The basic anatomic lymph node drainage patterns from lung cancers have remained relatively constant since their early descriptions. Sentinel lymph node mapping and other reviews of anatomic resections have provided additional information regarding drainage patterns of lymphatic metastases. In light of these efforts, topics related to lymphatic metastases, such as skip metastasis and micrometastasis, still remain the subject of investigation. A review of the recent literature shows that the… CONTINUE READING
