Complication Rates Low With Mastectomy, Breast Reconstruction: Study
Date:9/2/2014

ding-related complications, regardless of type of breast reconstruction.

Among those who had autologous reconstruction, transfusion rates were 3.4 percent for single mastectomy and 7.9 percent for double mastectomy. Among those who had implant-based reconstruction, transfusion rates were 0.3 percent for single mastectomy and 0.8 percent for double mastectomy.

Double mastectomy led to longer hospital stays than single mastectomy -- one day vs. two days for implant-based reconstruction, and four days vs. five days for autologous reconstruction.

The double and single mastectomy patients had similar low rates of medical complications such as pneumonia and heart problems.

Research presented at medical meetings is considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
