Abstract

Genetic testing for BRCA mutations has led to greater needs for breast reconstruction and prophylactic gynecologic procedures. A retrospective review of all perforator flap breast reconstructions was performed over 5 years. A total of 316 flaps were performed on 232 patients. Nineteen patients had an intraabdominal procedure at the time of their breast reconstruction, including 8 unilateral and 11 bilateral reconstructions (22 flaps). The concomitant procedures incurred an additional mean operative time of 61 minutes. One arterial thrombosis occurred leading to a single flap failure (1/30, 3.3%). No significant differences were noted in complication rates between the combined group and those who did not have a simultaneous procedure (anastomotic complications 3.3% vs. 7.7%; failure rate 3.3% vs. 3.1%; abdominal wound 10.5% vs. 15%; fat necrosis 10% vs. 12.2%). The coordinated effort allowing simultaneous intraabdominal procedures and perforator flap breast reconstruction affords effective reconstruction for those requiring additional procedures without an increase in postoperative complication rates.
