To evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of diagnosis using sentinel node (SN) biopsy in T1 gastric cancer, a multicenter trial was conducted by the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG). Sentinel node biopsy with indocyanine green (ICG) was performed in patients with T1 gastric cancer. Green-stained nodes (GNs), representing SNs, were removed first, and gastrectomy with lymphadenectomy was then performed. GNs in one plane (with the largest dimension) were histologically examined… CONTINUE READING
