Adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction: the pattern of metastatic lymph node dissemination as a rationale for elective lymphatic target volume definition.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Regional nodal metastasis after neoadjuvant chemoradiation of adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) predicts survival. We aimed to clarify the lymph node (LN) distribution of AEG according to location of the tumor mass and invasion of neighboring areas for the selection of radiotherapy planning target volume (PTV) margins. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Patterns of regional spread were analyzed in pathology reports of 326 patients patients with AEG who had undergone primary r...
