ALMANAC

A clinical trial of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) versus complete axillary clearance for patients with operable early stage breast cancer; it concluded that SNLB is associated with reduced arm morbidity and better quality of life than complete axillary clearance, and is the treatment of choice for patients who have early stage breast cancer with clinically negative nodes.
