“…10 Our main complications were lymphocoele and lymphedema. The 1.8% lymphedema incidence was similar to the 1.7% lymphedema incidence found by Wrone et al 32 Allergie blue-dye anaphylaxis occurred in 0.3% which is slightly lower than the 0.7% in Leong et al experience. 33 However, the comparison is not completely valid as we used patent blue V while these authors used isosulfan (lymphazurine ).…”

“…This factor strongly supports the concept of ''orderly progression'' of lymph node metastases [22] and therefore validates the clinical role of sentinel lymph node biopsy especially in patients with melanoma [35]. On the other hand, prior sentinel lymph node biopsy does not compromise regional nodal basin control [36], while it is associated with a very low incidence (<2%) of late lymphedema [37].…”

“…4 It can be a challenge, however, to detect SLN metastases, as they are often microscopic, requiring examination of multiple SLN sections. Dissection of SLN can also result in mild to moderate degrees of lymphedema 17 or sensory morbidity. 18 Alternative early-stage prognostic factors are therefore urgently needed.…”
