ConclusionOverall, these guidelines provide consistent recommendations on who should receive breast reconstruction education, who is a candidate for postmastectomy breast reconstruction, and the appropriate timing of reconstruction and extent of mastectomy. Future updates from all should focus on expanding to include alloplastic and autologous forms of reconstruction and should include a broad scope of relevant questions.

Elderly women with early-stage, nonmetastatic breast cancer do not always receive recommendations for definitive surgical treatment. The reasons vary and include patient and provider-related reasons. We queried the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results database from 2010 to 2013 for women age 60 and older with stage I/II/III invasive breast cancer for whom local treatment was known. We divided the patients into 3 groups: patients for whom surgery was performed; patients for whom surgery was recommended but not performed; patients for whom surgery was not recommended and not performed. We used Kaplan–Meier meth...

Breast carcinoma is the most common malignancy in females. The estimated age-adjusted annual incidence of breast cancer in 40 European countries was 94.2 out of 100,000 in 2012 [1]. Adjuvant breast radiation therapy is a standard of care after both mastectomy and conservative breast surgery aiming to improve local control and survival [2,3]. The benefit of lymph node irradiation (mammary chain (MC), supra and infra clavicular nodes) in patients with axillary lymph nodes involvement or at high risk of relapse has been shown to improve survival in various clinical trials [4].

ConclusionsIn oncoplastic surgery patients, intra-operative placement of surgical clips is beneficial and effective in improving the delineation of the tumor bed cavity for the radiotherapy boost. Four clips are necessary and sufficient for accurate boost targeting following lumpectomy with oncoplastic reconstruction.

Abstract We have prepared the Japanese Breast Cancer Society clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for surgical treatment of breast cancer, 2018 update after a systematic review (SR) of the literature based upon the Medical Information Network Distribution Service (Minds) procedure. The CPG committee for surgical treatment of breast cancer, composed of breast surgeons and plastic surgeons treating breast cancer, has developed the CPGs. Eight clinical questions (CQs) were selected and divided roughly into the following five categories: (1) breast surgery in initial therapy (CQs 1-3); (2) axillary surgery in initial t...

CONCLUSIONS.—: Our study demonstrates that we handle transmasculine mastectomy specimens by examining 2.8 times more slides on average than for RMs, with a 2.5 times lower rate of significant pathologic findings. Prior family history of breast cancer or the use of androgen therapy before surgery in gender-affirming individuals did not increase the risk of identifying significant breast lesions. We recommend submitting 4 tissue blocks per mastectomy for individuals undergoing gender-affirming breast surgery. PMID: 31816268 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative evaluation in breast cancer patients provides correct assessment of the effect of surgical treatment on patient satisfaction and quality of life. This information is useful for communicating with patients about their expectations and postoperative results. PMID: 31806233 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewA systematic review of three databases (PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar) was conducted to appraise the current evidence behind the diagnosis and management of breast implant –associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). The goal is to help patients make informed decisions regarding reconstruction after breast cancer treatment by educating physicians on the nuances of diagnosis and treatment of BIA-ALCL.Recent FindingsFollowing recent statements by the FDA, BIA-ALCL has recently garnered the attention of both patients and plastic surgeons. To date, BIA-ALCL has been almost exclusiv...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewContralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) at the time of unilateral breast cancer surgery is increasing, though still controversial in BRCA( −) patients. We review the relevant literature regarding CPM and specifically abnormal imaging/biopsies in patients following unilateral mastectomy (UM) versus CPM and present results from our own retrospective chart review.Recent FindingsA large cohort study by van la Parra et al. examined the incidence/risk of breast biopsy at follow-up, finding the 5-year estimated biopsy rate to be the lowest for UM compared to breast-conserving surgery. Our retros...

CONCLUSION: Level III positivity rate is high and so cannot be avoided in locally advanced breast cancer following neoadjuvant chemotherapy. None of the preoperative factors predict for level III positivity. Level III positivity in cT3N1 and cT2N2 is low and these subgroups require further studies.
