[Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy for diagnosis of non-palpable lesions: experience with 226 cases].
Pathologica. 2008 Jun; 100(3):162-5.P

Abstract

Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy (VABB) is now available for non-palpable lesions. The present study describes the results obtained from 226 consecutive VABBs performed at "L. Sacco" Hospital, Milan, from November 2005 to July 2007 (198 stereotactic and 28 ultrasonographic procedures). Adequate tissue samples for histopathological evaluation were obtained in 225 cases (99.6%). The diagnoses were as follows: 9 normal tissues (4%), 97 benign (43%), 25 "probably benign" (11%), 4 "suspicious for malignancy" (2%) and 90 malignant (40%, 53 in situ and 37 infiltrating carcinoma). Of the 90 malignant cases, 38 (42.2%) underwent subsequent surgical excision in our Unit; 84.2% (32/38) had concordant histopathological findings. In conclusion, VABB is an accurate and safe technique for diagnosis of non-palpable lesions, and in experienced hands avoids unnecessary surgical procedures.
