Post-mastectomy reconstruction is performed using implant-based or autologous techniques. Many women refuse or are poor candidates for implant-based reconstruction. We previously described a single-stage autologous technique that was most applicable in obese women with significant ptosis that made use of the mastectomy skin flap and subcutaneous tissue to reconstruct a breast mound. Here, we extend this technique to smaller breasted women by incorporating a second stage of skin tailoring and fat grafting. This technique does not require donor site surgery nor extended operative and recovery times...

OBJECTIVE: In postmastectomy reconstruction, procedure choice is heavily influenced by the relative risks of the various options. This study sought to evaluate complications in a large, multicenter patient population. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Previous studies have reported widely varying complication rates, but have been limited by their single center designs and inadequate controlling for confounders in their analyses. METHODS: Eleven sites enrolled women undergoing first time, immediate, or delayed reconstruction following mastectomy for cancer treatment or prophylaxis...

OBJECTIVE: Reconstruction following mastectomy offers women an opportunity to mollify some of the emotional and aesthetic effects of this devastating disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The authors reviewed the files of 83 patients who underwent immediate postmastectomy reconstruction with tissue expander between January of 2003 and June of 2012 at our hospital. The patients were divided into two groups: Group A (study group) included 30 patients with previous quadrantectomy and radiotherapy who underwent salvage mastectomy after local recurrence; Group B (control group) included 53 patients submitted to primary radical mastectomy...

BACKGROUND: Certain studies suggest that using indocyanine green (ICG) could be comparable with using radioisotopes (RI) in detecting sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in breast cancer. A number of these studies were performed in Asia. The objective of our pilot study was to evaluate within a European population of breast cancer patients the detection rate of SLNs using ICG and the HyperEye system and the concordance in SLNs detected using this method and the standard method involving RI and a gamma probe...

: Neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast is an extremely rare tumor. A standard treatment has yet to be established because only a few cases have been reported in literature. The authors report five cases observed from January 2007 to December 2014 and a review of literature. Four patients underwent quadrantectomy and in two cases axillary nodal dissection and only one to mastectomy with axillary nodal dissection. Tumor size was from T1 to T2 with N0 to N1, according TNM classification...

PURPOSE: To investigate the clinical impact of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the detection of multifocal-multicentric breast cancers, already identified by mammography and ultrasound, and analyzed histologically, to evaluate its role in preoperative staging. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2012 to February 2014, 188 patients, aged 28 to 74 years, newly diagnosed with breast cancer on conventional imaging (mammography and ultrasound) were enrolled. They underwent preoperative contrast-enhanced 3T MRI...

A 72-year-old woman underwent mastectomy with axillary lymph node dissection for left breast cancer at the age of 43 years, and was diagnosed with breast cancer metastasis to the pleura at the age of 68 years. She had been sequentially treated with hormonal therapies, but complained of a cough and dyspnea after 4 years. Chest radiography showed right pleural effusion, and cytological examination of the pleural effusion revealed adenocarcinoma cells. Biweekly paclitaxel and bevacizumab therapy was administered...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 5-10% of breast cancers are hereditary and their biology and prognosis appear to differ from those of sporadic breast cancers. In this study we compared the biological features and clinical characteristics of non metastatic breast cancer in patients with BRCA mutations versus patients with a family history suggesting hereditary breast cancer but without BRCA mutations (BRCA wild type) versus patients with sporadic disease, and correlated these findings with clinical outcome...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy and safety of nipple-sparing mastectomy and areola-sparing mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer are still questionable. It is estimated that the local recurrence rates following nipple-sparing mastectomy are very similar to breast-conserving surgery followed by radiotherapy. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy and safety of nipple-sparing mastectomy and areola-sparing mastectomy for the treatment of ductal carcinoma in situ and invasive breast cancer in women...

BACKGROUND: Muscle dysfunction and sarcopenia have been associated with poor performance status, an increased mortality risk, and greater side effects in oncologic patients. However, little is known about how performance is affected by cancer therapy. We investigated muscle strength in breast cancer patients in different adjuvant treatment settings and also compared it with data from healthy individuals. METHODS: Breast cancer patients (N = 255) from two randomized controlled exercise trials, staged 0-III and aged 54...

Desmoid tumor of breast is a rare benign, locally aggressive tumor with a high recurrence rate. It has been associated with scar from previous breast surgery or trauma. Especially in breast cancer patients with previous operation history, it may simulate recurrent breast cancer clinically and radiologically. We presented multimodality imaging findings (ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography/computed tomography) of chest wall desmoid tumor mimicking recurrent breast cancer in a 38-year-old patient with a history of left modified mastectomy...

Considering the high incidence of breast cancer and the subsequent need for a mastectomy, the number of patients having breast reconstruction remains relatively low the world over. Most studies from the west show that anywhere between 5% to around 50% of women proceed to reconstruction following a complete mastectomy. There is a great paucity of literature on the subject in Pakistan. Anecdotal and unofficial accounts would suggest that less than a fraction of 1% of women in Pakistan undergo reconstruction following a mastectomy...

BACKGROUND: Male breast cancer is a rare event, accounting for approximately 1% of all breast carcinomas. Although men with breast cancer had poorer survival when compared with women, data on prognosis principally derive from retrospective studies and from extrapolation of female breast cancer series. We reported the case of a very long survival patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A caucasian 42-year-old man underwent radical mastectomy with axillary dissection for breast cancer in 1993...

BACKGROUND: Molecular profiling using breast cancer subtype has an increasing role in the multidisciplinary care of the breast cancer patient. We sought to determine the role of breast cancer subtyping in breast reconstruction and specifically if breast cancer subtyping can determine the need for postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) and predict recurrence-free survival (RFS) to plan for the timing and technique of breast reconstruction. METHODS: We reviewed prospectively collected data from 1931 reconstructed breasts in breast cancer patients who underwent mastectomy between November 1999 and December 2012...
