“Sensing Breast” Reconstruction- Free microneurovascular muscle sparing TRAM-method
Doctor Helena Puonti created the Sensing Breast reconstruction as she thinks that the shape of the newly reconstructed breast is important for the patient’s quality of life, but even more important is the fact that the breast also feels.
The MS-TRAM flap (Muscle-Sparing Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous flap) is the best transplant for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. It is soft and can acquire the necessary shape. It is possible to reconstruct a round and, if necessary, large breast from it.
In this technique, the skin and fatty tissue from the lower abdominal area are transplanted to the site of the removed breast. Both the blood vessels and the nerves are grafted and connected to the blood vessels and nerves in the chest.
