Axillary Reverse Mapping in Preventing Lymphedema (Swelling) in Patients With Breast Cancer

Research Question:
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

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.
