Surgery still has a pivotal role in the management of breast cancer, even though recent
advances in oncology are trending towards more conservative techniques followed by
chemotherapy.The consensus development conference on the treatment of breast cancer in
1979 stated that modified radical mastectomy was the standard of treatment for stage 1 and 2
disease. 60 patients of either sex between age group 30 to 60 years undergoing elective
Modified Radical Mastectomywere divided into two groups of 30 patients each randomly
who fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria. In this study, When we look closer, we
could see that, despite of being statistically significant, the VAS and VRS scores at initial
intervals (1hr, 4hrs) were low in group A when compared to group B. At 8 hours and, there
was a marked increase in VAS and VRS score in group B and thereafter it was akin in two
groups.
