Abstract [en]

Background: Abdominal-based free flap has increasingly become the gold standard for breast reconstruction, however long-term evidence of the aesthetic outcome and quality of life is lacking. The present study aims to gain an overview of patients with abdominal-based free flap breast reconstructions in a long-term perspective.

Methods: Seventy-five patients who received abdominal-based free flap breast reconstructions between 2000-2007 in Uppsala, Sweden were invited back for photographs, 3D imaging and questionnaires. A retrospective chart review was conducted. Patient satisfaction with appearance and quality of life were assessed using the Breast-Q questionnaire. A layman panel and a professional panel rated the aesthetic appearance of the reconstructed breast from photographs and 3D images.

Results: Fifty-five patients participated with a mean age of 52 +/- 8 years at the time of reconstruction and a mean follow-up time of 11.4 +/- 1.8 years completed the study. The majority of the patients had received unilateral (85%), delayed reconstructions (73%) with prior radiation (55%). There were 53 patients with DIEP flaps, one with free TRAM flap and one with SIEA flap. Breast-Q scores in the cohort were comparable to normative values of women without breast cancer (p < 0.001). There was a high level of agreement for the aesthetic results of the reconstructions between patient, professionals and layman panels (0.89 ICC, 95% CI: 0.83 - 0.93).

Conclusion: Abdominal-based free flap reconstructions were effective in achieving a lasting positive aesthetic result and a high quality of life in patients a decade after surgery.
