Extent of Central Lymph Node Dissection in Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma

2014-08-27 03:12:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Occult lymph node metastasis is common in micro papillary thyroid cancer. However, the role of lymph node dissection in the treatment of microPTC remains controversial. The investigators want to investigate the usefulness routine central dissection and sentinel lymph node biopsy in prognosis of micro PTC. This is a prospective randomized control study. The investigators started this study from May of 2009 and this study will be continued until Dec. 2011.

Description

The investigators will assign all patients to three groups; no dissection group (Group I), sentinel lymph node biopsy only group (Group II) and routine central neck dissection group (Group III). At first, to know the necessity of routine central neck node dissection for micro PTC,the investigators will compare the result of group I and group III. Additionally, the investigators can analyze the usefulness of sentinel lymph node biopsy for substitution of routine central neck node dissection for micro PTC.

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.

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.
