BACKGROUND: Axillary lymph node dissection is commonly performed as part of the primary management of breast carcinoma.
Axillary nodal metastasis occurs in less than 10% of breast sarcomas, making sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node dissection unnecessary (10).
A new study has shown that women with early breast cancer and positive lymph nodes lived just as long whether they had sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) plus axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) or SLND alone.
They discovered that certain women with breast cancer who had only their sentinel lymph node removed - the lymph node closest to the cancer - survived just as long as women who had more extensive surgery to remove lymph nodes in the armpit, known as axillary lymph node dissection.
SLNB can safely be performed in patients with pregnancy-associated breast cancer, thus sparing patients the risk of a complete axillary lymph node dissection (ALND).
