The BREASTrial:Breast Reconstruction Evaluation Using Acellular Dermal Matrix as a Sling Trial
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||breast cancer, reconstructive surgery|
|Treatment||implantation of dermal matrix substitute|
|Sponsor||University of Utah|
|Start date||October 2008|
|End date||May 2011|
|Trial size||196 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00872859, 26658|
1. Alloderm and Dermamatrix have comparable complication rates when used for staged breast reconstruction
1. The complication rates following staged breast reconstruction using Alloderm or Dermamatrix are higher if the patient requires radiation compared to those who do not require radiation.
2. Dermal matrix incorporation is not altered in patients requiring radiation compared to those who do not require radiation.
3. Dermal matrix incorporation is no different when comparing Alloderm and Dermamatrix
1. Evaluate the complication rates in women undergoing staged breast reconstruction with acellular dermal matrix with or without radiation
2. Compare the complication rates between the two types of acellular dermal matrix
3. Evaluate the histologic characteristics of the dermal matrix exposed to radiation compared to that not exposed to radiation.
4. Compare the rates of incorporation of the dermal substance into surrounding tissues of those patients undergoing radiation to those not undergoing radiation
|Endpoint classification||safety/efficacy study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||single blind (investigator)|
