PURPOSE Several studies have demonstrated poor locoregional control in patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), compared with other molecular subtypes of breast cancer. We sought to evaluate whether or not postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) improves locoregional recurrence-free survival (LRFS) and disease-free survival (DFS) outcomes in TNBC patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between January 2000 and July 2007, 553 TNBC patients treated with modified radical mastectomy from a single… CONTINUE READING
