Summary We analysed data on admissions to Victorian public hospitals for surgical treatment of breast cancer over the period July 1985 to December 1988. Of the 2993 women admitted, 28.7% received breast-preserving surgery. The probability of a woman being treated conservatively was dependent on age, with women aged less than 50 or more than 70 years more likely to receive breast-preserving surgery than women aged 50-69. There was an age-specific change, of marginal statistical significance, in the proportion of women receiving breast-preserving surgery over the period. The public hospitals admissions database is a potentially useful means of monitoring patterns of surgical treatment.
