From: Prognostic significance of enlarged paraaortic lymph nodes detected during left-sided colorectal cancer surgery: a single-center retrospective cohort study

Variables Pathologic PALNM
OR (95% CI) p
Clinical T stage (cT4 vs. cT1–3) 3.182 (0.865–11.701) 0.081
Clinical N stage (cN2 vs. cN0–1) 2.705 (0.577–12.671) 0.207
Radiologic PALNM (positive vs. negative) 12.737 (3.472–46.723) < 0.001
Radiologic DM other than PALNM (positive vs. negative) 4.090 (1.011–16.539) 0.048
