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.
Findings from this retrospective review show the importance of removing the less radioactive nodes in patients with cutaneous melanoma.
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.
To preoperatively predict the risk of pN+ for NF-PanNETs Partelli et al retrospectively reviewed clinical and pathological data using multiple logistic regression analysis.
This clinical trial analyzes the feasibility and clinical benefit of intraoperative near infrared fluorescence sentinel lymph node excision (SLNE) compared with standard technetium Tc 99m–guided SLNE in 80 patients with malignant melanoma on the trunk or extremities.
