Breast Reconstruction

Introduction:

     Breast cancer is the most common cancer of female population in Taiwan. The incidence of breast cancer increased markedly in recent decades and changed from 14 per hundred thousand populations in 1991 to 70.7 in 2014. This indicated more than eleven thousand new breast cancer patients in 2014. Under well medical care, the five-year survival rate of breast cancer can be as high as 90%.

     Although there are several methods for management of breast cancer, mastectomy still is one of the choice in many patients. Ablation of breast cancer always resulted in deformities of the breast and / or chest wall. The breast is one of the most characteristic symbol of women, it is necessary to reconstruct one otherwise there are physical and psychological problems.

     We performed autologous tissue breast reconstruction with pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap. The reconstruction was performed immediately after radical mastectomy. Two operations can be finished within 7 – 8 hours.
