Purpose: The aims of this randomized clinical trial are to assess and compare 3 different outcomes in women undergoing breast reduction surgery using two different surgical devices: the Harmonic Scalpel and electrocautery. The three metrics are: 1. the time taken to complete the operation 2. drainage volume in the days immediately following surgery, 3. patient pain in the days immediately following surgery.
The purpose of this single centre study is to evaluate whether the use of Harmonic Synergy Dissecting Hook (Harmonic Scalpel) in breast reconstruction surgery is superior to conventional diathermy in terms of improving ease and speed of perforator dissection, reducing postoperative pain, days of hospital stay and time taken to return to daily activities.
The objective of this study is to compare the results of total thyroidectomy using the new harmonic scalpel device (FOCUS) to that with the previously available harmonic scalpel device (HARMONIC ACE).
The investigators are selecting sixty (60) with breast cancer diagnoses where the surgical treatment is indicated.Furthermore the investigators divided in two groups : 1) surgical treatment using regular electric scalpel ; 2) surgical treatment using argon plasma coagulation scalpel. Our primary goal is to measure the bleeding during the surgery using the weight of the surgical tissues used. Secondary we'll evaluate the immediate post operative outcomes, like infection, hematom...
The harmonic scalpel is a tool that may reduce operative blood loss. Some studies also indicate it may result in faster surgery. A recently published randomized study from our group shows the harmonic scalpel reduces blood loss in neck dissection but it did not offer any reduction in OR time. The present study investigates the utility of the harmonic scalpel in resections involving removal of oral cavity tissues as well as the neck. Oral cavity resections are especially prone t...
RATIONALE: Timing of breast cancer surgery may improve effectiveness of treatment and may help patients live longer. PURPOSE: Clinical trial to determine whether timing of primary surgery in relation to menstrual cycle is associated with disease-free survival 5 years after surgery in women who have stage I or stage II breast cancer.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after surgery kill any remaining tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiation therapy works in treating women with locally recurrent breast cancer previously treated with repeat breast-conserving surgery.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known whether intensity-modulated radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing radiation therapy regimens in treating women with early-stage breast cancer who have undergon...
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a well established method for treatment of cutaneous malignancies. Part of this technique requires marking skin surrounding the tumor. There are two ways of marking the tissue, lightly scoring it with a scalpel or marking it with a surgical marker. This study is to determine if there is a noticeable difference in outcome between patients who have their tissue lightly scored with a scalpel or marked with a surgical marking pen.
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from peptides and a person's white blood cells may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Injecting the vaccine directly into a lymph node may cause a stronger immune response and kill more tumor cells. Giving vaccine therapy before surgery may be effective treatment for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best way to give vaccine therapy in treating p...
This is a prospective, single institution, phase I-II study of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for unresected breast cancer. Twenty-four patients with advanced breast cancer who are not candidates for surgery (metastatic disease, unresectable, medically inoperable) or decline surgery will be enrolled in a prospective study using SBRT (4 fractions of radiation therapy over 12-15 days) as the primary treatment modality.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy in different ways may kill more tumor cells. Giving it after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of radiation therapy and to see how well it works in treating women with early stage breast cancer.
The purpose of this study is to test the effect of primary progesterone on overall and disease free survival in women with operable breast cancer. The study addresses two issues related to breast cancer surgery: - Circulating progesterone at the time of surgery might counteract the detrimental effect of estrogen on survival of women with operable breast cancer. - Events at the time of surgery may have an impact on the natural history of breast cancer
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation during surgery may be an effective treatment for breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiation therapy works in treating older women who are undergoing surgery for invasive breast cancer.
This paper will present a specific tool for evaluation of cosmetic results after breast conserving surgery (BCS) and secondary breast reconstruction with free DIEP-flap. Introduction of a breast score system using digital photography seems to be a reliable tool for estimation of cosmetic results after breast surgery. The method has been employed on a specific group of 346 consecutive patients operated for breast cancer with breast conserving surgery. For the purpose of this stu...
The purpose of this study is to study patients presenting with stage IV breast cancer. Stage IV means that the breast cancer has spread to another part of the body outside the breast. This study is important because in different parts of the country some patients are being offered surgical treatment for the breast tumor and some are not. The doctors do not know if surgery for the breast tumor is helpful in patients with stage IV breast cancer. The doctors will collect informati...
RATIONALE: Vaccines may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Aldesleukin may stimulate the white blood cells to kill breast cancer cells. Giving vaccine therapy together with aldesleukin may be a more effective treatment for metastatic breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving vaccine therapy together with aldesleukin works in treating women with metastatic breast cancer.
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy, such as 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Giving these treatments after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known whether 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiation therapy works in treating older women who are undergoing surgery for stage I or stage II breast cancer.
RATIONALE: Internal radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy through a special catheter that is placed in the breast may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It may also be an effective treatment for breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well internal radiation therapy works in treating women with early-stage breast cancer.
Systemic chemotherapy along with radiotherapy has been successfully used to post-operatively manage patients following tumour resection in breast cancer. This was further supported with clinical trials conducted in the 1970s and 1980s which shows significant improvement in progression-free of tumours and overall survival rates in patients who undergo chemotherapy for operable breast cancer.(1)-(2) Neoadjuvant chemotherapy on the other hand, involves the administration of the c...
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 not yet known which treatment regimen is more effective for breast cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy plus surgery in treating women who have breast cancer.
To see if performing breast MRI before a lumpectomy will help the surgeon successfully remove the entire cancer with normal tissue margins in a single operation thereby reducing the need for additional surgical procedures. The study will also measure how well MRI can find unsuspected cancers in the same breast as the known cancer; how well MRI will find unsuspected cancers in the opposite breast; how often MRI will generate false positive MRI findings; whether routinely incorpo...
This study was prospective randomized double-blinded clinical trial on patients with thyroid disease who underwent thyroidectomy in the general surgery department, Mansoura university hospitals during the period of February 2017 to February 2018.Two techniques for vascular sealing were compared: conventional tying and harmonic scalpel
In an effort to elucidate whether the Harmonic Scalpel will improve sealing lymphatics and decrease lymphatic drainage thereby decreasing the length of time that chest tubes are required and minimizing length of stay; the Harmonic Scalpel will be compared to a control group which uses electrocautery. This study will assess these two different methods to determine if there is a notable decrease in the amount of drainage with one versus the other.
