Priority 6 from the Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: What are the satisfaction rates associated with each type of breast reconstruction? (JLA PSP Priority 6)
|JLA question ID
|There is more research revealing that different methods of breast reconstruction can generate different levels of patient satisfaction, and these satisfaction levels can change over time. It would be very useful for prospective patients to have the data to understand what are the average levels of patient satisfaction associated with the more common types of breast reconstructions, and the dynamic changes that they can expect with their satisfaction in the long-term with each type of breast reconstruction.
Early and locally advanced breast cancer: diagnosis and management. Evidence-based recommendations on diagnosing and managing early and locally advanced breast cancer.
