A new method of bipedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap splitting to reconstruct the contralateral breast 1 year after the first breast reconstruction is presented. This technique can be useful in cases of large salvage mastectomy for asynchronous breast cancers allowing a bilateral thoracic closure.

Abstract

A new method of bipedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap splitting to reconstruct the contralateral breast 1 year after the first breast reconstruction is presented. This technique can be useful in cases of large salvage mastectomy for asynchronous breast cancers allowing a bilateral thoracic closure.
