Mastectomy and Immediate Expander/Implant Reconstruction with Lipofilling: Postmastectomy Radiation Treatment
A 48-year-old premenopausal woman with positive family history (mother and aunt with breast cancer) was diagnosed with a locally advanced breast cancer of the left breast (Fig. 59.1a, b). Mammography and breast sonography 1 year ago showed and unsuspicious result. Histology found a triple-negative (Ki 67: 75 %) G3 invasive ductal carcinoma. The axillary lymph node status was positive (confirmed through core needle biopsy); further examinations found no metastatic disease.
