Objective: Conflicting data exists on the impact of Body Mass Index (BMI) on sentinel lymph-node (SLN) detection. The primary study endpoint was to investigate the impact of obesity on overall detection rate, bilateral mapping, and mapping failure rate of SLN. In addition, we evaluated possible differences in terms of surgical management and “empty-packet dissection” rate among obese and non-obese patients. Methods: Multicenter, propensity-matched, retrospective study. Patients with apparent early-stage endometrial cancer were included. Study population was divided into women with BMI

Abstract

Objective: Conflicting data exists on the impact of Body Mass Index (BMI) on sentinel lymph-node (SLN) detection. The primary study endpoint was to investigate the impact of obesity on overall detection rate, bilateral mapping, and mapping failure rate of SLN. In addition, we evaluated possible differences in terms of surgical management and “empty-packet dissection” rate among obese and non-obese patients. Methods: Multicenter, propensity-matched, retrospective study. Patients with apparent early-stage endometrial cancer were included. Study population was divided into women with BMI
