  • PurposeThe objective of this study was to investigate the correlation between the microscopic findings of positive lymph nodes, especially focusing on capsular invasion, and the outcome after curative surgical resection of colorectal cancer.MethodsWe analyzed 480 positive lymph nodes from 155 consecutive patients with Stage III colorectal cancer to determine the frequency and significance of lymph node capsular invasion. Recurrence-free and cancer-specific survival rates were assessed in the… CONTINUE READING
