Management of a periductal stromal tumor in a young woman: Our breast unit experience.

Breast J 2020 Apr 16. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

Breast Unit, Breast Imaging Department of Radiology, University Hospital of Parma, Parma, Italy.

Periductal stromal tumor (PDST) is a rare biphasic tumor of the breast that exhibits low-grade malignancy and intermediate behavior. It is characterized by proliferation of atypical spindle cells surrounding benign mammary ducts and infiltrating adjacent adipose tissue. PDST is distinguished from phyllodes tumor by its lack of leaf-like architecture; however, it is still unclear whether PDST is a separate entity or a certain spectrum of phyllodes tumor. Read More

Luminescent Spectral Rulers for Noninvasive Displacement Measurement through Tissue.

ACS Sens 2020 03 6;5(3):711-718. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

Department of Chemistry, Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina 29634, United States.

A luminescent spectral ruler was developed to measure micrometer to millimeter displacements through tissue. The spectral ruler has two components: a luminescent encoder patterned with alternating stripes of two spectrally distinct luminescent materials and an analyzer mask with periodic transparent windows the same width as the encoder stripes. The analyzer mask is placed over the encoder and held so that only one type of luminescent stripe is visible through the window; sliding the analyzer over the encoder modulates the luminescence spectrum acquired through the analyzer windows, enabling detection of small displacements without imaging.

Predictive factors for the presence of invasive components in patients diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ based on preoperative biopsy.

BMC Cancer 2019 Dec 10;19(1):1201. Epub 2019 Dec 10.

Department of Surgery, Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 29 Saemunan-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Seoul, 03181, South Korea.

Background: In patients diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with needle biopsy before surgery, invasive component (IC) is often found in the postoperative tissue, which results in altered post-surgical care. However, there are no clinically available factors to predict IC, and few MRI studies are available for the detection of IC in DCIS patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate which risk factors can predict IC preoperatively. Read More

Decoding Intratumoral Heterogeneity of Breast Cancer by Multiparametric In Vivo Imaging: A Translational Study.

Cancer Res 2016 09 27;76(18):5512-22. Epub 2016 Jul 27.

Department of Preclinical Imaging and Radiopharmacy, Werner Siemens Imaging Center, Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

Differential diagnosis and therapy of heterogeneous breast tumors poses a major clinical challenge. To address the need for a comprehensive, noninvasive strategy to define the molecular and functional profiles of tumors in vivo, we investigated a novel combination of metabolic PET and diffusion-weighted (DW)-MRI in the polyoma virus middle T antigen transgenic mouse model of breast cancer. The implementation of a voxelwise analysis for the clustering of intra- and intertumoral heterogeneity in this model resulted in a multiparametric profile based on [(18)F]Fluorodeoxyglucose ([(18)F]FDG)-PET and DW-MRI, which identified three distinct tumor phenotypes in vivo, including solid acinar, and solid nodular malignancies as well as cystic hyperplasia.

Preclinical Efficacy of Bevacizumab with CRLX101, an Investigational Nanoparticle-Drug Conjugate, in Treatment of Metastatic Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.

Cancer Res 2016 08 20;76(15):4493-503. Epub 2016 Jun 20.

Biological Sciences Platform, Sunnybrook Research Institute, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Department of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

VEGF pathway-targeting antiangiogenic drugs, such as bevacizumab, when combined with chemotherapy have changed clinical practice for the treatment of a broad spectrum of human cancers. However, adaptive resistance often develops, and one major mechanism is elevated tumor hypoxia and upregulated hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF1α) caused by antiangiogenic treatment. Reduced tumor vessel numbers and function following antiangiogenic therapy may also affect intratumoral delivery of concurrently administered chemotherapy. Read More

Reproducible Volume Restoration and Efficient Long-term Volume Retention after Point-of-care Standardized Cell-enhanced Fat Grafting in Breast Surgery.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2015 Oct 23;3(10):e547. Epub 2015 Oct 23.

Stem Center, Palma de Mallorca, Spain; University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.; and University of the Balearic Isles, Alimentómica, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Unlabelled: Lipoaspirated fat grafts are used to reconstruct volume defects in breast surgery. Although intraoperative treatment decisions are influenced by volume changes observed immediately after grafting, clinical effect and patient satisfaction are dependent on volume retention over time. The study objectives were to determine how immediate breast volume changes correlate to implanted graft volumes, to understand long-term adipose graft volume changes, and to study the "dose" effect of adding autologous stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells to fat grafts on long-term volume retention.

Plastic Surgery, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY, USA; Plastic Surgery, New York Presbyterian Hospital, 156 William Street, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10038, USA.

Breast augmentation remains one of the most commonly performed plastic surgical procedures worldwide; however, Food and Drug Administration clinical trials have suggested that this procedure has a reoperation rate of 14% to 24% after 3 years. Recent literature has proposed that breast augmentation should not only be a surgical procedure but ultimately a surgical process to reduce postoperative complications and enhance patient satisfaction. The process of breast augmentation has been documented to optimize postsurgical outcomes and includes the following 4 steps: patient education, tissue-based planning, refined surgical techniques, and defined postoperative management.

Postsurgical adjuvant tumor therapy by combining anti-angiopoietin-2 and metronomic chemotherapy limits metastatic growth.

Cancer Cell 2014 Dec;26(6):880-895

Division of Vascular Oncology and Metastasis, German Cancer Research Center Heidelberg (DKFZ-ZMBH Alliance), 69121 Heidelberg, Germany; Department of Vascular Biology and Tumor Angiogenesis (CBTM), Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University, 68167 Mannheim, Germany; German Cancer Consortium, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany. Electronic address:

Antiangiogenic tumor therapy has failed in the adjuvant setting. Here we show that inhibition of the Tie2 ligand angiopoietin-2 (Ang2) effectively blocks metastatic growth in preclinical mouse models of postsurgical adjuvant therapy. Ang2 antibody treatment combines well with low-dose metronomic chemotherapy (LDMC) in settings in which maximum-dose chemotherapy does not prove effective. Read More

Imaging response and residual metastatic axillary lymph node disease after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for primary breast cancer.

Ann Surg Oncol 2013 Oct 12;20(10):3199-204. Epub 2013 Jul 12.

Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Background: Although surgical management of the breast after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) may be governed by treatment response, axillary management continues to be determined by stage at presentation. Axillary ultrasound (AUS) with fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is used to detect lymph node (LN) metastases for pre-NAC staging, but imaging assessment of treatment response in the axilla remains undefined. We evaluated post-NAC axillary imaging and surgical pathology to understand how imaging might direct axillary surgery. Read More

Surgically induced SMART syndrome: case report and review of the literature.

World Neurosurg 2014 Jul-Aug;82(1-2):240.e7-12. Epub 2013 Jan 10.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mayo Clinic, College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Strokelike migraine attack after radiation therapy is a recently described clinical entity characterized by transient hemispheric dysfunction manifesting as, but not limited to, visuospatial deficits, confusion, hemisensory deficits, hemiparesis, aphasia, seizures, and, most prominently, headache in patients with a history of remote external beam radiation therapy to the brain. The radiographic hallmark on magnetic resonance imaging is the presence of transient, diffuse, unilateral gadolinium enhancement of the cortex with white matter sparing, usually corresponding to the previous radiation field.

Case Description: We present a case of strokelike migraine attacks after radiation therapy syndrome diagnosed immediately following a craniotomy and temporal lobectomy for recurrent metastatic tumor resection after prior gamma knife radiosurgery and whole-brain radiation therapy. Read More
