Abstract

Introduction For many women with breast cancer, breast conserving therapy (BCT) is preferable to total mastectomy because BCT produces survival rates equivalent to those after total mastectomy while preserving the breast. However the effect of breast conservation therapy on aesthetic outcome is not minimal and those patients may benefit from reconstructive consultation. Here, we present a simple and safe procedure with shortened hospital stay for centers where plastic specialty services are not available. Methods It was a prospective study. Twenty one women with breast cancer underwent breast-conserving surgery followed by injection of 200-400 cc of normal saline into the cavity. At 6 months follow up, all patients were evaluated of asymmetry, deformities, satisfying with the end result and requesting or requiring further cosmetic surgery. Results Twenty one patients were enrolled, aged 23-59 years. All margins were negative on post operative pathologic study. At 6 months follow up, all patients had some degree of asymmetry, but were satisfied with the result; none requested plastic surgery. Conclusion Saline injection into the cavity is a safe and quick technique to preserve breast contour for patients who do not access onco-plastic surgery. Key words: breast cancer, breast conserving therapy, saline injection
