Ferlay J, Soerjomataram I, Dikshit R, Eser S, Mathers C, Rebelo M, et al. The sentinel lymph node dissection techniques rely on the principle that by detecting the primary nodal landing sites where tumor cells would spread by following the lymphatic pathway and by analyzing if there is a tumor invasion in these site a limited and less invasive lymph node dissection could be performed, thereby reducing the morbidity caused by an extensive lymph node dissection. The technique is feasible in PCa patients and Holl et al. A study analyzing intermediate and high risk PCa, reported that 18F-FDG PET had a sensitivity of 80% and a positive predictive value (PPV) of 87% for detection of primary lesion in case of Gleason score ≥7 (34). doi: 10.1016/j.eururo.2015.04.034. (2008) 53:118–25. Both studies concluded that the combination of tracer improves the detection rate and the ICG added the advantage of visualizing the lymphatic vessels in real time.
