Comment "Benefit of single-injection Depot Progesterone before surgery in node positive breast cancer patients" - Raj Badwe, Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India "This is the first randomized evidence suggesting benefit of short-term peri-operative hormone therapy (progesterone) in DFS and OS in node positive breast cancer. The results not only suggest an easily implementable cost-effective intervention in routine clinical practice but also offers some biological insights about when does metastases set in? and how modulation of events at the time of surgery affects a chronic disease? In absence of side effects and low cost of intervention this would be the most effective intervention for the developing world as well as cash strapped health care systems globally. The results need to be reproduced in other parts of the world" (Comment on: Badwe R et al.: "Single-Injection Depot Progesterone Before Surgery and Survival in Women With Operable Breast Cancer: A Randomized Controlled Trial", J Clin Oncol. 2011 Jul 20;29 (21):2845-51) Fragments of History Richard Volkmann, "Beitrage zur Chirurgie", Leipzig, Germany (1875): “I make it a rule never to do a partial amputation for cancer of the breast, but remove the entire breast even for the smallest tumors, and at the same time I take away a liberal piece of skin. The skin defect is, of course, very great when one operates in this manner, and the wound, in consequence, requires a long time for healing. Furthermore, in making the lower incision I cut right down to the pectoralis muscle and clean its fibres, as I would for a class-room dissection, carrying the knife parallel with the muscular fasciculi and penetrating into their interstices. The fascia of the muscle is,accordingly, entirely removed. I was led to adopt this procedure because, on microscopical examination, I repeatedly found when I had not expected it that the fascia was already carcinomatous,whereas the muscle was certainly not involved. (…). It seems to me, therefore, that the fascia serves for a time as a barrier, and is able to bring to a halt the spreading growth of the carcinoma" Calendar of Events Breast Cancer Symposium 2011, September 8-10, 2011, San Francisco, California 7th Meet the Professor.
