Sentinel lymph node biopsy and ACOSOG-Z0011 criteria have modified axillary treatment in breast cancer surgery. We performed a systematic review of studies assessing the impact of axillary treatment on survival. The search showed 6891 potentially eligible items. Of them, 23 clinical trials and 12 meta-analyses published between 1980 and 2017 met the study criteria. The review revealed that axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) can be omitted in patients pN0 and pN1mic, without compromising survival. In patients pN1 it is proposed not to treat the axilla or replace ALND for axillary radiotherapy...

Lymph node status is one of the most important factors in determining prognosis and the need for adjuvant treatment in endometrial cancer (EMCA). Unfortunately, full lymphadenectomy bears significant surgical and postoperative risks. The majority of patients with clinical stage I disease will not have metastatic disease; thus, a full lymphadenectomy only increases morbidity in this population of patients. The use of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy has emerged as an alternative to complete lymphadenectomy in EMCA...

The aim of this study was to systematically evaluate the diagnostic value of the sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for cT1/T2N0 tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) patients. A comprehensive and systematic literature review was performed by searching the Embase and PubMed databases for English language articles published up to December 2016. The pooled overall sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection rate, sensitivity and negative predictive value (NPV) were used to evaluate the diagnostic value of SLNB which used neck dissection or follow-up as a reference test...

BACKGROUND: To estimate the accuracy of one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) assay as an intra-operative sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis in breast cancer. METHODS: PubMed, Cochrane Library and Web of Science databases were searched by two independent reviewers to retrieve literature with per-patient analysis. The deadline was up until December 2016. A meta-analysis was performed using STATA, Meta-Disc, and Revman software...

AIM: To evaluate whether contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)-guided core biopsy of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) could identify metastatic nodes preoperatively and reduce the number of surgical SLN biopsies in patients with breast cancer and normal axillary B-mode ultrasound; and to establish whether CEUS SLN identification and localisation is a viable alternative to standard lymphatic mapping using isotope and blue dye. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A search of several electronic databases was performed and identified studies were assessed using QUADAS-2 for methodological quality...

BACKGROUND: Dual-tracer-guided sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy may provide a promising diagnostic tool to assess accurately the status of lymph node metastasis in the surgical operation and assure the oncologic safety of the function or stomach preserving surgery. The diagnostic performance of this technology in recent studies varied. Thus, we conducted this meta-analysis. METHODS: This systematic review and meta-analysis was registered at the PROSPERO. Eligible studies were searched in the PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Knowledge, and Cochrane Library databases...

with interest I read the review about sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and wide local excision (WLE) compared to WLE alone for primary cutaneous melanoma written by Santos-Juanes J. et. al..(1) Authors took a heavy burden of work, however I worry that the authors took prematurely conclusions and their analysis leads to inadequate reasoning for a survival benefit in the SLNB group against the evidence of the data.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the predictive value of cervical lymph node metastasis through sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in patients with oral cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two authors independently searched the databases of PubMed, Cochrane central register of controlled trials, EMBASE, and CNKI to find the potential suitable diagnostic study related to SLNB.

My arguments regarding postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) for this case are based on the following 4 reasons: (1) high rate of local recurrence in the no PMRT group in the Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group meta-analysis on which the present guideline is based, (2) stage migration by sentinel node biopsy, (3) possible adverse events of radiotherapy, and (4) problems on extrapolation of data from western countries.

PURPOSE: New indications have been found for regional nodal irradiation (RNI) in breast cancer treatment, yet the relationship of RNI and lymphedema risk is uncertain. We sought to determine the association of RNI and lymphedema. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Scopus for articles in English on humans published from 1995 to 2015, using search terms breast neoplasm, treatment, and morbidity. Two investigators independently selected articles and extracted information, including manuscripts reporting incidence of lymphedema by radiation targets...

Oral cancers in India are very common. SLNB (sentinel lymph node biopsy) for the management of the cN0 neck provides proper staging with less morbidity. The study aims at assessment of the technical feasibility and accuracy of SLNB. Two by two table and Kappa statistic was used to compare SLN and END. In 14 cases out of 16 cases, SLN was identified. Sensitivity and specificity of 100 % were found. One hundred percent agreement was observed between SLN and END using kappa statistics. A meta-analysis of 19 studies showed 97...

Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence is safe and has a high detection rate for SLNs. However, the results of this novel technique are heterogeneous. The objective of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the ICG fluorescence method compared with the standard radioisotope (RI) method. All eligible studies were identified from 2005 through 2015. A proportion meta-analysis was performed using a fixed effects and/or random effects model based on the study heterogeneity...

BACKGROUND: Recent discussion has suggested that some cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with high risk of invasive disease may require sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). METHODS: Systematic literature review identified 48 studies (9,803 DCIS patients who underwent SLNB). Separate analyses for patients diagnosed preoperatively by core sampling and patients diagnosed postoperatively by specimen pathology were conducted to determine the percentage of patients with axillary nodal involvement...

BACKGROUND: The use of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) following neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in patients presenting with clinically positive lymph nodes remains controversial. METHODS: A computer-aided search of the literature regarding SLNB in clinically node-positive breast cancer treated with NAC was carried out to identify the false negative rate (FNR), sentinel lymph node identification rate (IR), and axillary pathological complete response (pCR). RESULTS: Nineteen articles were used in the analysis yielding 3,398 patients...

BACKGROUND: The standard for sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB), the dual technique (radiolabelled tracer and blue dye), has several drawbacks. A novel magnetic technique without these drawbacks has been evaluated in a number of clinical trials. It uses a magnetic tracer and a handheld magnetometer to identify and excise sentinel lymph nodes. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to assess the performance and utility of the magnetic in comparison to the standard technique...

BACKGROUND: With the increased use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in breast cancer, the timing of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has become increasingly important. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of SLNB for initially clinically node-negative breast cancer after NAC by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: We searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library from January 1, 1993 to November 30, 2015 for studies on initially clinically node-negative breast cancer patients who underwent SLNB after NAC followed by axillary lymph node dissection (ALND)...

BACKGROUND: Sentinel node biopsy (SNB) in recurrent breast cancer offers targeted axillary staging compared with axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) or no treatment. The evidence for lymphatic mapping in recurrent breast cancer is reviewed, focusing on aberrant drainage and its implications for patient management.
