Keywords: breast reconstruction, perforator vessels, thermography


Results of definition the perforator vessels of abdominal wall with a termography were analysed. The comparative analysis with data of ultrasonography and a computer tomography with contrast was carried out. Inclusion in structure of a flap the perforator vessels revealed by means of a termography has allowed to provide adequate perfusion in a TRAM flap.
