The authors hypothesized that a subareolar injection of material would drain to the same lymph node as a peritumoral injection, regardless of the location of the tumor. METHODS To test this theory, 68 patients with 69 operable invasive breast carcinomas and clinically node-negative disease were enrolled… CONTINUE READING
