SAN ANTONIO -- Accelerated partial breast irradiation
(APBI) using an interstitial multi-catheter brachytherapy method is as effective as whole breast irradiation (WBI) at preventing local disease recurrence 5 years after surgery for early breast cancer, according to the long-term results of a large European randomized phase III trial.
The use of accelerated partial breast irradiation
(see "Facts About Radiotherapy," page 7) also may make a difference.

The accelerated partial breast irradiation
(APBI) concept, based on confining the irradiation to the vicinity of the tumour bed, shortening the course of the treatment and allowing more convenience for patients, has contributed to changes in the RT paradigms [6, 7].
