Safety and feasibility of breast lesion localization using magnetic seeds (Magseed): a multi-centre, open-label cohort study.
PURPOSE: Wire localization has several disadvantages, notably wire migration and difficulty scheduling the procedure close to surgery. Radioactive seed localization overcomes these disadvantages, but implementation is ...
Modelling the radiobiological effect of intraoperative X-ray brachytherapy for breast cancer using an air-filled spherical applicator.
PURPOSE: We present a framework, in which we compare a conventional standard dose of 50 Gy in 25 fractions with accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) using electronic brachytherapy (eBT). We discuss how radiobiological ...
Symmetrisation procedures in breast reconstruction patients constitute a rising workload in our DGH.
INTRODUCTION: In breast cancer patients undergoing reconstructive surgery, achieving symmetry is of considerable importance. The aim of our study was to identify the proportion of breast cancer patients undergoing ...
Current trends in breast surgery.
Breast surgery has evolved significantly over the last decade. This includes developments in pre-operative assessment of patients and surgical options offered to patients. Oncoplastic breast surgery has emerged as a new ...
Axillary treatment for patients with early breast cancer and lymph node metastasis: systematic review protocol.
BACKGROUND: For patients with early breast cancer and lymph node metastasis, axillary treatment is widely recommended. This is either surgical removal of the axillary lymph nodes, or axillary radiotherapy. The rationale ...
Effect of second timed appointments for non-attenders of breast cancer screening in England: a randomised controlled trial.
BACKGROUND: In England, participation in breast cancer screening has been decreasing in the past 10 years, approaching the national minimum standard of 70%. Interventions aimed at improving participation need to be ...
