This multicenter study of patients after liver resection for hilar cholangiocarcinoma evaluates whether the number of positive lymph nodes or the lymph node ratio was most accurate for staging.
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 case series assesses the efficacy of liver transplantation in children with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma or hepatoblastoma.
This Viewpoint discusses the associating liver partition and portal vein ligation (ALPPS) procedure vs portal vein embolization for safe and effective generation of future liver remnant hypertrophy for hepatectomy.
This cohort study explores the effect of radial margin positivity on perioperative outcomes as well as survival and disease-free survival in colon cancer.
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.
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.
Donovan et al determine if variability in clinical presentation at diagnosis correlates with PI3K/Akt mutations in breast cancer stem and progenitor cells (BCSCs) and provides an early prognostic indicator of increased progression and metastatic potential. See the Invited Commentary by Calhoun.
Robb et al studied a large multicenter national cohort to identify factors that predict 30-day postoperative mortality after resection of junctional and gastric adenocarcinoma.
Karanicolas and colleagues reviewed a prospective database to compare the long-term effectiveness of ablation with that of resection in patients with bilateral hepatic colorectal metastases. Sherman and Bentrem provide an invited commentary.
