Breast reconstruction following nipple-sparing mastectomy

Breast reconstruction following nipple-sparing mastectomy: A systematic review of the literature with pooled analysis. Plastic and reconstructive surgery, Nov 2013, Vol. 132(5), p.1043-54.

Endara, M., et al.

Nipple-sparing mastectomy is a controversial option for breast cancer treatment due to locoregional recurrence and distant metastasis. In addition to these oncologic factors, technical factors such as ideal incision type or reconstructive options are also debatable. This systematic review examines current trends with nipple-sparing mastectomy, including selection criteria, locoregional and distant metastasis rates, incision choice, and reconstructive options.
