Breast cancer diagnosis: the role of stereotactic vacuum-assisted aspiration biopsy.
Int J Surg. 2008; 6 Suppl 1:S104-8.IJ

Abstract

AIM

The aim of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and impact of the stereotactic vacuum-assisted aspiration biopsy (VAB) as a surgical treatment for non-palpable breast lesions.

METHODS

A retrospective analysis of the diagnostic and therapeutic management of lesions having undergone VAB treatment was conducted. From February 2003 to September 2007, 525 stereotactic VABs were performed on 504 women using an 11-gauge needle device. Of these, 201 lesions were treated surgically. The concordance between VAB results and final pathology report after surgical excision was evaluated. Also examined was the impact of VAB on the quality of the surgical treatment.

RESULTS

Stereotactic VABs performed with an 11-gauge device showed an underestimation rate of 23.8% for atypical ductal or lobular hyperplasia (AH). For ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) the underestimation rate was 31% and the underestimation rate for lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) was 14%. Only 38.2% of the patients with non-palpable lesions (201/525) were treated surgically and only 4% (20/504) of the patients underwent more than one surgical intervention. The VAB underestimation caused mistakes in the planning of the surgical therapy in only 9 out of 201 interventions (4.4%).

CONCLUSIONS

This study confirms the efficacy of the VAB procedure in the diagnosis of non-palpable breast lesions and demonstrates its usefulness in therapeutic surgical planning. VAB treatment allows for the reduction of the number of surgical procedures required to diagnose and treat non-palpable breast lesions.
