Reported in this paper is the use of a carbon-lipiodol suspension for presurgical staining lymphography which was applied to carcinomata colli uteri and corporis uteri. The suspension could not be prepared until permission had been obtained from the National Drug Expert Committee. Better colour contrast representation of the femoral and iliacal lymph nodes during the operation was thus achieved, and, consequently, surgical radicality was substantially improved. The approach proved less expensive and tedious than previous methods used for colour representation of lymph nodes in the minor pelvis. The dye used did not cause any complications. The advantages of the method are discussed. General application seems to be commendable, following further testing.
