Could you help with this research?

Shelley Potter is leading an NIHR Research for Patient Benefit funded study exploring the long-term clinical and cost-effectiveness of breast reconstruction. This study is a follow on from the 2008/9 National Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction Audit and aims to compare the outcomes of different types of breast reconstruction (e.g. implant and tissue based) at 10 years to help patients make more informed decisions about reconstructive surgery.  This work will give much needed information on rates of further surgery and patient reported outcomes for different surgical procedures. We are also planning to follow up patients who initially elect to have a simple mastectomy to explore rates, timing and outcome of delayed reconstruction.  We would like to contact all women who had mastectomy +/- reconstruction between 01/01/2008 and 31/3/2009 to ask them to complete patient reported outcome questionnaires.  They will also have the option to opt out if they don’t want their data used.
