Postchemotherapy retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (pcRPLND) is mandated in patients with nonseminomatous germ cell tumor found to have residual masses after chemotherapy. Performed via the open approach, pcRPLND can incur significant perioperative morbidity.

To report our initial experience and short-term results in post-chemotherapy robot-assisted retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RA-RPLND) for advanced testicular 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 ...
The surgical treatment of vulvar cancer has undergone many changes over the last century. The morbidity of open inguinal incisions prompts the search for a minimally-invasive approach to lymph node di...
Combination laparoscopic lymph node (LN) dissection and endoscopic resection is a promising treatment for early gastric cancer. However, LN dissection could cause nerve injury and deterioration of mot...
For patients with lymph node-positive (LN+) penile cancer, the optimal extent of lymph node dissection (LND) is currently not established. We aimed to reveal the potential association between survival...
This phase II trial studies how well retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) works in treating patients with stage I-IIa testicular seminoma. The retroperitoneum is the space in the ...
To elucidate whether peritoneal closure and retroperitoneal drainage can benefit clinical outcome of early gynecologic cancer patients who underwent retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
Trial to Evaluate Progression Free Survival With Primary Retroperitoneal Lymph-node Dissection (pRPLND) Only in Patients With Seminomatous Testicular Germ Cell Tumors With Clinical Stage IIA/B (PRIMETEST)
Primary objective: to evaluate progression-free survival in patients with clinical stage II A/B seminomatous germ cell tumor undergoing primary retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLN...
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...
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate how many lymph nodes are left behind after robotic-assisted removal and are then found after a wider incision is made, in patients w...
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.
Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)
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.
Testicular cancer represents only 1 per cent of all cancers in men, but it is the single biggest cause of cancer-related deaths in men aged 15-35 years in the UK. The causes of testicular cancer and reasons are unknown. Exposure to female hormones in the...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
