Breast-conserving surgery (BCS) is the traditional surgical treatment for early-stage breast cancer patients. There are evidences indicating that oncoplastic-BCS (displacement technique) c...
The aim of this study is to asses the oncological safety of oncoplastic breast surgery, and its impact on patient satisfaction.
Role of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery In Breast Cancer Treatement
Introduction: physical therapy is essential in preventing motor and functional complications after breast cancer surgery. However, there is no prospective randomized study of different phy...
Bleeding is an important consideration in breast surgeries that involve large resections of soft tissues in the breast. Inappropriate bleeding during or after surgery, can lead to uncomfor...
Oncoplastic breast surgery aims to optimize efficacy of surgical resection and cosmesis to maximize patient satisfaction; however, despite the benefits, oncoplastic techniques have not been widely ado...
The main goal of oncoplastic breast surgery (OBS) is to optimize cosmetic outcomes and reduce patient morbidity, while still providing an oncologically-safe surgical outcome and extending the target p...
To prospectively determine the feasibility of preoperative supine breast MRI in breast cancer patients scheduled for oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery.
Oncoplastic breast surgery (OBS), which combines the concepts of oncologic and plastic surgery, is becoming more common worldwide. We report the results of OBS in a Japanese patient with early breast ...
Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast grows in a diffuse pattern, making complete surgical excision difficult. This results in high rates of positive margins and low rates of successful breas...
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
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.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
