Nowadays, surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are the most frequently used modalities in the treatment of breast cancer. It is very well-known that some severe complications may result from after these treatments. Early and late complications of radiotherapy are well known. The complications of radiation therapy may be seen in (early) or after three months (late-delayed) of periods. These complications may be related with direct or indirect effect of radiation. The radiation fibrosis syndrome is a progressive fibrotic tissue sclerosis together with various clinical symptoms in the irradiation field...

Axillary lymph node status remains an important prognostic factor in early breast cancer. It is regarded as an indicator for (neo)adjuvant systemic treatment and postoperative radiotherapy of the regional lymphatics. Commenced in September 2015, the INSEMA trial is investigating whether operative determination of nodal status as part of breast conserving therapy (BCT) for early stage breast cancer (c/iT1-2 c/iN0) can be avoided without reducing oncological safety. After inclusion of 1001 patients there was general acceptance of the complex study design by patients and study doctors so that recruitment for the first randomisation (axillary sentinel lymph node biopsy [SLNB]: yes or no) achieved predicted case numbers...

BACKGROUND: Seroma formation and lymphoedema are frequently encountered complications after radical lymph node dissection (RLND). Attempts to reduce the lymphatic morbidity include the use of Ultrasonic Scalpel. The aim of the present analysis was to assess the impact of the ultrasonic scalpel on the amount of drained lymph after lymph node dissection. METHODS: Patients listed for a RLND or completion lymph node dissection (CLND) were enrolled in a prospective randomized trial to compare the impact of two surgical dissection techniques (USS versus control) on the amount of drained lymph...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer treatment-related lymphedema (BCRL) arises from a mechanical insufficiency following cancer therapies. Early BCRL detection and personalized intervention require an improved understanding of the physiological processes that initiate lymphatic impairment. Here, internal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measures of the tissue microenvironment were paired with clinical measures of tissue structure to test fundamental hypotheses regarding structural tissue and muscle changes after the commonly used therapeutic intervention of manual lymphatic drainage (MLD)...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common type of gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors, although metastasis to the perigastric lymph nodes is relatively rare, compared with liver or peritoneal metastasis. In this report, we describe a case of stomach GIST with a solitary simultaneous metastasis in the left axillary lymph node. A 68-year-old man was diagnosed with a large upper-stomach GIST, and computed tomography and positron emission tomography revealed masses in the left axilla and right mediastinum...

We aimed to emphasize how useful PSMA PET/CT findings can be while trying to restage prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy in the presence of low prostate-specific antigen values. A 64-year-old man with pT3b N1 M0 Gleason 7 adenocarcinoma of the prostate presented 5 years postoperatively with a palpable axillary mass, whereas his prostate-specific antigen was 0.08 ng/mL. Conventional imaging studies and histopathologic findings of the axillary mass biopsy revealed inconclusive results. Ga-PSMA PET/CT demonstrated PSMA-positive metastatic lesions, the largest one being located in the right axilla...

A 56 year-old man presented to our Hidradenitis Clinic with an exophytic, bovine-red, ulcerated plaque in the left axillae (figure 1). He reported that he was diagnosed with hidradenitis suppurativa when this lesion first appeared 8 years ago, as a single small, occasionally purulent, nodule, that had enlarged considerably over the past 7 months. He had previously received oral and topical antibiotics with no improvement. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

During the dissection of a 79-year-old Caucasian female cadaver, a variant of Langer's axillary arch was found unilaterally in the left axilla. While Langer's axillary arches are not uncommon, this particular variant, attaching to the biceps brachii, is much rarer with a reported prevalence of only 0.25%. The case reported here, however, is only the third example of a Langer's axillary arch that has been found in the last 14 years in the Dissecting Room at St George's, University of London, giving it an overall prevalence of approximately 1...

This study evaluates the long-term outcomes of a retrospective cohort of breast cancer (BC) patients who had received curatively intended premastectomy radiation therapy (RT). We analysed locoregional control, disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS), pathological complete remission (pCR), predictors thereof, and immediate safety. The series consisted of 187 patients with a median age of 49 years [43-60] and T2-T4 or N2 tumours. Between 1970 and 1984, they had received slightly hypofractionated RT to the whole breast, ipsilateral supraclavicular fossa and axilla ± the internal mammary chain (45-55 Gy/18 fractions of 2...

Axillary bromhidrosis has a strong negative effect on one's social life. A high success rate and few complications are criteria for a surgical treatment. The objective of this study was to evaluate a new surgical treatment modality for bromhidrosis: subcutaneous scissor with micropore. Twenty patients with bromhidrosis were treated. Patients were placed in a supine position with their treated arms abducted to 110°. After injection of 60 mL of tumescent solution into each axilla, one small incision was made at the middle axillary of the hair-bearing area...

Primary axillary venous aneurysms are rare, and there are only a handful of cases reported previously. The patient can be either asymptomatic or symptomatic, and can present with local axillary swelling, dilated venules in overlying skin associated with local discomfort, peripheral neuropathy, or pulmonary embolisms. A 30-year-old man presented with a four-month history of an uncomfortable lump in his left armpit that was associated with paraesthesia radiating down to his left forearm and hand. He had no history of arm swelling and had a normal motor neurological examination...

BACKGROUND: Axillary staging (pN) is considered one of the most important prognostic factors in breast cancer patients. However, the Z0011 study data drastically reduced the number of surgical axillary dissections in a selected group of patients, limiting the prognostic information relating to axillary involvement to the sentinel lymph node (SLN). It is known that there is a relationship between SLN total tumour load (TTL) and axillary involvement. The objective of this study is to analyse the relationship between the TTL and outcomes in patients with early stage breast cancer...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of infection with multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria (MDR-GNB) after solid-organ transplantation is increasing. Surveillance culture (SC) seems to be an important tool for MDR-GNB control. The goal of this study was to analyze the performance of SC for MDR-GNB among liver transplant (LT) recipients. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study involving patients who underwent LT between November 2009 and November 2011. We screened patients for extended spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli, extended spectrum β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA), and carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (CRAB)...
