Abstract: front page image
(EN)A new breast replica cast assembly (NBRC) for use in autologous breast reconstruction on a patient who has undergone surgery to remove one breast by mastectomy, said assembly comprising:- (i) a mould body providing a cavity substantially corresponding to the size, shape, projection and volume of the breast to be reconstructed; (ii) an overlaying lid to the mould body wherein the lid to the mould provides a surface substantially corresponding to the surface of the patient's mastectomized breast area, the cavity formed by the mould body and the lid to the mould prescribing the volume, projection, shape and symmetry of the breast to be reconstructed; characterised in that the mould body and the lid are both formed from a substantially transparent or translucent material such that the contents of the new breast replica cast assembly are visible from outside the mould. The invention also includes methods of surgery using such a NBRC to reconstruct a patient's breast.
(FR)L'invention concerne un nouvel ensemble moulé de réplique mammaire (NBRC) s'utilisant en reconstruction autologue du sein sur une patiente ayant subi une mastectomie. Ledit ensemble comprend : (i) un corps de moulage formant une cavité correspondant sensiblement au sein à reconstruire en termes de taille, de forme, de projection et de volume; (ii) une coiffe de corps de moulage constituant une surface correspondant sensiblement à la région du sein mastectomisé, la cavité formée par le corps de moulage et sa coiffe définissant le volume, la projection, la forme et la symétrie du sein à reconstruire, ledit ensemble étant caractérisé en ce que le corps de moulage et sa coiffe sont tous deux faits d'un matériau sensiblement transparent ou translucide de sorte que le contenu du nouvel ensemble moulé de réplique mammaire est visible depuis l'extérieur du moule. L'invention concerne également des procédés chirurgicaux de reconstruction du sein chez une patiente avec NBRC.
