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...
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...
The aim of this study is intending to provide the optimal procedures of lymph node sorting for pathological examination after curative surgery for gastric cancer, which can discriminate th...
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...
RATIONALE: New imaging procedures such as lymphoscintigraphy may improve the ability to detect the spread of mouth and throat cancer to lymph nodes in the neck. PURPOSE: Pilot study of ly...
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...
Central lymph node metastasis (LNM) in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is common. But the association between primary tumor characteristics and specific features of metastatic lymph nodes in PTC has...
The benefits of prophylactic central neck dissection (pCND) for treating patients with clinical node-negative (cN0) papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) remain controversial. Lymph node metastases have b...
Pathological complete response is achievable with mFOLFOX6 plus cetuximab therapy for unresectable colorectal cancer with multiple paraaortic lymph node metastases (mCRC) despite right-sided colonic o...
Vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT) has become the established treatment for secondary lymphedema. The proposed mechanisms of VLNT include lymphangiogenesis and absorptive action of transplanted l...
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.
