[MOL] Optimal management of DCIS Carcinoma In Situ

Outcomes and Factors Impacting Local Recurrence of Ductal
    Carcinoma In Situ
    [03/30/2000; Cancer Online (Free Registration Required)]

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND. The optimal management of ductal carcinoma
in situ (DCIS) remains controversial. Investigators have focused
on identifying patients who are eligible for treatment by excision
alone. A retrospective analysis of patients with DCIS treated
by various modalities was conducted to compare outcomes and determine
factors significant for local recurrence (LR). 

CONCLUSIONS: If surgical margins are tumor free, the LSR regimen 
is equivalent to mastectomy for local tumor control. Annual 
mammograms may be adequate for the follow-up of patients with 
irradiated breasts, but biannual studies still are recommended 
for patients treated with excision alone.
