GONZALEZ M, Paulina et al. DIRECTIONAL VACUUM-ASSISTED STEREOTACTIC BREAST BIOPSY: A 2-YEAR EXPERIENCE. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.3, pp.154-157. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082008000300009.

Introduction: Directional vacuum-assisted stereotactic breast biopsy (DVAB), represents an ex-cellent method for obtaining pathological diagnosis, being in many cases an alternative to surgery. Objec-tives: To present our 2-year experience in DVAB at the University of Chile's Clinical Hospital. Materials and methods: a descriptive retrospective study of DVAB was conducted in our Hospital from March 2005 to November 2007. Morphology of lesions, BI-RADS classification, pathology reports, complications as well as epidemiológica! data were recorded. Results: We included 79 patients with 95 lesions. Mean age 55 years. Of the 95 biopsies, 95.7% were microcal-cifications. The sensitivity was 92.8% and specificity 100%. The positive predictive valué was 100%, while negative PVwas 98.7%, with 8% of subestimation and complication rate of 3,1%. Conclusions: Our results confirm the advantages of said procedure in ourCenter, proving DVAB as highly reliable, with good histological correlation and minimal complications.
