Usefulness of MRI of microcalcification lesions to determine the indication for stereotactic mammotome biopsy.
Anticancer Res.
PUBLISHED: 11-05-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
With the recent rise in mammography (MMG) screenings there has been an increase in the identification of microcalcifications without lump. Therefore, a vacuum-assisted needle biopsy under stereotactic guidance (ST-MTB) is frequently performed for diagnosis. However, ST-MTB is a highly invasive examination. In this study, we investigated the effectiveness of utilizing contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to differentiate between benign and malignant category 3 (C3) calcifications.

The Safety of Concentrated Trastuzumab in 100 ml of Saline Solution for Administration to Patients with HER2-Positive Breast Cancer: A Phase 1 Study.
Chemotherapy
PUBLISHED: 07-03-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Background: It is recommended that administration of trastuzumab should be carried out in a volume of 250 ml of saline solution over 90 min. Since 2011, recommendations have allowed a shortening of the administration time to 30 min at the second administration. However, the volume to be administered is still 250 ml. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety of trastuzumab administered in 100 ml of saline solution over 30 min. Methods: This study enrolled patients with HER2-positive breast cancer. Three dose levels of trastuzumab, each in 100 ml of saline solution, were used (2, 6 and 8 mg/kg). The primary end point was the determination of safety. Results: Nine patients were enrolled. Since no adverse events were observed, the 8 mg/kg/100 ml saline solution dose level was the recommended dose. Conclusions: A 30-min administration of trastuzumab in 100 ml of saline solution is safe in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer. © 2014 S. Karger AG, Basel.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy after cesarean: a case report and published work review of pregnancy-related cases.

Hide Abstract
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) primarily affects postmenopausal women and is an important differential diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome. We describe a rare case of post-partum TCM, and present a published work review of the cases of pregnancy-associated TCM. A 24-year-old Japanese woman pregnant with twins suffered from premature membrane rupture at 31 gestational weeks. Following emergency cesarean delivery, she complained of sudden dyspnea. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed an inverted Takotsubo pattern (ejection fraction, 46%). On post-delivery day 8, wall motion abnormalities subsided, and she was discharged on post-delivery day 16. We reviewed 18 relevant cases of peripartum TCM from the published work. Among them, 16 cases were post-partum and two cases occurred during pregnancy. Most women (81%) underwent cesarean delivery, and the first symptoms of TCM appeared during surgery in 38% of the cases. The dominant symptoms were chest pain (44%) and dyspnea (28%). Most cases (94%) exhibited electrocardiogram abnormalities, including ST changes and T-wave inversion. Serum levels of cardiac enzymes were abnormally high in 92% of the cases. Repeated echocardiography documented normalized left ventricular systolic function within 6 months in all cases. This case and review emphasize that TCM may be concealed in post-partum women by symptoms undistinguishable from acute coronary syndrome, peripartum cardiomyopathy or pulmonary thromboembolism, and that echocardiography may be a useful tool to distinguish them.

[Efficacy and safety of lidocaine hydrochloride jelly for the treatment of pain caused by breast cancer metastases to the skin].

Hide Abstract
Breast cancer metastases to the skin significantly decrease quality of life(QOL) due to bleeding or dull pain. However, an effective treatment has not yet been established. In this study, we achieved an effective result by using lidocaine hydrochloride jelly[Xylocaine jelly(XJ)] when patients complained of temporarily increased dull pain. For the pain treatment for 5 women who developed the skin metastases of breast cancer after mastectomy, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) were used. In cases with defective control, both NSAIDs and opioids were used. However, it was difficult to control temporarily increased dull pain. Therefore, we applied 5 g XJ to the area of recurrence when the patients complained of increasing dull pain. This treatment rapidly reduced the pain and it was possible to reduce the use of analgesics and reduce side effects. After 5 g XJ was applied to the patients, their level of lidocaine in blood was reduced to within the safe zone, and no undesirable effects were observed. Treatment with XJ was easy to perform and was safe for the control of dull pain due to skin metastases of breast cancer. In conclusion, we believe that treatment with XJ is effective for dull pain.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
