Sentinel Lymph Node Pressure in Breast Cancer

Abstract

Leakiness of angiogenic tumor vessels results in elevated pressure in primary breast cancers and increased lymphatic flow to sentinel lymph node(s) (SLNs). We hypothesized that a similar pathophysiology in metastatic axillary SLNs would result in increased intranodal pressure (INP). SLNs were “hot” and “blue” after intramammary injection of dilute methylene… (More)
