To report early adverse events and patient-reported outcomes (PROs) of 3-fraction intracavitary catheter-based partial breast brachytherapy (ICBB).
This article was published in the following journal.

Shorter courses of APBI delivered as single-fraction intraoperative therapy are now offered as an alternative to 4-6 weeks of whole breast irradiation after lumpectomy; however, there are potential pa...
To prospectively characterize toxicity and cosmesis after accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) with 3D conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) or single-entry multilumen intracavitary brachytherapy.
Three-dimensional Conformal Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) is a treatment option for well selected women with breast cancer, despite reports of adverse cosmetic outcome with this techni...
Hypofractionated whole breast irradiation (HWBI) and accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) represent two adjuvant radiation therapy options following breast conserving surgery. We performed a ...
High-dose-rate, multicatheter interstitial brachytherapy is technically complex and operator-dependent, requiring lengthy training and specialized skills. Furthermore, until the advent of contouring o...
The investigators proposed approach allows them to deliver a low total dose of radiation to patients with low-risk, early-stage breast cancer which would further minimize the impact of adj...
This study is to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of accelerated partial breast irradiation (ABPI) with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in low-risk breast cancer treat with ...
This study offers 5 fraction radiation treatment through partial breast irradiation in patients with early stage breast cancer after having a lumpectomy.
To determine whether an accelerated course of radiotherapy delivered to the lumpectomy cavity plus margin using IORT as a single dose, intracavitary brachytherapy with the MammoSite device...
This study is to compare radiation toxicity of accelerated partial breast irradiation (ABPI) with whole breast irradiation (WBI) in low-risk breast cancer.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).
Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)
