Abstract

Background: The omentum has been employed to cover the defect produced after resection of gross breast cancer recurrence for nearly three decades. Methods: A series of 11 patients undergoing omental transposition flap for very wide resection of gross local recurrence (LR) of breast cancer is reported. The median age was 39 years, with a short interval (median = 21 months) from the treatment of the primary tumour to LR. Local recurrence was gross and predominantly inflammatory. Results: All except one patient had lymphovascular invasion in the recurrent tumour. The omental graft was 100% viable but one patient required re-application of further split-thickness skin graft. The mean hospital stay was 16 days. Two cases of seroma formation were encountered. New recurrence developed around the periphery of the flap in eight patientsafter a median duration of local control of only 2.5 months. Eight patients died with metastatic disease after a median period of 6 months,six patients with uncontrolled local disease. Five patients were freefrom LR in over half of their remaining period of life. Conclusion: Omentoplasty is a safe and reliable procedure but the length of palliation achieved is often far from satisfactory.
