Authors: Oreste Gentilini, Jasdeep Gahir

Abstract

The paper by Jeevan and co-workers about reoperation rates after breast conserving surgery (BCS) in England is an important and crude picture of reality. The paper describes the common practise among English NHS trust on the management of women undergoing BCS for breast cancer. The outcomes and conclusions may have a considerable impact on our patients and this type of robust national data analysis should be carried out in every country and published to see how breast cancer is treated.
