Abstract

We believe that the recent News and Views article (Sasieni, P. D. & Sawyer, E. J. Intraoperative radiotherapy for early breast cancer — insufficient evidence to change practice. Nat. Rev. Clin. Oncol. 17, 723–724 (2020))1 about the TARGIT-A trial contains several factual and logical errors. This article overlooks both the long-term positive findings2 and the all-important patient perspective.
