BACKGROUND Axillary staging (pN) is considered one of the most important prognostic factors in breast cancer patients. However, the Z0011 study data drastically reduced the number of surgical axillary dissections in a selected group of patients, limiting the prognostic information relating to axillary involvement to the sentinel lymph node (SLN). It is known that there is a relationship between SLN total tumour load (TTL) and axillary involvement. The objective of this study is to analyse the… CONTINUE READING
