This video demonstrates fully how NOTES can facilitate 'cherry-picking' of sentinel nodes from the perigastric lymph basins (including the retropyloric space) after gastroscopic lymphatic mapping of a site in the stomach in an experimental model. It is proposed that this could be partnered with advanced endoscopic resective techniques such as Submucosal Endoscopic Dissection (SED) in order to allow definitive endoscopic excision of early stage gastric cancers.
