The secondary outcomes were the total number of lymph nodes
and the total number of lymph node
metastases counted by both techniques.
Isolated axillary lymph node
metastasis from serous ovarian cancer.
All histological specimens thus obtained were considered definitive for both lymph node
positivity and negativity.
Regarding tissue sectioning and levels, nearly all institutions (16 of 18; 89%) reported routinely cutting multiple sections for each lymph node
, with a majority (10 of 18; 56%) reporting 2 to 5 slides per sentinel lymph node
(range of 1 to >10 slides).
Sarcoidosis with clinically isolated mediastinal adenopathy; diagnosis confirmed by biopsy of inguinal & right pre-scalenic lymph nodes
levels were defined according to the anatomic boundaries described in a recent update on classification of ND surgery.
The two study groups did differ significantly in morbidities related to lymph node
size on chest CT scan, number of passes, diagnosis, and complications were recorded.
Accurate lymph node
staging in genitourinary malignancy is an important component in the diagnostic algorithm and therapeutic planning.
Sentinel lymph node
(SLN) biopsy has become well established as the standard for axillary node staging in breast cancer [1-3].
GeneSearch(TM) Breast Lymph Node
Assay Provides Physicians with Critical Information Rapidly to Guide Surgery
This idea was based on suggestive lymph node
pathology, which showed caseating granulomas, a history of TB vaccination, and the exclusion of other pathologic changes.
