PURPOSE This study was designed to assess the feasibility of a combined colorimetric and radioisotopic technique in the detection of the sentinel lymph node in colorectal cancer. METHODS This prospective dual-center study included 64 patients. Using endoscopy on D0, a radiolabeled colloid was injected into the peritumoral submucosa, followed by a… CONTINUE READING
