BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node (SLN) staging is currently used to avoid complete axillary dissection in breast cancer patients with negative SLNs. Evidence of a similar efficacy, in terms of survival and regional control, of this strategy as compared with axillary resection is based on few clinical trials. In 1998, we started a randomized study comparing the two strategies, and we present here its results. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients were randomly assigned to sentinel lymph node biopsy… CONTINUE READING
