The Consequence of Multiple Re-Excisions to Obtain Clear Lumpectomy Margins in Breast Cancer Patients

Abstract

Microscopically clear lumpectomy margins are critical for optimizing local control with breast conservation for cancer. Re-excisions are often necessary to achieve clear surgical margins.
