      Prominent publications by Scott L Spear

      A retrospective review was performed of one surgeon's experience with 40 consecutive patients who had undergone two-stage saline-filled implant breast reconstruction and radiation during the period from 1990 through 1997. A randomly selected group of 40 other two-stage saline-filled implant breast reconstructions from the same surgeon and time period served as controls. This review was undertaken because of the absence of specific information on the outcome of staged saline implant ...

      BACKGROUND: Anecdotal reports and one case-control study suggested an association, without evidence of causation, between breast implants and anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This review summarizes the published evidence, including case reports and epidemiologic studies.

      METHODS: A PubMed search limited to English language articles was conducted using the search terms "breast implant" and "lymphoma," "primary ...

      BACKGROUND: Acellular dermal matrix has been increasingly accepted in prosthetic breast reconstruction. Observed benefits include improved control and support of implant position, better implant coverage, and the suggestion of a decreased capsular contracture rate. Based on this positive experience, it is not surprising that acellular dermal matrix would be applied to other challenging implant-related problems. This study investigates the use of acellular dermal matrix for correction or ...

      In the absence of any published information on the indications, frequency, and outcomes of revision augmentation/mastopexy, an 8-year retrospective review was undertaken of all patients undergoing revision of a previous augmentation/mastopexy in the senior author's practice. The data collected included original implant type, location and mastopexy type, indication for revision, interval from original surgery, new implant type, location, and associated corrective surgical procedures. A ...

      BACKGROUND: The detrimental effects of obesity on pedicled and free transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap reconstructions, including flap loss, hematoma, and donor-site hernia, are well documented. This study examined the effect of obesity on complications in patients undergoing pedicled TRAM flap breast reconstruction.

      METHODS: A retrospective review of 224 pedicled TRAM flaps in 200 patients over a 10-year period was carried out. Patients were divided into three groups: ...

      Among the potential complications associated with the use of breast implants are the risks of periprosthetic infection and device extrusion. There is little published information about the effective management of these situations. Conservative recommendations include antibiotic therapy and removal of the implant until resolution of the infection or until the wound has healed. A retrospective review identified patients with periprosthetic infection or threatened or actual device exposure ...

      As the inclusion criteria for breast conservation therapy have continued to evolve to include lower quadrant tumors, very large breasts, and central tumors, the potential for significant disfigurement after breast conservation therapy has also increased. This has led some centers to develop coordinated oncology-plastic surgery approaches to ensure both adequate cancer resection and aesthetic appearance to the breasts. The authors applied this principle to a specific group of breast ...

      Since the original descriptions by Gonzales-Ulloa in 1960 and Regnault in 1966, breast augmentation in combination with mastopexy has remained a difficult, and often polarizing, topic in plastic surgery, not only because of its results but also because of its litany of potential complications. Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the discussion of one-stage augmentation combined with mastopexy throughout the literature. However, a critical analysis of the aesthetic ...

      A 7-year experience with 171 consecutive immediate breast reconstructions by one surgeon using a textured integrated-valve tissue expander was reviewed. All patients were reconstructed in multiple stages using a temporary biodimensional tissue expander followed months later by a long term implant. There was one (0.6 percent) spontaneous expander deflation that was replaced. Two (1.2 percent) expanders were removed for infection, and one was removed electively. Fourteen patients (8 ...

      BACKGROUND: Allergan's Natrelle round silicone-filled breast implants were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006 based on interim results from the Core Study; final 10-year study results are now available.

      METHODS: Seven hundred fifteen subjects were implanted with smooth and Biocell textured Natrelle round silicone implants and attended clinic visits at 0 to 4 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, and annually through 10 years. Approximately one-third of subjects underwent ...

      BACKGROUND: Silicone gel-filled breast implants were developed in 1962 but did not fall under the auspices of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration until 1976 and were not classified as class III devices until 1988. This set the stage for a series of Food and Drug Administration advisory panel meetings and a moratorium on the sale of these implants from 1992 until 2006, when sufficient clinical data were presented to demonstrate their safety.

      METHODS: This study was conducted under the ...

      To determine the hypermethylation status of the promoter regions of tumour suppressor genes in breast tissues from healthy women and identify the determinants of these epigenetic changes. Questionnaires and breast tissues were collected from healthy women without a history of cancer and undergoing reduction mammoplasty (N= 141). Methylation for p16(INK4), BRCA1, ERalpha and RAR-beta promoter regions from breast tissues were determined by methylation specific PCR. Associations were ...

      The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of postreconstruction radiation therapy on patients undergoing pedicled TRAM flap breast reconstruction. Post-TRAM radiation patients were compared with patients who received pre-TRAM radiation and a control TRAM-only group who received no radiation. Overall aesthetic appearance, evidence of symmetry, flap contracture, and hyperpigmentation were assessed by blinded reviewers. A total of 171 pedicled TRAM reconstructions were performed ...

      BACKGROUND: The detrimental effects of smoking on pedicled and free flap reconstruction are well documented. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of smoking on flap, donor-site, and other individual and multiple complications in pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap breast reconstruction.

      METHODS: A retrospective review was carried out of 224 pedicled TRAM flaps in 200 patients over a 10-year period. Three subgroups of patients were identified: ...

      BACKGROUND: The authors compared the outcomes of two-stage, acellular dermal matrix (AlloDerm)-assisted prosthetic breast reconstruction including different timings of radiotherapy.

      METHODS: A review of two-stage, AlloDerm-assisted, prosthetic breast reconstructions from 2004 to 2010 was performed. All data were recorded prospectively and the study population was stratified by the timing of radiotherapy. Complications were analyzed following first- and second-stage reconstruction. The ...
