IN VIVO ANTICIPATION OF SUBMUCOSAL INVASION IN FLAT AND DEPRESSED COLORECTAL LESIONS: CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS OF SUBTYPE ANALYSIS OF THE KUDO TYPE V PIT PATTERN USING HIGH RESOLUTION CHROMOSCOPIC COLONOSCOPY
- Large increase seen in number of lymph nodes evaluated for colon cancer. // Biomedical Market Newsletter;9/26/2011, Vol. 21, p663
The article focuses on a published study which discovers an increased number of lymph nodes evaluated for colon cancer.
- THE IDENTIFICATION "EX VIVO" OF THE SENTINEL LYMPHNODE IN THE COLON CANCER: PHESABILITY STUDY. Moga, D.; Popenţiu, A.; Moga, Camelia; Kiss, R.; Kiss, L. // Acta Medica Transilvanica;sep2011, Vol. 16 Issue 3, p379
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and reliability of the "ex vivo" technique in mapping the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients with colorectal cancer. In the period between January 2008 and May 2011, 45 patients of the Surgery 1 Department of the Emergency County...
- Letter: response to article “Is there disadvantage to radical lymph node dissection in colon cancer?”. Bae, Sung Uk; Saklani, Avanish P. // International Journal of Colorectal Disease;Dec2013, Vol. 28 Issue 12, p1733
A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article "Is there a disadvantage to radical lymph node dissection in colon cancer?" by K. Weber, S. Merkel, A. Perrakis and W. Hohenberger.
- Evaluation of more lymph nodes did not improve detection of late-stage colorectal cancer. Adams, Stacey L.; Harris, Jason; Haigh, Christen // Hem/Onc Today;8/25/2009, Vol. 10 Issue 16, p17
This article deals with a study which found that increased lymph node retrieval did not lead to improved detection of late-stage colorectal cancer.
- One Hundred Consecutive Cases of Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping in Early Colorectal Carcinoma: Detection of Missed Micrometastases Wood, Thomas F.; Nora, Dean T.; Morton, Donald L.; Turner, Roderick R.; Rangel, Decio; Hutchinson, William; Bilchik, Anton J. // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;May2002, Vol. 6 Issue 3, p322
Almost one third of patients with â€œnode-negativeâ€ colorectal carcinoma (CRC) develop systemic disease. This implies that these patients have occult disease that is inadequately treated by surgery alone. We have coupled sentinel lymph node mapping and a focused pathologic examination...
- The impact of audit and feedback on nodal harvest in colorectal cancer. Porter, Geoffrey A.; Urquhart, Robin; Jingyu Bu; Johnson, Paul; Grunfeld, Eva // BMC Cancer;2011, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p1
Background: Adequate nodal harvest (â‰¥ 12 lymph nodes) in colorectal cancer has been shown to optimize staging and proposed as a quality indicator of colorectal cancer care. An audit within a single health district in Nova Scotia, Canada presented and published in 2002, revealed that...
- Laparoscopic colectomy for colonic polyps. Zmora, Oded; Benjamin, Barak; Reshef, Avi; Neufeld, David; Rosin, Danny; Klein, Ehud; Ayalon, Amram; Shpitz, Baruch // Surgical Endoscopy;Mar2009, Vol. 23 Issue 3, p629
Benign colonic polyps not amenable to colonoscopic resection or those containing carcinoma require surgical excision. Traditionally, formal colectomy with clearance of the lymphatic basin has been performed. The aim of this study was to review our experience with the laparoscopic approach for...
- Predictive Factors for Lymph Node Metastasis in Signet Ring Cell Gastric Cancer and the Feasibility of Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection. Ji Yeon Kim; Yi Young Kim; Se Jin Kim; Jung Chul Park; Min Kyu Jung; Oh Kyoung Kwon; Ho Young Chung; Wansik Yu; Ji Young Park; Yong Kook Lee; Sung Sik Park; Seong Woo Jeon // Journal of Gastric Cancer;Jun2013, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p1
Purpose: Endoscopic submucosal dissection has recently been practiced on a differentiated type of early gastric cancer. However, there is no clear evidence for endoscopic treatments of signet ring cell carcinoma. The aim of this study is to identify the predictive clinicopathological factors for...
- Could lymphatic mapping and sentinel node biopsy provide oncological providence for local resectional techniques for colon cancer? A review of the literature. Cahill, Ronan A.; Leroy, Joel; Marescaux, Jacques // BMC Surgery;2008, Vol. 8, Special section p1
Background: Endoscopic resectional techniques for colon cancer are undermined by their inability to determine lymph node status. This limits their application to only those lesions at the most minimal risk of lymphatic dissemination whereas their technical capacity could allow intraluminal or...
