Abstract

There has been a move towards increasingly refined techniques for autologous breast reconstruction, and given the substantial inter-individual variability of perforator anatomy, the need for reliable, accurate methods of vascular imaging has been sought. Computed tomographic angiography (CTA) can offer a range of applications in autologous breast reconstruction to aid surgical planning and improved outcomes. This article explores the utility of CTA in imaging perforators, pedicles and recipient vessels across a wide range of flap types and donor sites. CTA has a range of clinical applications in autologous breast reconstruction, and can aid operative planning and improve outcomes.
