Lymphatic drainage from the liver to extrahepatic lymph nodes follows a complex and unpredictable pathway. To add to the complexity of management of regional lymph nodes in hepatic malignancies, not all liver cancers have the same propensity to metastasize through lymphatics. Lymphadenectomy has had mixed results in terms of improving patient survival. Other therapies especially anti-lymphogenic agents might play a role in the near future.||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/19136||DOI:||10.1111/ans.13662||Journal:||ANZ Journal of Surgery||PubMed URL:||27302217||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||liver neoplasms
