|Abstract:||© Springer-Verlag Italia 2013. Advanced age (in itself) is not a contraindication to breast reconstruction, and breast reconstruction can be successfully performed on well-selected patients. The safety of reconstruction together with improvements in life expectancy increases the incentive to allow older women with breast carcinoma to be reconstructed without major barriers related to age, functional status, and social support. Future cancer research should be conducted in the elderly to provide more confidence in cancer treatment and to decrease undertreatment in elderly patients.|
