Abstract
The fast pace of urbanization in many developing countries coupled with the imposed changes in life style has resulted in many alterations in disease patterns. In developing countries, breast cancer has shown increasing incidence over the last decades with young age and advanced disease at the initial presentations. The lack of breast cancer awareness programs and scarcity specialized breast centers in the region further impacts negatively on the outcomes limiting the surgical options to liberal adoption of mastectomies that drives women away from early presentations. Developing countries are deprived from adequate centers to cover the population needs for radiation therapy; hence, breast conserving surgery is rarely an option. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Consensus, the number of radiation oncology centers worldwide is scarce and mainly clustered in developed countries. Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) to be utilized in conventional operating rooms maybe a breakthrough in countries with limited resources. Based on the emerging numerous studies and strictly adhering selection criteria in our setup at King Fahd Hospital of the University of Dammam, IORT has shown a promising alternative, it is portrait as efficient, convenient, cost effective, sparing or shortening the patients the long sessions of external beam radiation while providing equally effective outcomes. IORT is an appealing treatment which is expected to propagate breast conserving therapy (BCT), early detection and restricting unnecessary mastectomies.
