Distinct arm from breast axillary dissection (AD), or axillary reverse mapping (ARM), involves retrieving all breast related nodes while leaving intact the main lymphatic drainage chain of the upper limb. This represents a new surgical technique that is the focus of recent surgical interest.
Distinct arm from breast axillary dissection (AD), or axillary reverse mapping (ARM), involves retrieving all breast related nodes while leaving intact the main lymphatic drainage chain of the upper limb. This represents a new surgical technique that is the focus of recent surgical interest. The assumption is that the sentinel node (SN) of the upper limb is different from the SN of the breast and that it is uninvolved after metastatic involvement of the axillary nodes in relation to the breast. During the ARM procedure, it is necessary to use an injection of a lymphatic tracer into the upper limb in order to visualize the lymphatic arm drainage.The ultimate goal for ARM procedure is to reduce the rate of lymphedema in N+ patients requiring an AD.

Total mastectomy with axillary node dissection, but with preservation of the pectoral muscles.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Arteries originating from the subclavian or axillary arteries and distributing to the anterior thoracic wall, mediastinal structures, diaphragm, pectoral muscles, mammary gland and the axillary aspect of the chest wall.
Removal of the breast, pectoral muscles, axillary lymph nodes, and associated skin and subcutaneous tissue.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
