Endoscopically harvested latissimus dorsi: a scarless technique in immediate partial breast reconstruction

Endoscopically harvested latissimus dorsi: a scarless technique in immediate partial breast... The use of the latissimus dorsi muscle flap obtained endoscopically is a highly effective technique in the reconstruction of partial breast defects immediately after cancer surgery. It is particularly useful when the tumor is located in the upper or outer quadrants. The endoscopic approach offers less associated scarring than the classical technique and minimal anatomical variability compared with the use of thoracodorsal artery perforator flaps.

Abstract

The use of the latissimus dorsi muscle flap obtained endoscopically is a highly effective technique in the reconstruction of partial breast defects immediately after cancer surgery. It is particularly useful when the tumor is located in the upper or outer quadrants. The endoscopic approach offers less associated scarring than the classical technique and minimal anatomical variability compared with the use of thoracodorsal artery perforator flaps. Level of evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.
