Encouraging results from our previous studies of sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping in colorectal cancer (CRC) prompted investigation of its feasibility and accuracy during laparoscopic colectomy for early CRC. Between 1996 and 2000, 14 patients with clinically localized colorectal neoplasms underwent colonoscopic tattooing of the primary site and SLN… (More)
