  • The All but Forgotten Mascagni-Sappey Pathway: Learning from Immediate Lymphatic Reconstruction. [Journal Article]
    J Reconstr Microsurg 2019Johnson AR, Bravo MG, … Singhal D
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, variable drainage of the lateral upper arm to the axillary bed was noted. This study is the first to provide a description of intraoperative findings, demonstrating variable drainage patterns of upper extremity lymphatics to the axilla. Moreover, we noted that the lateral- and medial-upper arm lymphosomes have mutually exclusive pathways draining to the axilla. Further study of lymphatic anatomy variability may elucidate the pathophysiology of lymphedema development and influence approaches to immediate lymphatic reconstruction.
  • Is the frozen section examination for sentinel lymph node necessary in early breast cancer patients? [Journal Article]
    Ann Surg Treat Res 2019; 97(2):49-57Yoon KH, Park S, … Park BW
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most patients were not indicated for axillary lymph node dissection. Some patients may show transition in their permanent pathology due to the size of the metastatic node. However, the false-negative results of FSE for SLNs based on the size of the metastatic node did not change our practice. Therefore, intraoperative FSE for SLN should not be routinely performed for all breast cancer patients.
