[Sentinel lymph node biopsy with micrometastases in breast cancer: histological data and surgical implications. About a series of 201 axillary dissections after peroperative sentinel node identification].

The benefit of systematic dissection of the non-sentinel lymph nodes (NSLN) in case of micrometastases (> or = 2 mm) in sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) is still being debated. The purpose of this work was to identify, from the histological characteristics of the micrometastases and the primitive tumors out of a series of 201 invasive breast carcinomas, of which… (More)
