|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial of Mammosite Breast Brachytherapy Optimization in the Treatment of Stage 0, I and II Breast Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date :||May 2006|
|Primary Completion Date :||April 2013|

Experimental: Five Days of Mammosite Therapy
Five Days of Mammosite Therapy (Radiotherapy)
Radiation: Mammosite brachytherapy radiation
Treatment using MammoSite will begin within five days of placement of the catheter. Only high dose rate (HDR) with Ir-192 treatment is allowed. The balloon will remain inflated throughout the treatment course. A total of 34 Gy will be prescribed to an approximate 1 cm radial distance from the balloon surface. Two fractions per day, each of 3.4 Gy, separated by at least 6 hours, given on 5 treatment days (over a period of 5 to 10 days), will sum to 10 fractions and 34 Gy.
- Skin Toxicity the First Year Following Treatment With the Multiple Dwell Mammosite Delivery Method. [ Time Frame: one year ]Evaluation of skin toxicity the first year following treatment with the multiple dwell Mammosite delivery method. The number of participants with a grade 2 skin toxicity (or higher) at 1 year follow up are reported. Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and the European organization for research and treatment of cancer (EORTC) Late Radiation Morbidity Scoring Schema were used to assess toxicity.
- Information of Treatment Parameters in Order to Define Parameters Most Predictive of Skin Toxicity [ Time Frame: Upon completion of study ]These data were not collected and were not summarized in this study. Results are not available.
