There is little literature assessing the incidence of subsequent carcinoma in patients diagnosed with atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) by mammotome. We reviewed 216 stereotactic mammotome biopsies (SMBs) and compared the results to the 121 automated tru-cut biopsies (ATC) performed at our breast care center from June 1994 to July 1998. The median age in the mammotome series was 57 years, compared to 56 years in the ATC group. An increase in biopsies for microcalcifications (49% versus 41%) was… CONTINUE READING
