Prognostic impact and therapeutic implications of sentinel lymph node micro-metastases in early-stage breast cancer patients


Viehl, C T; Langer, I; Guller, U; Zanetti-Dällenbach, R; Moch, H; Wight, E; Oertli, D; Zuber, M (2011). Prognostic impact and therapeutic implications of sentinel lymph node micro-metastases in early-stage breast cancer patients. Journal of Surgical Oncology, 103(6):531-533.

Abstract

The prognostic value of sentinel lymph node (SLN) micro-metastases and the question whether patients with SLN micro-metastases should undergo axillary lymph node dissection remain a matter of great debate. Based on the current literature and on our own data, we provide suggestive evidence that SLN micro-metastases in early stage breast cancer patients appear to have prognostic value and should impact the decision-making regarding adjuvant therapy, however, do not necessarily require further surgical treatment.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
