    Background: The aim of this study was to determine the survival rate of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who were preoperatively diagnosed with a negative N2 lymph node, but postoperatively confirmed as a positive N2 node based on a pathological evaluation. Materials and Methods:...

    Abstract: Objective: Pulmonary metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer is classified as an advanced disease stage, with limited indications for surgical treatment. However, the prognosis of patients with pulmonary metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer is better than that of patients with...

  • Time to refine N2 staging? cN2α and cN2β based on local regional involvement provide a more accurate prognosis in surgically treated IIIA non-small-cell lung cancer than N2 alone or the number of node stations involved†. Matsunaga, Takeshi; Suzuki, Kenji; Takamochi, Kazuya; Oh, Shiaki // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Jul2014, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p86 

    OBJECTIVES The number of stations of N2 nodes involved has been considered to be one of the most important prognostic factors for lung cancer. However, most reports have dealt with the pathological nodal status rather than with the clinical nodal status. We investigated the relationship between...

    Objective: To determine the clinical significance of skip metastases (pN2/S) in patients with resected pIIIA/N2 NSCLC. The incidence of pN2/S after mediastinal lymph node dissection (MLD) and sampling (MLS) were compared. Method: From 1997 to 2000, 580 lung resections for NSCLC performed at our...

    Purpose: To determine the frequency and prognostic impact of isolated tumor cells (ITC) in regional lymph nodes judged to be tumor free in conventional histopathology among gastric cancer patients. Methods: Among 161 patients who underwent gastrectomy and D2-lymphadenectomy, 56 were staged pN0...

    OBJECTIVES: This study compares early and late outcomes for treatment by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) versus treatment by thoracotomy for clinical N0, but post-operatively unexpected, pathologic N2 disease (cN0-pN2). METHODS: Clinical records of patients with unexpected N2 non-small...

    Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze clinicopathological backgrounds and prognosis of clinical N1 non-small cell lung cancer and clarify the difference between bulky and non-bulky cN1 diseases. Methods: We reviewed 110 patients with completely resected cN1 non-small cell lung cancer...

    The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic impact of the number of lymph node metastases. The medical records of 33 patients with node-positive gallbladder cancer (GBC) treated at our institution from January 1985 through December 2002 were reviewed. There were 10 cases with a single...

    Purpose: Most of the patients with stage IIIA pN2 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) develop recurrence after surgery. It is not clear whether post neoadjuvant chemotherapy tumor-associated macrophages is associated with recurrence. Patients and Methods: Stage IIIA pN2 NSCLC patients underwent...

G. // Annals of Oncology;Oct2012, Vol. 23 Issue 10, p2561 

    Background In the MIRROR study, pN0(i + ) and pN1mi were associated with reduced 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) compared with pN0. Nodal status (N-status) was assessed after central pathology review and restaging according to the sixth AJCC classification. We addressed the impact of...
