This cohort study reports that the extent of lymphadenectomy during surgery for esophageal cancer is not associated with 5-year all-cause or disease-specific survival.
This cohort study evaluates the impact of extranodal extension size on axillary nodal burden, disease recurrence, and survival in patients with breast cancer.
This randomized clinical trial demonstrates that Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy can be performed with lower rates of postoperative complications and more lymph node retrieval compared with Sweet esophagectomy.
Riccardo et al investigated the distribution of the number of excised lymph nodes in a large patient series to identify values that may serve as benchmarks for monitoring the quality of lymphadenectomy in patients with melanoma.
Leung et al reviewed the records of patients with cutaneous melanoma who underwent completion lymph node dissection to evaluate whether disease limited to sentinel lymph nodes represents different clinical significance than disease spread into nonsentinel lymph nodes.
