Table 3 Number of patients with complications, by ischemia assessment method

From: Potential of the SPY intraoperative perfusion assessment system to reduce ischemic complications in immediate postmastectomy breast reconstruction

Assessment method Patients with complications
SPY  
  Ischemia present, N (%) 5 (71.4)*
  No ischemia detected, N (%) 2 (28.6)**
Clinical assessment  
  Ischemia present, N (%) 0 (0.0)
  No ischemia detected, N (%) 7 (100)
Total patients with complications, N (%) 7 (100)
  1. Note: percent of patients with complications by assessment method and presence of ischemia/total number of patients with complications (N = 7).
  2. * Complications in these patients included flap necrosis (n = 4) and suture failure (n = 1).
  3. ** Complications in these patients included hematoma (n = 1) and cellulitis and seroma (n = 1).
