Optimal and tailored surgical treatment of phyllodes tumour(PT) of the breast is controversial. This study aims to determine the appropriate surgical margin in the treatment of PT.
The data of 132 patients who underwent breast surgery with the diagnosis of PT at the Breast Unit of Istanbul Faculty of Medicine from 2000 to 2022 were retrospectively reviewed.
According to our findings, negative surgical margins seem to be sufficient in the treatment of benign phyllodes tumours. Furthermore at least 1 cm negative surgical margins must be achieved for malignant and borderline phyllodes tumours to avoid local recurrence.
