BACKGROUND Significant morbidity such as pain, paresthesia, and arm stiffness has often been associated with axillary dissection for breast cancer. We report our experience of 30 patients with stage I and II invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast who underwent laparoscopic-assisted axillary dissection together with segmental mastectomy. METHODS Tumours(More)
This is an initial report of a new method of axillary dissection via a periareolar incision and an 8 mm incision in the axilla with the da Vinci Surgical System. The 10x magnification and three-dimensional image, together with the versatility and precision of the robotic telemanipulators, has enabled us to perform nerve-sparing axillary dissection in four(More)
19 Background: The risk of locoregional recurrence is of concern for women following breast cancer surgery. We report a single surgeon's experience of locoregional lymphatic recurrence following axillary dissection (AD) in women with breast cancer. METHODS The aim of this study is to identify risk factors for locoregional lymphatic recurrence in women who(More)
227 Background: Recent advances in pluripotent stem cell biology offer patient-specific disease models to investigate in vitro mechanisms of tumorigenesis. Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells were originally derived by reprogramming of human dermal fibroblasts through ectopic expression of pluripotency-associated transcription factors. A limitation to the(More)
