Sentinel Concept in Early Stage Cervical Cancer

2014-07-23 21:08:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Aim of present study is to inspect, if the removal alone of sentinel lymph nodes in women with early Cervix Carcinoma lead to, at equal length, overall survival like entire systematic dissection of lymph node and at the same time is accompanied with a considerably reduction of associated intra and post operative complications of lymph node dissection.

For this purpose were randomized about 1200 patients with histological assured cervix carcinoma in stages FIGO 1a1 L1 V0, FIGO 1a2 L0 or L1 V0, FIGO1b1 L0 or L1 V0= 2 cm randomization. In the branch A takes place exclusively dissection sentinel lymph node, in the branch B takes place entire pelvic lymph node dissection. Afterwards takes place in tumor free lymph nodes the removal of uterus by a radical hysterectomy or, in presence of the wish of children, radical trachelectomy. In affected tumoural lymph nodes takes place systematic pelvic and peri aortic lymph node dissection followed by primary Radiological Chemiotherapy.

Primary end point is overall survival; this for both groups must be equal. Secondary end point is peri- and postoperative weakness inclusive life quality, the benefits for women must be evident with sentinel- lymph node dissection such as controls of local tumors, don't have to show for both groups any significant difference.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.

Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)

Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.
