英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Purpose(#br)Early-stage breast cancer patients with minimal axillary disease identified by sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) have low regional recurrence rates when treated with breast-conserving surgery and radiation therapy (XRT) and many avoid a completion axillary lymph node dissection (CLND). As the incidence of total mastectomy (TM) has increased, it has become important to characterize which TM patients with a positive SLN may not benefit from further axillary treatment.(#br) Methods(#br)An institutional database was utilized to identify patients treated with a TM for invasive breast cancer and who had a positive SLN from 1994 to 2010. Clinicopathologic factors were analyzed. Regional recurrence rate, recurrence-free survival (RFS), and overall survival (OS) were...
