Abstract

The use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) in many plastic surgery procedures, including breast reconstruction, has increased dramatically in recent years. While expander/implant reconstruction can be performed successfully with standard techniques, the introduction of ADM has added a new tool with which to achieve lasting, predictable results. This article is a summary of existing literature on ADM for primary implant reconstruction, to provide a more thorough understanding of the benefits of ADM in single- and to two-stage breast reconstruction and to identify the areas where further investigation is needed.
