OBJECTIVE To propose an algorithm to determine the necessity for ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration (US-FNA) in preoperative axillary lymph node staging of patients with invasive breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective study developed at National Cancer Institute. The study sample included 100 female patients with breast cancer(More)
The most consistent indications for USguided CB of breast are listed on Table 1. Patients with imaging studies revealing findings as BI-RADS category 4 (approximately 20% to 40% are malignant) or BI-RADS 5 (about 95% are malignant) must undergo biopsy. Findings classified as BI-RADS 3 present a lower risk for malignancy (< 2.0%), but such findings do(More)
97 Background: To reduce arm morbidity the sentinel lymph node biopsy was implemented in the breast cancer treatment. The aim of this study was to investigate the arm morbidity after sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node dissection. METHODS This is a prospective cohort study of women who underwent surgical treatment of breast cancer at a(More)
97 Background: The surgical treatment of breast cancer has evolved from radical mastectomy to breast conservation therapy. Today we have another therapeutic dilemma: how to manage the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) in mastectomy offering patients better aesthetic results with oncologic safety. METHODS We analyzed data on 125 consecutive nipple- or(More)
26 healthy children between the ages of 36 and 60 months (mean 35 months) who satisfied the selection criteria during a screening visit participated in this double blind study. The subjects were assigned randomly to receive either 75 mg/kg Triclofos elixir (Regimen I-21 children) or 50 mg/1kg Trichlofos elixir combined with 1 mg/kg promethazine elixir(More)
