New Minimally Invasive Breast Reconstructive Procedure for Breast Cancer Patients - Actively Recruiting Participants for Clinical Study
Date:10/16/2007

MIAMI, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Roger K. Khouri, M.D. a noted Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, is presently leading a team of surgeons in a clinical trial performing a minimally invasive breast reconstruction technique utilizing the Brava external expansion system and liposuctioned micro-fat grafts primarily on women who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy, with or without radiation therapy.

Typically, breast reconstruction procedures involve major, "open" surgery that requires extensive recovery time. With this new minimally-invasive outpatient breast reconstruction technique, the chest wall is first expanded by using the Brava System and is followed by the re-injection of small micro- grafts that are harvested, through a liposuction procedure, from the patients own body (autologous grafts). These micro-fat grafts are most often harvested from the patient's thighs, buttocks and stomach. A key element to the success of this procedure, an average 90% graft survival rate, is the preparation of the recipient breast site with the expansion device (Brava) enabling greater volumes of fat to be transferred, and its post operative use to stabilize the graft ensuring its survival. Slowly, after undergoing a few procedures, the breasts are reconstructed. Following each treatment, patients are ambulatory and recovery time is minimal.

The study is actively recruiting the following types of participants: post lumpectomy patients, post mastectomy patients or those post breast biopsy, that were left with a filling defect, who do not have breast implants. Further information about the clinical trial and enrollment criteria may be found at http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00466765?order=1
