abstract

  • Tumour size, LVI, age, nuclear grade, histological subtype, multifocality and location in the breast were independent predictive factors for ALNM in IFDC. ALNM is less frequent in UIQ tumours than in other-quadrant tumours. Our prospectively validated predictive model could be valuable in pre-operative patient discussions, although staging of the axilla in the individual patient remains necessary.
