Prehabilitation benefits among patients undergoing various oncological surgeries have been demonstrated. However, the effects of presurgical exercise and fitness on postoperative ipsilateral upper extremity recovery outcomes in patients with breast cancer surgery are less evident. A systematic review was performed to assess the effects of preoperative exercise and fitness on postmastectomy recovery. Systematic literature search was performed in 12 electronic databases. Study eligibility was… Expand
Effect of physical activity levels on oncological breast surgery recovery: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Women who practice physical activity recover better from BC surgery than sedentary women, and the higher the intensity and frequency of training, the better the results. Expand

TLDR
PT prehab program improved pre-operative measures on pain, posture, joint mobility, muscle strength, and function on a patient who had been scheduled for rTSR surgery. Expand
The Impact of Therapeutic Exercises on the Quality of Life and Shoulder Range of Motion in Women After a Mastectomy, an RCT.
TLDR
In a middle-income country, one-to-one education provided by a nurse, which included demonstrations, back demonstrations, and weekly phone calls had a positive impact on women's shoulder range of motion and quality of life. Expand
Changes in Spine Alignment and Postural Balance After Breast Cancer Surgery: A Rehabilitative Point of View
TLDR
Investigating the alterations post-breast cancer surgery of the spine alignment associated to the balance not reported by the noninvasive instrumentation found a spine's misalignment present both on the sagittal plane and on the coronal and frontal plane is associated with greater energy expenditure for the postural balance control. Expand
The feasibility of prehabilitation as part of the breast cancer treatment pathway.
TLDR
Multi-modal prehabilitation is a feasible intervention and Logistical challenges need to be addressed to improve engagement and work on a thorough cost-benefit analysis is also required. Expand
The Impact of Exercise and Nutrition as Part of a Person-Centered Approach to Prehabilitation in Patients with Bladder Cancer.
TLDR
Evidence is emerging around the role of multidisciplinary interventions in the form of exercise, nutritional input, and holistic supportive care to improve physical and psychological well-being prior to major surgery. Expand
Prehabilitation programs for cancer patients: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (protocol)
TLDR
This systematic review aims to determine the benefits and harms of prehabilitation programs, mainly composed of physical exercise, compared with standard care for cancer patients, and to assist health care providers, patients, decision-makers, and international organizations to make informed decisions.
