Abstract

Sentinel lymph node mapping allows accurate pathological staging for patients with cutaneous melanoma and clinically normal regional nodes. Early technical advances facilitated its widespread acceptance by surgeons. Morbidity as a result of the procedure is well established, but the potential benefit of providing powerful prognostic information outweighs these risks in most patients with intermediate-risk disease.
