Sentinel Lymph Node Localization and Biopsy for Conjunctival and Eyelid Melanoma
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the sentinel lymph node (SLN) (s) and biopsy it (them) to see if the patient has small or low volume metastatic disease that would otherwise have been missed.
Treatment Location: N/A
Primary Objectives: a) Identify the rate of SLN positivity in conjunctival/eyelid melanomas. b) Determine the false negative rate for SLN biopsy for the same. Secondary Objective: Determine the complication rate for this technique, particularly with respect to local ocular and periocular side effects as well as the risk of facial nerve damage.
