Solutions in radio guided cancer surgery
a) SLNB – Sentinal Lymph Node Biopsy
Sentinel lymph node biopsy is the standard surgical procedure for staging clinically tumor-free regional nodes in patients with early-stage breast cancer. The combined use of radioactive tracers and blue dyes is more effective in detecting sentinel lymph nodes and is therefore routinely performed.
b) MIRP – Minimal Invasive Radio-guided Parathyroid Surgery
Here, MIRP has the highest cure rate and is the least invasive of all parathyroid operations. All patients can have a mini-operation and all four parathyroid glands can be examined.
c) ROLL – Radio-guided Occult Lesion Localisation for CA breast(early breast cancer)
ROLL is a simple yet effective method for the surgical removal of breast lesions with a minimum of adjacent normal tissue. Either mammography or ultrasound is used to guide injection of a small volume of radiolabelled colloid into the centre of the lesion.
Number of cases
Manipal Hospital has performed over 3 lakh radio guided cancer surgeries with successful outcomes.
Infection control protocol
Though this procedure is mainly minimally invasive, patients need the same care and comfort that open surgery patients require. Controlling infections however low the occurrence, is prime at Manipal Hospital.
