Pathologic ultrastaging improves micrometastasis detection in sentinel lymph nodes during endometrial cancer staging
Adenocarcinoma, Clear Cell
Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
Sentinel lymph node mapping with pathologic ultrastaging in endometrial carcinoma detects additional low-volume metastases (4.5%) that would otherwise go undetected with routine evaluations. Our data support the incorporation of pathologic ultrastaging of SLNs in endometrial carcinoma with any degree of myoinvasion. The oncologic significance of low-volume nodal metastases requires long-term follow-up.
