Sentinel lymph node biopsy for gastrointestinal cancers

Item Type:Review
Title:Sentinel lymph node biopsy for gastrointestinal cancers
Creators Name:Bembenek, A. and Gretschel, S. and Schlag, P.M.
Abstract:Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in gastrointestinal-(GI)-tract cancer is not yet of clinical relevance. Nevertheless, the results in the upper GI-tract promise to be helpful to individualize the indication for surgical therapy. SLNB in colon cancer still fails to show high validity to predict the nodal status, but may be helpful to clarify the prognostic role of micrometastases/isolated tumor cells. In anal cancer SLNB is able to guide the indication for groin irradiation.
