Direct-to-implant breast reconstruction has gained popularity in recent years. Pooja Yesantharao @pyrao1 and her coauthors at Stanford University investigated nationwide direct-to-implant trends. Overall, utilization of direct-to-implant breast reconstruction has significantly increased over the past decade, in light of expanding clinical indications and policy reform measures (i.e. Medicaid expansion) improving insurance coverage amongst traditionally marginalized populations. Additionally, this procedure is less expensive than staged/delayed reconstruction without increasing hospitalization. However, certain disparities continue to exist.
