Scrutinizing the evidence for breast
cancer procedures and treatments

    Results from a 2006
    study in Ireland and
    the U.S. suggest
    that patients who
    undergo surgery to
    remove breast or
    prostate cancer
    might be less prone
    to recurrence if they
    are administered
    regional anesthesia
    during their
    procedures, rather
    than general
    anesthesia alone.

    And this approach
    may be more
    effective at
    preventing the
    disease from
    returning and
    spreading than
    treatment with
    chemotherapy after
    the operation, says
    Marcel Durieux, an
    anesthesiologist at
    the U.V.A. Health
    System .
