Recommendations for staging and managing the axilla

Strengths and weaknesses of evidence

Eleven randomised controlled trials were identified, with information on both staging and treatment of the axilla. Some of these trials provided long-term data (maximum 25 years follow-up22).

Much of the information on the management of the axilla was from non-randomised trials including studies on diagnostic accuracy, prognostic studies, observational studies and case series. Most of these trials were retrospective and were often small, with varied topics and results reported.
