Primary breast lymphoma(PBL) is a rare and unique type of lymphoma. Female patients are the majority, but its pathogenesis is not clear, and the estrogen may be related with the pathoganesis. Women who have breast implants have more chance to be suffered. The painless breast masses are the most common clinical manifestations, which is similar to breast cancer. Surgical resection of the mass and core needle biopsy are helpful for the diagnosis. The most common pathological type of PBL is diffuse large B cell type, with non GCB type, and it is prone to extranodal relapse in which central nervous system relapse is common which has poor prognosis...

BACKGROUND: Breast augmentation surgery poses many challenges, and meeting the patient's expectations is one of the most important. Previous reports equate 100 cc to a one-cup-size increase; however, no studies have confirmed this between commercially available bras. The aim of this study was to identify the volume increase between cup sizes across different brands and the relationship with implant selection. METHODS: Five bra cup sizes from three different companies were analyzed for their volume capacity...

BACKGROUND: Composite breast augmentation with fat grafting and an implant has become very popular in the past 5 years. This achieves the core volume projection of an implant complemented by the natural appearance and feel of fat. However, no study has looked at the complications and reoperation rates of this technique. METHODS: A retrospective chart review examined all patients who underwent the combined use of an implant and fat grafting for primary breast augmentation...

BACKGROUND: Since the 2012 approval of shaped implants, their use in breast reconstruction has increased in the United States. However, large-scale comparisons of complications and patient-reported outcomes are lacking. The authors endeavored to compare surgical and patient-reported outcomes across implant types. METHODS: The Mastectomy Reconstruction Outcomes Consortium database was queried for expander/implant reconstructions with at least 1-year postexchange follow-up (mean, 18...

BACKGROUND: The use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) has become the standard of care in breast reconstruction. However, the majority of current studies are biased or combine large databases introducing inherent flaws. Here, we present a prospective single surgeon experience comparing three ADM. METHODS: All expander based breast reconstructions between 2014 and 2015 using ADM were included. RESULTS: Eighteen patients (32 breasts) underwent reconstruction using Flex Pliable, 15 patients (22 breasts) used Alloderm, and 14 patients (20 breasts) had Dermacell...

Charalampos Sotiriadis, Steven David Hajdu, Francesco Doenz, Salah D Qanadli
Implanted venous access device (IVAD) late dysfunction is commonly caused by fibrin sheath formation. The standard method of endovascular fibrin sheath removal is performed via the femoral vein. However, it is not always technically feasible and sometimes contraindicated. Moreover, approximately 4-6 h of bed rest is necessary after the procedure. In this article, we describe an alternative method of fibrin sheath removal using the brachial vein approach in a young woman receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer...

The local delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs to tumor sites is an effective approach for achieving therapeutic drug concentrations in solid tumors. Injectable implants with the ability to form in situ represent one of the most promising technologies for intratumoral chemotherapy. However, many issues must be resolved before these implants can be applied in clinical practice. Herein, we report a novel injectable in situ-forming implant system composed of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) and ethyl oleate, and the sol-gel phase transition is activated by anions in body fluids or blood...

AIM: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy achieved from a fat-water Dixon sequence alone compared to a combination of a silicone-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence and a water-specific MRI sequence in the assessment of breast implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this institutional review board (IRB)-approved study the integrity of breast implants was assessed retrospectively in 27 patients undergoing breast MRI at 3 T. A qualitative evaluation of (set 1) a silicon-selective water-saturated short tau inversion recovery (STIR) sequence in combination with a water-only Dixon dataset (total acquisition time 7 minutes 17 seconds), and of (set 2) fat-only and water-only Dixon datasets (4 minutes 8 seconds) was performed by two readers independently evaluating the following features: margin definition of the implant, water suppression homogeneity, image quality, presence of artefacts and their effects on the imaging interpretation, and diagnostic confidence...

Breast implant durability and the mechanisms of rupture are important topics in the medical community, for patients, manufactures and regulatory medical agencies. After concerns about the Poly Implant Prosthesis (PIP) implants, the need for understanding the adverse outcomes and the failure mode to improve the breast implants increased. The objective of this research is to analyze and describe the rupture characteristics of failed explanted PIP implants to study the modes and causes of rupture. Eleven explanted PIP implants were analyzed by visual inspection and scanning electron microscopy (SEM)...

Breast reconstruction and augmentation are very common procedures, yet the prevailing current methods utilize silicone implants that may have significant local complications requiring reoperation. Lipofillling is increasingly used to contour and is considered safe, however its utility is limited by significant volume loss. A new approach could offer an alternative and increase the scope of patient choice. A small number of teams around the world are investigating a breast tissue-engineering paradigm. Conventional breast tissue engineering concepts are based on seeding a scaffold with the patients' own stem cells...

BACKGROUND: The objective of surgical management of spinal metastases is to reduce pain and improve the patient's quality of life. The operation should restore spinal stability and decompress neural structures. One surgical technique is corpectomy followed by vertebral body reconstruction and stabilisation of the spine. The procedure may be performed in patients in overall good health and a good survival prognosis. The aim of this paper is to present the outcomes of surgical management of spinal metastases in patients who underwent corpectomy followed by vertebral body reconstruction and stabilisation of the spine...

Effective drug development to combat metastatic disease in breast cancer would be aided by the availability of well-characterized preclinical animal models that (a) metastasize with high efficiency, (b) metastasize in a reasonable time-frame, (c) have an intact immune system, and (d) capture some of the heterogeneity of the human disease. To address these issues, we have assembled a panel of twelve mouse mammary cancer cell lines that can metastasize efficiently on implantation into syngeneic immunocompetent hosts...

PURPOSE: Increasingly, women are choosing immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) following mastectomy. Reports have indicated IBR may compromise post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT). We investigated the impact of IBR on timing of PMRT, target coverage, and doses to organs at risk in a modern radiotherapy practice using advanced planning techniques. METHODS: Between 2013 and 2015, PMRT was delivered to 116 patients (66 mastectomy alone, 50 IBR). PMRT was delivered with a median dose of 50 Gy in 25 fractions...

Breast implant-associated (BIA) anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare disease, comprising a small percentage of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs), reportedly 2-3%. There is currently no established standard approach to the treatment of BIA ALCL. The first case on the development of ALCL in the presence of a breast implant was reported in 1997 and the association was first identified by the Food and Drug Administration in 2011. We herein describe a case of BIA ALCL in a patient with a previous history of breast cancer and breast reconstruction who presented with hardening of her breast implant...

Heart failure has mortality rates that parallel those of breast cancer. Current management strategies include neurohormonal blockade, rate control measures, natriuretic peptide preservation, implantation of mechanical assist devices, and heart transplantation. Despite these strategies, however, the failing myocardium remains energy depleted. New strategies to promote metabolic recovery are being developed to potentially augment current treatment guidelines. For example, an unexpected finding of our own studies showed that mechanical unloading with assist devices in advanced-stage heart failure restored metabolic flux...
