Abstract

Methods: We performed partial mastectomy followed by immediate volume replacement using a modified thoracodorsal adipofascial cutaneous flap with a crescent-shaped dermis in ten patients.

Results: The modified oncoplastic technique was performed without any complications in all patients. Sufficient blood flow to the cutaneous flap with the crescent-shaped dermis was visualized in two patients during the operation after the injection of indocyanine green. The oncological and cosmetic results were excellent to good in these patients.

Conclusions: Oncoplastic surgery using a modified thoracodorsal adipofascial flap with a crescent-shaped dermis was successfully performed in patients with early cancer lesions in the outer quadrant, and the cosmetic results obtained were excellent.

Purpose: The treatment of early breast cancer using breast-conserving therapy commonly ensures local control and acceptable cosmetic results. We herein report a useful technique, including the use of a thoracodorsal adipofascial cutaneous flap for reconstructing defects in the outer quadrant area after partial mastectomy, which achieved excellent results.
