Marios Konstantinos Tasoulis, Tyler Hughes, Gildy Babiera, Anees B Chagpar
BACKGROUND: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) should be performed in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) undergoing mastectomy. Yet, the same logic is controversial in the setting of prophylactic mastectomy. METHODS: Surgeons were surveyed as to their practices. Statistical analyses were performed to identify associated factors. RESULTS: 238 surgeons responded to the survey. 73.1% of respondents stated they would always perform SLNB in the setting of mastectomy for DCIS, but only 6...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a preoperative needle-biopsy diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) may have an indication for a sentinel lymph node biopsy if invasive carcinoma is found. We investigated how often a positive sentinel node and invasive carcinoma occurred in patients with a preoperative diagnosis of DCIS and whether this influenced the adjuvant regime. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2005 to 2014, the records of 240 patients with needle-biopsy diagnosis of DCIS were retrospectively reviewed for postoperative pathology outcomes of the sentinel node and breast, and decisions on adjuvant treatment...

PURPOSE: Vaccination with HER2 peptide-pulsed DC1s stimulates a HER2 specific T-cell response. This randomized trial aimed to establish safety and evaluate immune and clinical responses to vaccination via intralesional (IL), intranodal (IN), or both intralesional and intranodal (ILN) injection. METHODS: Fifty-four HER2(pos) patients (42 pure DCIS, 12 early invasive breast cancer (IBC)) were enrolled in a neoadjuvant HER2 peptide-pulsed DC1 vaccine trial. Patients were randomized to IL (n=19), IN (n=19), or ILN (n=16) injection...

When ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is found on core needle biopsy, rates of upgrade to invasive cancer of 25 per cent and nodal positivity of 10 per cent have been reported. Sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) is recommended when mastectomy is performed for DCIS. We investigated the role of SLND in DCIS patients undergoing partial and total mastectomy (TM). During the study period 2004 to 2013, 170 patients with DCIS were identified with a median age of 60 years (range 26-84 years). Of these, 58.2 per cent had partial mastectomy (PM) alone, 10...

BACKGROUND: Recent discussion has suggested that some cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with high risk of invasive disease may require sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). METHODS: Systematic literature review identified 48 studies (9,803 DCIS patients who underwent SLNB). Separate analyses for patients diagnosed preoperatively by core sampling and patients diagnosed postoperatively by specimen pathology were conducted to determine the percentage of patients with axillary nodal involvement...

Axillary evaluation in women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is increasing; however, this may introduce additional morbidity with unclear benefit. Our objective was to examine the morbidity and mortality associated with axillary evaluation in DCIS. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 10,504 women aged 65-90 years with DCIS who underwent breast conserving surgery between 2002 and 2012 using SEER-Medicare database. Patients were categorized by receipt of axillary evaluation with either sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) or axillary node dissection (ALND)...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the use of axillary surgery (AS), including sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB), for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and the factors associated with its use. To determine whether utilization of SLNB is appropriate, predictors of SLNB performance were compared with factors predictive of tumor upstaging. METHODS: The National Cancer Data Base was utilized to identify patients with American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) clinical stage 0 breast cancer treated from 2004 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: A substantial proportion of women with a pre-operative diagnosis of pure ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has a final diagnosis of invasive breast cancer (IBC) after surgical excision and, consequently, a potential indication for lymph node staging. The aim of our study was to identify novel predictors of invasion in patients with a needle-biopsy diagnosis of DCIS that would help us to select patients that may benefit from a sentinel node biopsy (SNB). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 153 patients with a needle-biopsy diagnosis of DCIS between 2000 and 2014, which was followed by surgical excision...

Breast cancer guidelines advise sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) on core biopsy at high risk of invasive cancer or in case of mastectomy. This study investigates the incidence of SLNB and SLN metastases and the relevance of indications in guidelines and literature to perform SLNB in order to validate whether SLNB is justified in patients with DCIS on core biopsy in current era. Clinically node negative patients diagnosed from 2004 to 2013 with only DCIS on core needle biopsy were selected from a national database...

BACKGROUND: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is recommended when mastectomy is performed for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The role of SLNB for women with DCIS who undergo mastectomy following one or more attempts at breast-conserving surgery (BCS) is uncertain. We examined the upgrade rate and SLNB yield in women who converted to mastectomy after one or more attempts at BCS for DCIS. METHODS: All patients who underwent one or more attempts at BCS prior to conversion to mastectomy with SLNB for DCIS were identified...

The axillary treatment of patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) remains controversial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the roles of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in patients with breast DCIS. A database containing the data from 262 patients diagnosed with breast DCIS and 100 patients diagnosed with DCIS with microinvasion (DCISM) who received SLNB between January 2002 and July 2014 was retrospectively analyzed. Of the 262 patients with DCIS, 9 presented with SLN metastases (3 macrometastases and 6 micrometastases)...

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in females is a recognized premalignant disease. However, its occurrence in males is rare. Articles describing this disease are scarce with documented occurrence is less than 7% worldwide. We report a case of 52 year-old gentleman presented with 6 months history of left breast lump. It was painless with no nipple discharge. Despite an inconclusive biopsy, lumpectomy was performed in view of the suspicion of malignant disease. Histopathology confirms DCIS. He underwent mastectomy and sentinel lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND: Impact of contemporary treatment of pre-invasive breast cancer (ductal carcinoma in situ [DCIS]) on long-term outcomes remains poorly defined. We aimed to evaluate national treatment trends for DCIS and to determine their impact on disease-specific (DSS) and overall survival (OS). METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry was queried for patients diagnosed with DCIS from 1991 to 2010. Treatment pattern trends were analyzed using Cochran-Armitage trend test...

We herein report a case of adenomyoepithelioma (AME) of the breast with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) involving a 71-year-old Japanese woman. She presented with bloody discharge from the left nipple. Mammography and ultrasonography showed a well-defined polygonal tumor. Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the mass and stamp cytology of the bloody nipple discharge showed malignancy. Mastectomy and a sentinel lymph node biopsy were performed. The final diagnosis was AME of the breast with DCIS. There are no reports of AME of the breast presenting with bloody nipple discharge; upon a diagnosis of AME of the breast with bloody nipple discharge, the possibility of the coexistence of breast cancer should thus be considered when encountering such cases...
