Dosimetric Comparison of Three Radiotherapy Techniques in Irradiation of Left-Sided Breast Cancer Patients after Radical Mastectomy.

Dosimetric Comparison of Three Radiotherapy Techniques in Irradiation of Left-Sided Breast Cancer Patients after Radical Mastectomy. Biomed Res Int. 2020;2020:7131590 Authors: Hu J, Han G, Lei Y, Xu X, Ge W, Ruan C, Chang S, Zhang A, Li X Abstract Results: The VMAT plans showed superior to PTV dose conformity index (CI), homogeneity index (HI), protection of the ipsilateral lung, monitor units (MUs), and maximum dose (Dmax) to the contralateral breast compared with TSP and 9FIMRT plans. The TSP provided better protection for Dmean of the heart and left ventricle (p

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...

Authors: Rella R, Bufi E, Belli P, Conti M, Scaldaferri A, Grippo C, Franceschini G, Terribile D, Giuliani M, Manfredi R Abstract PURPOSE: To analyse the influence of tumor volume/breast volume ratio (TV/BV ratio) measured on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and other factors on surgeons' choice between large volume displacement oncoplastic surgery (LVOS) versus mastectomy (M) in patients with large sized tumors. Secondly, we investigate the predictive value of TV/BV ratio and other possible predictors for cosmetic results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 80 MRI examinations performed on 77 b...

Abstract Patients' responses to breast cancer neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) differ because of heterogeneous tumor characteristics. Reports about NACT progression are sporadic. Here we enrolled 1187 patients who received NACT in our cancer center between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2016. We analyzed the characteristics and treatments of patients with progressive disease (PD) or non-PD or pathological complete response (pCR). In total, 45 (3.8%) patients had PD. PD patients were associated with a significantly worse disease-free survival (DFS) (hazard ratio (HR) = 3.77; 95% CI, 1.77 to 8.00; P =.00...

Authors: Cho E, Lee JH, Park EH, Byun KD Abstract AIMS: To evaluate the clinical utility of supraclavicular scanning for locoregional lymph node (LN) assessment in postoperative screening surveillance using ultrasonography (US) in patients who underwent breast cancer surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From July 2004 to February 2019, 280 suspicious findings for locoregional recurrence in the lymph node (LRL) on postoperative screening US were detected in 266 asymptomatic patients who underwent breast cancer surgery. Suspicious features of LRL on US included the marked hypoechogenicity, round or irregular shape, ecc...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWomen electing to undergo breast reconstruction following mastectomy have increased in frequency. Classically studied healthcare disparities have an influence on whether women undergo reconstruction. This review evaluates these domains, globally, while exploring why they exist.Recent FindingsIn the USA, women who are young, white, with higher income and education level, private insurance, and those treated at private or academic hospitals are most likely to undergo reconstruction. Women of a minority race or ethnicity, lower socioeconomic group, early education status, and with public or no insuran...

We report a case of recurrence as Paget's disease at the core needle biopsy (CNB) entry site in a patient with microinvasive ductal carcinoma who underwent nipple-areola-skin sparing mastectomy (NASSM) and autologous reconstruction. Clinically diagnosed recurrences associated with previous needle procedures for malignant breast lesions are rare and usually occur in patients who have not received radiation therapy. The present case involved local recurrence at the skin puncture site of a patient diagnosed based on CNB findings who underwent NASSM without receiving radiation therapy. Although the removal of the CNB tract wit...
