Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen/ Summary of the thesis

Breast reconstruction using the patient’s own tissue is common, but the surgical procedures can be complex.

This project evaluated new methods to reduce the risks for complications and improve overall outcome after such surgery.

In patients with limited surplus tissue on the lower abdomen, larger breast volume and improved aesthetic outcome was achieved when an abdominal free tissue transplant was combined with a local flap from the axillary area. Registration of heat radiation from the skin surface proved a valuable and safe technique to ensure proper flap design before tissue transplantation and to monitor flap blood perfusion during and after surgery, enabling swift correction of compromised flap perfusion.

On assessment of intraoperative fluid management, a restricted fluid infusion combined with vasoactive drugs to ensure adequate blood pressure was correlated with less postoperative complications and shorter hospital stay as compared to a more liberal fluid management.
