PURPOSE: To evaluate the incremental value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to conventional MR imaging (CMRI) to predict ipsilateral metastatic axillary lymphadenopathy in patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In an IRB approved retrospective single-institution study, newly diagnosed consecutive breast cancer patients with pathological verification of axillary lymph node (LN) status who had undergone breast MR imaging, including DWI as part of their standard MRI between August 1, 2010, and December 31, 2010, were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer patients with ptotic breasts pursuing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction can present challenges. A wise pattern (inverted-T) mastectomy incision (WPM) has been suggested as an alternative to the standard horizontal elliptical mastectomy (EM) to reduce redundant skin and correct ptosis. Herein, we sought to examine the differences in morbidity between the two techniques. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of women undergoing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction at our institution from June 2007 to January 2016...

Fibroadenomas are benign breast masses that often occur in adolescence and young adulthood. Primary management options include observation or surgical excision, but little is known about long-term outcomes after fibroadenoma excision in adolescents. In the present study, we reviewed the medical records of females aged 13-35 years who underwent fibroadenoma excision at our institution from 1986 through 2010. Patients were included if they had excision of at least 1 fibroadenoma (confirmed by histopathology) smaller than 5 cm in maximal diameter...

Recent randomized trials have shown that completion axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) is not required in all patients with a positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) who will receive radiation therapy. Although routine intraoperative pathologic assessment (IPA) becomes unnecessary and less indicated by breast surgeons in the United States and some European countries, it is still widely used all around the world. In this prospective study, the feasibility of intraoperative nodal palpation (INP) as opposed to IPA of the SLN has been analyzed...

BACKGROUND: As the age at first pregnancy continues to rise in the United States so does the incidence of breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy. Our objective was to evaluate temporal trends in the incidence of pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) and to measure neonatal outcomes associated with PABC. METHODS: We conducted a population-based cohort study using the 1999-2012 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-Nationwide Inpatient Sample (HCUP-NIS) from the United States...

BACKGROUND: Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast has epidemiological, molecular and clinical specificities, and should likely be considered a unique entity. As for genetic susceptibility, CDH1 germline mutations predispose exclusively to ILC. Data are however scarce regarding ILC in women with BRCA1/2 (Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer) and TP53 (Li-Fraumeni syndrome) germline mutations. METHODS: We included all breast cancers from female patients tested at our institute between 1992 and 2016 (n = 3469) for which pathology data were available...

Prospective randomized trials have demonstrated that postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) improves not only locoregional recurrence-free survival, but also overall survival for node-positive breast cancer patients. Subset analyses in previous trials have shown that improvement of overall survival with PMRT is not always demonstrated for patients with 1-3 positive nodes. Indications for PMRT are still marginal for patients with pathological invasion 5 cm in diameter and 1-3 positive nodes. The aim of this study was to clarify poor prognostic factors for breast cancer patients with pathological invasion size 5 cm and 1-3 positive nodes...

We compared the performance of near-infrared imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) with the radioisotope (ISO) method to detect sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in breast cancer, to analyze predictive factors for negative ICG identification. The study included 122 patients who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) using the combined ISO and ICG technique for primary breast cancer. We assessed the putative association between pathologic/clinical variables and ICG failure to detect SLNs. The ISO identification rate was 96...

Breast cancer, the major concern of the global health, is the fifth cause of death of women in Iran. In this longitudinal study, 3048 cases of breast cancer who visited and were treated at the Cancer Research Center in Shahid Beheshti University, were studied. During study, 518 patients died. The overall survival rate of 1, 5, 10, 15, and 20-year were 95%, 76%, 59%, 47% and 46%, respectively. A significant relation was observed between survival time and the variables such as age, size of tumor, number of lymph nodes, stage, grade, and lymphovascular invasion...

BACKGROUND: In Canada, breast MRI has traditionally been reserved for evaluation of disease extent in patients with known breast malignancy. More recently, MRI has been emerging as an instrument for breast screening. However, its utilization is limited by increased relative cost and increased reader time. In this study, we evaluate a rapid MRI protocol for breast cancer screening within a breast screening population. METHODS: A series of 100 MRI studies performed in a high-risk breast cancer population were selected, ensuring a mix of malignant and benign pathology and normal cases...

Preoperative or neo-adjuvant chemotherapy in the management of breast cancer is a treatment approach that has gained in popularity in recent years. However, it is unclear if the treatment paradigms often employed for patients treated with surgery first hold true for those treated with preoperative chemotherapy. The role of sentinel node biopsy and the data supporting its use is different for those with clinically negative and clinically positive nodes prior to chemotherapy. For clinically node-negative patients, sentinel node biopsy after neo-adjuvant chemotherapy may be appropriate...

Secretory breast carcinoma (SBC) is a rare form of breast cancer found in both children and adults, and is the most common breast cancer in the pediatric population. Although SBC usually carries a favorable prognosis, there have been reported cases of axillary and distant metastases. Surgery is the primary mode of treatment, however, there exists variability within the literature surrounding the management of SBC. We report a case of an 8-year-old girl who presented with a firm, mobile, palpable breast mass...
