We are presenting the case of a 37-year-old woman with a history of neurofibromatosis type 1, brain tumor, and breast cancer who was found to have a 3-cm celiac artery aneurysm during workup for a mastectomy.

A 72-year-old woman presented with 2-month history of “bruises” on the left breast. She was treated for a left breast cancer 6 years earlier. She previously had stage IA (cT1cN0M0) invasive ductal carcinoma that was estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor positive and Her2 negative. She underwent partial mastectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy th at confirmed stage pT1cN0. In the setting of bilateral silicone breast implants, she received adjuvant partial breast irradiation to 36 Gy in 9 fractions twice daily, targeting the seroma with 1.5 to 2 cm margins.

BorgenAbstractBackgroundA 10-step protocol employing multimodal analgesia was implemented in patients undergoing mastectomy to decrease the quantity of opioids prescribed at discharge.MethodsPatients who received the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol were compared to a control group. Inpatient and discharge prescription of opioids were compared using oral morphine equivalents (OMEs), along with postoperative pain ...

Authors: Laura B, Alice C, Silvia G, Cristiana B, Giuseppe DT, Antonio A, Giuseppina OM Abstract Mastectomy and breast prosthetic reconstruction is the most common surgical treatment for women diagnosed with breast cancer. In the last few years, breast prosthetic augmentation in acellular dermal matrix (ADM) has been introduced. The aim of this study is to present our single-center experience in evaluating the outcome of patients who underwent breast reconstruction in ADM, using ultrasound (US) examination. US follow-up allows evaluating both normal postoperative findings and changes and potential local complicatio...

The objective of this paper is to investigate the detectability of breast tumors having various histological types in excised breast tissues of total mastectomy. The tumor images measured by a portable impulse-radio-ultra-wideband (IR-UWB)-radar-based breast cancer detector are compared with both pathological images and images of dedicated breast positron emission tomography. It is found that the detector can detect invasive-ductal-carcinomas and extensive intraductal component in the dense breast. The density of the breast has a correlation to the effective permittivity derived from the reconstructed confocal images. The ...

We examined the influence of the patient's surgeon on patient preferences. RESULTS: Our retrospective analyses examined a study population that had similar risk profiles (age, family history of breast cancer, T category on tumor-node-metastasis staging system, tumor size, physical examination findings), surgeons consulting on similar patient types, and managed by surgeons with similar surgical performance patterns (case volumes, reexcision rates, number of reoperations, and ability to meet patient's expectations). Patients who preferred mastectomy were strongly influenced by tumor size (p

AbstractWomen are increasingly surviving breast cancer, but up to 90% experience unexpected long ‐term sequelae as a result of treatment. Symptoms may include physical, functional, emotional, and psychosocial changes that can dramatically alter the quality of life for breast cancer survivors. Primary care clinicians, including midwives, are likely to care for these women and should be familia r with common symptoms, treatment, and best practices to avoid permanent dysfunction. A holistic approach to assessment, treatment, and referral as needed is the most effective strategy. Although women experience significant changes...
