The training activity on breast reconstruction carried on by Prof. Santanelli di Pompeo with DIEP flap, Latissimus Dorsi flap, lipofilling and others procedures, is part of a custom made scientific program to raise the number of surgeons able to perform procedures in the field of microvascular surgery and autologous tissue transfer. Special attention is reserved to the education of young surgeons, with the intention to create a school of surgery aiming at popularizing the DIEP flap procedure in Italy, and to increase the number of plastic surgeons specialized in such technique, in order to make it easily available to those women that have to cope with the difficult experience of beeing addressed to a radical mastectomy.
