Abstract

PURPOSE:

The objective of the present study was to analyze current indications and results of different methods for breast anomaly correction of Poland's syndrome.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Eight patients with this deformity were operated between 1997 and 2008: seven females and one male. The mean age was 22. According to Foucras et al. classification, four patients revealed Poland's syndrome grade II, three patients grade I and two patients grade III. Three patients received silicone implants (two with Poland's syndrome grade II, one with grade III). Autologous fat injection was used for a male adolescent who was very embarrassed by his deformity. Controlateral lipo-aspiration was carried out in three cases with moderate Poland's syndrome breast asymmetry. For one patient, correction was achieved by controlateral breast resection.

RESULTS:

No intraoperative or postoperative complications occurred for the eight patients. Aesthetic results were overall satisfactory.

CONCLUSION:

The simplest and the fastest breast deformity correction technique in Poland's syndrome patients, the one with the least complications and cosmetic sequella and the most practiced by the surgeon, remains the best method for breast anomaly correction of Poland's syndrome.
