Abstract

The study included 44 patients with Stage la, - lb, cervical cancer who underwent organ-preserving surgery (transabdominal trachelectomy). To visualize sentinel lymph nodes - lymphoscintigraphy with injection of radioactive lymphotropic isotope - 99mTc-labelled nanocolloid was injected a day before surgery. Intraoperative identification of sentinel lymph nodes using gamma probe was carried out to assess, which lymph nodes had taken up the radionuclide. Detection of sentinel lymph nodes in cervical cancer patients could accurately predict the pelvic lymph node status, assess the stage of the disease, individualize the extent of surgery and determine indications for organ-preserving surgery.
