abstract

  • These results show that ETE is associated with decreased survival and increased recurrence rates regardless of the extent of the radiation therapy field. Also, ETE does not necessarily indicate a significantly increased incidence of axillary recurrence. Therefore, axillary irradiation based on this pathologic finding may not be indicated.
