CUFF Study: Characterization of Upper Limb Function following Mastectomy and Reconstruction for Breast Cancer

This is an observational study that will provide information describing the relationships between type of breast reconstruction and shoulder/upper extremity function and perceived health-related quality of life (HRQOL) for breast cancer survivors. This study will obtain measurements of arm strength and mobility and use self-report questionnaires to evaluate patient quality of life and satisfaction with treatment. Outcomes across three patient groups will be compared, including patients who undergo mastectomy with: 1) no reconstruction; 2) reconstruction with implants; and 3) reconstruction with autologous flaps.
