Abstract

The article entitled "Application of immediate breast reconstruction with silicon prosthetic implantation following bilateral mammary gland excision in treatment of young patients with early breast cancer" published in Journal of Thoracic Disease, examined the oncologic and cosmetic outcomes of the aforementioned procedures. We aimed to describe the unique circumstances of young breast cancer patients with early stage disease and highlight the multitude of surgical treatment and reconstructive options available to these patients.
