DISCUSSION: Prophylactic mastectomy is the only effective preventive action against breast cancer. Women must be clearly informed of possible complications, high reoperation rate and potential pathological findings. Identifying women most at risk for breast cancer would help to better target those who will benefit most from surgery.PMID:34556291 | DOI:10.1016/j.bulcan.2021.05.007

Ann Surg Oncol. 2021 Sep 23. doi: 10.1245/s10434-021-10807-3. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: In most women ≥ 70 years old with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer, axillary staging and adjuvant radiotherapy provide no survival advantage over surgery and hormone therapy alone. Despite recommendations for their omission, sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and adjuvant radiotherapy rates remain high. While treatment side effects are well documented, less is known about the incremental spending associated with SLNB and adjuvant radiotherapy.METHODS: Using a statewide multipayer claims registry, we examined spe...

AbstractPurposeOur study aimed to explore temporal trends and survival benefit of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) in male breast cancer (MBC).MethodsMen with stage I –III unilateral breast cancer between 1998 and 2016 were identified from the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results (SEER). We compared CPM rate over the study period using the Cochrane-Armitage test for trend. Logistic regression model was used to test for factors predicting CPM. Survival an alysis was conducted in patients who underwent CPM or unilateral mastectomy (UM) with a first diagnosis of unilateral breast cancer. Kaplan–M...

Mastectomy and breast conserving surgery (BCS) followed by whole breast radiotherapy (WBRT) are the standard therapeutic options for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), although no randomized clinical trial has compared these two strategies. Adjuvant WBRT, in which 50 Gy are delivered in 25 fractions over 5 weeks after BCS, significantly increases the local control rate with low toxicity incidence [1,2]. After the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) trial results, a radiotherapy boost is standard practice in patients with invasive breast cancer after BCS.

Breast Dis. 2021 Aug 23. doi: 10.3233/BD-210043. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: The Objective was to investigate the incidence of lymphedema after breast cancer treatment and to analyze the risk factors involved in a tertiary level hospital.METHODS: Prospective longitudinal observational study over 3 years post-breast surgery. 232 patients undergoing surgery for breast cancer at our institution between September 2013 and February 2018. Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) or axillary lymphadenectomy (ALND) were mandatory in this cohort. In total, 201 patients met the inclusion criteria and had a median follow-up ...

AbstractPurposeTo examine the proportion of older women with ER  + HER2- breast cancer receiving non-operative management versus surgery, and to evaluate the use of axillary staging and adjuvant radiation in this population.MethodsWe queried the SEER database to identify all women aged 70  years or older with stage I–III ER + HER2- invasive breast cancer diagnosed between 2010 and 2016. We evaluated trends in non-operative management, breast surgery, axillary staging, and adjuvant radiation according to age at diagnosis.ResultsWe identified 57,351 older women with ER  + ...

Surg Clin North Am. 2021 Oct;101(5):845-863. doi: 10.1016/j.suc.2021.06.014. Epub 2021 Aug 7.ABSTRACTBreast cancer surgery is associated with low rates of surgical morbidity. Postoperative complications related to breast surgery include seroma, infection, hematoma, mastectomy flap necrosis, wound dehiscence, persistent postsurgical pain, Mondor disease, fat necrosis, reduced tactile sensation after mastectomy, and venous thromboembolism. Postoperative complications related to axillary surgery include seroma, infection, lymphedema, nerve injury, and reduced shoulder/arm mobility. The overall rate of complication related to ...
