abstract

  • Chest wall resection for locally recurrent breast cancer has a low mortality. However, a significant number of patients have the development of local re-recurrence or metastases, and 5-year survival is limited. It is unlikely that complete resection of all locally recurrent disease improves survival. Future studies should focus on the quality of palliation achieved.
