Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) is the standard of care for axillary staging in breast cancer. Multiple Step-section Frozen Section (MSFS) analysis is used in our institution for SLNB. This is performed intra-operatively by freezing sentinel lymph nodes to obtain multiple step-sections which are examined histologically for evidence of metastases. Patients whose sentinel lymph nodes contained macrometastases proceeded to an axillary node clearance during the same operation. 717 patients over a… CONTINUE READING
