1. Radiologic filling of supraclavicular nodes is normal and common (55 per cent of 92 pedal lympho‐graphies). 
Displaced paraspinal line: role of CT and lymphography.
TLDR
In 20 selected cases in which computed tomography and/or lymphography were performed, 13 of 16 lymphograms and 11 of 11 CT scans helped confirm a paraspinal mass, suggesting adenopathy, and the greater sensitivity of CT in theParaspinal area are discussed. Expand
SUPRACLAVICULAR LYMPHADENOPATHY AND CARCINOMA OF THE PROSTATE ASPIRATION CYTOLOGY IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF BOTH
TLDR
Three illustrative cases are presented and a method of investigation is described by which the cause of supraclavicular lymphadenopathy and prostatomegaly was easily and quickly established by fine needle aspiration and cytological examination of smears. Expand

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the most critical sentinel node, if such usage is allowed, is situated as a guard for a limited specific route and for a common drainage route, the "common terminal node". Expand
Anatomy and histology of Virchow’s node
TLDR
Histological investigation revealed that, on the inferior or distal side of the end node, the thoracic duct divided into three to 10 collateral ducts and these ducts surrounded the node, in which the famous ‘Virchow’s metastasis’ of advanced gastric cancer occurs. Expand
Review of thoracic duct anatomical variations and clinical implications
TLDR
An improved understanding of the anatomy of the thoracic duct would help surgeons to avoid inadvertent injury and potentially afford new opportunities for diagnosis and intervention in patients with critical illness. Expand
Vascular anatomy of the pancreaticoduodenal region: A review.
TLDR
It is considered that different interpretations as well as varying reported incidences depend on different "thresholds" when observations are made, and consideration of new aspects of vascular anatomy of the pancreaticoduodenal region is required for further improvement of surgical procedures. Expand
Metachronous metastasis to the right axillary lymph node and chest wall after curative gastrectomy in gastric adenocarcinoma : a case report
A 44-year-old man underwent curative distal gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer (T4aN3aM0, stage IIIC). Twenty-three months later, the patient complained of an asymptomatic right axillary mass,Expand
Typology of the subclavian and axillary lymphatics
TLDR
Detailed dissections were performed bilaterally on 90 human adult cadavers to obtain more accurate data on the course and origin of the subclavian lymphatics and especially of the submarine lymphatic trunk to provide critical information for an unproved clinical examination and lymphatic resection of breast cancer. Expand
Anatomy of right recurrent nerve node: why does early metastasis of esophageal cancer occur in it?
TLDR
The collateral of the recR and its direct drainage to the venous system suggested that theRecR involvement often corresponds to a systemic disease. Expand
Contiguous pattern spreading in patients with Hodgkin's disease.
TLDR
The data support the concept that Hodgkin's disease spreads in a predictable manner via functionally contiguous lymph nodes through the lymphatic system through the involvement of para-aortic or spleen involvement and the inguinal nodes. Expand
