Recurrence at Nipple Areola Complex and Safety of Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy

To the Editor Wu et al retrospectively analyzed the patients who received nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). They compared the distant metastasis-free survival and overall survival between patients with cancer recurrence at the nipple-areola complex (NAC) and without it. The 10-year distant metastasis-free survival rates were 89.3% among patients with cancer recurrence at the NAC and 94.3% among patients without recurrence (P  = .95).

Conclusion: Our initial report shows that NSM with immediate reconstruction may successfully be performed through periareolar incision. This method maximizes esthetic effects and may be an appropriate surgical option for NSM. PMID: 32051813 [PubMed]

Background and Objectives: Whether post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) could improve prognosis for T1-2 breast cancer patients with one to three lymph node metastases remains controversial. The present study aimed to determine the significance of PMRT in patients with T1-2N1M0 breast cancer.Methods: Data of 45,646 patients from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database were analyzed; 12,585 matched patients were divided into a PMRT group and non-radiotherapy group (no-PMRT), respectively, using the propensity score matching method. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to determine the p...
