Recommendations

The Work Group suggests that clinicians may treat patients undergoing mastectomy and autologous breast reconstruction with either surgical technique (pedicled TRAM flap or DIEP flap, contingent on the use of mesh for pedicled TRAM procedures) because the risk of donor-site complications is comparable among procedures. Patient preference should have a substantial influencing role. (C)
