Summary of "Lymph Node Ratio Can Better Predict Prognosis than Absolute Number of Positive Lymph Nodes in Operable Cervical Carcinoma."

Nodal status is the most important prognostic factor in cervical cancer. However, further risk stratification in node positive cervical cancer patients is warranted for optimal therapeutic decisions.

Lymph node ratio and liver metachronous metastases in colorectal cancer.

The authors seek to assess whether the lymph node ratio (the ratio of positive nodes divided by the total number of retrieved nodes) could predict the risk of metachronous liver metastases.

Modified lymph node ratio improves the prognostic predictive ability for breast cancer patients compared with other lymph node staging systems.

Metastatic regional lymph nodes (LN) is a strong predictor of worse long-term outcome. Therefore, different LN staging systems have been proposed in recent years. In this study, we proposed a modified...

Segment location and ground glass opacity ratio reliably predict node-negative status in lung cancer.

Although selective mediastinal lymph node dissection based on lobe-specific nodal metastasis has been proposed for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), controversy remains over its validity. We hypothe...

Predictors of Occult Lymph Node Metastasis and Prognosis in Patients with cN0 T1-T2 Supraglottic Laryngeal Carcinoma: A Retrospective Study.

This work aimed to explore the predictors of lymph node metastasis (LNM) and analyze the prognosis of patients with clinically node-negative (cN0) T1-T2 supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma (SGLC).

Prognostic factors for and pattern of lymph-node involvement in patients with operable cervical cancer.

Lymph node metastases significantly worsen the prognosis in cervical carcinoma. Risk factors-pathological and patient related-could select patients at high risk for lymph node involvement.

Prognostic Significance of Lymph Node Yield and Lymph Node Ratio Prospective Observational Study

It is still unclear if Lymph Node Yield (LNY) and Lymph Node Ratio (LNR) may have a prognostic role in patients affected by carcinoma of the head and neck. Only retrospective studies are a...

Effect of Lymph Node Ratio in Gastric Cancer to Determine Recurrence Rate After Curative Resection

D2 gastrectomy is standard treatment of early gastric cancer in Japan but in other countries there is still some discord, especially in Europe and North America. Although the quantity of m...

Relationship Between Lymph Node Ratio and Survival Rate in Preoperative Chemoradiation Rectal Cancer Patients

Colorectal cancer is the most-common cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. The number of positive lymph nodes and total number of lymph nodes retrieved are important prognostic factors. In...

Verifying the Specificity of a New Method in Predicting Lymph Node Metastasis in Early Gastric Cancer Patients

Early gastric cancer is defined as gastric cancer that only invades mucosal or submucosal layer. The 5-year survival rate of gastric cancer can exceed 90% due to appropriate treatment. The...

MRI Radiomics Assessing Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Breast Cancer to Predict Lymph Node Metastasis and Prognosis(RBC-02)

This study is aimed to illustrate whether Radiomics combining multiparametric MRI before and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) with clinical data is a good way to predict axillary lymp...

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.

The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)
