Lymph node density (LND) is more useful than the TNM classification in predicting survival after surgery for many cancers. The purpose of this study was to clarify independent prognostic factors for hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HPSCC) and broaden the staging system to improve its predictive value. The present study included 105 patients with HPSCC treated with hypophagectomy and neck dissection between 1993 and 2014. The median LND in patients with HPSCC was 0.060 (range 0.026–0.620… CONTINUE READING
