Radical axillary dissection in sentinel lymph node biopsy era: it's still a considerable technique in breast cancer management?



Radical axillary dissection in sentinel lymph node biopsy era: it's still a considerable technique in breast cancer management?



Il Giornale di Chirurgia 31(6-7): 344-346



The new staging technique of sentinel node biopsy facilitates the identification of pathological node negative patients in whom axillary dissection may be avoided; however, patients with a positive sentinel node biopsy would require a thorough examination of their nodal status. Axillary dissection provides good local control, accurate staging and prognostic information for decisions about adjuvant therapy. We describe a technique of radical axillary clearance that includes levels I, II and III; this isn't associated with additional morbidity to patients and involves minimal extension of operative time.
