Impact of serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 level on prognosis and prediction of lymph node metastasis in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM Lymph node metastasis is an important prognostic factor for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), but accurate preoperative diagnosis is difficult. The aim of this study was to measure the concentration of serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (s-CA19-9) as a preoperative predictor of lymph node metastasis. METHODS In our department… (More)
