UOC BREAST SURGERY

  • Main research lines:
  • Identification of signature responsiveness to innovative drugs
  • Identification of new imaging techniques in senology (CESM)
  • Indocyanine green as a unique method for sentinel lymph node biopsy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
  • Innovative technical application of conservative volume replacement oncoplasty by fascio--adipose propeller flaps set up by microsurgical anatomical dissection
  • Development of personalized algorithm of breast reconstruction after mastectomy (optimize do not compromise)
  • Precision surgery approach to generate living biobank (organoid) from primary breast cancer, metastases, adjacent tissues and benign tumors in order to identify innovative molecular vulnerabilities of metastatic disease and markers of early tumor progression

Collaborative studies ongoing:

  • Prospective validation of TAZ score as a pathological complete response biomarker in patients with luminal B / HER2 positive breast cancer treated with trastuzumab based neo adjuvant therapy TRISKELE Trial
  • Impact of expression of Hippo pathway components in patients with breast cancer treated or candidate for neoadjuvant chemotherapy
