Prognostic significance of a new grading system of lymph node morphology after neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy for esophageal cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Along with primary tumor response, lymph node (LN) status after radiochemotherapy is one of the most important prognostic factors for advanced esophageal carcinoma. We investigated the influence of neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy on histomorphologic parameters of LNs. METHODS One hundred ninety-two patients with esophageal carcinoma underwent… (More)
