2 After viewing this presentation, you will be able to: Objectives 1 Make incisions for a post-mastectomy/TUG flap reconstruction revision Remove necrotic tissue from previous TUG flap procedure, leaving anastomosed vessels behind Harvest and process fat from upper abdominal region Insert fat graft into the breast Suture close incisions with continuous running stitch

3 Failed TUG Flap Reconstruction Healthy fat from upper abdomen will be used to replace necrotic fat graft. Incisions: 1.Lateral breast 2.Upper abdomen 3.Medial breast Orientation and Background 2 Patient previously had mastectomy with TUG Flap Breast Reconstruction (Transverse Upper Gracilis Flap). Vasculature taken as part of the TUG flap graft was anastomosed to axillary vasculature, but graft tissue died. Incision 1 Incision 2 Incision 3

4 Incision 1: Remove Necrotic Tissue Step One 3 Dissect and remove necrotic tissue from previous reconstruction. Do not remove vasculature anastomosed in previous reconstruction Leave anastomosed vessels behind

5 Incision 2: Harvest Abdominal Fat Step Two 4 Harvest fat using a liposuction cannula. Add Lactated Ringer’s to harvested fat and transfer to large syringes. Remove settled blood (blood cells in harvested fat stops angiogenesis)

6 Incision 3: Inject Harvested Fat Step Three 5 Inject harvested fat into medial side of breast to replace necrotic tissue

7 Suture Close Incisions Step Four 6 Close all incisions with continuous running stitches
