Patient age and breast resection weight affect immediate postmastectomy breast reconstruction in ductal carcinoma in situ

Abstract : Purpose: Mastectomy is necessary for 40% of the ductal carcinoma in situ. If immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) is systematically proposed, 81% of the patients would choose immediate versus delayed breast reconstruction, but the actual IBR rate is only approximately 50% of them. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify objective characteristics that distinguish the patients who actually underwent IBR from those who did not. Methods: Several criteria of 248 patients who have undergone mastectomy for ductal carcinoma were analyzed. Factors studied were age, body mass index, diabetes, tobacco use, and weight of the specimen of resection. Results: The rate of IBR was 43%. An increase in age and weight of the resection specimen, irrespective of the body mass index, was associated with a lower rate of IBR. Thus, an increase of 100 g in the weight of the breast induces a significant reduction of the IBR (33%). Conclusions: In our series, older patients or patients with larger breasts (irrespective of the body mass index) were less likely to undergo IBR. In order to be in line with the patient's desire, the surgeons of our unit should broaden their indications of IBR. The lack of reconstruction of large breasts should certainly be compensated in part with the recent development of free tissue transfers in our unit.
