Abstract

Breast carcinoma is nowadays considered a systemic disease rather than a local one. This basic change of attitude has resulted in a change of treatment protocols. Thus, Halsted radical mastectomy has been almost completely replaced by less traumatic techniques such as modified mastectomy and tumorectomy, either of which can be followed by radiotherapy. The effectiveness of such protocols is proved by national and international statistics. In this article, the authors, on the basis of recent studies and of the over 200 patients they have treated, discuss the possibility of reconstructive surgery using the patient's tissues. A satisfactory breast reconstruction is thus achieved even after large excision or in the case of radiated tissues. The myocutaneous flap of rectus abdominis seems to be ideal in this type of reconstruction.
