Batwing Quadrantectomy


A 62-year-old patient had a history of breast conservation surgery for a small intraductal carcinoma in situ in the upper outer quadrant of the right breast. Surgery was done 5 years before in a foreign country, and no further radiation therapy was applied. Routine mammography showed a small (5 mm) suspicious lesion in the upper central quadrant with associated microcalcifications suspicious for intraductal carcinoma. Diagnosis of an invasive ductal carcinoma and intraductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) was done through vacuum needle biopsy, and the patient was scheduled for another breast conservation surgery.
