There were three cases of lateral cervical lymph node
metastasis in two groups each.
Sometimes, lymph node
enlargement is the first manifestation of the diseases.
A ultrasound-based preoperative evaluation of the primary tumor's extent as well as lymph node
involvement has become an essential procedure, which can modify the overall surgical approach in up to 40% of cases.
These results provide an initial step toward the improvement of lung cancer therapy that is based on measurement of the expression of genes in the metastatic lymph nodes
Results: Out of a total of 97 patients with granulomatous lymph node
biopsies, 36 (37%) were males and 61 (63%) females.
The extent of lymph node
evaluation required for staging is debatable.
The likelihood of a positive sentinel lymph node
was even lower for patients enrolled in high-quality studies, compared with lower-quality studies, they said.
A standardized and reproducible method for processing lymph nodes
is necessary to compare the results between centres and should be a prerequisite to any use of lymph node
counts as a measure of the quality of PLND.
hyperplasia can involve both the T-cell-rich paracortex and B-cell-rich follicles and can be indicative of a cell-mediated or humoral response, respectively (Elmore, 2006a).
Conclusion: In clinically node negative neck, the risk of lymph node
metastases is significantly high in patients of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma in our population.
Ultrasound features documented included lymph node
site, number, size, roundness index, presence and absence of hilum, margins of lymph node
At present, integrated positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET-CT) is recognised as being superior to PET alone, CT alone, or visual comparison of PET and CT images for the assessment of mediastinal lymph node
involvement in NSCLC,  with an average sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) of 73%, 80%, 78% and 91%, respectively.
The company stated that the product becomes the first and only FDA-approved radiopharmaceutical application for sentinel lymph node
detection, and was first approved in March 2013 for lymphatic mapping in breast cancer and melanoma patients.
Results showed that Lymphoseek guided sentinel lymph node
biopsy accurately determined if the cancer had spread through the lymphatic system.
