abstract

  • We could not identify any surgery-radiotherapy interval that resulted in increased local recurrence if radiotherapy was delayed for administration of adjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. Because of the heterogenous population of breast cancer patients, our results also support the need for further study to determine the optimum integration of radiotherapy and chemotherapy in the management of the conservatively treated breast.
