Hook Wire Guided Wide Local Excision

A wide local excision is the surgical removal of a tumor, mass or suspicious tissue along with a surrounding margin of normal tissue. Tumors within the breast may be located under image guidance and marked by inserting a wire into the breast tissue with a hook at its tip in the region of the abnormality. This helps to guide your surgeon in performing the local excision. Hook wire guided wide local excision is usually performed on breast lesions that cannot be clinically detected or felt but are identified on imaging studies.
