Purpose We assessed the merit of performing salvage inguinal lymph node dissection in those infrequent cases of penile cancer with locally recurrent inguinal lymph node metastases in the absence of other suspected sites of disease. Materials and Methods A total of 20 patients were retrospectively identified as having undergone salvage inguinal lymph node dissection for locally recurrent penile cancer. Patients were previously treated with primary inguinal lymph node dissection with curative intent. At the time of salvage inguinal lymph node dissection, superficial and deep inguinal lymph node dissection was performed with resection outside of the standardized surgical template if there was inguinal recurrence outside of this region. Results All cases were primary penile squamous cell carcinomas. Median time to recurrence from initial inguinal lymph node dissection was 7.7 months (range 3.1 to 35.0). At salvage inguinal lymph node dissection a median of 3 lymph nodes (range 1 to 17) was resected with a median of 2 (range 1 to 7) nodes positive for malignancy…(ver más)
