Cytopathologic evaluation of the in situ margin in patients undergoing hepatectomy
Cancer Cytopathology, 05/21/2012
Jones NB et al. – To the authors' knowledge, the current study is the first to demonstrate that in situ margins can be assessed using cytopathology. This method is quick and can be universally applied. Given the difficulty of accurately assessing margins after hepatectomy, cytopathologic evaluation may be more reflective of the true margin.
