NCT00987051

  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relevance of sentinel node in endometrial cancer. Sentinel node is thought to reflect the status of lymph node. Only 10 to 20% of women with endometrial cancer exhibit lymph node metastasis hence systematic lymphadenectomy is questionable. In breast cancer, melanoma and vulvar cancer, sentinel node has emerged as an alternative to complete lymphadenectomy.

Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Patients with endometrial cancer
Procedure: Detection of sentinel node
Coelioscopy or laparotomy (based on the tumor size) after a colorimetric tracer injection
Other Name: Detection of sentinel node

Detailed Description:

To investigate the relevance of sentinel node in endometrial cancer. Sentinel node is though to reflect the status of lymph node. Only 10 to 20% of women with endometrial cancer exhibit lymph node metastasis hence systematic lymphadenectomy is questionable. In breast cancer, melanoma and vulvar cancer, sentinel node has emerged as an alternative to complete lymphadenectomy. The objective of our trial is to validate the concept of sentinel node in endometrial cancer.
