abstract

  • It appears that the concurrent use of the latissimus dorsi flap can facilitate implant-based reconstruction in patients undergoing salvage mastectomy after failed lumpectomy and irradiation. Major complications resulting in reconstructive failure were few. In the majority of patients, combined latissimus dorsi/implant reconstruction resulted in very good to excellent aesthetic results and an acceptable rate of capsular contracture.
