Secondary breast angiosarcoma: A multicentre retrospective survey by the national Italian association of Breast Surgeons (ANISC).

CONCLUSIONS: Secondary breast angiosarcoma is a very aggressive disease associated with a short survival outcome. The surgical approach still remains an important step in the course of treatment; furthermore, an accurate histological examination is helpful in establishing the prognosis of the patient. A mastectomy is mandatory. A longer OS was observed in patients with low-grade angiosarcoma as compared to high-grade angiosarcoma (C.I. 40-57 vs. 31-41 months).

Discussion Female-to-male transgender patients often undergo chest contouring as their initial gender affirmation surgery. As the surgical treatment of gender dysphoria continues to grow, it is imperative for plastic surgeons to understand the surgical options and associated outcomes for transmasculine top surgery. Future research is needed to improve patient selection, surgical decision making, and patient-reported outcomes for different chest contouring techniques. In addition, there is a significant knowledge gap for the ideal nipple-areolar complex shape, size, and location.

Authors: Huh JS, Kim YJ, Kim SD, Park KK Abstract PURPOSE: To analyze the clinical parameters correlated with early recovery of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy, with a focus on urethral mobility during pelvic contraction at catheter removal. METHODS: We prospectively analyzed 67 patients who underwent prostatectomy for prostate cancer at Jeju National University Hospital from January 2015 to June 2018. At the time of catheter removal, a cystography was performed in 67 men (median age, 65 years; range, 55-76 years) who had undergone robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.
