Title:
Three-dimensional prediction of free-flap volume in autologous breast reconstruction by CT angiography imaging. 
Abstract:
The diagnostic use of computer tomography angiography (CTA) to identify perforating blood vessels for abdominal free-flap breast reconstruction was extended to estimate the three-dimensional (3D) preoperative flap volume and to compare it with the real intraoperative flap weights in order to (1) evaluate the accuracy of CTA-based 3D flap volume prediction, and (2) to analyze abdominal tissue estimation for required breast volume reconstruction.Preoperative CTA was performed in 54 patients underg...    »
