whether a patient who had a positive SLNB prior to NACT could have a repeat SLNB after NACT to increase the rate of axillary preservation?
Because many patients now present with clinically nodenegative disease, SLNB can identify those with proven nodepositive disease who may benefit from complete axillary dissection.
2], the guidelines recommend that physicians "discuss and consider" SLNB, which the available evidence suggests has roughly a 7% pretest probability of a positive result.
15) The NCCN also recommends radiation therapy to the primary site alone in cases of a negative SLNB result, and it recommends radiation therapy to both the primary site and the draining lymph nodes in cases of a positive SLNB result or cN+ disease.
Although often performed in the USA, it is generally agreed that SLNB provides important prognostic information but does not confer a survival benefit in patients with cutaneous melanoma [20].
Key to the new approach is the use of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) performed as an outpatient procedure a week or so prior to mastectomy, rather than doing the SLNB at the same operation as the mastectomy and reconstruction.
5% (n=3) following SLNB and the difference was found statistically significant (p=0.
The reason SLNB is of less use than with other melanomas is that DM "doesn't often spread through the lymphatics.

Objective: To look into the pattern of breast cancer recurrence following mastectomy, breast conservative surgery and radiotherapy or chemotherapy after SLNB at our institution.
