Axillary Reverse Mapping in Preventing Lymphedema (Swelling) in Patients With Breast
How well does axillary reverse mapping work to prevent lymphedema in patients with
breast cancer who are undergoing dissection of lymph nodes in the armpit?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
This phase III trial studies how well axillary reverse mapping, a visualization technique
with a blue dye, works in preventing lymphedema (a swelling condition) in patients
with breast cancer that are undergoing dissection of lymph nodes in the armpit. Axillary
reverse mapping may help to preserve the lymph node drainage system around the breast
so as to prevent lymphedema after surgery.
