Oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery satisfies oncologic principles of negative margins and improves cosmetic outcomes, even if excision of a considerably large breast volume is required. During this surgical procedure quadrantectomy cavity is filled by the latissimus dorsi mini-flap which might shift tumor bed. The purpose of this study is to evaluate geographic variability after this procedure and its relevance to radiation therapy planning.
