Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


60 omental grafts were performed in our department. 62% concerned breast cancer patients. Other grafts were undertaken for other cancers: head and neck, gynecologic, urologic and intestinal, skin and soft tissue tumors. These grafts were indicated for radionecrosis or chemonecrosis in 33 cases and for cancer recurrence in 26 cases (among whom 24 were previously irradiated). Only one graft was performed for lymphoedema treatment. Overall, 54 patients (83.5%) had successful grafts, and 6 (16.5%) had graft failures. According to the treated lesion we obtained 82% of successful treatment among patients treated for radio or chemonecrosis, and 92% for patients treated for recurrences.
