Brief Summary:
Evaluation of removal of Sentinel lymph nodes only for detection of pelvic lymph node metastases in high risk and low risk endometrial cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sentinel Lymph Node Endometrial Cancer Lymphedema Procedure: Injection of tracer ( ICG) and detection of sentinel lymph nodes Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Consecutive patients with- and low risk endometrial cancer will be approached for eligibility for inclusion in a study evaluating the detection rates of pelvic metastatic disease by detection and removal of Sentinel lymph nodes only, i.e with no further lymphadenectomy.

A re-staging will be performed in case of metastatic Sentinel lymph nodes to guide adjuvant treatment.

The detection rate will be evaluated from a non-inferiority perspective against the expected rate of nodal metastases based on detailed final histological data.

Adverse events related the intervention ( Injection of tracer (ICG) and removal of sentinel nodes), time for the intervention, and an objective evaluation of lymphatic complications (lymphoedema) will be performed in addition to the use of a validated lymphoedema QOL questionnaire.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SLN only
Pelvic SLN's defined by ICG injected cervically
Procedure: Injection of tracer ( ICG) and detection of sentinel lymph nodes
Pelvic SLN's defined by ICG injected cervically




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Detection rate of pelvic metastatic disease in endometrial cancer [ Time Frame: 3 years from start inclusion with an interim analysis after 150 patients ]
    The detection rate will be evaluated from a non-inferiority perspective based on a null-hypothesis of 4% less than an expected rate of 12% nodal metastases

  2. Operative time used for the study intervention ( injection of ICG and identification and removal of sentinel lymph nodes [ Time Frame: 3 years from start inclusion ]
    Exact measurements of time allocated for the SLN procedure as such.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of lymphedema after removal of sentinel lymph nodes [ Time Frame: 4 years including at least one year follow up ]
    Objective measurement lymphedema defined by of leg volume before and after surgery

  2. intraoperative adverse events associated with the study intervention [ Time Frame: 3 years from start inclusion or after 150 patients if study stopped at interim analysis ]
    Detailed registration of adverse events associated with the SLN procedure as such
