Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy with ICG Dye in Ahmednagar

In the field of cancer treatment, early detection and accurate staging are vital for successful outcomes. For patients battling cervical and endometrial cancer, a groundbreaking technology known as Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) with Indocyanine Green (ICG) dye has emerged as a game-changer. Dr. Hrishikesh Pandit’s Pandit Hospital in Ahmednagar is at the forefront of offering this cutting-edge procedure, revolutionizing cancer care and improving patients’ lives.

Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy with ICG Dye in Ahmednagar

Understanding Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) with ICG Dye:

Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to assess whether cancer has spread to the nearby lymph nodes, a crucial factor in determining the stage of cervical and endometrial cancers. Traditionally, a complete lymph node dissection was performed, resulting in potential complications. However, with SLNB, only the “sentinel” nodes, the first nodes that the cancer cells are likely to reach, are removed and examined.

The use of Indocyanine Green (ICG) dye further elevates the precision of SLNB. ICG is a fluorescent dye that selectively accumulates in the sentinel lymph nodes, making them glow under near-infrared light. This allows surgeons to accurately identify and remove these nodes with utmost precision, reducing the need for extensive lymph node removal.

  • Enhanced Accuracy: SLNB with ICG dye offers highly accurate results, ensuring that any affected lymph nodes are promptly identified and treated, while minimizing unnecessary removal of healthy nodes.
  • Minimally Invasive: Compared to traditional lymph node dissection, SLNB is a minimally invasive procedure, resulting in reduced surgical trauma, quicker recovery, and lower risk of complications.
  • Tailored Treatment: Accurate staging through SLNB helps oncologists develop personalized treatment plans, optimizing the chances of successful outcomes. Plus there is no prognostic difference between complete pelvic lymphadenectomy and Sentinel lymphadenectomy
  • Improved Quality of Life: SLNB’s precision leads to a lower risk of lymphedema, a common complication associated with lymph node removal, thereby improving patients’ post-surgery quality of life.
