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 ...


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 ...


Web-Based Decision Aid in Improving Informed Decisions in Patients With Stage 0-IIIA Breast Cancer Considering Contralateral Prophylactic Mastectomy

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To develop a feasible web-based decision aid (DA). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To provide preliminary data on the impact of the contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM)-DA on preparedness to make the CPM decision, decisional conflict, CPM knowledge, psychosocial factors, perceived risk for cancer in the healthy/breast/metastatic disease, cancer recurrence/metastasis ...

Phase N/A

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) ...


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. ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Perioperative Opioid Consumption Following Pectoral Nerve Block for Breast Cancer Surgery

After induction of general anesthesia with propofol, remifentanil and succinylcholine, the patients will be divided either in the pectoral block group or the control group (sham block). Both groups will receive the same perioperative and postoperative anesthetic protocol. The investigator in charge of the patient will leave the operative room ...

Phase N/A

Shave Margins vs. Standard Partial Mastectomy in Breast Cancer Patients

Some authors have investigated, in a retrospective fashion, the use of routine shave margins, where surgeons routinely take additional margins at the time of the initial partial mastectomy as a means of obtaining negative margins. While these retrospective studies have found that positive margin rates declined using this technique, opponents ...


Does a Single Steroid Injection Reduce the Formation of Postmastectomy Seroma

Background Seroma formation is a common problem after mastectomy. The incidence various between 30% to 92%. It is often an ongoing problem after removal of the suction drain, and repeated skin puncture is necessary to remove the seroma. In addition to many ambulatory visits this also leads to an increased ...


Bupivacaine vs Placebo for Unilateral Mastectomy Surgical Site Post-operative Pain Control

The purpose of this study is to compare using bupivacaine (a numbing medicine) along with the usual medications for post-operative pain control to using the usual medications for post-operative pain control alone. The addition of bupivacaine to the usual pain medications could better manage pain immediately after surgery. This study ...


Post Mastectomy Hypofractionated Radiotherapy in High Risk Breast Cancer

Eligible breast cancer patients with mastectomy and axillary dissection are divided into two groups: conventional fractionated (CF) radiotherapy of 50 Gray (GY) in 25 fractions within 5 weeks to ipsilateral chest wall and supraclavicular nodal region, and hypofractionated (HF) radiotherapy of 43.5 Gray (GY) in 15 fractions within 3 weeks ...
