Background: Metastases to internal mammary lymph nodes (IMN) may occur in patients with breast cancer and may alter treatment recommendations. The purpose of this study was to identify the frequency of IMN drainage in patients undergoing breast lymphoscintigraphy and sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND). Methods: The combined technique of peritumoral injection of radiocolloid and Lymphazurin blue for SLND was performed on 220 patients. All patients underwent preoperative lymphoscintigraphy… CONTINUE READING
