Reflector-guided breast tumor localization versus wire localization for lumpectomies: A comparison of surgical outcomes

      Highlights

      • This is a comparison of surgical outcomes of SAVI SCOUT reflector localization versus wire localization for breast tumors.
      • There are no significant differences in median specimen volumes, positive margin rate, close margin rate or re-excision rate.
      • SSL is an acceptable alternative to WL with no significant differences in surgical outcomes.

      Abstract

      Purpose

      To compare surgical outcomes of SAVI SCOUT reflector localization (SSL) versus wire localization (WL) for breast tumors.

      Methods

      Retrospective review of 42 SSL cases and 42 WL cases. WL patients were consecutively matched for clinical-pathologic features. Final surgical outcome measures were tumor specimen volume, margin status, and re-excision rates.

      Results

      No significant differences were present in median specimen volumes (SSL-15.2 cm3 vs. WL-16.3 cm3), positive margin rate (SSL-9.5% vs. WL-7.1%), close margin rate (SSL-7.1% vs. WL-11.9%) or re-excision rate (SSL-7.1% vs. WL-9.5%).

      Conclusion

      SSL is an acceptable alternative to WL with no significant differences in surgical outcomes.
