Abstract [en]

There is a significant delay in the commencement of adjuvant treatment after mastectomy and free flap IBR in comparison to mastectomy alone patients due to reconstruction related surgical complications. The effects of this delay on survival have not been fully investigated yet and may be significant for at least some of the patients.
