Abstract: There are few high-quality studies evaluating use of meshes in implant-based immediate breast reconstruction (IBR). This thesis analyzed current evidence of matrices and compared outcomes from the use of biological or synthetic meshes and traditional muscle-covered implants. The comparisons examined short- and long-term complications and corrections, predictors of complications, and patient satisfaction and quality of life (QOL). Manuscript I describes a systematic review and meta-analysis speci... more
