According to this classification, level 1 LNs were submental and submandibular; level 2 LNs were upper internal jugular chain nodes; level 3 LNs were middle internal jugular chain nodes; level 4 LNs were lower internal jugular chain nodes; level 5 LNs were spinal accessory chain nodes and transverse cervical chain nodes; and level 6 LNs were anterior cervical nodes (13).
In order to treat the ureteral tumor and common iliac LN metastasis, in which cancer cells may acquire resistance to GC-chemotherapy, the patient underwent left RNU and lymph node dissection (LND), including most of the common iliac LNs. Simultaneously, regional external iliac, obturator, and internal iliac LNs were removed as previously reported [5,6].
The aim of our study was to investigate the role of elasticity indices as possible predictive parameters for postoperative cervical LN metastasis in PTC patients and to evaluate the diagnostic value of SWE for the differentiation of benign and malignant LNs in indeterminate or suspicious LNs on conventional US finding.
Although a systematic lymphadenectomy is an essential part of staging surgery, FIGO did not define the optimal limits for lymphadenectomies, nor the adequate number of LNs required for the comprehensiveness of the procedure.
The aim of our study was to evaluate distribution of positive LNs in colon cancer resections in the immediate vicinity and distant from the tumor site and to determine the proportion of cases that could be upstaged by instituting a "second look" protocol in all cases that were negative after the first search.
Our results showed a higher frequency of LVI (35.5%) with a high risk of nodal metastasis in these patients (OR 1.8 for '1-3' LN and 5.8 for '>3' LNs).
Several publications have proposed techniques to improve this trade-off, and as a result, the LNS able to operate at better performance than FXP or FLP [1,7].
The excitation light penetrates deeply into the pelvic tissues, and the strong fluorescence of ICG allows the detection of even small particles of ICG bound to plasma proteins in the lymphatic vessels and LNs. The fluorescence signals are transmitted to a digital video processor and displayed on a TV monitor in real time.
Two types of LNS were developed in preparation for the NUSTART trial: LNS-30 g for pre-ART nutritional support and LNS-250 g for nutritional support during ART.
To realize full potential of ITN/LN technologies, the LNs should be scaled up to achieve full coverage of all population groups in areas where these are the chosen method for malaria prevention.
In addition to a broad assortment of quality steady rest components, LNS devotes applications experience, 3D design capabilities, and nationwide service and support to every steady rest project.
