Porcine acellular dermis-based breast reconstruction: complications and outcomes following adjuvant radiotherapy

Porcine acellular dermis-based breast reconstruction: complications and outcomes following... Our evidence suggests that there is no difference in complication rates in pre- and post-radiation individuals; this would suggest that implant-based reconstruction using Strattice TM should not be an absolute contraindication in pre- or post-radiotherapy patients. However, when planning these procedures, it is paramount that the increased risks are emphasised to patients in order to better manage patient expectation in cases where complications arise. Level of Evidence: Level III, risk / prognostic study. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
