Abstract

Rates of local recurrence, metastases, subsequent unplanned imaging, and biopsies after multiple-wire localized excision of breast cancers with larger mammographic abnormalities are equivalent to those after single-wire localized excision of smaller breast cancers. Multiple-wire localized lumpectomy is a safe alternative to mastectomy for large or irregularly shaped breast cancers.
