英文摘要: According to the current official guidelines, at least 12 lymph nodes (LNs) are qualified as an adequate sampling for colon cancer patients. However, patients evaluated with less nodes were still common in the United States, and the prevalence of positive nodal disease may be under-estimated because of the false-negative assessment. In this study, we present a statistical model that allows preoperative determination of the minimum number of lymph nodes needed to confirm a node-negative disease with certain confidence.
