BACKGROUND: Postoperative infections contribute substantially to morbidity and mortality after congenital heart disease surgery and are often preventable. We sought to identify risk factors for postoperative infection and the impact on outcomes after congenital heart surgery, using data from the International Quality Improvement Collaborative for Congenital Heart Surgery in Developing World Countries. METHODS AND RESULTS: Pediatric cardiac surgical cases performed between 2010 and 2012 at 27 participating sites in 16 developing countries were included...

Purpose Genetic testing for breast cancer risk is evolving rapidly, with growing use of multiple-gene panels that can yield uncertain results. However, little is known about the context of such testing or its impact on treatment. Methods A population-based sample of patients with breast cancer diagnosed in 2014 to 2015 and identified by two SEER registries (Georgia and Los Angeles) were surveyed about genetic testing experiences (N = 3,672; response rate, 68%). Responses were merged with SEER data. A patient subgroup at higher pretest risk of pathogenic mutation carriage was defined according to genetic testing guidelines...

Importance: Guidelines assert that contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) should be discouraged in patients without an elevated risk for a second primary breast cancer. However, little is known about the impact of surgeons discouraging CPM on patient care satisfaction or decisions to seek treatment from another clinician. Objective: To examine the association between patient report of first-surgeon recommendation against CPM and the extent of discussion about it with 3 outcomes: patient satisfaction with surgery decisions, receipt of a second opinion, and receipt of surgery by a second surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Indications for postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) in patients with T1 to T2, lymph node-negative (N0) breast cancer with "high-risk" features are controversial. The European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) 22922 and National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group MA20 trials reporting improved 10-year disease-free survival with lymph node irradiation included patients with high-risk N0 disease, but, to the authors' knowledge, benefits in patients receiving modern systemic therapy are uncertain...

BACKGROUND: Usage of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients is increasing, despite scant evidence that it improves outcomes. Little is known about the knowledge, perspectives, and clinical characteristics of surgeons associated with MRI use. METHODS: Women with early-stage breast cancer undergoing definitive surgery between July 2013 and August 2015 were identified from the Los Angeles and Georgia Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) registries and were asked to name their attending surgeons...

Histo-blood group antigens (HBGAs) expressed on enterocytes are proposed receptors for rotaviruses and can be measured in saliva. Among 181 Pakistani infants in a G1P[8] rotavirus vaccine trial who were seronegative at baseline, anti-rotavirus immunoglobulin A seroconversion rates after 3 vaccine doses differed significantly by salivary HBGA phenotype, with the lowest rate (19%) among infants who were nonsecretors (ie, who did not express the carbohydrate synthesized by FUT2), an intermediate rate (30%) among secretors with non-blood group O, and the highest rate (51%) among secretors with O blood group...

CONTEXT: Most estrogen-dependent breast cancers occur after menopause despite low levels of circulating estrogens. Breast expression of the estrogen-biosynthetic enzyme, aromatase, is proposed to drive breast cancer development after menopause. However, the effects of menopause on breast aromatase expression are unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of menopause on breast aromatase expression in relation to body mass index (BMI), white adipose tissue inflammation (WATi) and systemic markers of metabolic dysfunction...

Obesity is associated with breast white adipose tissue (WAT) inflammation, elevated levels of the estrogen biosynthetic enzyme, aromatase, and systemic changes that have been linked to the pathogenesis of breast cancer. Here, we determined whether metabolic obesity, including changes in breast biology and systemic effects, occurs in a subset of women with normal body mass index (BMI). Breast WAT and fasting blood were collected from 72 women with normal BMI (<25 kg/m(2)) undergoing mastectomy for breast cancer risk reduction or treatment...

OBJECTIVES: Trastuzumab (H) and pertuzumab (P) with standard chemotherapy is approved for use in the neoadjuvant setting for human epidermal growth receptor 2 -positive patients. A retrospective analysis was performed of patients treated with dose-dense (dd) doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) followed by paclitaxel (T), trastuzumab, and pertuzumab (THP) in the neoadjuvant setting. Here, the pathologic complete response (pCR) rates are reported. METHODS: An electronic medical record review was conducted of patients treated with HP-based therapy in the neoadjuvant setting from September 1, 2013, to March 1, 2015...

134 Background: The rapid development of oral chemotherapy agents brings unique challenges. These drugs must be treated with the same vigilance as parenteral chemotherapy. The oral chemotherapy system is not optimized or integrated across our hospital. A quality assessment survey identified the need for a better means to monitor and improve oral chemotherapy patient outcomes. METHODS: Patient and staff satisfaction with the current process was measured. A chartered multidisciplinary task force reviewed existing practice and developed a program to identify patients, ensure drug access, standardize prescription and consent, ensure on-going clinical support including patient education, regimen specific adherence monitoring, toxicity assessment and address patient concerns...

177 Background: Contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) use is increasing in women who are not at increased risk of contralateral cancer development and will experience no survival benefit from the more morbid procedure. Little is known about treatment decision-making or provider interactions. METHODS: We surveyed a weighted random sample of newly diagnosed patients with early-stage breast cancer who were treated in 2013-14, identified through the population-based SEER registries of Los Angeles and Georgia about 3 months after surgical treatment, and merged with SEER data (N=2632, RR=70%), to determine receipt of diagnostic tests and factors related to the decision about surgery (including knowledge and perceived physician recommendation)...

175 Background: Many breast cancer patients overestimate their risk of distant recurrence after treatment. We explored risk perception in a large, diverse population of breast cancer patients with favorable prognosis and assessed associations between overestimation and quality of life (QoL). METHODS: As part of the iCanCare Study, we surveyed a weighted random sample of newly diagnosed patients with early-stage breast cancer treated in 2013-14, identified through the population-based SEER registries of Los Angeles & Georgia about 3 months after surgical treatment (N = 2632, RR = 70%)...

BACKGROUND: The phrase "high-risk for breast cancer" is used to identify various groups at elevated cancer risk, and the appropriate surveillance and risk-reducing strategies differ based on the etiology of risk. Here, we review the utility of patient-reported data to capture women with modifiable lifestyle risk factors and those suitable for genetic counseling referral. METHODS: Patient-reported data from a web-based survey were used to capture personal history, multi-generational family history, and lifestyle factors (body mass index, alcohol consumption, physical activity)...

BACKGROUND: The National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines recommend axillary imaging prior to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in breast cancer patients who are clinically node negative (cN0) by physical examination. However, the benefit of this approach remains uncertain. The purpose of this study was to determine whether abnormal axillary imaging pre-NAC predicts nodal metastases post-NAC (ypN+) in cN0 patients. METHODS: cN0 patients undergoing NAC followed by axillary surgery were identified...
