Predictors for lymph node metastasis in T1 colorectal cancer
Suh JH et al. – Grade 3, angiolymphatic invasion, budding, and the absence of background adenoma (BGA) are the risk factors that predict LNM in patients with T1 colorectal cancer (CRC). In cases where endoscopically resected T1 CRC has no risk factor, cautious follow–up could be recommended. However, if the tumor has any risk factor, additional surgical resection should be considered.
