This prospective feasibility trial adds selective removal of clip-containing lymph nodes to sentinel lymph node dissection, with the possibility of identifying patients for limited nodal surgery after chemotherapy.
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.
Zhou et al compare patients who underwent retrograde pancreaticoduodenectomy with 15 of those operated on through a conventional approach.
To determine the safety and effectiveness of endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS)–guided transbronchial needle aspiration as a key component of a preoperative staging algorithm for lung cancer in veterans, Cornwell et al compared groups undergoing EBUS vs PET/CT only. The accuracy of nodal staging was compared with the final pathological staging after complete nodal dissection. See the Invited Commentary by Fisichella.
