Saving the lymph nodes

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

We need improved imaging and staging techniques to identify metastatic disease in the lymph nodes. Once we are able to do this accurately, then we can save the lymph nodes. Until that time, however, gynecologic oncologists should give careful thought as to which nodes they choose to remove and how lymph node removal may affect short-term and long-term morbidity.
