  Purpose

RATIONALE: Cryosurgery kills cancer cells by freezing them. Cryosurgery followed by lumpectomy or mastectomy may be an effective treatment for breast lesions.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of cryosurgery in treating women who have breast lesions.

Study Start Date: May 2001
Study Completion Date: July 2004
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the feasibility of temperature-monitored, ultrasound-guided cryosurgery in women with highly suspicious breast lesions.
  • Determine the safety of this procedure in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo cryoablation of up to two breast lesions. Within 3-21 days, patients undergo lumpectomy or mastectomy.

Patients are followed at 1, 4, 8, and 12 weeks after lumpectomy or mastectomy.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 25 patients will be accrued for this study.
