Abstract: Electron intraoperative radiotherapy (ELIOT) has been introduced for breast conservative treatment (BCT) with promising oncological outcome. Thus, immediate breast reconstruction with prosthesis after BCT became possible due to minimal radiation effect on local tissue from ELIOT. We reported oncological and esthetical results of 29 BCT patients who had immediate implant reconstruction plus 21 Gy-ELIOT as the sole radiation treatment. All patients had prosthesis in ipsilateral breast and had simultaneous contralateral augmentation for symmetrical procedure. The average age was 52.3 years. There were stage Ia thirteen cases, stage Ib seven cases, stage IIa six cases and stage IIIb one case and two cases of intraepithelial neoplasia. From 54.2 (36-88) months follow up, the capsular contracture grading in the reconstructed breast from ELIOT-side is comparable with non-irradiated contralateral side. There was one patient who developed local recurrence (LR) and later on dead with breast related event (LR = 0.76% per year). There was no primary ipsilateral carcinomas and distant metastasis. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
