The purpose of this study is to learn if a surgical technique called intraoperative lymphatic mapping can accurately identify the lymph node that is at greatest risk if endometrial or cervical cancer spreads to the lymph nodes.
Early cervical cancer is usually treated by removing the cervix, tissue around the cervix, and the upper vagina. If needed, the uterus is also removed. The treatment also includes removing lymph nodes from the pelvis. Endometrial cancer is usually treated by removing the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
The treatment also includes removing lymph nodes from the pelvis.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Cervical Cancer Endometrial Cancer Cervical Carcinoma||Other: Lymphatic Mapping|
Patients with FIGO stage I endometrial cancer or patients with FIGO stage I-IIA invasive cervical cancer and who will be undergoing surgical management to include a lymphadenectomy.
↓ Injection of radioisotope and preoperative lymphoscintigraphy with Tc99m either the day before or on the day of surgery by the Nuclear Medicine Department.
↓ Intraoperative lymphatic mapping with blue dye and gamma probe.
↓ Hysterectomy, Radical hysterectomy and/or radical trachelectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy.

Intra-Operative Lymphatic Mapping
- To determine the feasibility of identifying the sentinel lymph node in patients with endometrial and invasive cervical cancer using a combination of radioisotope and blue dye. [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
- To determine the feasibility of locating sentinel nodes in the pelvis and/or paraaortic region with preoperative lymphoscintigraphy. [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
- To document the location of the sentinel nodes in patients with invasive cervical cancer. [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
