Always do modified surgeons advise a young patient to wait for another radical mastectomy; breast-conserving treatment is pregnancy for 5 years as recurrence will then be less contraindicated generic 10mg alavert with mastercard.

LIMITATIONS OF THIS REVIEW As with other types of research, the limitations of this systematic review are important to recognize. These can be divided into 2 groups, those relating to generalizability of the results and those relating to methodology within the scope of this review. The generalizability of the results are limited by the scope of the Key Questions and inclusion criteria and by the generalizability of the studies included. Most studies included narrowly defined populations of patients who met strict criteria for case definition, had few comorbidities, and used few or no concomitant medications. Minorities, older patients, and the most seriously ill patients were underrepresented. Methodological limitations of the review within the defined scope included the exclusion of studies published in languages other than English and lack of a specific search for unpublished studies. OVERALL SUMMARY The evidence summarizing our responses to the Key Questions is shown in Table 36. In addition to the limitations discussed above, the evidence is remarkable for its lack of real-world effectiveness outcomes important to patients, those relating to social success and economic independence. Inclusion of a large body of non-trial evidence did not improve the ability to answer questions in relation to these important effectiveness outcomes, as very few studies addressed such outcomes and most were limited by their design or implementation.
