One of the main benefits to the surgeon is the potential to down-size the tumour, thus facilitating breast-conserving surgery (BCS). Although the practice of BCS following NAC is now widely established, there is relatively little data on the impact of intrinsic breast cancer subtype on BCS conversion rates. The aim of this study was to evaluate differences in BCS rates between intrinsic breast cancer subtypes in patients undergoing NAC, in addition to clinical outcome.
