NEW! Reducing Infectious Complications in Expander / ADM Reconstruction with No-Touch Technique Sat, Sep 29 8:00-9:00 a.m.

A discussion of best practices in both implant-based breast reconstruction and non-touch technique as applied to cosmetic breast surgery, reconstructive breast surgery and prosthetic urology along with the evidence that a no-touch protocol would reduce infection rates in this common reconstructive procedure.

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify predisposing factors to infection in the breast cancer patient.
  2. List steps that will reduce the risk of bacterial contamination during breast reconstruction.
