Brief Summary:

The emergence of cognitive disorders after surgery under general anesthesia (GA) is the second leading cause of patient complaints (after dental debris caused by intubation techniques). These cognitive disorders can range from simple reversible confusion (26%) with postoperative cognitive dysfunction without actual recovery (10%).

The hypnosedation is an ancient technique of anesthesia expanding its effects on cognitive function remain to this day unknown, but appear promising.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Patients With Breast Cancer and Breast Surgery Requiring Other: hypnosedation Other: general anesthésia Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

For twenty years, hypnosedation is offered to patients who underwent surgery as an alternative to other anesthetic techniques (general anesthesia and locoregional), in some European and Anglo-Saxon hospitals for specific surgical indications (surgery area). It is commonly used in some hospitals.

The hypnosedation is little used in oncology

The hypnosedation is a hypnosis technique suitable for anesthesia, namely the one associated with intravenous conscious sedation and local anesthesia hypnosis. This derived from medical hypnosis Ericksoniene technique is divided into three stages:

  1. induction
  2. Deepening trance
  3. Déhypnotisation.

This technique is currently being validated and used at national and international level, in fact it is based on 500 references and appears in the national nomenclature of the Common Classification of Medical Procedures in the code ANRP 001, states: hypnosis referred to analgesic.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluating the evolution of cognitive function in patients treated with surgery for breast cancer according to the type of anesthesia chosen by the patient [ Time Frame: at time of surgery ]
    Evaluation of cognitive impairment in a series of neuropsychological tests validated : questionnaire for subjective cognitive complaint cognitive and memory test Grober and Buschke, attentional tests and tests of executive functions for cognitive objectives.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess patient characteristics according to the type of anesthesia used [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

    Assess patient characteristics (physiological, psychological and sociocultural) according to the type of anesthesia used, to identify characteristics predictive of choice of hypnosedation.

    Depending on the type of anesthesia, evaluated before and after surgery: pain, anxiety level and patient satisfaction with regard to the anesthetic technique.

  2. Depending on the type of anesthesia: pain, anxiety level and patient satisfaction with regard to the anesthetic technique. [ Time Frame: at time of surgery ]
    Pain and patient satisfaction will be evaluated by a numerical scale and emotional state by the HAD scale.
