BACKGROUND: : The use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) has become a routine practice in implant-based breast reconstruction. Bilateral mastectomy is becoming more popular in cases of unilateral breast cancer. ADM has been associated with an increased incidence of complications.
METHODS: : We identified cases of bilateral implant-based breast reconstruction over a 5-year period. Data collection included medical comorbities, details of operative management, and details of postoperative cancer treatment.
RESULTS: : On univariate analysis, the use of ADM (31% vs. 7%, P = 0.018), smoking (37% vs. 13%, P = 0.045), and open wound (55% vs. 13%, P = 0.006) were significantly associated with increased risk of infection. Multivariate analysis revealed open wound as the strongest predictor of infection.
CONCLUSIONS: : The use of ADM is associated with an increased risk of infection in bilateral implant-based breast reconstruction. However, it does not appear to be an independent risk factor by itself.
