Brief smoking cessation intervention in relation to breast cancer surgery: a randomized controlled trial

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Smokers are more prone to develop postoperative complications. Smoking cessation intervention beginning 4-8 weeks prior to surgery improves the postoperative outcome. Cancer patients, however, often undergo surgery less than 4 weeks after diagnosis. The primary objective of this study was therefore to examine if a brief smoking cessation intervention shortly before breast cancer surgery would influence postoperative complications and smoking cessation.
