In this poster, for the first time, we present a case of breast reconstruction with the LD muscolo-cutaneous flap using the J-Plasma surgical energy device for flap dissection, aiming to evaluate general and surgical outcomes related with the employment of this new surgical option, especially regarding the operative time and the serous fluid accumulation at donor site. We performed simultaneously a retrospective review of our casuistry including all the LD musculocutaneous flap performed in our institute for breast reconstruction during the past year, collecting data from the outpatient reports and the operative\anaesthesiologic charts.

  • Apyx Medical wants to present you with current scientific discourse. Specific usage outside of the general cleared indication may not be safe or effective. Renuvion®/J- Plasma has received a general clearance and has not been determined to be safe or effective for use in any specific indication or anatomical location including skin tightening indication referenced in this article.
  • Apyx Medical manufactures and owns the Renuvion/J-Plasma technology discussed in this article.

Risk associated with the use of the Renuvion technology may include unintended burns (deep or superficial), pneumothorax, scars, temporary or permanent nerve injury, pain, discomfort, gas buildup resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain, infection, hematoma, seroma; asymmetry and/or unacceptable cosmetic result. There may be additional risks associated with the use of other devices along with Renuvion and there may be an increased risk for patients who have undergone prior surgical or aesthetic procedures in the treatment area. As with any procedure, individual results may vary. As with all energy devices there are inherent risks associated with its use, refer to the IFU for further information.

The Renuvion/J-Plasma Precise Open® Handpiece is intended to be used with compatible J-Plasma electrosurgical generators for the delivery of radiofrequency energy and/or helium plasma for cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue during open surgical procedures. The Renuvion/J-Plasma Precise & Precise Open Handpieces are compatible with electrosurgical Generators BVX-200H, and BVX-200P. Refer to the Instructions for Use for the currently approved or cleared indications.
