the placement of the definite implant.

A novel therapeutic strategy for turban tumor: scalp excision and combined reconstruction with artificial dermis and split skin graft.
Int. J. Dermatol.
PUBLISHED: 11-21-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Brooke-Spiegler syndrome is a hereditary tumor predisposition disorder characterized by the development of cylindromas, trichoepitheliomas, and spiradenomas. Predilection sites of the disease are hair follicles and sweat glands of the head and neck. In some patients, the tumors can coalesce to so-called turban tumors, which then usually cause cosmetic, psychological, and functional impairment. A curative therapy is not yet available, and thus total scalp excision followed by split skin graft is evolving as a frequently applied therapy. However, this treatment can lead to the formation of a thin and vulnerable skin, which hampers wearing a wig. Therefore, a more robust and functional solution is preferable. Here, we report on a woman with a turban tumor who suffered enormously from the disease and had secluded herself from social life.

Equilibrium-phase high spatial resolution contrast-enhanced MR angiography at 1.5T in preoperative imaging for perforator flap breast reconstruction.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The aim was (i) to evaluate the accuracy of equilibrium-phase high spatial resolution (EP) contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) at 1.5T using a blood pool contrast agent for the preoperative evaluation of deep inferior epigastric artery perforator branches (DIEP), and (ii) to compare image quality with conventional first-pass CE-MRA.

Introducing the septocutaneous gluteal artery perforator flap: a simplified approach to microsurgical breast reconstruction.
Plast. Reconstr. Surg.
PUBLISHED: 02-03-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Consistent septocutaneous perforators exist between the gluteus maximus and medius muscles. The existence of these septocutaneous perforators obviates the need for any intramuscular dissection when elevating a gluteal artery perforator flap. In this study, the authors present their experience with the septocutaneous gluteal artery perforator (sc-GAP) flap for microsurgical breast reconstruction.

The effect of triclosan-coated sutures in wound healing. A double blind randomised prospective pilot study.
J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg
PUBLISHED: 06-30-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Wound infection and dehiscence are both major contributors to postoperative morbidity. One potential cause or co-factor is the use of suture material. A recently introduced subcutaneous suture is coated with triclosan (TC), an antiseptic drug. It is suggested to reduce wound complications.

Substantial chest-wall deformity following tissue expansion after radiotherapy.
Eur J Plast Surg
PUBLISHED: 04-06-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We present the case of a 54-year-old woman who underwent a two-stage breast reconstruction with a tissue expander after sustaining a lumpectomy and local radiotherapy for breast cancer. During expansion, the woman developed an abnormal concave deformity of the chest wall. Although respiratory or aesthetic consequences were expected, our patient reported only pain and was satisfied with the end result. Osteoporosis or local recurrence was excluded as predisposing factors, and radiotherapy was considered to be the causal factor in our patient. On the basis of this finding, we advise surgeons to take the risk of chest-wall deformity into consideration when planning a reconstruction with tissue expanders, especially in patients with a history of radiotherapy, and we recommend an alternative reconstructive method in this group of patients.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment for skin flap necrosis after a mastectomy: a case study.
Undersea Hyperb Med
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The rate of complications in immediate breast reconstruction is in 15% to 20% due to partial loss of the mastectomy skin flaps. In the case of skin necrosis or ischemia, a therapy that reduces skin loss could be of additional benefit. Hyperbaric oxygen has been used to treat compromised flaps and grafts, an indication recognized and reimbursed according to the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). So far, hyperbaric oxygen has not been previously reported as therapy for full-thickness breast skin flap necrosis on patients with a direct reconstruction with silicone implants after a skin-sparing mastectomy. This report presents such a case, in which a 52-year-old woman carrier of the BRCA2 mutation gene was successfully treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
