Statistical equivalence was assessed by comparing the confidence interval of the RD and RR of the pathologic complete response in breast tissue and axillary lymph nodes
with the prespecified equivalence margins.

Comparison of sentinel lymph node biopsy alone and completion axillary lymph node
dissection for node-positive breast cancer.
Histopathological analysis was performed at the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine of the General Hospital Novi Pazar in order to examine the size and type of the tumor, disease stage, surgical techniques and complications, the age of the patients at the moment of the surgery and its correlation with the number of metastatic lymph nodes in the axilla and the tumor size, as well as the correlation of the tumor size with the number of metastases in the axillary lymph nodes

Due to the high prevalence of breast carcinoma and tuberculosis especially in Asia, the coexistence of breast carcinoma and axillary tuberculous lymphadenitis and concomitant tuberculosis and metastasis in axillary lymph nodes
has been reported without any radiological examination being performed, so histology and microbiology are essential [3, 4].
The risk of lymphedema after axillary lymph node
dissection is 18 to 20 percent, and approximately seven percent after sentinel lymph node biopsy," explains Dr.
For invasive breast cancer, these procedures may be accompanied by a sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node
dissection if needed.
