start of 1:1-Block public summary

Brief Summary in Lay Language

This is a retrospective, open, monocentric, in vitro study.
The aim of the study is to detect micrometastases in pulmonary and mediastinal lymph nodes by
means of molecular detection after metastasectomy, which have been diagnosed without tumor in
the simple sectional diagnosis.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Colorectal carcinoma is a malignant tumor of the intestine or rectum. It is the second most common malignancy of the woman and the third most common malignancy of the male, whereby it is the second most common cause of death in Germany.
Tumor growth has already taken place in up to 25% of the cases of diagnoses, while liver and lung are the most frequently affected organs. The lymph nodes in the lung are not radically removed during metastasectomy. The examination of the lymph nodes taken is performed by H.E. Coloring. Studies using immunohistochemical and / or genetic methods, the lymph nodes taken during primary tumor surgery, have shown that micrometastases occur in lymph nodes and have a negative effect on the survival rate and relapse rate. There is currently no investigation of pulmonary / mediastinal lymph nodes in metastatic colorectal carcinoma. A higher recurrence rate and / or poorer survival rate was described in studies which produced positive lymph node detection in pulmonary metastasesctomy by means of only intersection diagnosis and H.E. staining. Therefore, the aim is to detect micrometastases in pulmonary and mediastinal lymph nodes by means of molecular detection after metastasectomy, which have been diagnosed without tumor in the simple sectional diagnosis. This study, which can show a link between micrometastases in lymph nodes after pulmonary metastasisctomy and reduced survival rate and / or increased recurrence rate, can lead to better therapy, in the sense of extended oncological aftertreatment, modification of the surgical technique or also avoidance of over-therapy.
