A Multicentre Registry Study of Permanent Breast Seed Implant (PBSI) for Early Stage Breast Cancers.
Women found to have early stage breast cancer will have their cancer surgically removed
followed by radiation treatment to the entire breast, five times per week for several weeks.
The radiation treatment prevents the cancer from growing back but creates skin burns.
Several studies have showed that it is nor necessary treating the whole breast.
The investigators team has pioneered a new therapy realizing the permanent implantation of
tiny radioactive seeds into the surgical cavity in a single one hour procedure under light
anesthesia. Patients live a normal life while receiving the radiation treatment. The results
of a first clinical trial on 67 patients shows that the treatment is well tolerate and
efficient. The purpose of the study is to offer the treatment in several places and to
increase the cohort of patient to 420 to capture rare complications if any.
