Axillary dissection vs no axillary dissection in women with invasive breast cancer and sentinel node metastasis: a randomized clinical trial.
CONTEXT Sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) accurately identifies nodal metastasis of early breast cancer, but it is not clear whether further nodal dissection affects survival. OBJECTIVE ToExpand

A multicenter trial of sentinel lymph node mapping in colorectal cancer: prognostic implications for nodal staging and recurrence.
BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping (M) for staging in colorectal cancer (CRCa) remains controversial and needs to be validated. This study analyzes results of SLNM at a multi-institutionalExpand

Ultrastaging of colorectal cancer by sentinel lymph node mapping technique--a multicenter trial.
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping accurately diagnoses the status of nodal basin with >95% accuracy in melanoma and breast cancer. A multicenter trial for SLN mapping was performed on 203 patientsExpand

c-MET expression level in primary colon cancer: a predictor of tumor invasion and lymph node metastases.
PURPOSE Both c-MET and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-C expression are important factors in primary carcinoma progression. We hypothesized that overexpression of c-MET and/or VEGF-C mRNAExpand

Prospective multicenter trial of staging adequacy in colon cancer: preliminary results.
HYPOTHESIS Lymph node evaluation is an important prognostic factor in colorectal cancer (CRC). A 25% recurrence rate in patients with node-negative CRC suggests that current staging practices areExpand

Comparative Analysis of Nodal Upstaging Between Colon and Rectal Cancers by Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping: A Prospective Trial
PURPOSESentinel lymph node mapping accurately predicts nodal status in >90 percent of melanoma and breast and colorectal cancers. However, because of anatomic differences, sentinel lymph node mappingExpand

Routine preoperative lymphoscintigraphy is not necessary prior to sentinel node biopsy for breast cancer.
BACKGROUND This prospective study was performed to ascertain the added benefit of lymphoscintigraphy to a standard method of intraoperative lymphatic mapping and sentinel node biopsy for breastExpand

Impact of immediate versus delayed axillary node dissection on surgical outcomes in breast cancer patients with positive sentinel nodes: results from American College of Surgeons Oncology Group
PURPOSE Patients with breast cancer metastasis to the sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) generally undergo completion axillary lymph node dissection (cALND), either concurrently with SLN biopsy or at aExpand
