Purpose: Report preoperative and postoperative patient and tumor characteristics for breast cancer patients treated at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical College with Intrabeam intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT).

Methods: Records of all 61 patients treated with Intrabeam IORT from 2012–2013 were retrospectively reviewed.

Results: The median follow-up time was 6.0 months (range: 0.0–18.1 mo), and no patients have developed a local recurrence. The average age was 71.1 ± 8.9 years (range: 53–89 yr). Left-sided breast cancer accounted for 50.8% of the patients. The median applicator size was 3.5 cm (range: 3–5 cm). The median tumor size was 1.0 cm (range: 0.1–2.5 cm). The histology of the tumors was 70.5% invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), 19.7% invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), and 9.8% ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Only one patient with ILC was under the age of 65 years. With respect to grade, 26.2% of tumors were high-grade, 50.8% of tumors were intermediate-grade, and 23.0% of tumors were low-grade. Node positivity was seen in five patients (8.2%), and lymphovascular invasion was seen in six patients (9.8%), of whom only three patients were not recommended to undergo external beam RT (EBRT). With respect to receptor status, 91.8% were estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, 77.0% were progesterone receptor (PR)-positive, and 3.3% were human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive. All patients underwent same-day surgery, and there were no perioperative or postoperative complications.

Conclusion: Patients treated with Intrabeam IORT at our institution were a more favorable group of patients compared with the TARGIT trial, as they were elderly women with small, hormone receptor-positive, and node-negative tumors. Treatment was well tolerated, with high patient satisfaction.
