Abstract

The National Cancer Data Base reports that earlier-stage patients of breast cancer were more often treated with partial mastectomy. During this same time there has been a remarkable rise in the employment of stereotactic biopsy technique, an approach whereby two mammographic images taken from fixed vantage points in the same plane permit the highly accurate placement of a core sampling device through a 2 mm incision with minimal cosmetic change. This with advances in interstitial, therapeutic minimally invasive therapy in a number of domains now sets the stage for minimally invasive therapy of breast carcinoma. These advances include laser fiberoptic therapy, radiofrequency therapy, cryotherapy, and ultrasound therapy.
