Abstract

Gross morphologic alterations, as determined by width and thickness, were observed during the first postoperative year. Substantial shrinkage at the mid-body occurred progressively for 1 year in 16.1% of the cases. No association was found between morphologic changes and short-term clinical outcomes.
