The number of lymph nodes required for accurate staging after distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma is unknown. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was used to identify 1,473 patients who underwent distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma from 1998 to 2010. We evaluated the influence of the total number of lymph nodes examined (NNE) and the lymph node ratio (LNR-positive nodes/total nodes examined) on survival. The median NNE was 8. No nodes… CONTINUE READING
