Recycling spare tissues: Splitting a bipedicled TRAM flap for reconstruction of the contralateral breast

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A new method of bipedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap splitting to reconstruct the contralateral breast 1 year after the first breast reconstruction is presented. This technique can be useful in cases of large salvage mastectomy for asynchronous breast cancers allowing a bilateral thoracic closure.
