American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG) Z0011: Impact on surgeon practice patterns
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
Paget's Disease, Mammary
Surgeons at our institution have implemented Z0011 results for the majority of patients; however, clinicopathologic factors still impact the decision to perform ALND. Z0011 results have significantly impacted practice by decreasing rates of ALND, use of intraoperative nodal evaluation, and operative times.
