I. To evaluate the protective benefit to performing lymphovenous bypass (LVB) surgery at the time of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) for patients that are high risk for developing breast-cancer related lymphedema (LE) of the upper extremity.
I. Compare the medical outcomes for patients receiving LVB surgery with those receiving standard surgery without the intervention.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 groups.
GROUP I: Patients receive indocyanine green intravenously (IV) and undergo lymphangiography, then undergo LVB at the time of ALND.
GROUP II: Patients do not receive indocyanine green, undergo lymphangiography, nor undergo LVB at the time of ALND.
After completion of study, patients are followed up at 2 weeks, and then at 6, 12, and 18 months.

Experimental: Group I (LVB)
Patients receive indocyanine green IV and undergo lymphangiography, then undergo LVB at the time of ALND.
Drug: Indocyanine Green
Other Name: ICG
Other Name: Lymphography
Procedure: Lymphovenous Bypass
Other Name: Lymphovenous Anastomosis
No Intervention: Group II (no intervention)
Patients do not receive indocyanine green, undergo lymphangiography, nor undergo LVB at the time of ALND.
- Volumetric diagnosis of lymphedema [ Time Frame: 18 months ]If the limb volume change, meets the criteria for a diagnosis of lymphedema at any time (5 percent, change), then the patient receives a diagnosis of lymphedema.
- Incidence of lymphedema [ Time Frame: 18 months ]Will compare the incidence of lymphedema after mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection surgery between two surgical techniques.
