Magnetic resonance axillography for preoperative diagnosis of the axillopectoral muscle (langer’s axillary arch): a case report
- 70 Downloads
The axillary arch of Langer is the most common muscular variation in the axilla. Recognition of anatomic variations is important for surgeons to perform safe axillary surgery. We describe a case of a woman with breast cancer, in whom sentinel lymph node biopsy was successfully performed and the presence of this anomaly preoperatively diagnosed by magnetic resonance axillography.
