Indocyanine green utility for sentinel lymph node biopsy in early stage endometrial cancer. A literature review

Abstract: Applying the concept of sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer has been associated with several benefits such as providing an adequate ultra-staging of the malignant process, identifying the aberrant routes of lymphatic spread as well as the micrometastatic lymph nodes. Due to all these benefits in association with an acceptable rate of false negative results the method has been widely accepted. In order to maximize the efficacy of the method especially in cases submitted to laparoscopic approach, recent studies have demonstrated the utility of indocyanine green as a tracer for detecting the sentinel lymph nodes in early stage endometrial cancer. This is a literature review of the most recent papers evaluating the safety and feasibility of the method.
