This review assessed the ability of minimally invasive and noninvasive tests to assess the groin node status in women with squamous cell vulvar cancer. It concluded that sentinel node identification using 99m-Tc is the most promising test. These conclusions appear reliable, but since some details about the analysis and participants were not reported they should be interpreted with caution.

The management of myeloma is complex and challenging. It increasingly involves the use of expensive drugs. The guideline will aim to raise standards nationally while allowing clinical flexibility and defining a common pathway for patients at various stages of their illness, and of different ages and levels of fitness. Although a consistent approach to management is desirable, it needs to reflect the very different groups of patients with myeloma from the fit and suitable for transplant, fairly fit but not suitable for transplant to patients who are extremely frail and/or unwell.
