• presence
  • Correlations were analyzed between nonsentinel LN status, LECP%, and other clinicopathologic variables (number of involved sentinel LNs, size of the primary tumor and LN metastasis, presence of lymphovascular invasion in the primary tumor, and of extracapsular growth in the sentinel LN metastasis). (aacrjournals.org)
  • The multivariate logistic regression model retained high LECP% (odds ratios = 4.2, P = 0.01) and the presence of extracapsular growth (odds ratios = 3.38, P = 0.04) as independently associated with the presence of nonsentinel LN metastases. (aacrjournals.org)
  • growth
  • Thirty seven out of 65 patients (56.9%) had at least one involved nonsentinel LN. Size of the sentinel LN metastasis ( P = 0.001), lymphovascular invasion ( P = 0.02), extracapsular growth ( P = 0.02), and LECP% ( P = 0.01) were correlated with a positive nonsentinel LN status.
