This study aims to analyse trends in the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and the impact on surgical outcomes.MethodsWe reviewed all records of cT1-4N1-3M0 breast cancer patients diagnosed between July 2011 and June 2016 who have been registered in the Dutch National Breast Cancer Audit (NBCA) (N = 57.177). The surgical outcomes of 'BCS after NAC′ were compared with 'primary BCS′, using a multivariable logistic regression model.ResultsBetween 2011 and 2016, the use of NAC increased from 9% to 18% and 'BCS after NAC' (N = 4170) increased from 43% to 57%. We observed an involved invasive margin rate ...
