  1. Fulltext. Inappropriate halsted mastectomy and patient volume in Italian hospitals.

    Article - En anglais


    To study whether Halsted mastectomy was used only when properly indicated, a prospective survey was undertaken on the process of care of 985 breast cancer patients seen consecutively at 62 general hospitals in Northern and Central Italy.

    Overall, 79% of Halsted mastectomies were performed inappropriately.

    The procedure was less likely to be performed on more educated patients and, other factors considered, on those seen at hospitals with larger volume.
