This study was to assess a gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) and integrin αvβ3 dual targeting tracer 68Ga-BBN-RGD for positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) imaging of breast cancer and metastasis. Materials and Methods: Twenty-two female patients were recruited either with suspected breast cancer on screening mammography (n = 16) or underwent breast cancer radical mastectomy (n = 6). All the 22 patients underwent PET/CT at 30-45 min after intravenous injection of 68Ga-BBN-RGD. Eleven out of 22 patients also accepted 68Ga-BBN PET/CT within 2 weeks for comparison. A final diagnosis wa...

Authors: Gomez-Hidalgo NR, Mendizabal E, Joigneau L, Pintado P, De Leon-Luis J Abstract To compare the maternal and the perinatal variables of the patients with pregnancy associated breast cancer (PABC) and the pregnant patients without breast cancer (PNABC), we retrospectively included 13 PABC cases and 66.265 PNABC patients. The PABC patients presented a lower mean gestational age at their delivery and had higher induction of labour and prematurity rates. A diagnosis was performed before stage III in 77% of the cases. The overall survival was 90%; moreover, we collected 16 manuscripts when gathering data from 158...

Supplementation with Robuvit® in post-mastectomy post-radiation arm lymphedema. Minerva Chir. 2018 Jun;73(3):288-294 Authors: Belcaro G, Dugall M, Cotellese R, Feragalli B, Cianchetti E, Cesarone MR Abstract BACKGROUND: Post-mastectomy lymphedema is one of the most significant, non-life-threatening complications following breast cancer surgery and radiotherapy. Post-mastectomy post-radiotherapy (PMPR) lymphedema is related to damages to lymphatics and/or veins during/after axillary surgery and radiotherapy. The management of this condition is very challenging; the comprehensive decongestive therapy...
