Localization of Intercostal Perforating Vessels Reduces Wound Complications From Nipple Sparing Mastectomy

Nipple Sparing Mastectomy (NSM) has been increasingly utilized over the last ten years for risk-reducing surgery and surgical treatment for breast cancer. The oncologic safety has been well established in multiple studies in appropriately selected individuals. Additionally, rates of wound complications and risk factors for wound problems are well documented. ...

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.

Role of Transcrainal Direct Current Brain Stimulation in Acute and Chronic Post-mastectomy Pain Management

New analgesic strategies are needed that can be used adjunctively to existing strategies with the potential to reduce reliance on opioid analgesia. Several novel brain stimulation technologies including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are beginning to demonstrate promise as treatments for a variety of pain conditions. Electricity has no metabolite ...

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 ...
