This study aimed at evaluating the relationship between the nonvisualization of sentinel nodes (SNs) at lymphoscintigraphy and the intraoperative detection rate, radioactive counts in vivo, and histological status of SNs. Two hundred eighty patients with infiltrating breast carcinoma (T0, T1/T2) underwent preoperative lymphoscintigraphy before gamma probe–guided SN biopsy. The surgical identification rate with a gamma probe was 84.6% (56 of 280) in lymphoscintigraphy-negative patients and 93.2… CONTINUE READING
