Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With the modern mammography, the ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) became more and more important and its detected number has increased from 5% to 30% during the last years. This growth increased the number of treated patients. Authors reviewed their ten-years experience; 17 patients were treated during this period. The results point out conservative surgery, followed by radiotherapy of the residual breast, as the best treatment.
