A Simple Flap Design for the Salvage of Immediate Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction
Conclusions The Limberg-like rectangular flap can be used as a salvage option in complicated skin-reducing mastectomies and can be considered as a safe and effective method because of its easy-to-use nature, low cost, and no need for microsurgery experience.
CONCLUSION: Because of social, medical or psychological constraints, the rate of outpatient breast surgery remains in our practice, stable in recent years at 56%. Some ways of improvement can be envisaged, but it is likely that this rate will only increase in a very gradual manner in the years to come. PMID: 31627904 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsPatients receiving perioperative gabapentin, acetaminophen, and NSAIDs under an ERAS protocol required significantly fewer narcotics and shorter length of stay. This protocol may merit consideration for use at other centers.
ConclusionsBreast conservation may be considered a safe alternative in the surgical treatment of MBC. Future research should focus on better standardization of local therapy for MBC and improved reporting of outcomes.
ConclusionsIn our study, the preoperative classification of high risk lesion showed a 79% sensitivity (75/95) and a 22% specificity (75/342) of detecting IDC. A positive SLN was found in only 1.6% of patients with high risk CDIS lesions operated for SLNB. The use of SLNB in patients with high risk DCIS avoids reoperation in 22% of cases. Nevertheless the low risk of positive SLN finding in this setting cannot justify its routine use.Legal entity responsible for the studyJean Marie Nogaret.FundingHas not received any funding.DisclosureAll authors have declared no conflicts of interest.
Background Not all women undergo breast reconstruction despite its vital role in the recovery process. Previous studies have reported that women who are ethnically diverse and of lower socioeconomic status are less likely to undergo breast reconstruction, but the reasons remain unclear. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the demographic characteristics of our patient population and their primary reason for not undergoing breast reconstruction. Methods An institutional review board-approved, single-institution study was designed to evaluate all female breast cancer patients of all stages who underwent mastectomy ...
Breast reconstruction after nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) plays, nowadays, a fundamental role in breast cancer management. There is no consensus on the best implant-based reconstruction technique, considering 2 stages (expander-prosthesis) or direct-to-implant (DTI). A retrospective review of consecutive adult female patients who underwent NSM with breast reconstruction over a 3-year period (January 2013 to December 2015) was performed. Patients were divided into 2 groups according to the type of reconstruction: expander/prosthesis (group A) and DTI (group B). Anamnestic data were collected. Number and type of procedures...
ConclusionsThe use of intraoperative ketorolac is a useful adjunct in perioperative pain management in breast surgery and does not increase the risk of bleeding.
ConclusionWe observed a low complication rate in 94 consecutive RNSM procedures, demonstrating the procedure is technically feasible and safe. We found no early local failures at 19 months follow-up. Long-term follow-up is needed to confirm oncologic safety. Future clinical trials to study the advantages and disadvantages of RNSM are warranted.
Conclusions: The 0.25% levobupivacaine with dexamethasone 4 mg in PecS II block provided longer duration of analgesia than the TPVB in patients undergoing MRM without any adverse effects.
CONCLUSIONS: After mostly minor surgery for breast cancer, PECS II block was not superior to local infiltration by the surgeon. PMID: 31490251 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
