• If pelvic nodes were intraoperatively defined as positive for tumor metastasis, para-aortic lymphadenectomy up to inferior mesenteric artery was carried out. (unicatt.it)
  • Lymph node metastases were found in 11 cases (8.9%) at frozen section examination, and in 14 cases (11.4%) at definitive histological diagnosis. (unicatt.it)
  • Is frozen section analysis of pelvic lymph nodes accurate in locally advanced cervical cancer patients administered preoperative chemoradiation? (unicatt.it)
  • The diagnostic performance of frozen section examination of pelvic lymph nodes was assessed by calculating the negative predictive value (NPV), the positive predictive value (PPV), specificity, sensitivity, and overall accuracy. (unicatt.it)
  • RESULTS: A total of 1647 and 4345 pelvic lymph nodes were analyzed by frozen section examination and at final diagnosis, respectively. (unicatt.it)
  • The aim of the study was to analyze the accuracy of pelvic lymph node frozen section examination in a large, consecutive series of locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC) patients undergoing preoperative CT/RT. (unicatt.it)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative chemoradiation does not impair the role of frozen section analysis in predicting the pelvic lymph node involvement in LACC patients. (unicatt.it)
  • Other tests may also be used to check the lymph tissue sample, including a culture, genetic tests, or tests to study the body's immune system. (wn.com)
