Bottom Line: Sensitivity, specificity, and overall and bilateral detection rates were calculated and compared.SLNs were ninefold more likely to be affected by metastatic disease compared with NSLNs (p < 0.005).Overall detection rates were 83 and 95.5 % (p = nonsignificant), and bilateral detection rates were 61 and 95.5 % (p < 0.005), for Groups 1 and 2, respectively.

ABSTRACT

Background and purpose: (99)TC combined with blue-dye mapping is considered the best sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping technique in cervical cancer. Indocyanine green (ICG) with near infrared fluorescence imaging has been introduced as a new methodology for SLN mapping. The aim of this study was to compare these two techniques in the laparoscopic treatment of cervical cancer.

Methods: Medical records of patients undergoing laparoscopic SLN mapping for cervical cancer with either (99)Tc and patent blue dye (Group 1) or ICG (Group 2) from April 2008 until August 2012 were reviewed. Sensitivity, specificity, and overall and bilateral detection rates were calculated and compared.

Results: Fifty-eight patients were included in the study-36 patients in Group 1 and 22 patients in Group 2. Median tumor diameter was 25 and 29 mm, and mean SLN count was 2.1 and 3.7, for Groups 1 and 2, respectively. Mean non-SLN (NSLN) count was 39 for both groups. SLNs were ninefold more likely to be affected by metastatic disease compared with NSLNs (p < 0.005). Sensitivity and specificity were both 100 %. Overall detection rates were 83 and 95.5 % (p = nonsignificant), and bilateral detection rates were 61 and 95.5 % (p < 0.005), for Groups 1 and 2, respectively. In 75 % of cases, SLNs were located along the external or internal iliac nodal basins.

Conclusions: ICG SLN mapping in cervical cancer provides high overall and bilateral detection rates that compare favorably with the current standard of care.

Mentions: Overall SLN detection rates were 83 and 95.5 %, and bilateral SLN detection rates were 61 and 95.5 %, for Groups 1 and Group 2, respectively. Detection rates are presented in Fig. 2. In 22 % of cases, SLN detection was unilateral in Group 1; however, in one of these cases, secondary to the diagnosis of lymph node metastases at frozen section, the procedure was aborted and the other side of the pelvis was not assessed. The overall SLN detection rate did not differ between the two groups. A significantly higher bilateral detection rate was observed in Group 2 (p = 0.0201).Fig. 2
