Predicting Teratoma in the Retroperitoneum in Men Undergoing Post-Chemotherapy Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Lymph Node Excision
Neoplasms, Germ Cell and Embryonal
Teratoma remains a common histological finding in the retroperitoneal lymph nodes following chemotherapy. We have identified several pre-retroperitoneal lymph node dissection variables that predict the finding of teratoma in the retroperitoneum for men treated with chemotherapy for metastatic nonseminomatous germ cell tumors.
