Accelerated partial breast irradiation can be applied by means of different techniques. It <br />offers an opportunity for reducing the treatment duration considerably and harbours the <br />potential for less exposure of healthy tissue to higher radiation doses. However, evidence <br />issued from randomized trials is limited. European and American experts call our attention <br />to the potential dangers of widespread implementation of these techniques without any <br />long-term data on outcome and ask for complete information of patients on the potential <br />hazards and risks if accelerated partial breast irradiation is used instead of whole breast <br />irradiation.

Objective: Genetic disorders of calcium metabolism arise in a familial or sporadic setting. The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) plays a key role in maintaining calcium homeostasis and study of the CASR gene can be clinically useful in determining etiology and appropriate therapeutic approaches. We report two cases of novel CASR gene mutations that illustrate the varying clinical presentations and discuss these in terms of the current understanding of CaSR function. Patients and Methods: A 16 yr-old patient had mild hypercalcemia associated with low-normal urinary calcium excretion and normal-to-high parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. Because of negative family history, familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) was originally excluded. The second patient was a 54 yr-old man with symptomatic hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, low PTH, and mild hypercalciuria. Familial investigation revealed the same phenotype in the patient's sister. The coding region of the CaSR gene was sequenced in both probands and their available first-degree relatives. Results: The first patient had a novel heterozygous inactivating CASR mutation in exon 4, which predicted a p.A423K change; genetic analysis was negative in the parents. The second patient had a novel heterozygous activating CASR mutation in exon 6, which predicted a p.E556K change; the affected sister of the proband was also positive. Conclusions: We reported two novel heterozygous mutations of the CASR gene, an inactivating mutation in exon 4 and the first activating mutation reported to date in exon 6. These cases illustrate the importance of genetic testing of CASR gene to aid correct diagnosis and to assist in clinical management. [less ▲]

Oncoplastic surgery combines large lumpectomy and defect remodeling by different plastic surgery methods. These procedures improve the cosmetic result after partial mastectomy and widens the possibilities for conservative treatment. Different techniques are used from simple glandular remodeling to more difficult techniques for breast plasties with or without simultaneous controlateral symetrisation procedure. The surgical option depends especially on the ratio between the volume of the tumor and the volume of the breast and the position of the tumor. This more effective conservative treatment facilitates also postoperative radiotherapy, reduces the sequellae and the psychological impact of breast cancer treatment. [less ▲]

L'objectif de l'hormonothérapie adjuvante dans le cancer du sein est d'atteindre en pratique quotidiennee, une efficacité comparable à celle obtenue au cours des études cliniques. Malgré l'efficacité démontrée de l'hormonothérapie, la compliance constitue un défi majeur et un problème multidimensionnel. Une meilleure compréhension des raisons de cette non-compliance aiderait à mieux identifier les patientes à risque et à développer des interventions capables d'améliorer l'adhésion à l'hormonothérapie adjuvante.C'est dans ce but que nous avons entrepris une revue de la littérature des six dernières années (Pub Med 2003-2006).

About 9,500 new breast cancers are diagnosed in Belgium every year. Improvement of our knowledge of altered molecular events leading to the proliferation of tumor cells has resulted in the development of targeted therapies in subgroups of cancers. One of the first validation of targeted therapy is the anti-HER-2 monoclonal antibody trastuzumab (Herceptin) in patients with overexpression of human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2) occurring in 20 to 25% of invasive breast carcinoma. Trastuzumab binds the extracellular juxtamembrane domain and is only active in tumor with HER2 gene amplification detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The results from randomized trials have rapidly lead to the approvement of the drug in the metastatic and then in the adjuvant setting. Another targeted therapy, also approved in the treatment of breast cancer, is the monoclonal antibody bevacizumab with an anti-VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) activity. We will review the benefit of these targeted therapies in breast cancer and their role in the treatment of breast cancer. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 65-year-old man admitted for an upper-GI hemorrhage. A CT scan performed with vascular reconstructions demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm of the left gastric artery. Proximal vascular control of the celiac axis was obtained by balloon occlusion with a Fogarty balloon inserted retrograde via the femoral artery: the pseudoaneurysm was then successfully controlled with direct suture.

The authors discuss the potential influence of obesity surgery on the risk of cancer, focusing on the upper GI tract directly affected by operations. There is currently no substantiation for an increased risk of cancer after bariatric surgery, because there are only about 25 reports of subsequent cancer of the esophagus and the stomach. However, this review emphasizes the need to detect potential precancerous conditions before surgery. Candidates for postoperative endoscopic surveillance may include patients >15 years after gastric surgery, but also patients symptomatic for gastroesophageal reflux disease in whom a high incidence of Barrett's metaplasia has been reported. The greatest concern is a delay in diagnosis from inadequate investigation due to mistaking serious upper GI symptoms as a consequence of the past operation. [less ▲]
