Title:
Topography of lymph node metastases in prostate cancer patients undergoing radical prostatectomy and extended lymphadenectomy: results of a combined molecular and histopathologic mapping study. 
Abstract:
To determine the anatomic extent of pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) in prostate cancer (PCa) patients at the time of radical prostatectomy (RP), knowledge about the topography of lymph node (LN) metastases is required.Because small-volume LN metastases may be missed by standard histopathologic examination, we performed an anatomic mapping study combining molecular and histopathologic LN examination in PCa patients treated with RP and extended PLND (ePLND).A total of 52 patients with intermed...    »
