It is key to understand the entire problematic lymph pathways while appearing surgical procedure for esophageal melanoma that allows you to ascertain the level of lymph node metastasis. Professor Sato has undertaken, on the request of the TNM learn Committee of the foreign Society for illnesses of the Esophagus, to map out and classify the lymph nodes of the mediastinum and neck. the attractive paintings within the Color Atlas of Surgical Anatomy for Esophageal Cancer edited by means of Professor Sato offers a good realizing of the lymph node pathways and their significance in surgical operation. Minute dissections which signify genuine lifestyles events, not only the superficial pathways, convey the right situation and topographical association of the lymphatics. Full-color schematics are given with the particular dissection illustrations and pictures. The atlas truly provides the type of 4 major pathways and their communique, the connection of those pathways en path to the venous angles and the definition and evaluation of the main serious nodes. Thoracic surgeons particularly will enjoy the very good illustrations of surgical strategies and the tools for recording the dissected lymph nodes that are offered by way of Professor Kakegawa. major specialists battling esophageal melanoma with surgical operation can use the category during this amazing atlas for a few years to return as a regular for overseas comparability. The cautious dissection of the lymph nodes could be the top solution to enhance survival premiums after surgical procedure for melanoma of the thoracic esophagus.

W¥ node 3 4 5 34 T. Sato and K. Sakamoto Fig. 6 This is a close-up view of the right paratracheal area. The subclavian artery has been cut and moved away. The node on the upper left of the photograph is the above-mentioned right recurrent nerve node. Two longitudinal node chains are visible. The anterior chain bifurcates into a left superficially extending chain and into a deep chain which communicates with the right recurrent nerve nodes. The other longitudinal chain (marked by the inlaid black papers) also communicates with the right recurrent nerve nodes.

Each pathway may then be subdivided into a superficial pathway along the major blood vessels and a deep pathway along the trachea and esophagus. Here, in order to more clearly understand the location and communication of the complicated mediastinal lymph nodes, these pathways are used to facilitate the detailed description. Regarding the terminology of the mediastinal lymph nodes, although numerous systems of organized nomenclature have been proposed, there has not been an agreement to date on anyone set of terms.
