Liquid Marker for Preoperative Breast Localisation
The importance of accurate preoperative localization of mammographically detected lesions has been proved.
There are several mammographically guided methods, all with their advocates.
Wire dislogement and widespread diffusion of the liquid marker into surrounding tissue are well known disadvantages connected with the above methods The need for a stable marker has been pursued through a special biocompatible charcoal powder suspension specifi cally treated for this purpose.
CARBO-REP® is available in pre-filled 2 ml vials, easy to inject into the chosen site to mark the path to the lesion for the surgeon.
One more interesting advocate of CARBO-REP® is the possibility to indicate the exact location of the site of initial biopsy in instance of the subsequent development of a mammographically occult cancer in proximity to the initial biopsy site.
