 A case-control study (part 5)

The weight of the tissue resected during the reduction mammo-plasty ranged from 100 g to 1750 g. The results revealed that the majority of patients (78%) had a benign scar site. However, two patients were found to have foci of ductal carcinoma in situ within the treated breast (3 mm and 4 mm) (Table 3). These patients were subject to rescreening and surveillance as a result of these findings. The follow-up of all patients ranged from four months to seven years following their reduction procedure, with a mean follow-up time of 32.89±26.87 months.

One patient was shown to have a 4 mm focus of ductal carcinoma in situ on pathology from her breast reduction specimen of the breast pre-vously treated for cancer (Table 3). In a follow-up mammogram performed nine months after her reduction mammoplasty, a density was seen and invasive ductal carcinoma was found on core biopsy. She thus underwent a modified radical mastectomy approximately three months later.
