Özet

Objective: Recent studies show that the number of excised lymph nodes is an independent prognostic factor for colorectal cancer. Based on this information, lymph node ratio (the ratio of metastatic lymph node number to the total excised lymph node number) is a reliable marker for determining prognosis in colorectal cancer. In this study, we aimed to study the prognostic effect of lymph node ratio in non-metastatic colorectal cancers from patients who underwent surgery in our hospital between January 2008 and January 2013.
