In Germany a still completely under-represented process of Bonn. -Breast cancer is the most common cancer of women is still one of the most common cancers in Germany and 29 percent. Each year approximately 58,000 women will develop in Germany new breast cancer. Per 100,000 residents 130 women every year are affected for a city like Bonn such as this means more than 400 new cases each year. In spite of the increasingly improved methods for the early detection of breast cancer is not succeeded until today, to operate all tumors breast getting. About one-third of patients who will develop breast cancer, the breast must be removed due to various factors. The resulting external change and violation of physical integrity means a considerable psychological strain for many of the patients’ white Dr. Kay Hendrik Busch, head physician of the Department newly established since the beginning of the year for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery in the Maltese hospital Bonn/Rhein-Sieg.
In the It is therefore all the more important to take advantage of all opportunities of reconstruction of the breast sense an optimal support of affected patients. The breast reconstruction is so Bush, despite all the new evidence in Germany as a under-represented procedure and is performed only in half of all patients after mastectomy ever. The newly established clinic for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the Maltese hospital in Bonn devoted to since the beginning of the year focused on the reconstruction of the female breast after amputation. The clinic offers the full spectrum of breast surgery. The possibility of breast reconstruction by so-called Expander and silicone prostheses available here besides the breast reconstruction using your own tissue from the abdomen.
A reconstruction of the breast implants is the procedure gentlest for women according to Bush, because no additional tissues in other parts of the body must be removed. At the same time, the number of subsequent operations using this method is very low. A big shortcoming the training of so-called capsular Contracture was this surgical method in the past “, Bush explains. The capsular Contracture is a scarring, which occurs around the implant through a contraction and shrink the scar on permanent deformation can lead up to a painful hardening of the breast. Using most modern networks, obtained from biological material, such as for example the Veritas collagen matrix, we have succeeded to reduce the rate of scars in our home and to reduce the risk to our patients so that.”we’ve made very good experiences with the reconstruction of the breast from body tissue”, as Bush. Thanks to latest gentle surgical techniques tissue from the abdomen can be taken over largely unharmed, so a scarring in the abdominal cavity can be prevented. With this tissue the breast form of the opposite side can be modeled optimally.” The body’s tissues need no further corrections and also no long-term complications are to be expected. In the future can be significantly more patients who have either had concern before a major surgery using own tissue or fear of a scarring of the implants, reconstruct the breast by the application of the newly developed biological networks. A consultation at the clinic for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery in the Maltese hospital Bonn/Rhein-Sieg is possible at any time.
