Adipose Tissue Transfer for Moderate Breast Cancer Conservative Treatment Sequella (GRATSEC)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

Institut Claudius Regaud Identifier:
First received: December 14, 2009

Last verified: March 2015

This is a phase III randomized multi-center study of equivalence comparing the radiological follow-up for patients benefiting from the correction of the esthetical relapse of the preservative treatment by fatty transfer compared with a simple supervision.

It is planned that 440 patients participate in this study which plans to compare 2 groups of patients: a group of patients which will benefit from the surgical treatment by transfer of fatty tissue and a group of patients under simple supervision.

follow-up consultations are planned in 10 in 45 days post-surgery then at 3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 5 years to look for the expected unwanted effects in relation with the surgery but also to estimate the impact of the fatty transfer on the rate of local and\or from a distance relapse.

During these consultations, the surgeon and the patient will also estimate the cosmetic result of the surgery thanks to a questionnaire of cosmetic evaluation and to standardized photos.

Further study details as provided by Institut Claudius Regaud:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Verify that the disturbances of the radiological follow-up in 1 year will not be more frequent for the patient benefiting from fatty transfer with regard to a simple surveillance. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Estimate the technique on the cosmetic plan : On the quality and on the stability of the result. On the satisfaction of the patient. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Estimate the technique on the carcinological plan : Estimate the rate of local relapse and\or in distance. Estimate the rate of survival of the patients. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 440
Study Start Date: January 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2026
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2026 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Experimental: surgery by fatty tissue transfer Procedure: fatty tissue transfer
It will be proceeded to aspiration of the fat at the level of the natural steatomeries (hip, stomach), then in a transfer of the fat prepared in the breast by following the standardized protocol.
