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 ...


Targeted Pain Coping Skills Training (PCST) for Prevention and Treatment of Persistent Post-Mastectomy Pain

Persistent pain following breast cancer surgery is increasingly being recognized as an important clinical and public health issue due to the large numbers of women affected, the negative impact that persistent pain has on emotional and physical functioning, and its financial cost. Most of the 230,000 women that are expected ...

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) ...


PREvention of Post-mastectomy LYMphoceles by PAdding

Lymphoceles, or seromas, are the most frequent complication following mastectomy and are associated or not with axillary dissection occurring in 10 to 90% of cases. It is defined as the presence of a palpable post operative serous accumulation that is bothersome for the patient and requires a puncture and drainage ...

Phase N/A

Levobupivacaine Prolonged Wound Infusion for Postoperative Pain Relief After Breast Surgery

The aim of the study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of long term (14 days) wound infusion with levobupivacaine in patients with breast cancer undergoing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction: this is a double blind, randomized, parallel group study. The study moves from the concept that nociceptive stimulus last ...


Robot Assisted Mastectomy Via Axillary Way With Areola Conservation and Immediate Reconstruction

The objective of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of a mastectomy with conservation of the areola using axillary way only with the Da Vinci Robot Xi and immediate breast reconstruction using prosthesis. The interest is to avoid scars on the breast. The scars are limited to the armpit ...


PEMF and PEC Blocks in Mastectomy Reconstruction Patients

Multifunctional Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Predicting Breast Lesions in Women Undergoing Mastectomy for Breast Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - To determine the accuracy of multifunctional magnetic resonance (MR) in detecting, localizing, and characterizing satellite lesions in relation to an index breast tumor in order to improve definition of clinical target volume after local excision. OUTLINE: Patients receive an injection of gadolinium chelate and undergo multifunctional magnetic resonance ...

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 ...
