    Background: Skepticism prevails over the role of minimally invasive surgery in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Long-term data on the safety and efficacy of this technique remain scarce. A nonrandomized, prospective comparison of laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery (LS) with open surgery...

    Quality measures for prognostication of colon cancer include the removal of 12 or more lymph nodes during colon resection. The purpose of this study was to determine whether emergent surgery is associated with inadequate lymph node harvest. The National Cancer Database (NCDB) was queried for...

    OBJECTIVES Predictors of long-term survival for patients with lung cancer assist in individualizing treatment recommendations. Diffusing capacity (DLCO) is a predictor of complications after resection for lung cancer. We sought to determine whether DLCO is also prognostic for long-term survival...
