ABREU, Benedita Andrade Leal de et al. Sentinel lymphnode in breast cancer: an experience with 53 cases. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2007, vol.50, n.spe, pp.45-47. ISSN 1678-4324. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132007000600006.
The value of sentinel lymphnode biopsy or selective linfadenectomy in assessing axillary status in breast carcinoma is well established in medical literature. This work presents a briefy study from our preliminary experience with 53 patients submitted to pre-surgical limphoscintigraphy and intraoperatory detection of sentinel lymphnode and compares our records with those of current medical literature.
