Summary of "Frequency and Implications of Paratracheal Lymph Node Metastases in Resectable Esophageal or Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma."

We aimed to evaluate the frequency of paratracheal lymph nodes (LN) metastases and their prognostic influence.

DWI and T2-Weighted MRI Volumetry in Resectable Rectal Cancer: Correlation With Lymphovascular Invasion and Lymph Node Metastases.

The purpose of this study was to assess whether MR volumetric data on DW and T2-weighted MR images are correlated with lymphovascular invasion and lymph node metastases in resectable rectal cancer.

The overall metastatic rate in early esophageal adenocarcinoma: long-time follow-up of surgically treated patients.

The overall metastatic potential of surgically treated early esophageal adenocarcinoma has not been studied in detail. This paper therefore assessed lymph node metastases at surgery, loco regional and...

Risk of Lymph Node Metastasis in Patients with the Superficial Spreading Type of Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Little is known about the clinicopathological characteristics of superficial spreading-type esophageal carcinoma extending ≥5 cm along the long axis of the esophagus. This study was aimed at investi...

Detection of breast cancer lymph node metastases in frozen sections with a point-of-care low-cost microscope scanner.

Detection of lymph node metastases is essential in breast cancer diagnostics and staging, affecting treatment and prognosis. Intraoperative microscopy analysis of sentinel lymph node frozen sections i...

Low Frequency of Lymph Node Metastases in Patients in the United States With Early-stage Gastric Cancers That Fulfill Japanese Endoscopic Resection Criteria.

In the West, early gastric cancer is increasingly managed with endoscopic resection (ER). This is, however, based on the assumption that the low prevalence and risk of lymph node metastases observed i...

Distribution of Lymph Node Metastases in Esophageal Carcinoma

Background: Lymph node status is an important prognostic parameter in esophageal carcinoma and an independent predictor of survival. Distribution of metastatic lymph nodes may vary with tu...

Lymph Node Mapping and Sentinel Lymph Node Identification in Patients With Stage IB1 Cervical Cancer

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as lymph node mapping and sentinel lymph node identification, performed before and during surgery, may improve the ability to detect lymph node metas...

Lymph Node Metastases and Arterial Ligation in Rectal Cancer Surgery

Lymph node status is of major prognostic importance in non-metastatic rectal cancer. For oncological reasons, central arterial ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) is suggested...

MSOT Using Cetuximab-800CW for Detection of Cervical Lymph Node Metastases

The presence of lymph node metastasis is an important factor in determining the appropriate treatment plan in patients with OSCC. However, detection of lymph node metastases by means of cu...

Endobronchial Ultrasound vs Mediastinoscopy in NSCLC

Proper staging of Lung cancer is of paramount concern when determining a treatment regime. Currently the assessment of surgical candidacy is performed with the staging process, mainly the ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

External or interstitial irradiation to treat lymphomas (e.g., Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) and lymph node metastases and also some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
