    Background: Extranodal extension (ENE) is a documented negative prognostic factor in patients with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). ENE is presumed to manifest in larger lymph nodes. Yet, to date, no study has proven this. This is a pilot study that specifically examines the size distribution of...

    Background: The number of lymph nodes evaluated may be a measure of quality in colon cancer care and appears to be inadequate in most patients treated for colon cancer. We performed a systematic review of the evidence for the association between lymph node evaluation and oncologic outcomes in...

    The article examines the significance of micrometastatic lymph node following pancreatic resection. Micrometastases are common in pancreatic cancer and serve as an independent predictor of poor prognosis. They are commonly extended beyond histologically positive lymph node basins. Thus, extended...

    Mortality from cancer recurrence in Dukes B patients is approximately 25–30%. Outcome in Dukes B patients improves in direct relation to the number of lymph nodes examined. Examining fewer lymph nodes risks understaging and also such patients are less likely to receive chemotherapy. The...

    Purpose: The clinical significance of D3 lymph node dissection for patients with colon cancer remains controversial. This study aims to clarify the impact of D3 lymph node dissection on survival in patients with colon cancer. Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study from a prospectively...
