Barranger E Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the impact of systematic radiological review by breast specialist radiologist of malignant breast lesion imaging on the therapeutic management of patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data collection was performed for patients with histopathologically proved breast cancer or suspicious breast lesion on imaging realized out of our institution. Patients underwent systematic mammary and axillary ultrasound, imaging review and if necessary complementary mammographic images. We analyzed the number of additional breast biopsies and axillary lymph node fine needle aspiration (...

Conclusions: Our model is more reliable and stable to assist doctors predict the SLN metastasis in breast cancer patients before operation. Introduction The incidence of breast cancer is the first in female malignant tumors, in which the highest incidence of breast cancer has been reported in Europe and the United States, however, in recent years, the incidence of breast cancer in China has annually increased (1, 2). Based on surgery as an important step in the treatment of breast cancer, in recent years, different individuals have never stopped exploration of a novel and optimum approach. Besides, NSABP-04, ASCOG-...

CONCLUSIONS: This model could be a helpful tool for the surgeon to help in predicting which cases have a higher likelihood of achieving a pathologically complete response and therefore selecting those who may benefit from a post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy sentinel lymph node biopsy and avoid unnecessary axillary lymphadenectomy.

Conclusions: After NST, image-guided FNA/VACB can accurately identify patients with a breast pCR. Based on these results, a prospective clinical trial has commenced in which breast surgery is omitted in patients with a breast pCR after NST according to image-guided biopsy.

Conclusion ACC can be extensively infiltrative and present much larger than its radiological size, as reported in our case. Use of better imaging modalities judiciously, in these cases, are needed to more accurately predict the true pathological size of ACC to prevent inadequate surgery.

ConclusionsPrognosis of luminal breast carcinoma can be predicted using Ki67 as a continuous variable and a standard cut-off value of 14%. Information about the specimen type used to determine ki67 should be recorded in the pathological report.

ConclusionThis is the most important series of patients followed 2.3 years after SLND without axillary lymphadenectomy after NAC for an advanced breast cancer, showing acceptable results. The current series validate the safety of this conservative strategies avoiding systematic lymphadenectomy to patients without initially involved axillary node treated with NAC.Citation Format: Classe J-M, Loaec C, Alran S, Paillocher N, Tunon-Lara C, Gimbergues P, Faure-Virelizier C, Chauvet M-P, Lasry S, Dupre P-F, Verhaeghe J-L, De Blaye P, Gutowski M, Barranger E, Lecuru F, Lefevre Lacoeuille C, Loussert L, Lambaudie E, Ferron G, Camp...

ConclusionsEfforts on minimizing surgical invasiveness are greatly developed in systemic treatment and non-surgical local control. However, surgery is the fastest and the most economical way to obtain pathological complete remission, and still has space to be completed. NEALND may be a feasible surgical alternative with minimal invasiveness, suitable to a category of patient demanding excellent cosmetic outcome. Evaluation of long-term survival, complication rates and cosmetic results are mandatory in order to further estimate the applicability of this type of surgical management in treatment of breast cancer.ReferencesSuz...
