The purpose of this clinical trial is to study patients with positive nodes before chemotherapy who become negative after chemotherapy to see1) if, after lumpectomy (surgery to remove cancer), radiation to the breast and lymph nodes will be better than radiation only to the breast at keeping cancer from returning, ...

Phase N/A

Application Of Autologous Blood Products During Modified Radical Mastectomy

A frequent complication of mastectomy is seroma formation with rates in the literature reported at 3-50%. Although seroma formation can be considered more of a nuisance than a serious complication, the presence of seroma can lead to wound infection, skin flap necrosis, wound dehiscence, nerve injury, and lymphedema in mastectomy ...

Seroma Reduction After Mastectomy

INTRODUCTION AND RATIONALE Seroma formation is a common side effect after surgery for breast cancer, with an incidence of 3% to 85%. Seroma is a collection of serous fluid that contains blood plasma and/ or lymph fluid. Some surgeons regard seroma formation as a necessary evil after breast cancer surgery. ...

Post-Mastectomy Surveillance to Detect Recurrence in Breast Cancer Patients

The investigator hypothesizes that surgeon-directed ultrasound is a feasible, accurate, and cost-effective strategy for local recurrence surveillance in breast cancer patients after mastectomy. Toward examining these hypotheses, the investigators propose the following Specific Aims: Aim I: To determine the number of breast cancer recurrences following mastectomy detected by surgeon-performed ultrasound. ...

Intraoperative Ketamine on Chronic Pain After Mastectomy

Procedures Patients will be approached at the preadmission clinic or in the general ward before operation. The analgesic methods will be explained and s/he will be recruited into the study if s/he agrees. The patient will be randomized into one of three groups. The patients in the first group (C) ...

Therapeutic Nipple Sparing Mastectomy.

This is a phase III, multicentric, single arm study with a sequential design using the exact conditional Poisson test. The primary objective of this prospective study is to evaluate whether selected breast carcinoma patients could be treated with nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) with an acceptable low local recurrence rates. 450 ...

Prediction of Persistent Post-Mastectomy Pain

This study is a prospective observational study which phenotypes individuals' baseline pain, psychosocial and psychophysical characteristics, then measures perioperative and long-term changes to examine the relationship of psychophysical and psychosocial processing to persistent post-mastectomy pain development . Preoperative Psychophysical assessment: Pressure pain testing methods: After giving informed consent, the PI ...

Pre-op Paravertebral Blocks to Decrease Post-op Pain Following Mastectomy With Immediate TE Reconstruction

This double-blind, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing patient-reported pain and pain medication/narcotic use between patients randomized to treatment (ropivacaine) or placebo (saline) delivered via paravertebral block to the mastectomy site. Candidates will have chosen to have a mastectomy on one side immediately followed with tissue expander placement breast reconstruction. Patients ...
