(S032) Complications of Contralateral Prophylactic Mastectomy With Tissue Expander Reconstruction and Potential Impact on Adjuvant Oncologic Therapy
CPM with TER resulted in a complication in 25% of patients, half of which occurred within 6 months of surgery. However, adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy was delayed by acute complications in only 3% after CPM. Delayed complication rates were higher on the therapeutic side, possibly due to effects of radiotherapy. These data may better inform patients considering bilateral mastectomies with TER.
