Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ethnic disparities exist in many areas of breast cancer treatment. When a mastectomy is necessary, the next discussion in the overall surgical management often focuses on breast reconstruction. This review will examine breast reconstruction trends within different ethnic groups and will briefly discuss underlying factors influencing current disparities. The literature available on differences in breast reconstruction loosely fits into two general categories: (1) the decision making process for reconstruction and (2) the receipt, timing and type of breast reconstruction. This review will seek to highlight several areas for possible intervention as well as areas where further research is needed.
