abstract

  • In patients with 1(o) and metastatic liver cancer, the incidence of truly occult metastatic disease to perihepatic lymph nodes is low. Routine sampling of perihepatic lymph nodes will therefore have a low yield in patients without some evidence of disease on preoperative CT or PET scans or at the time of exploration.
