This article reports a study on 36 cases of papilloma in lactiferous ducts that were treated with mammotome minimal invasive atherectomy during the year 2015 and the three-year post-surgery follow-up assessments. It compared the pros and cons of procedures with mammotome atherectomy and those with traditional methylene blue staining and localization wire guiding and showed that mammotome atherectomy has a marked advantage according to accuracy, degree of trauma, as well as in keeping the breast integrity and shape. Another advantage of mammotome atherectomy is that its sequelae is insignificant, since almost no cyst will be formed after the procedure. Its shortcoming lies in blood-stopping mechanism.
