Abstract

The authors evaluated the advantages obtained utilizing FNAB with ultrasound in the needle aspiration of breast cysts. Echography can guide the aspiration up to its end in an effective and localized way. Cytologic examination of the cystic fluid confirmed the benign nature of the cyst. The association of needle aspiration and guided echography was related to a low number of relapses (19.8%). Among these relapses some risk factors have been found as well as a correlation between cystic fluid cytologic examination and relapses incidence has been determined.
