There is no consensus as to the impact of lymph node micrometastasis on survival of patients with gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to clarify the prognostic significance of lymph node micrometastasis in patients with histologically node-negative gastric cancer Lymph nodes (n=2039) from 64 patients with histologically node-negative gastric cancer (T2, T3) were evaluated for micrometastasis. Three serial 5-μm sections of the resected lymph nodes were prepared for immunohistochemical… CONTINUE READING
