Abstract

Axillary lymph node dissection after the finding of a positive sentinel lymph node is a common clinical practice. A review is performed for the efficacy and morbidity of axillary lymph node dissection, the rationale for nonsurgical management of the axilla, and the efficacy, technical limitations, and toxicity of axillary radiation therapy; a management algorithm is then proposed based upon currently available prediction tools.
