Oncoplastic Procedures in Preparation for Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Autologous Breast Reconstruction: Controlling the Breast Envelope

Conclusion: Patients with moderate to severe breast ptosis and/or macromastia who wish to undergo mastectomy with reconstruction can be offered nipple-sparing approaches safely if a staged algorithm is implemented. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.

CONCLUSION: In medium- to large-breasted patients, the modified Regnault "B" technique is a safe and repeatable level II volume-displacement oncoplastic breast-conservation technique. This technique allows extended removal (20-50% of breast tissue) of T1-T3 tumours from the upper outer quadrant and the border of outer quadrants of the breast with improved aesthetic results. The advantage of this technique is that contralateral symmetrisation is not required, while disadvantage of this technique is the skin incision on the breast skin envelope that can make some difficulties when completion mastectomy is required ...

To describe social support, self-efficacy, and exercise adherence and to measure the correlations among these factors in postoperative breast cancer patients in Southwest China. Social support, self-efficacy, and exercise adherence are interacting factors that contribute to physical and mental health and quality of life. Little is known about the status of these factors in Southwest China, and little research has explored the relationships among them. Using a stratified sampling method, we selected patients who underwent modified radical mastectomy in 20 secondary and tertiary comprehensive hospitals in Southwest China. ...

Conclusions: This case suggested that breast cancer coexisting with HER-2 amplification and EGFR E19 del may be driven by both HER-2 and EGFR signaling pathways, and patients can benefit from EGFR-TKI and anti-HER-2 therapy.

ConclusionAuthors ’ experience suggests that non-endoscopic transaxillary NSM, node surgery and endoscopic direct-to-implant breast reconstruction is a valid, oncological safe, aesthetically sound scarless option in breast cancer patients with small to moderate breast size. It should represent the incision of choic e in patient with previous breast surgery with scars that may compromise flap/NAC vascularity using traditional NSM incisions.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this narrative review was to highlight rehabilitation-relevant aspects of cancer treatment and primarily musculoskeletal impairments and rehabilitation interventions among women with breast and gynecologic cancers. For breast cancer, we reviewed post-mastectomy pain syndrome, upper quadrant dysfunction, aromatase inhibitor musculoskeletal syndrome (AIMSS), and lymphedema. For gynecologic cancers, pelvic floor dysfunction, lymphedema, and insufficiency fractures were selected.Recent FindingsThe recent breast cancer rehabilitation literature evaluates the pathophysiology of impairments...

CONCLUSION: These findings support the use of prophylactic NSM in high-risk patients. The nipples could be preserved in the majority of patients, postoperative complication rates were low, and, with limited follow-up, there were no new breast cancers.

Mesenchymal stromal cells in adipose tissue of breast cancer patients: a cross-sectional study. Cell Mol Biol (Noisy-le-grand). 2020 May 15;66(2):71-73 Authors: Gong C, Wang J, Cheng Q, Ren W, Bai J Abstract Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are important components of the tumor microenvironment and are believed to facilitate cancer growth affecting cancer cells. We investigated this issue in breast cancer patients. In this cross-sectional study biopsy or mastectomy specimens from breast cancer patients who underwent surgery were evaluated based on the presence of MSCs. Flow cytometric analysis was...
