PRO Editor Podcast – December 2021
Editor-in-Chief, Robert Amdur, MD, discusses three Practice Pearls from the most recent PROshot article: Adjuvant radiation halves the rate of ipsilateral breast recurrences at 10 and 15 years with minimal late toxicity in women with good-risk ductal carcinoma in situ; women with early-stage vulvar cancer and sentinel lymph node micrometastases (≤2 mm) can safely forgo ipsilateral completion lymph node dissection to reduce morbidity, but those with macrometastases cannot; and prophylactic cranial irradiation using hippocampal avoidance for SCLC helps preserve short-term memory.
Guidelines and Practice Documents Clinical practice statements are evidence based or consensus based documents developed to help health care professionals and patients make decisions about screening, prevention or treatment of a specific health condition, promoting high quality and appropriate care.
