2004), estimates of residual microscopic disease extent beyond a surgically obtained negative microscopic margin have not been possible. In this study, lumpectomy re-excision specimens were examined to determine the perpendicular extent of any residual microscopic extent. It was found that, in >90% of cases where the lumpectomy achieved a negative microscopic margin as defined by the National Surgical Breast and Bowel Project (no tumor on ink), any component of residual microscopic disease was limited to within 1 cm.
