Sample text

Because SLNB imparts a reduced risk of morbidity and because there is a real, all be it small, risk of lymphatic metastasis in the DCIS patient population, some groups advocate for axillary staging for DCIS. The pathologic evaluation of the SLN is much more rigorous than traditional non-sentinel node evaluation. Not infrequently, the consequence is the discovery of occult metastasis when formerly node-negative lymph node specimens of patients with invasive cancer were analyzed according to current sentinel node protocols82,83.

These findings are echoed in the work of Roumen et al when they reported the results of reoperative SLNB in 12 patients with previous breast and axillary surgery. Ten patients had successful SLN identification, 50% of whom the surgical plan was altered as a result of the lymphoscintigraphy and SLNB. Preoperative lymphoscintigraphy identified contralateral axillary SLN in patients who had undergone previous ALND in 4 patients thereby adding contralateral axillary exploration to the surgical plan.
