Breast reduction surgery after coronary artery bypass grafting

Breast reduction surgery after coronary artery bypass grafting Breast reduction surgery is a frequently performed procedure. Older patients presenting for this surgery may have previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting with harvesting of one or both internal mammary arteries. This may compromise the blood supply to the breast. Limiting medial dissection during breast reduction surgery in these women is prudent to prevent breast necrosis.

Abstract

Breast reduction surgery is a frequently performed procedure. Older patients presenting for this surgery may have previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting with harvesting of one or both internal mammary arteries. This may compromise the blood supply to the breast. Limiting medial dissection during breast reduction surgery in these women is prudent to prevent breast necrosis. A case illustrating this is described.
