Paper Abstract

The treatment of primary breast cancer in the last half century has progressively decreased in its disfiguring consequences while maintaining the same level of cure. Extending this philosophy beyond lumpectomy, we propose to treat small primary breast cancers by laser interstitial therapy with minimal possible cosmetic distortion. Our program to achieve that goal has made considerable progress in the preclinical instrument modification and development of physical, tissue, and live animal models. In anticipation of a clinical trial this report updates information presented in 1996.
