Table 4 Presence of ischemia in Post-SPY sample, by method of assessment

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

  Ischemia present Management* P-value**
Yes No Skin resection Decrease implant volume
SPY, N (%) 20 (51.3) 19 (48.7) 18 (90) 9 (45) <0.0001
Clinical judgment, N (%) 1 (2.6) 38 (97.4) 1 (100) 1 (100)  
  1. * Management of ischemia in patients with “yes” answer, by method of assessment.
  2. ** Fisher’s exact test, presence of ischemia: SPY vs. clinical judgment.
  3. Management approach by percent of patients with ischemia (N = 20 SPY, N = 1 clinical judgment).
