BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the number of lymph nodes removed at SLNB, and what factors might bias a surgeon's decision to remove additional nodes. METHODS: A prospectively maintained database was reviewed. All patients that had SLNB for primary treatment of breast cancer between January 2012 and March 2016 were identified. Clinicopathologic factors were used to compare the number of LNs and rates of node positivity. RESULTS: One thousand six hundred and three patients were included...

The objective was to determine the 10-year oncological safety of nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) in patients diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The use of NSM preserves the nipple-areola complex (NAC). As residual fibroglandular breast tissue can remain behind the spared NAC, its use for patient with breast cancer is controversial. The oncologic outcomes and complication rates after performing NSM compared to other techniques are still under debate and a concern when treating patients with breast cancer...

The management of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has traditionally followed the evidence base for invasive breast cancer using surgery, radiation therapy, and drug therapy to remove the DCIS from the breast and reduce the risk of recurrence for both DCIS and invasive breast cancer. Because of concerns regarding the overtreatment of DCIS, randomized controlled trials have been established to test the outcomes (invasive breast cancer outcomes and patient-reported outcome measures) of active surveillance compared with guideline-concordant care for low-risk (for progression) DCIS...

PURPOSE: Atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) identified on percutaneous breast biopsy represents a high-risk lesion, upgrading to cancer with surgical excision in ~7-45.8% of cases. Routine excision is questioned due to potential overtreatment and cost. This study evaluates clinical, imaging, and histologic features to predict the risk of upgrade. METHODS: With IRB approval, a single-institution retrospective review was performed of patients who underwent surgical excision of ADH diagnosed by core biopsy from June 2005 to June 2013...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Current randomized controlled trials are investigating the outcomes of non-surgical treatment for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We sought to evaluate pre-operative factors associated with no residual disease at definitive resection following a core needle biopsy (CNB) diagnosis of DCIS. METHODS: Eight hundred and thirty-four operations for DCIS were performed at our institution between January 2004 and October 2014. We evaluated patient and biopsy tumor characteristics to determine pre-operative factors associated with no residual disease at surgical resection using uni- and multivariable analyses...

AIM: Aim of the present study is to evaluate the risk of residual neoplastic foci, in patients treated with breast conservative surgery, based on duct carcinoma in situ (DCIS) grading. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study is based on a retrospective analysis of 419 resection specimens relative to 161 patients. All these patients underwent surgical re-excision when the first specimen had shown one or more margins involved by DCIS. Margins were oriented and the side of margin involved was recorded...

BACKGROUND: Breast carcinoma presented with nipple discharge is a rare condition. There is theoretical concern about preserving nipple in these patients since the risk of nipple-areolar complex involvement may be greater, but not many studies in the literature have addressed on this issue. The aim of the current study was to determine the incidence and outcome of nipple preservation in breast cancer associated with nipple discharge. METHODS: Medical records of patients who were diagnosed to have breast carcinoma and presented with nipple discharge from May 2009 to October 2014 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: When a nipple margin of a nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) contains malignancy, current practice includes removal of the nipple or nipple areola complex (NAC). We evaluated rates and trends of positive nipple margins, subsequent management, and oncologic outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review of all NSM at our institution from 2007 to 2014 was performed. A descriptive analysis was performed of patients with positive nipple/subareolar margins...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the rates of diagnostic underestimation at stereotactic percutaneous core needle biopsies (CNB) and vacuum-assisted biopsies (VABB) of nonpalpable breast lesions, with histopathological results of atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) subsequently submitted to surgical excision. As a secondary objective, the frequency of ADH and DCIS was determined for the cases submitted to biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of 40 cases with diagnosis of ADH or DCIS on the basis of biopsies performed between February 2011 and July 2013, subsequently submitted to surgery, whose histopathological reports were available in the internal information system...

Demand for conservative mastectomies continues to increase as more patients choose to undergo breast reconstruction, often with simultaneous contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM). In addition, the increasing use of risk-reducing surgery in high-risk groups has contributed to the increased use of these techniques. We have reviewed the indications and outcomes of a large group of patients undergoing nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) at this institution. In total, 728 nipple-sparing mastectomies (NSMs) were performed in 413 patients between 2000 and 2013, for treatment of breast cancer (n=269) or risk reduction (n=459)...

