Breast Cancer - Oncoplastic Surgery and Prophylactic Mastectomy

Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in women. It affects about one in eight women, which shows how relevant the topic is. Since Angelina Jolie’s article in the New York Times, the topic has also received a lot of media attention and, consequently, raised women’s awareness. In her article A. Jolie reports about the procedure she underwent, a prophylactic mastectomy. In this episode, we will compare the prophylactic mastectomy to the breast-conserving surgery.

Thyroid Surgery

Nuclear medicine specialists, endocrinologists, general practitioners and surgeons: When it comes to the thyroid gland interdisciplinary cooperation is essential. Especially the neck’s complex anatomy makes it a sensitive area, not least because important nerve fibres, e.g. the recurrent laryngeal nerve, are in close proximity to the thyroid. Surgery in that region demands highly precise depiction and functional testing and promises to be a fascinating episode!

Vestibular Schwannoma - Neurosurgical Tumor Resection
The Vestibular Schwannoma is a benign tumour of the vestibulocochlear nerve’s Schwann cells. Symptoms like sudden deafness, tinnitus, and lightheadedness often occur when the tumour has already grown into the cranial fossa. Because of its close proximity to the brain and the cranial nerves, surgeons need to use especially precise surgical techniques.
