Objective: To determine the efficacy of low pressure vs high vacuum suction drains after modified radical mastectomy
in terms of earlier removal and its impact on duration of hospital stay.
The final diagnosis of left modified radical mastectomy
specimen was "Metaplastic SCC, well-differentiated", with intraductal papillary carcinoma (less than 10%).
The selected patients had been treated thereafter in form of different modalities like, (a) simple analgesic (b) excision biopsy (c) modified radical mastectomy

As presented in results, the most used surgical technique was modified radical mastectomy
(80.4%), while lumpectomy or breast conserving therapy accounted for only 13.1% of all surgeries which is lower compared to Western countries.14,15
The prospective observational study consisted of 90 normotensive consented adult female patients aged 24-60 years of ASA physical status I and II undergoing Modified Radical Mastectomy
for CA Breast under general anaesthesia.
Awareness among the population and early detection of breast malignancies has resulted in increased surgical interventions like lumpectomy, breast conservation therapy, modified radical mastectomy
Of all the 68 patients who underwent modified radical mastectomy
with axillary clearance, histological examination revealed 82.35% to be invasive ductal carcinoma, 11.76% to be lobular carcinoma and 5.88% to be medullary carcinoma with 66.17% tumours in T2 stage and 33.82% tumours in T1 stage.
A prospective observational study was undertaken in 30 female patients of carcinoma breast who underwent modified radical mastectomy
following tissue diagnosis by fine needle aspiration cytology or Tru-cut biopsy.
Based on the diagnosis, patients underwent modified radical mastectomy
with axillary clearance and immunohistochemical analysis to determine Estrogen (ER) and Progesterone Receptor (PR) and HER2 status.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of 506 patients who underwent modified radical mastectomy
for breast cancer in the department of surgical oncology of our Institute between January 2006 to December 2009.
It has been demonstrated that radical mastectomy increases seroma formation compared with that of simple mastectomy, [14, 15] but the association is inconclusive when radical mastectomy is compared with modified radical mastectomy
