NCT ID: NCT02563977 Completed - Clinical trials for Breast Reconstruction

Changes To The Abdominal Wall After DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction

Start date: July 2015
Study type: Observational

The purpose of this study was to perform an evaluation of the structural changes in the abdominal wall after harvesting a DIEP flap in breast reconstruction. 14 women undergoing secondary, unilateral breast reconstruction were recruited to the study and underwent a 2 year postoperative CT scan of the abdomen (without contrast). Structural changes were assessed by comparing the abdominal CT scans performed prior to surgery with the 2 year postoperative CT scans.
