Immediate Reconstruction Swing Room Scheduling Reduces Wait Times to Surgery and Increases Breast Reconstruction Rates.

Ann Surg Oncol 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Surgery, Providence Breast Center, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Background: Despite benefits in quality of life, patient satisfaction, overall healthcare costs, and number of surgeries, historically fewer than 30% of patients undergo immediate breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer. A paucity of qualified oncologic and plastic surgeons coupled with inefficient use of operating room (OR) resources presents challenges in offering immediate breast reconstruction in a timely manner. To address these challenges, an immediate reconstruction swing room (IRSW) program was developed. Read More

A non-toxic approach for treatment of breast cancer and its metastases: capecitabine enhanced photodynamic therapy in a murine breast tumor model.

J Cancer Metastasis Treat 2019 24;5. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

Aim: Breast cancer (BCA) in women is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity; distant metastases occur in ~40% of cases. Here, as an alternative to ionizing radiation therapy and chemotherapy and their associated side effects, we explored a new combination approach using capecitabine (CPBN) and aminolevulinate-based photodynamic therapy (PDT). We had previously developed a combination PDT approach in which 5-fluorouracil (5FU), a differentiation-promoting agent, increases the levels of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in cancer cells when given as a neoadjuvant prior to aminolevulinic acid (ALA).

Quantitative assessment and risk factors for chest wall deformity resulting from tissue expansion for breast reconstruction.

Breast Cancer 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Plastic Surgery, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, 3-39-22, Showa-machi, Maebashi, Gunma, 371-8511, Japan.

Background: Chest wall deformity after tissue expansion for breast reconstruction is less recognized than complications such as infection, hematoma, skin necrosis and capsular contracture. However, the condition should not be discounted because pain, rib fracture and dyspnea may occur in severe cases. The aim of this study is to evaluate the extent of chest wall deformity quantitatively using computed tomography (CT) and to identify risk factors for this condition after tissue expansion.

Adipose stem cell crosstalk with chemo-residual breast cancer cells: implications for tumor recurrence.

Breast Cancer Res Treat 2018 Dec 29. Epub 2018 Dec 29.

Department of Pathology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA.

Purpose: Most triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients exhibit an incomplete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, resulting in chemo-residual tumor cells that drive tumor recurrence and patient mortality. Accordingly, strategies for eliminating chemo-residual tumor cells are urgently needed. Although stromal cells contribute to tumor cell invasion, to date, their ability to influence chemo-residual tumor cell behavior has not been examined. Read More
