Risk-to-Benefit Relationship of Contralateral Prophylactic Mastectomy: The Argument for Bilateral Mastectomies with Immediate Reconstruction

Conclusions: Immediate reconstruction for unilateral mastectomy and contralateral prophylactic mastectomy have similar complication risk profiles, among patients as a whole and between individual breasts. These findings contribute to our understanding of the clinical impact prophylactic mastectomy and reconstruction may have on optimizing the counseling among extirpative surgeons, reconstructive surgeons, and patients. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, III.

Conclusions: Oncoplastic breast reductions allow wide resections with free margins and can be used for large cancers as an alternative to mastectomy.

CONCLUSIONS: Although a carcinoma within a preexisting benign fibroepithelial tumor is extremely rare, it is important to be aware of the possibility of invasive and metastatic disease. PMID: 29460095 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsWe confirm that PLCIS in isolation is indeed a rare entity, further contributing to the difficulty in determining the actual risk conferred by this lesion. Long-term follow-up data on larger cohorts are needed to define standardized management and outcomes for patients with PLCIS.

This study evaluates the incidence of synchronous LCIS and ILC at our institution. This is a retrospective review of our tumor registry database of women diagnosed with LCIS or ILC from 2000 to 2014. Pathology reports were evaluated to determine the incidence of pure ILC and mixed ILC/LCIS. Those with both LCIS/ILC (mixed group) and those with pure ILC (pure group) were compared for age, surgical intervention, lymph node involvement, tumor size, nuclear grade, and margins between these two groups. A total of 182 women were identified with LCIS, ILC, or mixed LCIS and ILC. There were 76 subjects with pure ILC and 90 with mi...

ConclusionADH is closely related to the presence of invasive cancer or DCIS especially when suspicious breast imaging features are present. The upstaging rate is still high in patients where initial biopsy was ADH.Citation Format: Co M, Kwong A.

Conclusions: LCIS displays intra-lesion genetic heterogeneity, and the progression from LCIS to DCIS or ILC may involve the selection of clones resulting from distinct mutational processes during clonal evolution. Our findings also suggest that cytodine deamination driven by the overexpression of APOBEC3B may drive the progression of LCIS to DCIS/ILC in a subset of cases.Citation Format: Reis-Filho JS, Schizas M, Piscuoglio S, Sakr RA, Ng CKY, Lim RS, Carniello JVS, Towers R, Martelotto L, Giri DD, de Andrade VP, Viale A, Solit DB, Weigelt B, King TA.
