Abstract

Non-wire breast lesion localizations offer several advantages, including dissociation of the breast localization procedure from the operative schedule, greater flexibility to the surgeon when choosing operative approach, and a better overall patient experience. The options for non-wire localization have variable effects on patients, pathologists, surgeons, radiologists and support personnel and cost varies considerably. This review will update the reader on two newer options available for non-wire localization, point out factors to assess when considering use of a non-wire localization device, and provide a table allowing comparison of multiple features between many of the more popular devices currently available.