Breast conservation therapy (BCT) has a reported incidence of positive margins ranging widely in the literature from 20% to 70%. Efforts have been made to refine standards for partial mastectomy and to predict which patients are at highest risk for incomplete excision. Most have focused on histology and demographics. We sought to further define modifiable risk factors for positive margins and residual disease. A retrospective study was conducted of 567 consecutive partial mastectomies by 21 breast and general surgeons from 2009 to 2012...

OBJECTIVE: There have been calls to remove 'carcinoma' from terminology for in situ cancers such as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), to reduce overdiagnosis and overtreatment. We investigated the effect of describing DCIS as 'abnormal cells' versus 'pre-invasive breast cancer cells' on women's concern and treatment preferences. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Community sample of Australian women (n=269) who spoke English as their main language at home. DESIGN: Randomised comparison within a community survey...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of invasive breast carcinoma in patients with preoperative diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by stereotactic vacuum-assisted biopsy (SVAB) performed for microcalcification-only lesions, and to identify the predictive factors of invasion. METHODS: From 2000 to 2010, the records of 353 DCIS patients presenting with microcalcification-only lesions who underwent SVAB were retrospectively reviewed...

CASE: A 58-year old woman presented with microcalcifications in her left breast. A biopsy showed a low-grade ductal carcinoma in situ. A tumorectomy was performed using a harpoon-shaped guide wire to remove the entire lesion. No additional therapy was given. Six months later during follow-up the mammography revealed that the distal end of the guide wire was still present in the left breast. CONCLUSION: When performing a tumorectomy using a guide wire, the completeness of the wire should be checked during surgery...

DCIS (Ductal carcinoma in situ) constitutes 15,2% of breast cancers. Conservative surgery coupled with adjuvant radiotherapy is often recommended. The rate of revision surgery is high, from 30 to 60%. The concern is a high quality resection within clear margins with a satisfactory aesthetic result. The objective of this review is to precise the place of oncoplastic surgery in DCIS care. Among risk factors of recurrence, tumoral invasion of surgical margins is capital. In histology, clear margins usually adopted for DCIS are 2mm, even though there is no international consensus...

OBJECTIVE: There are increasing rates of mastectomy and bi-lateral mastectomy in women diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). To help women avoid decisions that lead to unnecessary aggressive treatments, there have been recent calls to remove the cancer terminology from descriptions of DCIS. We investigated how different proposed terminologies for DCIS affect women's perceived concern and management preferences. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Qualitative study using semi-structured interviews with a community sample of 26 Australian women varying by education and cancer screening experience...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is associated with improved cosmesis and is being performed increasingly. Its role in BRCA mutation carriers has not been well described. This was a study of the indications for, and outcomes of, NSM in BRCA mutation carriers. METHODS: BRCA mutation carriers who underwent NSM were identified. Details of patient demographics, surgical procedures, complications, and relevant disease stage and follow-up were recorded. RESULTS: A total of 177 NSMs were performed in 89 BRCA mutation carriers between September 2005 and December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Routine resection of cavity shave margins (additional tissue circumferentially around the cavity left by partial mastectomy) may reduce the rates of positive margins (margins positive for tumor) and reexcision among patients undergoing partial mastectomy for breast cancer. METHODS: In this randomized, controlled trial, we assigned, in a 1:1 ratio, 235 patients with breast cancer of stage 0 to III who were undergoing partial mastectomy, with or without resection of selective margins, to have further cavity shave margins resected (shave group) or not to have further cavity shave margins resected (no-shave group)...

Despite lack of survival benefit, an increasing number of women diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) opt for removal of the unaffected breast in addition to the breast with known pathology, i.e. contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM). Little is known about women's decision-making processes that contribute to this rising trend, particularly for DCIS. Further obscuring the decision is the highly variable terminology used to discuss breast cancer pathologies and treatments. The purpose of this study was to investigate factors impacting risk comprehension and decision-making related to increased risk for breast cancer or DCIS...
