The purpose of this study is to learn whether there are differences in the outcome between placing the tissue expander above or below the chest muscle in women having immediate breast reconstruction following a mastectomy The study will evaluate pain, wellbeing, and overall satisfaction with reconstruction. A secondary purpose is to learn whether there are differences in complications and costs between the two locations.
The purpose of this registry is to collect and maintain samples of breast tissue from women and men undergoing surgery for a breast related concern at Mayo Clinic Rochester, to create a biospecimen resource for the study of benign and cancerous breast conditions.
Researchers at Mayo Clinic are developing a Biobank of adult stem cell-rich breast organoids, a new research resource to facilitate normal and cancer stem cell research. Subjects in the Biobank will provide samples of excess breast tissue, complete a health questionnaire, and allow access to medical records now and in the future. The Biobank serves as a library for researchers; instead of having to look for volunteers for each new project, researchers can use samples from the Biobank as well as share information already collected.

This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether comprehensive radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with breast cancer.
Plan to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine the feasibility, benefits and educational impact of using simulation for patient education (SimEd) for post-mastectomy wound and drain care, compared to current patient education practice (StdEd). This study also seeks to derive and validate a skills assessment tool specifically developed to evaluate skills acquired during the education process and compare the results of SimEd vs StdEd; we also plan to relate the scores of our assessment tool to a validated instrument that measures readiness for patient dismissal and compare their results in both study arms.
