Synopsis: The authors evaluate breast-conserving surgery (BCS) conversion rates with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in patients with tumors too large for conservation. Borderline-BCS candidacy, HER2+/triple negative receptor status, tumor size, cN+ status, and mammographic calcifications are factors to consider when selecting patients for downstaging with NAC.
