Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sixty-four patients, 34 with no clinical evidence of disease (NED) and 30 with clinical evidence of disease (ED), were submitted to restaging with peritoneoscopy plus diaphragmatic inspection, peritoneal cytology, and lymphography. Eleven patients (32.2%) in the NED group and 25 (83.3%) in the ED group had positive restaging findings. The 3 diagnostic procedures, in combination, are important in establishing occult disease and therefore in the planning of further treatment.
