Local DCIS Recurrence After Skipping Adjuvant Radiation

Omitting radiation after lumpectomy for pure ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) does not improve the chance of breast preservation in case of local recurrence, researchers from Canada have observed. Re...

Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy as Safe as Standard Procedures

Nipple-sparing mastectomy has a low rate of disease recurrence, similar to that seen with standard mastectomy. Medscape Medical News

Nipple-sparing mastectomy has low rate of breast cancer recurrence

(American College of Surgeons) Women with breast cancer who undergo nipple-sparing mastectomy have a low rate of the cancer returning within the first five years, when most recurrences in the breast a...

COUNTERPOINT: Should Radiation Therapy After Surgery for Ductal Carcinoma In Situ Be Standard Practice?

To universally recommend breast irradiation for all women after excision of DCIS lesions ignores information now available to us that can spare the majority of women with DCIS the downsides of RT, but...

Study finds low rate of breast cancer recurrence after nipple-sparing mastectomy

Women with breast cancer who undergo nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) have a low rate of cancer returning within the first five years when most recurrences in the breast are diagnosed, findings of a si...

Controversies in the Treatment of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ.

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) accounts for 20% of all newly diagnosed breast cancers. Mastectomy was once the gold standard for the treatment of DCIS; however, breast-conserving surgery (BCS) has be...

Impact of Preoperative Breast MR Imaging and MR-guided Surgery on Diagnosis and Surgical Outcome of Women with Invasive Breast Cancer with and without DCIS Component.

Purpose To (a) compare the diagnostic accuracy of breast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with that of conventional imaging (digital mammography and breast ultrasonography) in the identification of duc...

Ductal Carcinoma in Situ: Quantitative Preoperative Breast MR Imaging Features Associated with Recurrence after Treatment.

Purpose To investigate whether specific imaging features on breast magnetic resonance (MR) images are associated with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) recurrence risk after definitive treatment. Materi...

Oncoplastic breast conservation surgery is oncologically safe when compared to wide local excision and mastectomy.

Support for the oncological safety of oncoplastic breast conservation surgery (OBCS) is mostly based on evidence comparing recurrence rates after OBCS to wide local excision (WLE). However, OBCS is of...

Post-mastectomy cancer recurrence with and without a continuous paravertebral block in the immediate postoperative period: a prospective multi-year follow-up pilot study of a randomized, triple-masked, placebo-controlled investigation.

Retrospective studies have associated perioperative regional anesthesia/analgesia during mastectomy for breast cancer with a decreased incidence of cancer recurrence. However, to date, no prospective ...
