A Randomized Controlled Trial of Routine Shave Margins vs. Standard Partial Mastectomy in Breast Cancer Patients
Trial Purpose and Description
This study aims to determine whether routine shave margins in breast cancer patients undergoing partial mastectomy will result in more optimal surgical treatment of breast cancer patients, as defined by reduced positive margin rates and reduced local recurrence rates. Secondary objectives are to determine the effect of routine shave margins on cosmesis, operative time, and volume of tissue resected.
