axillary lymph node dissection alnd in carcinoma breast
Axillary Lymph Node Dissection (ALND) in Carcinoma Breast
  • Axillary clearance for local disease control
  • Prognosis
early carcinoma breast
Early Carcinoma Breast
  • Histopathological positivity of axilla on ALND 30% ~40%
  • 60-70% patients of primary carcinoma breast patients are undergoing unnecessary ALND
  • ALND associated morbidity
  • ? Adjuvant chemotherapy
technical issues in sln detection and imaging
Technical Issues in SLN Detection and Imaging
  • What tracer ?
  • What injection site ?
  • Large or small volume.
  • How many MBq’s ?

Technical Issues in SLN Detection and Imaging

What is most appropriate site of injection

  • Subareolar
  • Peritumoral
  • Intratumoral
  • Subdermal
  • Subcutaneous
concept of single injection
Concept of Single Injection
  • Lymphatic drainage of breast consists of dermal and parenchymal lymphatics which meet at Subareolar lymphatics which meet at subareolar plexus of Sappey.
  • This further drain through one or two major lymphatic trunk to axilla.
  • Position of this lymphatic plexus gives the opportunity of single uniformally consistent subareolar injection of injection of radiopharmaceutical/blue dye into breast lymphatics.
  • Adjuvant Systemic therapy
results
Results
  • Imaging + ve 84.8%
  • Probe +ve 97.3%
  • Blue dye +ve 91.4%
  • Concordance between

probe and blue dye 94.4%

  • SLN histopathology 97.2 % (accuracy)

(H.E. matched with axilla nodes)

Which mode of detection is preferable ?

  • Probe detection and imaging
  • Probe detection only
  • Blue dye alone or in combination with probe detection

Technical Issues in SLN Detection and Imaging

What pathological evidence is required?

  • Fine-needle aspiration cytology
  • Imprint cytology
  • H.E. Staining alone
  • Cytokeratin immunohistochemistry
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Currently detection of SLN is highly accurate in context of carcinoma breast.
  • There is rapidly increasing database population.
  • Training programmers relevant to multidisciplinary teams need to be developed for this methodology.
