Melanoma: rimozione dei linfonodi sì o no?

Pinterest Google+

Nel caso di pazienti con melanoma nei quali si trovano cellule maligne nel linfonodo “sentinella” non è necessario togliere anche i linfonodi vicini perché potrebbe aumentare il rischio di effetti avversi senza aumentare la sopravvivenza.

E’ stato dimostrato da uno studio internazionale a cui ha partecipato anche l’Istituto Pascale di Napoli, pubblicato dal New England Journal of Medicine.

I ricercatori hanno studiato circa 2mila pazienti, tutti con il linfonodo sentinella positivo, dividendoli in due gruppi.

Metà è stata trattata rimuovendo subito anche i linfonodi circostanti, mentre gli altri sono stati monitorati con un’ecografia ogni sei mesi, e sottoposti all’asportazione solo in caso di esito positivo.

La sopravvivenza è risultata identica nei due gruppi, ma nel primo è stato rivelato un tasso di effetti collaterali più alto, come ad esempio gonfiore, indurimento della pelle e difficoltà nel movimento.

“Abbiamo visto che in meno del 15% dei casi in realtà sarebbe necessaria l’asportazione di tutti i linfonodi – spiega Nicola Mozzillo, che ha diretto il gruppo napoletano che ha partecipato allo studio -. Applicare i risultati di questo studio al mondo reale porterebbe a una diminuzione considerevole degli interventi, risparmiando quindi al paziente effetti collaterali, conseguenze estetiche e psicologiche di un’operazione, e permettendo anche un utilizzo migliore delle risorse, visto che per il follow up i costi sono minimi”.

In Italia, spiega Mozzillo, sono circa 7mila i pazienti che sarebbero interessati, ma i numeri potrebbero crescere ulteriormente. “Lo studio è stato fatto per il melanoma – sottolinea l’esperto – ma lo stesso approccio è usato per molti altri tumori, a partire da quello della mammella, e stiamo cercando di verificare se si può applicare lo stesso principio. Questa è una rivoluzione per la chirurgia oncologica, da un approccio invasivo uguale per tutti ad una medicina di precisione tagliata sul paziente”.

    If you do not have insurance, the cost is set by UCLA and is around $500 to $700.00 for just the consultation. I have been told fees are negotional, but I do not know anyone who has tried. With Medicare and a good suppliment it will cost you very little. I have not received any bill for the consult. No tests are performed until the next visit the day before surgery. The most important is the translabial ultrasound, which is how he can tell where the mesh is. Few doctors use this and even if they do they have to be able to read it.
