The aim of the study is to determine if reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy
increases the risk of reporting persistent pain 2-3 years after surgery.
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
The risk of developing persistent if reconstructed
The risk of developing persistent if reconstructed compared to patients mastectomized without reconstruction expressed as an odds ratio.
