Background: Correct determination of nodal status is pivotal to accurate staging and predicting survival. Methods: This is a secondary analysis of INT0089, an intergroup trial of adjuvant chemotherapy for high-risk stage II and III colon cancer. A subset of patients was studied who underwent right or left hemicolectomy and from whom at least 10 lymph nodes were examined. A mathematical model was created to estimate the probability of a true negative result on the basis of the number of nodes… CONTINUE READING
