abstract

  • Although overall relapse-free and disease-specific survivals are similar, there is a higher rate of relapse in a subset of SLND node-negative patients who are at high risk for nodal metastases. ELND and SLNB should not be thought of as equivalent approaches until studies with longer follow-up are available.
