Analysis of Axillary Lymph Nodes in Breast Cancer Patients with Positive Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.092
Synopsis: 
This study has shown the analysis and characteristics of axillary lymph nodes after axillary dissection. The likelihood of non-SLN metastases is shown to be dependent on penetration of the sentinel’s capsule by malignant cells, tumor grade, stage, and molecular subtype.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to show the incidence of patients with positive non-sentinel (non-SLN)  after the axillary dissection was performed due to positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) and also to show how the incidence of positive non-SLN depends on penetration of sentinel's capsule by malignant cells, gradus and molecular subtype of the breast cancer.

Contralateral Humerus Avascular Necrosis Diagnosed Immediately After Radiotherapy in a Patient with Breast Cancer

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.366

ABSTRACT

Radiotherapy (RT) is an important component of treatment for malignant tumors, and avascular necrosis (AVN), which is often associated with high morbidity and disability, frequently accompanies this type of therapy. It generally develops in the same extremity with the treated region and may continue long after the treatment is completed. Early identification of AVN has the potential to reduce morbidity and improve the patient's quality of life.
