Increased risk of surgical site infection among breast-conserving surgery re-excisions.
The aim of this study was to determine the risk of surgical site infection (SSI) after primary breast-conserving surgery (BCS) versus re-excision among women with carcinoma in situ or invasive breast cancer. It found that the risk of SSI after re-excision remained significantly higher after accounting for multiple procedures within a woman.
