Our aim was to determine the frequency of nonsentinel lymph node involvement of patients with operable triple negative breast cancer and with a positive sentinel lymph node, and to predict the likelihood of nonsentinel lymph node metastases in this cohort of patients by using 4 different nomograms. The accuracy of nomograms in patients for triple negative is yet to be determined.
