BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to assess the cosmesis and toxicities in patients with early-stage breast carcinoma who received treatment with accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) using interstitial brachytherapy. METHODS From April 1993 to December 2001, 199 patients with Stage I-II breast carcinoma received breast-conserving therapy with APBI to the tumor bed alone through a low-dose-rate (LDR) or high-dose-rate (HDR) implant. A template guide was used. The LDR dose was… CONTINUE READING
