Fifteen-year series of skin-sparing mastectomy for stage 0 to 2 breast cancer



Fifteen-year series of skin-sparing mastectomy for stage 0 to 2 breast cancer



American Journal of Surgery 190(6): 918-922



In 1989, skin-sparing mastectomy started at a number of breast centers in the United States because of an increasing demand for immediate reconstruction and a desire for better cosmetic outcomes. To ensure the safety of this new approach, we have reviewed the personal series of a single surgeon using a standardized skin-sparing technique during 1989 to 2004. Skin-sparing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction was performed on 225 patients, and standard mastectomy was performed on 1,022 patients. The age distribution was 8 years younger on average in the reconstructed group. The average follow-up for each group was 49 months. The local recurrence for each group was 1.7% and 1.5% (P > .80). The regional recurrence was 3.8% and 3.9% (P > .80). The average time to local recurrence was similar in each group (33.1 and 32.6 months, P > .80). A skin-sparing mastectomy does not change the local, regional, or systemic risk to breast cancer patients.
