Comparison of two intraoperative examination methods for the diagnosis of sentinel lymph node metastasis in clinically early stage endometrial cancer: A Turkish Gynecologic Oncology Group Study (TRSGO-SLN-003)

In the last decade, sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping has become an alternative option for evaluating lymphatic status in endometrial cancer (1). However, some issues need to be clarified. It is likely that metastatic lymph nodes may be left behind if only the SLN is taken and non-SLN involvement rate is approximately 60%, in the presence of macrometastasis in SLNs (2,3).
