Abstract

Few studies have examined the prevalence of persistent pain after breast reconstruction with an implant after tissue expansion in comparison to mastectomy without breast reconstruction. Our primary objective was to evaluate the prevalence of persistent pain after breast reconstruction with a subpectoral implant after tissue expansion in a population-based study. Secondary objectives were to evaluate sensory disturbances, lymphoedema and functional impairment.
