Research and Clinical Trials for Breast Reconstruction

Ongoing research on breast reconstruction includes a number of studies on surgical procedures. These studies investigate various techniques, materials, anti-infection drugs, timing of surgery, risk factors and complications, and many other aspects. 
Among the clinical trials on breast reconstruction are studies including::
  • Regenerative tissue for reconstruction
  • Delayed-immediate techniques
  • Delayed reconstruction in breast cancer
  • Stereotactic image-guided surgery
  • Outcomes of perforator flap reconstruction
  • Expander devices that shape the breast prior to placing implants
  • Imaging technology
  • Surgical site infections
  • Scar formation
  • Emotional problems
  • Physical activity and sexual function following surgery
  • Use of botox in implant procedures
  • Antibiotic treatments following surgery
  • Comparing the results of implants and natural tissue reconstruction
  • Post-operative pain management
Research on breast reconstruction has led to more women enjoying good results and shows the promise of continually improving techniques, devices and outcomes.
