    In this video, Koenraad Van Landuyt, MD, PhD performs a lumbar artery perforator flap breast reconstruction on a 49-year-old patient. The patient has previously undergone a lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy. After a recurrence of cancer, a mastectomy and DIEP flap was performed. Now, after testing positive for the BRCA gene, the patient will undergo a preventive subcutaneous mastectomy as well as an ovariectomy followed by immediate breast reconstruction.
