In the last decade the BCWG work mainly focused on the indications, techniques and quality assurance of traditional breast brachytherapy used as a boost after external beam whole breast irradiation. During the last two decades, the new concept of accelerated partial breast irradiation APBI opened a new perspective for breast brachytherapy. Reexcision followed by reirradiation using interstitial breast implants has been also implemented as an alternative to mastectomy to treat ipsilateral breast local recurrence after previous breast-conserving therapy.
In the last decade, several groups have implemented multicatheter brachytherapy technique instead of the traditionally used rigid needle technique and 3-D CT image-based brachytherapy treatment planning for the management of breast cancer. These developments all together opened new horizon for clinical research in breast brachytherapy.
In the past few years motivated young colleagues have joined the experienced core of the BCWG. Recently the group has a couple of ongoing projects:. One of the most important projects of the BCWG was the development and conduction of the first European multicentric breast brachytherapy trial comparing the efficacy of multicatheter APBI to conventional whole breast irradiation.
Clinical implementation of a novel Double-Balloon single-entry breast brachytherapy applicator.
The study was supported by a grant from the German Cancer Aid. The first results of this landmark study hopefully will be available for the radiation oncology community in the next World Brachytherapy Meeting in in Barcelona.

APBI, in fact, encompasses a number of different techniques and approaches that include brachytherapy, intraoperative, and external beam techniques. There is currently no single source that describes these techniques and their clinical implementation. This text is a concise handbook designed to assist the clinician in the implementation of APBI. This includes a review of the principles that underlie APBI, a practical and detailed description of each technique for APBI, a review of current clinical results of APBI, and a review of the incidence and management of treatment related complications.
