Mastectomy without radiotherapy: outcome analysis after 10 years of follow-up in a single institution
Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, 05/04/2012
Botteri E et al. – Women with node–negative tumors have the lowest risk of loco–regional recurrence (LRR) and represent the group of patients that might benefit the least from radiotherapy. PVI and Ki–67 might help tailoring PMRT indications among patients with positive LNs. Finally, the very low incidence of recurrences in the axillary LNs raises questions about the inclusion of the axilla in the radiation field.
