Since medical research and practice in the field of oncology have shown explosive growth, the staging of some of the gynecologic cancers did not give a good spread of prognostic groupings. In the light of these breakthroughs, the following changes(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the prognostic significance of lymph node ratio and number of positive nodes in vulvar cancer patients. METHODS This international multicenter retrospective study included patients diagnosed with vulvar cancer treated with inguinal lymphadenectomy. Lymph node ratio (LNR) is the ratio of the number of positive lymph nodes (LN) to the(More)
