Summary

The main purpose of the study is to study the effectiveness of using a technique called RadioFrequency Ablation (RFA) after the breast tumor has been surgically removed. Ablation means cells are destroyed. The RFA device creates heat that destroys any cells in the area around where the tumor is removed, an area called the cavity or tumor bed

Description

This study will evaluate the ability of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of breast cancer lumpectomy sites to extend the "final" negative margin and consequently decrease the rates of re-operation and potentially obviate the need for XRT in early breast cancer. During the initial breast conservation procedure (lumpectomy), immediately following routine surgical resection of the tumor, radiofrequency energy (RFA) is applied to the wall (bed) of the fresh lumpectomy cavity, thus extending tumor free margin radially beyond the volume of the resected specimen.
