Breast-conserving surgery (BCS) combined with postoperative radiotherapy has become the gold standard of locoregional treatment in patients with early-stage breast cancer. When large tumor resections are needed in small medium size breasts, oncoplastic procedures (OPP) have been introduced to improve the cosmetic result; but in several cases, OPP may be not sufficient to accomplish this purpose. Oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC, Tabotamp fibrillar; Johnson & Johnson; Ethicon) has been reported to be useful in OPP to optimize the cosmetic results after OPP. However, no ultrastructural study is available on the use of ORC as a filler in BCS.
