Abstract

Breast cancer is the most common tumor afflicting women. Breast loss is a dramatic experience triggering profound trauma. Contemporary operating techniques provide women with the opportunity for effective rehabilitation and a return to regular functioning in society. This paper presents the current state of the art concerning breast reconstruction with autologous tissue with application of the pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap and the latissimus dorsi myocutaneous island flap.

Streszczenie

Rak sutka jest najczęstszym nowotworem u kobiet. Utrata piersi jest tragicznym wydarzeniem wywołującym głęboki uraz psychiczny. Współczesne techniki operacyjne rekonstrukcji piersi stwarzają kobietom szansę na skuteczną rehabilitację i powrót do normalnego funkcjonowania psychospołecznego. W pracy przedstawiono aktualny stan wiedzy dotyczący rekonstrukcji piersi tkankami własnymi z zastosowaniem uszypułowanego płata skórno−mięśniowego z mięśnia prostego brzucha (TRAM) oraz płata skórno−mięśniowego z mięśnia najszerszego grzbietu (LD).

Key words
