Background: Axillary lymph node status is the strongest prognostic indicator of survival for women with breast cancer. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of sentinel node metastases in patients with high-risk ductal carcinoma-in-situ (DCIS) and DCIS with microinvasion (DCISM). Methods: From November 1997 to November 1999, all patients who underwent sentinel node biopsy for high-risk DCIS (n = 76) or DCISM (n = 31) were enrolled prospectively in our database. Patients with… CONTINUE READING
