OBJECTIVE This retrospective study aimed to compare the sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping results of methylene blue (MB) and indocyanine green (ICG) in women with early-stage endometrial or cervical cancer. METHODS From August 2011 to March 2015, all consecutive patients with stage I endometrial or cervical cancer who underwent SLN mapping with(More)
To compare the detection rate (DR) and bilateral optimal mapping (OM) of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in women with endometrial and cervical cancer using indocyanine green (ICG) versus the standard technetium-99m radiocolloid (99mTc) radiotracer plus methylene or isosulfan blue, or blue dye alone. From October 2010 to May 2015, 163 women with stage I(More)
Indocyanine green (ICG) represents a feasible alternative to the more traditional methods of sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping, and interest in this promising tracer is growing. This report outlines our experience with ICG in a minimally invasive laparoscopic approach in women with endometrial cancer and cervical cancer using the Storz SPIES ICG(More)
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping is emerging as an effective method for surgical staging of different gynecologic malignancies. Near-infrared (NIR) technology using a fluorescent dye such as indocyanine green (ICG) represents an interesting and feasible method for SLN mapping even in traditional open surgeries by applying video telescope operating(More)
Late rupture of external iliac artery pseudo-aneurysm is an uncommon complication in patients who undergo extensive gynecologic radical surgeries. A 28-year-old woman with stage IB cervical cancer underwent pelvic lymphadenectomy and extrafascial trachelectomy. Two months after surgery, massive bleeding from ruptured pseudo-aneurysm of the external iliac(More)
OBJECTIVE Fusiform aneurysms of the A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) are exceptional, with only 15 reported cases. This article presents an additional case treated by microsurgical trapping. The aim is to discuss the treatment of these aneurysms based on the aneurysm morphology and the anatomy of the ACA complex. CASE REPORT A 52-year-old(More)
The aim of this study was to compare technetium radiocolloid (Tc99m) + blue dye (BD) versus Indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescent dye in terms of the overall detection rate and bilateral sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping in patients with endometrial carcinoma. Patients from five European centers with apparently confined clinical stage I endometrial cancer(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping in women with cervical cancer stage > IB1 (tumor > 2 cm) by using indocyanine green (ICG) versus the standard radioisotope technetium 99m radiocolloid (Tc99m) radiotracer ± blue-dye technique. DESIGN European multicenter, retrospective observational study (Canadian Task Force Classification(More)
