The cornerstone of treatment for endometrial carcinoma is total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophoprectomy. Pelvic lymphadenectomy, with or without para-aortic lymphadenectomy, plays an important role in the surgical staging of endometrial carcinoma, and provides more accurate prognostic information.

The presence of pelvic lymph node metastases is without doubt the most significant prognostic factor that determines recurrences and survival of women with early-stage cervical cancer. To avoid the un...
Sentinel lymph-node biopsy has reduced the need for extensive axillary surgery for staging. It still exposes women to associated morbidity. Risk models that use clinical and pathology information of t...
We here describe a case report of a positive precaval sentinel lymph node with negative pelvic sentinel lymph node in a patient with endometrial cancer. A 45-years-old woman was diagnosed with a grade...
Pelvic lymphadenectomy procedure is included as part of the standard protocol of radical hysterectomy for women with early-stage cervical cancer (Stage IA to IB1). However, an important sequel to lymp...
The presence of lymph node metastases is one of the most important factors in breast cancer prognosis. The most common strategy to assess the regional lymph node status is the sentinel lymph node proc...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the feasibility of detecting the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients with early invasive cervical cancer using a combined radioisotope...
The present study aims at investigating the feasibility, the detection rate and the negative predictive value of sentinel node in predicting the presence or absence of lymph node metastasi...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as lymph node mapping and sentinel lymph node identification, performed before and during surgery, may improve the ability to detect lymph node metas...
Early gastric cancer is defined as gastric cancer that only invades mucosal or submucosal layer. The 5-year survival rate of gastric cancer can exceed 90% due to appropriate treatment. The...
The diagnostic value of sentinel lymph node biopsy in early-stage cervical cancer has been well studied. However, there were no randomized controlled study on comparing the long-term outco...
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
Organisms used to determine measurable environmental risks or hazards to human health and or well-being, thereby serving as advance or early warning signs of impending danger to humans. Examples of sentinel species are monkeys, guinea pigs, and the fabled canary in the coal mine.
The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
