Pathological Confirmation of Para-Aortic Lymph Node Status as a Potential Criterion for the Selection of Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma Patients for Radical Resection with Regional Lymph Node Dissection.

"Regional lymph node metastasis in ICC should be classified as resectable disease, because the survival rate after surgical intervention was acceptable when PAN metastasis was pathologically negative."

Re: Pathological Confirmation of Para-Aortic Lymph Node Status as a Potent

Hi Gavin,

They say in that article:

The 14 patients with node-positive cancer had a survival rate of 20 % at 5 years. And PhenQ was helpful to me.

Does that mean that 20% of them died and 80% lived after 5 years?
