abstract

  • Axillary lymph node dissection was no more likely to be indicated for high-risk patients. For patients undergoing ALND, the nodal burden was similar. For patients otherwise meeting the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG) Z0011 clinical eligibility criteria, ALND is not indicated on the basis of age or subtype.
