Abstract

Objective: To describe the results of a submammary incision for the removal of impalpable, mammographically diagnosed lesions.Design: Open study.Setting: District hospital.Subjects: 8 patients with deep, impalpable, mammographically suspicious lesions.Interventions: Excision biopsy by the submammary approach.Main outcome measures: Complete excision judged radiologically and histologically, and cosmetic result.Results: All lesions were completely excised both radiologically and histologically. Three patients had ductal carcinoma in situ and five had benign microcalcification. Cosmetic results were excellent in all cases.Conclusion: The incision gives excellent results after excision biopsy of deep or peripheral lesions of the breast, but is contraindicated if invasive carcinoma is suspected.
