Using propensity score analysis to compare major complications between DIEP and free muscle-sparing TRAM flap breast reconstructions.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous studies comparing muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) versus deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) free flaps have not considered procedure selection bias. Propensity score analysis provides a statistical approach to consider preoperative factors in flap selection, and was used to compare major… (More)
