Successful Same Day Discharge After Immediate Post-Mastectomy Alloplastic Breast Reconstruction: A Single Tertiary Centre Retrospective Audit
Immediate Post Mastectomy Alloplastic Breast Reconstruction (IPMABR) traditionally requires a post-operative overnight stay. Recent initiatives have identified same day discharge as a safe option.
ConclusionsWe present an unusual case of multiple recurrent peripheral papillomas with entirely benign histologic features exhibiting malignant behavior over a protracted period of many years, with an invasion of pectoralis musculature and possibly internal mammary and mediastinal nodes. Her treatment course included multiple surgeries (ultimately mastectomy), radiation therapy, and endocrine therapy.
AbstractFungating breast cancer (FBC) is a rare entity in developed nations. But this occurrence is not uncommon in our country. The aim of this study was to review clinico-pathologic profile and outcomes of FBC in a developing country. This retrospective study consisted of patients with FBC managed at our institute (Jan 2005 –Dec 2015). Clinico-pathologic profile, management details, and outcomes were analyzed. The Kaplan-Meier method was used to determine overall survival (OS). Log-rank test was performed to compare survival in various subgroups. Seventy-nine patients were detected to have FBC constituting 3.3% of ...
The incidence of skin flap necrosis after mastectomies is as high as 11-24%. Laser-assisted indocyanine green (ICG) angiography seems to be a promising technique to assess skin flap perfusion. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the current methodology of ICG and its objective outcome measures ability to predict mastectomy skin flap necrosis.
: Robotic nipple sparing mastectomy (R-NSM) and immediate gel implant breast reconstruction (IGBR) in the management of breast cancer had comparable clinical outcome with conventional nipple sparing mastectomy (C-NSM) and IGBR. R-NSM was associated with favorable patients ’ satisfaction of aesthetic outcome, however, at the price of longer operation time and more medical expanse if compared with C-NSM.
A 64-year old female with a history of a pulmonary embolism on rivaroxaban, breast cancer (mastectomy in 2013), hypertension, and diabetes presented for fatigue for one month. She had intermittent hemoptysis for six months. She was brought to the emergency department complaining of fatigue. Blood pressure was elevated to 165/75 mmHg. On exam, she appeared lethargic with pale conjunctiva and leg edema. She did not have a skin rash. Laboratory studies were significant for creatinine of 15.3 mg/dL, blood urine nitrogen 140 mg/dL, potassium 6.5 mEq/L.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe review the management for unaffectedBRCA1/2 mutation carriers and the local management of early-stage breast cancer.Recent FindingsFor unaffectedBRCA1/2 mutation carriers, surveillance includes annual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and mammogram (MG). Novel imaging modalities, including abbreviated protocol MRI, ultrafast/accelerated MRI, and contrast-enhanced digital mammography are being investigated. Risk-reducing mastectomy (RRM) should be considered, and nipple-areolar sparing mastectomy (NSM) is now an option. Additionally, risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO) is strongly recommend...
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]
Extrinsic compression of the heart consequent to intrapleural fluid is a rare cause of cardiac tamponade. Cases of massive hemothorax resulting in external cardiac tamponade due to injury of the internal thoracic artery (ITA) following blunt or penetrating trauma have been described in the literature. Here, we present a case of iatrogenic injury to the right ITA complicating mastectomy and deep inferior epigastric perforator flap reconstruction. It manifested as hemodynamic instability that persisted despite aggressive fluid resuscitation. Investigation with an intraoperative transesophageal echocardiogram demonstrated car...
This study confirms the potentialities of both shaped micro-textured and round smooth implants in reconstructive surgery.
