BREAST CANCER ~ new cases per year- In Lane county Nationally- ~70% breast conservation vs. 30% mastectomy Nationally-~20-30% will undergo reconstruction-
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION AND WOMEN’S HEALTH Congress guaranteed universal coverage for breast reconstruction after cancer surgery in 1998.
… So, why such a low rate of breast Reconstruction?
NATIONAL UTILIZATION OF IMMEDIATE AND EARLY DELAYED BREAST RECONSTRUCTION, (ALDERMAN PRS 2003) 10,404 mastectomy treatments for breast cancer On average, 15.4% breast reconstruction within 1 st 4 months Atlanta- highest 33.6% Hawaii- Lowest 7.6%
NATIONAL UTILIZATION OF IMMEDIATE AND EARLY DELAYED BREAST RECONSTRUCTION, (ALDERMAN PRS 2003) Race- W> H> A> B Socioeconomic status Geographic location Age- less than 45> 45-55> 55 Clinical factors- stage of disease, XRT, surgical oncologist, plastic surgeon
DARTMOUTH HITCHCOCK MEDICAL CENTER STUDY, (COLLINS, E; PRS 2003) Well integrated breast care program Average rate of immediate reconstruction 49% All females considering mastectomy offered consult with a plastic surgeon Is ~50% the “ideal” rate of breast reconstruction since all women are offered the option?
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION AND WOMEN’S HEALTH Concerns about masking recurrence overrated. Br Ca is mostly a systemic disease; local recurrence mostly superficial and not hidden by reconstruction. Delaying reconstruction is not supported
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION AND WOMEN’S HEALTH Well proven psychological benefits of breast reconstruction for recovering mastectomy patients -Defining the “right” rate of breast reconstruction has clear policy implications for women’s health
(AUGUST 18,2010) “Before Breast Is Removed, a Discussion on Options” “ Now a state law,… will require New York hospitals and doctors to discuss the options for breast reconstruction with their patients before performing cancer surgery, to give them information about insurance coverage and to refer them to another hospital, if necessary, for the reconstructive surgery”.
ADVANTAGES OF PREMASTECTOMY CONSULT WITH PLASTIC SURGEON Allows the surgeon to assess patient’s baseline anatomy Allows the patient to learn all her reconstructive options Allows the plastic surgeon to take part in the oncological surgery planning and hence help produce the best possible cosmetic outcome It makes immediate reconstruction with all its psychological and cosmetic benefits to become a reality
George Town Protocol for Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy
IN SUMMARY All women should be offered a consult with a plastic surgeon prior to breast cancer surgery Nipple / Skin sparing mastectomy is the ideal mastectomy technique Immediate reconstruction is the ideal reconstruction for most patients
