Original Source: Analyzing the Risk of Recurrence after Mastectomy for DCIS: A New Use for the USC/Van Nuys Prognostic Index.

BACKGROUND: Patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) who are treated with mastectomy seldom recur locally or with metastatic disease. When patients with DCIS recur with invasive cancer, they are upstaged and their lives are threatened. We questioned whether histopathologic data could be used to predict these infrequent events. METHODS: We reviewed a prospective database of 1,472 patients with pure DCIS. All patients were scored from 4 to 12 using the USC Van Nuys Prognostic Index, an algorithm based on...
