The sentinel lymph node concept is meeting with steadily growing interest and is being extended to the different sites of the primaries. In addition, the concept is being applied in an increasingly sophisticated manner. The practical application of the sentinel node concept is evaluated in this book. The first part of the book describes the function and use of the nuclear medicine equipment, the tracers used, colloid solutions and modern developments in histological and immunohistochemical lymph node investigations, as well as possible pitfalls. Get this from a library! The sentinel lymph node concept. [Alfred J Schauer;] -- "In this book the practical application of the sentinel node concept is evaluated from the points of view of pathology, radiodiagnosis and nuclear medicine diagnostics, surgical treatment and.

Background: Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping for melanoma and breast cancer has greatly enhanced the identification of micrometastases in many patients, thereby upstaging a .

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm by: The sentinel lymph node (SLN) concept was first applied to patients with melanoma, a type of skin cancer that can be cured if diagnosed early, but is deadly when the disease has spread beyond the primary tumor. The SLN concept proposed that the primary tumor drained into one or more "first" or "sentinel" LNs, and then drained secondarily into. The concept of the sentinel lymph node. Cabanas RM(1). Author information: (1)Victory Memorial Hospital, N.Y.N.Y., USA. Lymphangiograms performed via direct cannulation of lymphatic ducts demonstrate drainage of the lymph into a specific lymph node center, the so-called SLN. Contrast materials such as lipiodol, injected directly into the tissue Cited by:
A sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a procedure in which the sentinel lymph node is identified, removed, and examined to determine whether cancer cells are present. It is used in people who have already been diagnosed with cancer. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy has been increasingly used in the management of early-stages cervical cancer instead of systematic pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND). The aim of this article is to give a critical overview of key aspects related to this concept, such as a necessity for reliable detection of micrometastases (MIC) in SLN and the requirements for SLN pathologic ultrastaging, low Cited by: 9. With interest we have read this review article describing the current knowledge and unanswered questions concerning the sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy concept in cervical cancer (Cibula and McCluggage, ).The authors emphasize that SLN biopsy without additional pelvic lymph node (LN) dissection is an unreliable method of LN staging if pathological ultrastaging of the SLN is Cited by: 2. The process is also referred to as “Sentinel node biopsy” or “Sentinel Lymph Node Dissection”. Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy in Breast Cancer It is a comparatively new technique used in breast cancer and helps exactly identify the first few lymph nodes (“sentinel nodes”) into which a .
