Description

The data is the patients who underwent chest wall perforator flaps for partial breast reconstruction after breast conservation surgery at Tata Medical Center between January 2017 and November 2019. There were total of forty patients. Data on clinicopathological characteristics, surgical details, adjuvant treatment and follow-up were retrieved from the institutional hospital management system and a prospectively maintained REDCap database. An acquired - informal questionnaire was developed and used to assess patient satisfaction at least six months after completion of radiotherapy, using a 4 point Likert’s scale. The questionnaire was administered either telephonically or during a routine follow up visit.
