P2X7 is a non-selective cation channel activated by extracellular ATP. P2X7 activation contributes to the pro-inflammatory response to injury or bacterial invasion and mediates apoptosis. Recently, P2X7 function has been linked to chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain. P2X7 may contribute to pain modulation both by effects on peripheral tissue injury underlying clinical pain states, and through alterations in central nervous system processing, as suggested by animal models. To further test its role in pain sensitivity, we examined whether variation within the P2RX7 gene, which encodes the P2X7 receptor, was associated with experimentally induced pain in human patients...

PURPOSE: Radiation-induced skin injury represents one of the most common side effects in breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant whole-breast radiotherapy. Numerous systemic and topical treatments have been studied in the prevention and management of radiation-induced skin injury without providing sustainable treatment strategies. While superficial barrier-forming skin products such as dressings are the standard of care in wound care management, their utilization as preventive treatment approach in radiotherapy has barely attracted attention...

INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer is the leading type of cancer causing death in women worldwide. The incidence of the disease is expected to grow worldwide due to the aging of the population and risk factors related to lifestyle behaviors. Considering the lifestyle of women with breast cancer before or after surgery, pilates exercise may be a complementary intervention additionally to standard treatment. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the efficacy of pilates compared to other exercises and to no exercise for women with breast cancer diagnosis...

Chronic pain following surgery, persistent postsurgical pain, is an important highly prevalent condition contributing to significant symptom burden and lower quality of life. Persistent postsurgical pain is relatively refractory to treatment hence generating a high need for preventive strategies and treatments. Therefore, the identification of patients at risk of developing persistent pain is an area of active ongoing research. Recently it was demonstrated that peri-operative disruptions in central pain processing may be able to predict persistent postsurgical pain at long term follow-up in breast cancer patients...

We report our experience with a patient with breast cancer who showed recurrence in the nipple skin 5 years and 10 months after a breast-preserving surgery. The patient was a woman, and was 65-years old at the time of initial surgery. Breast-preserving surgery and axillary lymph-node dissection were performed for left breast cancer. Invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast(pT3N0M0)was triple-negative, and the patient postoperatively received adjuvant chemotherapy. Left breast pain developed 5 years and 6 months after surgery...

While skull base metastases from breast cancer are not uncommon, there are relatively few reported cases in the literature. We report a case of skull base metastasis of breast cancer that resulted in dysphasia, odynophagia, and dysarthria. The case involved a woman in her 50 s who was diagnosed with cancer of the right breast(cT4N1M0, cStage III B)at another medical institution 9 years previously and who underwent a partial mastectomy and an axillary lymph node dissection following neoadjuvant chemotherapy...

REVIEW
Randy S Roth
In line with other major surgeries including breast cancer surgery (BCS), recent studies suggest a striking rate of chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) following breast reconstruction. This commentary will critically examine evidence for the degree to which the prevalence of CPSP following breast reconstruction is directly attributable to reconstructive surgery. The discussion will trace similarities and distinctions between breast reconstruction and BCS in considering the risk for CPSP, and describe recent advances in the definition of CPSP, highlighting methodological limitations in the general investigation of CPSP, which also characterize the study of CPSP more specifically for breast reconstruction outcome...

Idiopathic granulomatous lobular matitis (IGLM) is a rare non-specific inflammatory disease of the breast. Although IGLM is completely benign, it is easily confused with cancer due to progressive breast lump with firmly unilateral and discrete mass, nipple retraction and sinus formation. Patients with IGLM are usually associated with inflammation of the overlying skin. This study aimed to investigate the clinical characteristics of IGLM, treatment options and prognosis. From January 2010 to February 2015, 75 IGLM patients in our hospital were included, with an average age of 35...

BACKGROUND: Metastatic lesions to the proximal femur occur frequently (about 10% of patients with cancer) and require surgical treatment. There are many surgical methods of treatment, however, use of the tumor modular endoprostheses seems to be particularly promising. The aim of study was to evaluate oncological and functional results of treatment in patients with proximal femur metastases. Oncological results were evaluated considering the survival of patients and the number of local recurrences...

Background: Sexual health issues can be characterized by vaginal laxity (VL), sexual distress, and sexual dysfunction. The epidemiology of these issues in plastic surgery patients, and especially breast cancer survivors, remains poorly understood. Objectives: To prospectively assess sexual health issues in a plastic surgery patient population with and without breast cancer. Methods: A prospective cohort study was created in our practice from June to August 2017 with administration of a survey including the vaginal laxity questionnaire (VLQ), female sexual distress scale-revised (FSDS-R), and female sexual function index (FSFI)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the analgesic efficacy of continuous interpectoral block (CIPB) compared to intravenous analgesia (IV) after breast surgery. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A prospective, comparative and randomised study of women aged from 18-75years, ASAI-III, operated for breast cancer. In group1 (CIPB) after general anaesthetic, an ultrasound-guided interpectoral catheter was placed and 30mL of 0.5% ropivacaine was administered through it. In the event of an increase in heart rate and blood pressure >15% after the surgical incision, intravenous fentanyl 1μg·kg-1 was administered, repeating the dose as necessary...

PURPOSE: Breast cancer treatments may lead to chronic pain. For some breast cancer survivors (BCS), this experience can develop into the perception of living with chronic pain. The majority of BCS are postmenopausal and have hormone receptor-positive (HR+) breast cancer requiring aromatase inhibitors (AIs). Neither the prevalence nor risk factors associated with the perception of living with chronic pain among this population are well defined. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional survey among postmenopausal, HR+ BCS who previously took or were currently taking AIs...

BACKGROUND: Advanced therapeutic strategies are often accompanied by significant adverse effects, which warrant equally progressive countermeasures. Physical exercise has proven an effective intervention to improve physical function and reduce fatigue in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Effects of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in this population are not well established although HIIT has proven effective in other clinical populations. The aim of the OptiTrain trial was to examine the effects of concurrent resistance and high-intensity interval training (RT-HIIT) or concurrent moderate-intensity aerobic and high-intensity interval training (AT-HIIT), to usual care (UC) on pain sensitivity and physiological outcomes in patients with breast cancer during chemotherapy...

Avoidance of general anaesthesia for breast surgery may be because of clinical reasons or patient choice. There is emerging evidence that the use of regional anaesthesia and the avoidance of volatile anaesthetics and opioid analgesia may have beneficial effects on oncological outcomes. We conducted a prospective observational case series of 16 breast cancer surgeries performed under thoracic paravertebral plus pectoral nerve block with propofol sedation to demonstrate feasibility of technique, patient acceptability and surgeon satisfaction...
