The consequences of patient identification errors due to specimen mislabeling can be deleterious. We describe two near-miss events involving mislabeled breast specimens from two patients who sought treatment at our institution. In both cases, microscopic review of the slides identified inconsistencies between the histologic findings and patient age, unveiling specimen identification errors. By correlating the clinical information with the microscopic findings, we identified mistakes that had occurred at the time of specimen accessioning at the original laboratories...

Significant advances have been made to the reconstructive tools available to plastic surgeons allowing for the re-exploration of subcutaneous breast reconstruction. The purpose of the current study is to examine the safety, efficacy, and aesthetic results of subcutaneous breast reconstruction by a single-surgeon. A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients undergoing subcutaneous implant-based breast reconstruction between April 2012 and September 2014. All implants were fully wrapped in Alloderm and placed in the subcutaneous (pre-pectoral) plane...

The aim of this study was to determine the associations between breast MRI findings using the Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) lexicon descriptors and breast cancer molecular subtypes. In this retrospective, IRB-approved, single institution study MRIs from 278 women with breast cancer were reviewed by one of six fellowship-trained breast imagers. Readers reported BI-RADS descriptors for breast masses (shape, margin, internal enhancement) and non-mass enhancement (distribution, internal enhancement)...

In 2010, the ACOSOG Z0011 trial showed equivalent survival and recurrence between sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) alone versus axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) for those with a tumor positive sentinel node (SN). We examined national trends in axillary surgery following neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for clinically node positive disease in the years prior to and after the Z0011 trial publication. 12,063 women with cT1-4N1M0 invasive breast cancer who underwent NAC from 2006 to 2013 and had 1-3 positive nodes on pathology were selected from the National Cancer Data Base...

We assessed the feasibility of supine intraoperative MRI (iMRI) during breast-conserving surgery (BCS), enrolling 15 patients in our phase I trial between 2012 and 2014. Patients received diagnostic prone MRI, BCS, pre-excisional supine iMRI, and postexcisional supine iMRI. Feasibility was assessed based on safety, sterility, duration, and image-quality. Twelve patients completed the study; mean duration = 114 minutes; all images were adequate; no complications, safety, or sterility issues were encountered...

The primary neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of the breast is defined as immunohistochemical expression of neuroendocrine markers (chromogranin and synoptophysin) in more than 50% of the neoplastic cells according to World Health Organization (WHO) classification of tumors in 2003 (Tumours of the Breast and Female Genital Organs, 2003, Lyon: IARC Press). It accounts for less than 5% of all cancers arising from the breast (Tumours of the Breast and Female Genital Organs, 2003, Lyon, France: IARC Press). However, based on the study conducted by Wang et al...

There is limited information on stage at breast cancer diagnosis in Canadian immigrant women. We compared stage at diagnosis between immigrant women and Canadian-born women, and determined whether ethnicity was an independent factor associated with stage. 41,213 women with invasive breast cancer from 2007 to 2012 were identified from the Ontario Cancer Registry. Women were classified as either immigrants or Canadian-born by linkage with the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada's Permanent Resident database...

The optimal duration and treatment strategies involving adjuvant endocrine therapy in early breast cancer remained largely undetermined. As data emerge on the various modalities of treatment in both pre- and postmenopausal groups, debates, and discussions continue. Most studies to date focused on the 5-year duration of treatment consisting of mainly tamoxifen. The Arimidex, Tamoxifen, Alone or in Combination (ATAC) study demonstrated that anastrozole is superior to tamoxifen and has become the mainstream treatment in postmenopausal women with early breast cancer, although the duration was arbitrarily set for 5 years, analogous to tamoxifen treatment...

To compare adjuvant conventional radiotherapy (C-RT) to hypofractionated schedule (HF-RT) in early breast cancer. Between May 2012 and September 2015, 120 patients were included in the analysis. All patients underwent conservative surgery and adjuvant RT. RT was delivered in C-RT (50 Gy; 2 Gy/fr) or HF-RT (42.5 Gy; 2.66 Gy/fr), followed by a tumor bed boost (10 Gy; 2 Gy/fr). RT-induced toxicity was recorded and compared between groups. Toxicity results were graded according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events guidelines...

To determine if the routine use of spot compression mammography is now obsolete in the assessment of screen detected masses, asymmetries and architectural distortion since the availability of digital breast tomosynthesis. We introduced breast tomosynthesis in the workup of screen detected abnormalities in our screening center in January 2015. During an initial learning period with tomosynthesis standard spot compression views were also performed. Three consultant breast radiologists retrospectively reviewed all screening mammograms recalled for assessment over the first 6-month period...

As shared decision-making increasingly influences screening mammography, understanding similarities and differences between patients and physician perspectives becomes crucially important. This study compares women's and physicians' experiences of mammography shared decision-making. Results reflect the critical gaps which exist between women's expectations and physicians' confidence in shared decision-making regarding screening mammography.

The goal of our IRB-approved study was to assess if a follow-up MRI every 6 months for 2 years is the most appropriate short-interval follow-up schedule. 203 breast MRI exams were performed from October 2009 to January 2014 as part of a BI-RADS 3 follow-up representing 2.6% of all breast MRIs (7,822) performed. We performed a retrospective longitudinal medical records review of compliance; malignancy rate of BI-RADS 3 exams; and average time and number of breast MRIs necessary prior to definitive disposition...
