Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of histologically healthy margins maintained during resection

Estimated Enrollment: 352
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:



  • Evaluate the percentage of histologically healthy margins maintained during resection in women with breast cancer.


  • Evaluate local recurrence at 5 years.
  • Evaluate aesthetic results.
  • Evaluate quality of life using the QLQC30 and BR23 questionnaires.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo oncoplastic conservative surgery according to defined modalities across the various centers.

Quality of life is assessed periodically.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 6 months for 2 years and then for at least 3 years.
