Ultrasound-Assisted Tumor Surgery in Breast Cancer - A Prospective, Randomized, Single-Center Study (MAC 001).

08:00 EDT 5th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Ultrasound-Assisted Tumor Surgery in Breast Cancer - A Prospective, Randomized, Single-Center Study (MAC 001)."

 Breast-conserving therapy is associated with a risk of tumor-involved margins. For intraoperative orientation, non- palpable or indistinctly palpable lesions are wire-marked prior to surgery. Ultrasound-guided surgery has the potential to reduce the number of tumor-involved margins. In the MAC 001 trial we evaluated ultrasound-guided breast-conserving surgery compared to wire-guided surgery with regard to free tumor margins, duration of surgery and resection volume.

Re-interpretation of PAM50 gene expression as quantitative tumor dimensions shows utility for clinical trials: application to prognosis and response to paclitaxel in breast cancer.

We recently showed PAM50 gene expression data can be represented by five quantitative, orthogonal, multi-gene breast tumor traits. These novel tumor 'dimensions' were superior to categorical intrinsic...

Do Compression Sleeves Reduce the Incidence of Arm Lymphedema and Improve Quality of Life? Two-Year Results from a Prospective Randomized Trial in Breast Cancer Survivors.

In a previous randomized controlled trial it has been demonstrated that arm compression sleeves worn immediately after breast cancer surgery, including axillary lymph node removal in addition to physi...

A Prospective Two Center Study Comparing Breast Cancer Lesion Size Defined by 2D Shear Wave Elastography, B-Mode Ultrasound, and Mammography with the Histopathological Size.

 The aim of the present study was to determine the accuracy of breast cancer measurement with 2 D shear wave elastography (2 D SWE), B-mode ultrasound, and mammography by comparing these methods...

Influence of the subtype on local recurrence risk of breast cancer with or without radiation therapy.

To investigate if intrinsic subtypes of breast cancer predict different risks of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) following breast-conserving surgery (BCS) with and without postoperative rad...

Effectiveness of myofascial release after breast cancer surgery in women undergoing conservative surgery and radiotherapy: a randomized controlled trial.

The scars derived from the treatment of breast cancer lead to adverse effects such as fibrosis or retractions of the connective tissue. Myofascial release (MR) seeks to reduce restrictions of the fasc...

Comparison of Conventional With Sonography Assisted Breast Surgery

Aim of the study is to test whether surgical removal of a tumor under sonographic control as compared to conventional method reduces the rate of resections and local relapse

Comparison of Conventional With Sonography Assisted Breast Surgery After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

Aim of the study is to investigate whether intra-surgical visualisation of malignoma reduces the resection rate in the case of R1 resection compared to the procedure without sonographic vi...

Chemotherapy Plus Surgery in Treating Women With Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining surgery with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells. It is...

MRI-Guided Ultrasound Energy in Treating Patients With Stage I, Stage II, or Stage IIIA Breast Cancer

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The edges of tissue removed in a surgery for assessment of the effectiveness of a surgical procedure in achieving the local control of a neoplasm and the adequacy of tumor removal. When the margin is negative or not involved by tumor (e.g., CANCER) it suggests all of the tumor has been removed by the surgery.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
