Nipple-sparing mastectomy through periareolar incision with immediate reconstruction.

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]

BOSTON (CBS) — Julie Tolek remembers the exact minute her life changed forever: June 26, 2019. It was eight in the morning when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “I thought I was in a dream. Nightmare, I guess, is a better description,” Tolek recalled. “I couldn’t say the word. It couldn’t be my life.” The diagnosis: stage two grade two invasive ductal carcinoma — an aggressively growing cancer. “I chose to have a double mastectomy even though my cancer was only in one breast. I decided I wanted to do everything in my power to not have to go through this again,&rdqu...

Abstract PURPOSE: To develop recommendations for management of patients with breast cancer (BC) with germline mutations in BC susceptibility genes. METHODS: The American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society for Radiation Oncology, and Society of Surgical Oncology convened an Expert Panel to develop recommendations based on a systematic review of the literature and a formal consensus process. RESULTS: Fifty-eight articles met eligibility criteria and formed the evidentiary basis for the local therapy recommendations; six randomized controlled trials of systemic therapy met eligibility criteria. ...

Background: Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, and more than half of breast surgery patients experience severe acute postoperative pain. This meta-analysis is designed to examine the clinical analgesic efficacy of Pecs block in patients undergoing breast cancer surgery. Methods: An electronic literature search of the Library of PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science databases was conducted to collect randomized controlled trials (RCTs) from inception to November 2018. These RCTs compared the effect of Pecs block in combination with general anesthesia (GA) to GA alone in mastect...

ConclusionsAbdomen is the most popular donor site of autologous tissue breast reconstruction. Pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap and free deep inferior epigastric perforator flap are the reliable flap options. Venous superdrainage is an extra procedure that was performed routinely in TRAM breast reconstruction to reduce the incidence of venous congestion.

Conclusions: Reconstructive practices in a modern cohort of plastic surgeons suggest that immediate and implant reconstructions are performed preferentially. Respondents perceived a number of factors, including surgeon training, time spent in the operating room, and insurance reimbursement, to negatively influence the performance of autologous reconstruction.

Same-Day Discharge After Mastectomy: Breast Cancer Surgery in the Era of ERAS®. Ann Surg Oncol. 2020 Mar 27;: Authors: Jogerst K, Thomas O, Kosiorek HE, Gray R, Cronin P, Casey W, Rebecca A, Craner R, Young-Fadok T, Pockaj B Abstract BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS®) principles have been beneficial in major abdominal surgery. ERAS® was instituted in our breast surgery practice in 2017. The goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of outpatient mastectomies before and after ERAS®. METHODS: A retrospective review of all mastectomies between 1/2013 and 6/2...

, Nyman J Abstract During fractionated radiotherapy, epithelial cell populations are thought to decrease initially, followed by accelerated repopulation to compensate cell loss. However, previous findings in skin with daily 1.1 Gy dose fractions indicate continued and increasing cell depletion. Here we investigated epidermal keratinocyte response with daily 2 Gy fractions as well as accelerated and hypofractionation. Epidermal interfollicular melanocytes were also assessed. Skin-punch biopsies were collected from breast cancer patients before, during and after mastectomy radiotherapy to the thoracic wall with dail...
