  1. Fulltext. Treating early-stage breast cancer : hospital characteristics associated with breast-conserving surgery.

    Article - En anglais


    Despite growing acceptance of the fact that women with early-stage breast cancer have similar outcomes with lumpectomy plus radiation as with mastectomy, many studies have revealed the uneven adoption of such breast-conserving surgery.

    Discharge data from the Hospital Cost and Utilization Project, representing multiple payers, locations, and hospital types, demonstrate increasing trends in breast-conserving surgery as a proportion of breast cancer surgeries from 1981 to 1987.

    Women with axillary node involvement were less likely to have a lumpectomy, even though consensus recommendations do not preclude this form of treatment when local metastases are present.

    Non-White race, urban hospital location, and hospital teaching were associated with an increased likelihood of having breast-conserving surgery.
