Overview

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among US women and is the second leading cause of cancer mortality. Mortality rates, however, have been decreasing, primarily due to widespread use of screening, which are detecting cancers at earlier stages and in younger women. In addition, advancements in medical and surgical treatments, as well as reconstructive options, have improved cancer outcomes and improved patients' self-esteem. These improved options for screening and treatment are increasingly more complex requiring more knowledge and skills to use them appropriately.

The Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Summit is a two-day educational activity with an optional one-day hands-on cadaver lab workshop. The Summit will use a case-based interactive format to discuss the many aspects of care for patients with breast cancer from the perspectives of the many medical disciplines involved including imaging, genetics, oncology, breast surgery, plastic surgery, pathology, and radiation. Attendees will be encouraged to provide input, ask questions, and share their experiences in the discussions.

The optional Summit cadaver lab workshop will provide hands-on instruction on some of the innovations in surgical techniques including nipple-sparing mastectomy, oncoplasty reductions, and breast reconstruction using perforator free-flap and single-stage implants. Participants will have the opportunity to perform these techniques on cadavers under the guidance of the expert faculty who will share their experience and knowledge.

Objectives

  • Demonstrate surgical techniques for nipple-sparing mastectomy, oncoplasty reductions, perforator free-flap reconstruction, and single-stage implant reconstruction;
  • Compare and contrast guidelines on the use of mammography to screen for breast cancer, especially in different patient populations;
  • Review literature and best practices for the management of various high-risk lesions from multiple specialists viewpoints;
  • Present viewpoints from multiple medical disciplines regarding appropriate screening, diagnosis, prevention, counseling, and treatment strategies in young patients at high risk for breast cancer;
  • Present options for management of ductal carcinoma in situ in terms of imaging, pathologic assessment, risk stratification for recurrence, breast reconstruction, radiation therapy, and hormonal therapy;
  • List pros and cons regarding controversies in breast cancer management, including neoadjuvant vs adjuvant chemotherapy, survivorship, and reconstruction and postmastectomy radiation;
  • Describe issues affecting breast cancer management in males and in very young and elderly patients;
  • Summarize recent developments in imaging modalities, percutaneous ablation techniques, contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, plastic surgery for lymphedema, chemotherapies in development, and partial breast irradiation.
