AXillary Surgery After NeoAdjuvant Treatment

A prospective multicenter cohort study to evaluate different surgical methods of axillary staging (sentinel lymph node biopsy, targeted axillary dissection, axillary dissection) in clinically node-positive breast cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy

 

 

Based on the lack of sufficient evidence and discrepancies between different national and institutional standards, EUBREAST decided to initiate a prospective cohort study as an international project that aims at comparatively evaluating data on axillary staging after neoadjuvant therapy. Since AXSANA aims at analyzing the clinical landscape of axillary surgery, study sites participating in the AXSANA are free to use any technique they choose.
