Lymph Node Micrometastases in Early Gastric Cancer and Their Impact on Prognosis

Abstract

Abstract While the presence of lymph node metastases in early gastric cancer (EGC) is the most significant prognostic factor, the relevance of lymph node micrometastases remains uncertain. The authors studied 5400 lymph nodes dissected from 300 patients treated surgically for EGC between 1976 and 1999, all of whom were histologically pN0. Micrometastases… (More)
