abstract

  • These results suggest that there is no difference in the incidence of locoregional recurrence in breast cancer patients who undergo immediate, tissue expander/implant reconstruction compared with those patients who do not have reconstruction. Prosthetic breast reconstruction does not appear to hinder detection of locoregional cancer recurrence. In the majority of patients, management of locoregional recurrence does not necessitate removal of a permanent prosthesis.
