ABSTRACT

Summary: Adjuvant treatment planning can change after breast cancer resection and definitive pathological examination. Radiation therapy is often chosen as a supplementary treatment. Rectus abdominis-based muscle flaps are one of the main choices when breast reconstruction plans must be changed from implant-based to autologous methods. We herein report a case in which the patient's own tissue expander capsule was used to repair an abdominal wall defect after muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap reconstruction.

Figure 4: Abdominal wall integrity in abdominal magnetic resonance imaging performed 3 months after surgery.

Mentions: The outcome was uneventful. There was no evidence of hernia formation, bulging, seroma formation, or surgical site infection. The abdominal wall contour was maintained during follow-up, and the patient resumed social activities with no major complaints. Magnetic resonance imaging 3 months after surgery demonstrated abdominal wall integrity (Fig. 4). Six months after the procedure, there was still no sign of abdominal weakness.
