Abstract

The controversy surrounding the management of patients with invasive carcinoma of the penis and clinically negative nodes is discussed. The rationale, technique and preliminary results of a modified inguinal lymphadenectomy in which the lateral and caudal extents of nodal excision are reduced, and the saphenous veins are preserved are also presented. This modified lymphadenectomy has been performed in 6 patients with invasive carcinoma of the penis or distal urethra without major or troublesome complications.
