Paper Abstract

Carcinoma of the breast continues to be the second major cause of death in women in the US today, with 180,000 new cases detected annually in the US. One third of these carcinomas are 1 cm in size or less. The current techniques of surgical resection require operating rooms, anesthesia, cosmetic concerns and cost. The benefits of cryosurgery for the treatment of visceral tumors has stimulated the investigation of this approach for carcinomas of the breast. Here within is a work-in-progress report of our research program to evaluate a cryodevice and techniques for breast cryosurgery.
