Oncoplastic surgical techniques have expanded indications for breast conservation and have improved both oncologic and reconstructive outcomes. This article will focus on some of the barriers to adoption and discuss ways to improve safety through streamlining the process, understanding the oncologic concerns, and evaluating unfavorable outcomes that might interfere with the appropriate delivery of breast cancer care.
After viewing this course, the participant should be able to:
- Describe the risks, benefits, and safety profile of oncoplastic procedures for partial breast reconstruction, and how they compare to breast conservation-therapy alone.
- Have a working knowledge of oncoplastic techniques and how they are addressed from the multidisciplinary perspective.
- Understand the limitations of oncoplastic techniques and how to avoid unfavorable results.
