Brief Summary:
This study has been designed to validate a non-radioactive method to identify the sentinel lymph node using a superparamagnetic iron-oxide (SPIO) tracer respect to the traditional isotopic method. Both methods are used in every included patient and each patient is its own control.

Condition or disease
Melanoma Stage Sentinel Lymph Node

Detailed Description:
  • Injection of the isotopic tracer in standard form and in the usual preoperative period (hours-day).
  • Identical injection in three-four punctures of 2 mL of Sienna+ ® and local massage of 5-10 minutes.
  • Optional: colorant injection in standard form. Local massage of 5-10 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes: transcutaneous measurement with SentiMag®
  • Valuing territories (lymphoscintigraphy information?)
  • Surgical identification measures:

    1. st with SentiMag®
    2. nd with gamma detection probe
  • Ex vivo check and HRD record

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 186 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. SN detection [ Time Frame: During surgery ]
    Detection of potential sentinel nodes using both methods (isotopic and ferromagnetic tracers). Máximum register of isotopic and ferromagnetic measurement will be the main criteria.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. SN agreement [ Time Frame: During surgery ]
    Agreement in isotopic and ferromagnetic sentinel node identification. Measurement criteria will be coincidence in the same node (or nodes).

Study Population
Patients with cutaneous malignant melanoma with indication for sentinel lymph node biopsy in staging.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients (>18 years of age),
  • with diagnosis of cutaneous melanoma and
  • in which SLNB is indicated as a staging method, and
  • with cN0 result after clinical-echographic-cytohistological evaluation.

Exclusion Criteria:
