Impact of Breast Conservation Surgery on Surgical Outcomes and Cosmesis in Patients With Multiple Ipsilateral Breast Cancers (MIBC)



- To assess the local recurrence (LR) rate with breast-conservation in patients with
multiple ipsilateral primary breast cancer (MIBC).


- To examine the conversion rate to mastectomy secondary to persistent positive margins;
poor cosmesis within the first year of attempting breast-conservation surgery (BCS) or
inability to satisfy the radiation dose constraints on the boost to the lumpectomy bed
of each site of disease.

- To assess patient's perception of cosmesis and incidence of breast lymphedema.

- To examine the type and severity of adverse effects of BCS and radiation for women with

- To examine the radiation-related side effects of whole-breast radiation with a boost to
1 large or > 1 lumpectomy site.

- To evaluate protein and gene expression patterns in tissue taken from each breast
lesion and to evaluate the concordance of the findings between these lesions.

- To compare the extent of disease described on imaging (mammography, bilateral breast
magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] and other adjunctive imaging modalities) with surgical

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo breast-conserving surgery (BCS) with all lesions resected to negative
margins using 1 lumpectomy or 2-3 separate lumpectomy incisions at the discretion of the
surgeon. Patients receive adjuvant chemotherapy and/or endocrine therapy at the discretion
of the treating medical oncologist based on tumor characteristics.

Within 6-10 weeks after surgery or 8 weeks after completion of cytotoxic chemotherapy,
patients undergo adjuvant whole-breast irradiation (WBI) with a boost to the lumpectomy bed
of each site of disease 5 days a week for approximately 6 weeks.

Patients complete the Breast-Conserving Therapy Module (BREAST-Q© subscales) questionnaire
5-30 days after surgery and every 6 months for the first 2 years and the yearly for the next
3 years after WBI. Patients' surgeons also complete the questionnaire 5-30 days after
performing final surgery to assess cosmetic outcomes.

Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block from each site of disease are collected
during BCS for protein and gene expression pattern studies. Blood samples may be also
collected at baseline and during BCS.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 2 years and
then yearly for years 3-5.

Inclusion Criteria


- Upon clinical exam and pre-operative imaging by MRI and mammogram both, two or three
foci of biopsy-proven breast cancer separated by ≥ 3 cm of normal breast tissue on
clinical exam and preoperative imaging; foci must include at least one focus of
invasive breast carcinoma with another focus of either invasive breast carcinoma or
ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS); no more than 2 quadrants with biopsy-positive breast

- Ultrasound cannot be used to determine patient eligibility; eligibility to be
determined by bilateral mammogram and MRI only

- Bilateral mammogram ≤ 60 days prior to registration

- Bilateral breast MRI ≤ 45 days prior to registration

- cN0 or cN1 disease

- No cNX, cN2, or cN3 disease

- Willing to provide tissue samples for correlative research purposes

- Largest single focus of disease > 5 cm by either mammogram or MRI or both
(measurement of the largest single focus should include any satellite lesions within
1 cm of the index lesion)

- No clinical or radiographic evidence of metastatic disease

- No prior or current lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), DCIS, or invasive breast cancer
in the opposite breast (i.e., bilateral disease is not allowed)

- No patients with known BRCA mutations


- Life expectancy of at least 5 years, excluding diagnosis of breast cancer (comorbid
conditions should be taken into consideration, but breast cancer diagnosis is not a

- Men are excluded from this study

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0, 1, or 2

- Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 8 g/dL

of childbearing potential only

- Nursing women

- Women of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate
contraception (as determined by the treating physician)

- No co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the
judgment of the investigator, would interfere significantly with whole-breast
irradiation (such as connective tissue disorders, lupus, or scleroderma)

- No uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active
infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac
arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with
study requirements

- No other active malignancy ≤ 5 years prior to registration; EXCEPTIONS: non-melanotic
skin cancer or carcinoma-in-situ of the cervix

- If there is a history of prior malignancy, they must not be receiving other
specific treatment for their cancer


- No surgical axillary staging procedure prior to study entry

- Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) or core-needle biopsy of axillary node is permitted

- No breast implants at time of diagnosis

- Patients who have had implants previously removed prior to diagnosis are

therapy for this cancer prior to registration

- No neoadjuvant endocrine therapy or neoadjuvant hormonal therapy

- No planned partial-breast radiation

- No administration of any investigational agent ≤ 30 days prior to registration
