Groundbreaking Breast Cancer Care Trial
7:01am 12th March 2013
Cornwall is leading the world in developing pioneering breast cancer care.
A two year pain relief trial is starting at Treliske.
A hundred and sixty women will take part.
It will see local aneasthetic given directly through a tube after surgery.
Consultant Iain Brown said: "This little gizmo attaches to the patient's nightie and, if you're comfortable when you wake up after the operation, then you're able to move more freely, do your hair, your make-up, have a cup of tea. Psychologically it's a lot more advantageous.
"By doing this trial properly we will be able to show, once and for all, that this technique does work.
"The benefit will be not just for women in Cornwall but, hopefully, women nationwide and internationally."7:01am 12th March 2013
