Sample text

For pN, a selective neck dissection will ordinarily include six or more lymph nodes, and a radical or modified radical neck dissection will ordinarily include ten or more lymph nodes. Negative pathologic examination of a lesser number of nodes still mandates a pN0 designation. Extracapsular spread (ECS) has been recognized to worsen the adverse outcome associated with nodal metastasis. The presence of ECS can be diagnosed clinically by the presence of a “matted” mass of nodes, fixity to overlying skin, adjacent soft tissue, or clinical signs of cranial nerve invasion.

These data are used both because they are realistic in terms of the actual survival rates they yield and because they encompass a number of cases that might be seen in a single large tumor registry over a comparable number of years. They are intended only to illustrate the methodology and concepts of survival analysis. SEER results from 1973 to 1997 are more fully described elsewhere. These illustrations are not intended and should not be used or cited as an analysis of patterns of survival in breast and lung cancer in the USA.

It is most useful when data are only available in grouped categories as described in the next section. The Kaplan–Meier estimate utilizes individual survival times for each patient and is preferable when data are available in this form. The specific method of computation, that is, life table or Kaplan–Meier, used for a specific study should always be clearly indicated in the report to avoid any confusion associated with the use of less precise terminology. Rates computed by different methods are not directly comparable, and when the survival experiences of different patient groups are compared, the different rates must be computed by the same method.
