BACKGROUND Nodal staging accuracy is important in the prognosis and selection of patients for chemotherapy. This prospective study aims to assess the feasibility and accuracy of the sentinel lymph node procedure (SNP) using radiocolloid and blue dye in colon carcinoma. METHODS In 56 patients, lymphatic mapping was accomplished by means of intraoperatively injecting patent blue and nanocoll subserosally around the tumour. Sentinel nodes (SNs) were harvested ex-vivo. Nodes were stained with H&E… CONTINUE READING
