RESENDE, José Humberto Cardoso; FEITOSA, Rommel Apolinário y CRUZ, Ricardo Souza. Transposition flap for correction of ectopic breast in Poland's syndrome using a pre-molded silicone prosthesis. Rev. Bras. Cir. Plást. (Impr.) [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.3, pp. 533-537. ISSN 1983-5175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1983-51752011000300028.
The authors report a variation of Poland's syndrome with ectopic right breast. Three surgeries were performed at different times: transposition flap to place the mammary gland in an anatomic position; reduction of the contralateral left breast; and implantation of a pre-molded silicone prosthesis to correct the malformation caused by the absence of the major and minor pectoral muscles. The surgeries were performed at six-month intervals, and the final outcome was new and acceptable positioning of the breasts.
