  Purpose

The aim of this study is to assess the outcomes of breast conserving therapy operation depending on the type of surgical tool used: classic electrocoagulation with higher operative temperatures and high frequency electrocoagulation with lower operative temperatures. The investigators would assess the pain levels, length and amount of the lymphatic secretion as well as quality of life following breast conserving surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain Control [ Time Frame: From the day before surgery up to 12 weeks (+/-2days) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain assessment would be performed using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) at the days 1-5, 10 (+/- 2), 20 (+/- 2), 30 (+/- 2), and 12 weeks (+/- 2 days). SF - MPQ questionnaire would be filled in on admission, 10th (+/- 2) post-operative day and 12 weeks (+/- 2 days)after surgery.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life (QoL) [ Time Frame: From the day before surgery up to 12 weeks (+/-2days) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pre-operative assessment of QoL would be performed by psychologist using questionnaires: CISS, HADS - M, Eysencka. Postoperative assessment of QoL would be performed using QLQ C30 and QLQ BR 23 questionnaires 12 weeks (+/- 2 days)after surgery

  • Length of lymphatic secretion [ Time Frame: From the day before surgery up to 12 weeks (+/-2days) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of days of lymphatic secretion would be assessed.

  • Amount of lymphatic secretion [ Time Frame: From the day before surgery up to 12 weeks (+/-2days) after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Amount of lymphatic secretion would be measured until it stops on daily basis.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Classic electrocoagulation
Arm of the study where the classic low-frequency electrocoagulation is used during the operation
Device: classic v high-frequency electrocoagulation
During the BCT with SLND the investigators would use two types of electrocoagulation. The steps of the operation would remain the same in both arms, nevertheless the tool used would vary.
Other Name: Ellmann
Experimental: High Frequency electrocoagulation
Arm of the study where the tested high-frequency electrocoagulation is used during the operation
Device: classic v high-frequency electrocoagulation
During the BCT with SLND the investigators would use two types of electrocoagulation. The steps of the operation would remain the same in both arms, nevertheless the tool used would vary.
Other Name: Ellmann
