abstract

  • Isolated paraaortic nodal metastasis in the setting of negative pelvic nodes occurs in approximately 1% of surgically staged endometrial cancer cases. This low rate seems consistent for low- and high-grade lesions. Future studies looking at the incidence of isolated paraaortic nodal metastasis in the setting of negative sentinel pelvic nodes are warranted.
