A suitable treatment strategy for esophageal cancer after definitive chemoradiotherapy for T4 cases has not been established and remains unclear. This study aimed to clarify the independent prognostic factors, surgical indications, and optimal extent of lymphadenectomy for T4 esophageal cancer.

The favorable oncological impact of D3 lymph node dissection after colon cancer surgery has been described previously. However, D3 lymph node dissection is potentially more invasive than conventional ...
At present, there is still no general consensus on the thoracic lymph node classification and dissection standard of esophageal cancer, and its indications, surgical approaches, harvested number and s...
A feasibility study of mediastinoscopic radical esophagectomy for thoracic esophageal cancer from the viewpoint of the dissected mediastinal lymph nodes validated with thoracoscopic procedure: a prospective clinical trial.
A prospective trial evaluated the feasibility and safety of "mediastinoscopic esophagectomy with lymph node dissection" (MELD).
To (i) show the outcome benefits of enlarged lymph nodes in node-positive colon cancer cases, as it was shown previously in negative node cases; (ii) disprove the stage migration theory and (iii) list...
Close observation may be an appropriate alternative to completion lymph node dissection (CLND) for selected patient populations, especially those with minimal tumor burden in the sentinel lymph node (...
Patients undergoing groin or axillary Radical lymph node dissection (RLND) or completion lymph node dissection (CLND, after positive sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for melanoma or breas...
Despite continuous technical improvements in urologic surgery, up to 40% of prostate cancer patients will develop biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy (RP), potentially becau...
In this study, navigation of lymphatic passage after sentinel lymph node with indocyanine green was performed during axillary lymph node dissection in breast surgery . By comparing the con...
The purpose of this study is to determine wether D3 lymph node dissection gives superior oncological outcomes compared to standard D2 lymph node dissection in colon cancer
Breast cancer patients with ipsilateral supraclavicular lymph node metastasis are defined as Ⅲc stage (N3) according to the newly published 8th AJCC TNM staging system. No concret guide ...
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
