Biomechanical changes in the low back following reduction mammaplasty surgery.


OBJECTIVE: To give evidence of the mechanical consequences of reduction mammaplasty (RM) on the low back. DESIGN: A repeated-measures analysis was implemented to test the effect of RM on the external loads and angular velocity of the back during both static and dynamic lifting tasks. BACKGROUND: Patient follow-up surveys have documented a decrease in the… (More)
