Synchronous and metachronous breast cancer in Ukraine.

CONCLUSIONS: There should be paid a great attention to synchronous and metachronous breast cancer patients in order to find and provide the best options of their management. This is crucial to continue researches in this field of oncology. PMID: 29504518 [PubMed - in process]

Objective: To investigate the effects of different types of surgery on breast cancer prognosis in germline BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation carriers compared with noncarriers. Summary of Background Data: Although breast-conserving therapy (breast-conserving surgery followed by radiotherapy) has been associated with more local recurrences than mastectomy, no differences in overall survival have been found in randomized trials performed in the general breast cancer population. Whether breast-conservation can be safely offered to BRCA1/2 mutation carriers is debatable. Methods: The study comprised a cohort of women with invasive ...

Conclusions Decisions for altering the preliminary oncologic plan or choosing a specific alternative (eg, lumpectomy plus radiation vs mastectomy) resulted from patient education on (1) reconstructive options, (2) aesthetic pitfalls and results. and (3) their interfacing with the oncological outcomes. Ultimately, plastic surgeons influence the multispecialty breast cancer management and patient decision-making process. Therefore, oncological literacy for plastic surgeons is essential to provide state-of-the-art breast cancer care and avoidance of suboptimal patient decisions.

This is a short clinical report depicting an exceptionally early presentation of radiation-induced angiosarcoma and overview of the literature. This case highlights the need for a high level of clinical suspicion in those patients presenting with unresolving cutaneous skin changes after radiotherapy for breast cancer. Breast-conserving therapy, comprising breast-conserving surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy, has largely replaced mastectomy in the treatment of early-stage breast carcinoma. Breast angiosarcoma is a rare but severe long-term complication associated with postoperative radiotherapy (Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys...

ConclusionsSurvival of sarcoma-SMN patients is worse than sarcoma-FMN patients. Although survival and tumor characteristics appear similar for breast-SMN and breast-FMN patients, treatment differs; breast-SMN patients less often receive breast-conserving therapy. Larger studies are necessary to substantiate these exploratory findings.

Conclusion: Although pTRAM is non-inferior in terms of satisfaction to fTRAM, it is associated with a more frequent complication. It may be used in developing countries that lack facilities and limited by cost. However, pTRAM should be done by experienced surgeons to minimize the risk of complications.

Conclusion: In patients who achieve ypN0 following NAC and mastectomy, PMRT shows no additional survival benefits for any molecular subtype. PMID: 31281730 [PubMed]

Abstract Synchronous breast and cutaneous metastases from colorectal adenocarcinoma as the initial clinical manifestation, without visceral metastases, are extremely rare. We herein report the case of a 68-year-old female patient who presented with pruritic skin lesions and a breast lump 6 years after abdominoperineal resection of colorectal adenocarcinoma. Such cases can be easily misdiagnosed as cutaneous metastasis from breast cancer. However, the management of colorectal metastases differs from that of primary breast cancer, and mastectomy may be unnecessary. Timely and accurate diagnosis requires a high level...

Authors: Arnaout A, Ross D, Khayat E, Richardson J, Kapala M, Hanrahan R, Zhang J, Doherty C, Brackstone M Abstract Although mastectomy is an effective procedure, it can have a negative effect on body image, sense of attractiveness, and sexuality. As opposed to the combination of breast oncologic surgery and plastic surgery, whose primary focus is on replacing lost volume, breast-conserving oncoplastic surgery (ops) redistributes remaining breast tissue in a manner that requires vision, anatomic knowledge, and an appreciation of esthetics, symmetry, and breast function. Modern surgical treatment of breast cancer ca...

This study aimed to compare the physical characteristics, upper extremity functions and quality of life of breast cancer survivors and healthy women. METHODS: A total of 66 women participated in this study: breast cancer survivors (n= 33) and healthy counterparts (n= 33) participated in this study. The Lateral Scapular Dyskinesia Slide Test was used to evaluate scapular dyskinesia, the hand-held dynamometer was used to measure upper extremity muscular strength, the Angle Reproduction Test was used to measure upper extremity position sense, the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand questionnaire was used to assess ...
