  • Sentinel node detection with 99mTc phytate alone is satisfactory for cervical cancer patients undergoing radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Ogawa, Shinji; Kobayashi, Hiroaki; Amada, Satoshi; Yahata, Hideaki; Sonoda, Kenzo; Abe, Koichiro; Baba, Shingo; Sasaki, Masayuki; Kaku, Tsunehisa; Wake, Norio // International Journal of Clinical Oncology;Feb2010, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p52 

    If the sentinel-lymph-node (SLN) concept is valid in cervical cancer, most patients could avoid pelvic lymphadenectomy when absence of metastasis is intraoperatively confirmed in the SLN. We assessed feasibility and accuracy of SLN detection using 99mTc phytate in patients with cervical cancer....
