Axillary Reverse Mapping in Preventing Lymphedema in Patients With Breast Cancer Undergoing Axillary Lymph Node Dissection

This phase III trial studies how well axillary reverse mapping works in preventing lymphedema
in patients with breast cancer undergoing axillary lymph node dissection. Axillary reverse
mapping may help to preserve the lymph node drainage system around the breast so as to
prevent lymphedema after surgery.

Intervention

Axillary Lymph Node Dissection, Isosulfan Blue, Mapping, Quality-of-Life Assessment, Questionnaire Administration

Condition

Breast Cancer Stage I, Breast Cancer Stage II, Breast Cancer Stage III
