[Interventional methods in diagnostics of the breast -- a new vacuum biopsy system for the breast in routine clinical practice].

Abstract

AIM

To evaluate the diagnostic potential of the new vacuum-assisted method VacuFlash (VF) in clinical routine of breast diagnostics.

METHOD

From april 2002 to march 2003, the new sonographically guided vacuum-assisted system VacuFlash was used in 75 patients with a BI-RADS 5 lesion (analogue). The patients were aged between 31-75 yrs (median: 51 yrs), the size of the lesions measured 8-33 mm (median: 14 mm). 5 specimens were taken from each lesion.

RESULTS

In 69 of the 75 lesions (92 %, respectively), malignancy was confirmed. In 8 lesions (8 %, resp.), we found a benign histology, confirmed by consecutive surgery.

CONCLUSION

The new vacuum-assisted device VacuFlash is a technically perfected and applicable diagnostic method. Especially in the view of the cost it has to be compared with high-speed core cut biopsy, the hand-held Mammotome system and open surgical biopsy. High-speed core cut biopsy seems to be the standard procedure in diagnostic percutaneous breast intervention to clarify sonographically detected breast lesions.
