英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Objective(#br)To describe the anatomy of uterine lymphatic drainage following cervical or fundal tracer injection to enable standardization of a pelvic sentinel lymph node (SLN) concept in endometrial cancer (EC).(#br)Methods(#br)A prospective consecutive study of women with EC was conducted. A fluorescent dye (Indocyanine green) was injected into the cervix ( n =60) or the uterine fundus ( n =30). A systematic trans- and retroperitoneal mapping of uterine lymphatic drainage was performed. Positions of the pelvic SLNs, defined by afferent lymph vessels, and lymph node metastases were compared.(#br)Results(#br)Two consistent lymphatic pathways with pelvic SLNs were identified irrespective of injection...
