Background: The aim of this preliminary retrospective study was to assess the feasibility and accuracy of Indocyanine Green (ICG) sentinel node (SLN) sampling using a laparoscopic camera during open endometrial cancer surgery. Material and methods: Retrospective study. Fourteen women with endometrial cancer, not fit for a complete laparoscopic staging, underwent SLN mapping using the IMAGE1 camera during open surgery. Results: The median age of patients was 67 (range 33–86) years. Median BMI was 31 (range 23–58). Mean operative time 157.5 minutes and hospital stay three days. The overall detection rate of SLN mapping was 93%. Bilateral detection was 86%. No post-operative short or long-term complications were observed. Conclusions: Real-time NIR technology supported by the IMAGE1 S is a reliable system and represents a promising method for SLN mapping in selected cases with EC and severe surgical risks, during 48 traditional open approaches. The use of laparoscopy ICG in open surgery seems to be a feasible and useful tool for the detection of SLN in endometrial cancer patients with intraoperative and/or postoperative high morbidity risk. It represents a valid alternative to robotic surgery, particularly in countries and centers where the robotic platform or SPY system for open surgery are not available.

Abstract

Background: The aim of this preliminary retrospective study was to assess the feasibility and accuracy of Indocyanine Green (ICG) sentinel node (SLN) sampling using a laparoscopic camera during open endometrial cancer surgery. Material and methods: Retrospective study. Fourteen women with endometrial cancer, not fit for a complete laparoscopic staging, underwent SLN mapping using the IMAGE1 camera during open surgery. Results: The median age of patients was 67 (range 33–86) years. Median BMI was 31 (range 23–58). Mean operative time 157.5 minutes and hospital stay three days. The overall detection rate of SLN mapping was 93%. Bilateral detection was 86%. No post-operative short or long-term complications were observed. Conclusions: Real-time NIR technology supported by the IMAGE1 S is a reliable system and represents a promising method for SLN mapping in selected cases with EC and severe surgical risks, during 48 traditional open approaches. The use of laparoscopy ICG in open surgery seems to be a feasible and useful tool for the detection of SLN in endometrial cancer patients with intraoperative and/or postoperative high morbidity risk. It represents a valid alternative to robotic surgery, particularly in countries and centers where the robotic platform or SPY system for open surgery are not available.
