COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • To understand the rationale of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) procedure in the treatment of female genital organ malignancies in the era of minimally invasive surgical oncology and individualization of therapeutic management
  • To master the surgical technique of SLN sampling, including anatomical landmarks of each genital organ’s specific lymphatic drainage
  • To be familiar with technical modalities, imaging techniques, and available tracers, including the role of fluorescence in the future of cancer surgery
  •  To be able to incorporate the results of SLN pathological assessment in the management of gynecologic malignancies
  • To perform hands-on practice on live tissue (mini-pigs) in order to shorten and secure the learning curve in clinical practice
