EndoPredict versus uPA/PAI-1 in breast cancer: Comparison of markers and association with clinicopathological parameters.

Breast J 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Institute of Pathology, Universitätsklinikum Augsburg, Augsburg, Germany.

We retrospectively investigated concordance of EndoPredict (EPclin) with urokinase plasminogen activator and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (uPA/PAI-1) in 72 breast cancer patients and compared the results with grading, molecular subtype and chemotherapy recommendation. Compared to uPA/PAI-1, EPclin proved to be more conservative concerning correlation with clinicopathological parameters and was significantly associated with the recommendation of adjuvant chemotherapy.

Follow-up outcomes of benign vascular lesions of breast diagnosed on core needle biopsy: A study of 117 cases.

Breast J 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Pathology, Magee-Womens Hospital of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Benign vascular lesions of breast are uncommon findings on core biopsy and surgical excision has been recommended to rule out a more serious lesion. However, a recent study suggested that excision may be spared for vascular lesion without atypia. The aim of this study was to assess the follow-up outcomes in lesions yielding benign vascular lesions on core biopsy. Read More

Association between socioeconomic factors and outcomes in breast cancer.

Breast J 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Surgery, BreastCare Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: Persistent socioeconomic disparities are evident in the delivery of health care. Despite previous research into health disparities, the extent of the effect of economic inequalities in the management of breast cancer is not well understood. The purpose of our study is to perform a national assessment of the impact of economic factors on key aspects of breast cancer management. Read More

Feasibility of Masood's cytological index for screening breast lesions in low resource setting.

Breast J 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Pathology, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana, India.

Fine needle aspiration cytology has long been an accepted diagnostic modality in combination with physical examination and mammography to investigate breast lesions. In the present era, more proficient methods such as stereotactic mammographically guided breast biopsy is the preferred choice, however, in low resource setting, FNAC still remains the most cost effective and sampling modality to diagnose breast cancer. With the intention to evaluate the efficacy and limitations of FNAC in evaluation of breast lesions in low resource setting, we employed the Masood's cytological staging system to stratify the breast lesions and correlate them with histopathology wherever possible.

Center for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer, Center for Integrated Oncology (CIO), Medical Faculty, University Hospital Cologne, Cologne, Germany.

The detection of deleterious germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 considerably influences the clinical management of healthy and diseased carriers. Therefore, the identification of persons at risk who could uptake genetic counseling and testing is pivotal. We developed a checklist with validated criteria to improve the identification, and prospectively evaluate the incidence, of familial cancer history in 5091 breast cancer patients. Read More

Accelerated partial breast irradiation-Redefining the treatment target for women with early stage breast cancer.

Breast J 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

21st Century Oncology, Michigan Healthcare Professionals, Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Following breast conserving surgery, the standard of care has been to deliver adjuvant radiation therapy directed to the whole breast (WBI) over a period of 3-7 weeks. Over the past decade, increasing data have supported the concept that treatment to the whole breast may not be required in selected patients, allowing for the emergence of partial breast irradiation (PBI). Multiple randomized trials with 5-10 years of follow-up have been published documenting the safety and efficacy associated with PBI using multiple techniques. Read More

Papillary and sclerosing lesions of the breast detected and biopsied by MRI: Clinical management, upgrade rate, and association with apocrine metaplasia.

Breast J 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, and Geisel School of Medicine, Hanover, New Hampshire.

Benign papillary and sclerosing lesions of the breast (intraductal papillomas, complex sclerosing lesions, radial scars) are considered high-risk lesions due to the potential for upgrade to carcinoma on subsequent surgical excision. Optimal clinical management of such lesions remains unclear due to variable reported upgrade rates. Apocrine metaplasia is a common finding in breast tissue and its role in MRI enhancing lesions is increasingly being recognized. Read More

Purpose: Reduction mammaplasty is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Previous studies demonstrated that most plastic surgeons do not require preoperative mammography prior to reduction mammaplasty. The incidental discovery of malignant or high-risk lesions in breast reduction specimens may preclude the possibility of breast-conserving surgery. Read More
