DIEP flap for breast reconstruction: Is abdominal fat thickness associated with post-operative complications?
|Published in||Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery. 2017, vol. 70, no. 8, p. 1068-1075|
|Abstract||Some surgeons consider a high body mass index (BMI) or important abdominal fat excess as contraindications for breast reconstruction with free deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap. This study aimed to identify factors associated with post-operative complications by using this type of flap, with an emphasis on BMI and abdominal subcutaneous fat thickness.|
