abstract

  • One operation was performed in 80.9% of women with percutaneously proven nonpalpable breast cancer, including 74.1% of women who had breast-conserving surgery and 95.5% of women who had mastectomy. Among women who had breast conservation, one operation was significantly more likely if histologic underestimation was absent or if a mammographic mass was present.
