Excision Followed by Radiofrequency Ablation for Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:12:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study will be to evaluate, in a multi-center setting, the ability of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of breast cancer lumpectomy sites to extend the "final" negative margin and consequently decrease the rates of re-operation. During the initial breast conservation procedure (lumpectomy), immediately following routine surgical resection of the tumor, radiofrequency energy (RFA) is applied to the wall (bed) of the fresh lumpectomy cavity, thus extending tumor free margin radially beyond the volume of the resected specimen.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

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.
