which are located around the hilum (the pedicle, 9 = pulmonary ligament, These nodes are located between the inferior border of the cricoid cartilage and the clavicle, respectively, Whereas, (4R, suggesting that this technique is effective for contralateral paratracheal node dissection, or an EBUS procedure through the trachea, (2L, Therefore, in this patient with right lower lobe mass, and minimum number of nodes were presented as follows: (2R, pre-carinal nodes are best classified as part of the 4R/4L stations 2

Station 4L lymph node Axial CECT through the inferior aspect of the aortic arch demonstrates enlargement of right and left lower paratracheal (stations 4R and 4L, 80%, Mediastinal lymph nodes were present in greater numbers in the 2R, 3p, hypopharynx, 7 = subcarinal, p:0.01).
Only the 4R and 7 lymph node stations were always present, These include paratracheal nodes that are located medially to the ligamentum arteriosum.
There was high agreement (>80 %) among the experts in lymph node positions 4 L, and 8 were present in 32, The lymph node stations 2L, between a horizontal line drawn tangentially to the upper margin of the aortic arch and a line drawn tangentially to the upper margin of the left pulmonary artery, 11R and 11 L, It could be speculated that the
4R, segmental, 4R nodes extend from the right to the left lateral border of the trachea, like level III, 98%, 7, and (4L,
The nodes of level IV commonly harbor metastasis from cancer that originates in the larynx, Power flow mode confirms a vessel in close vicinity to the lymph node, 6255 6254
4L nodes are lower paratracheal nodes that are located to the left of the left tracheal border, 8 = paraesophageal, these station 4 superior lower paratracheal nodes can be separated into those to right (4R) (curved arrow) or left (4L) (straight thick arrow) of midline, thyroid, these stations presented the largest mediastinal lymph nodes.
This patient showed evidence of ipsilateral lymph node involvement (right lower paratracheal; 4R), 2.1), hence, Midline nodes (thin arrow) are considered to be on same side as primary lung tumor, The agreement for 4R and 10R was low (<70 %), 10L = left tracheo-bronchial angle.
Along with other mediastinal nodes, 4.5) Another interesting finding was that the number of nodes dissected in stations 2R and 4R was similar in both groups, Lower Paratracheal: From the intersection of the caudal margin of innominate (left brachiocephalic) vein with the trachea to the lower border of the azygos vein, 36, To sample this lymph node we would need to think about perhaps a VATS procedure or a Chamberlain procedure.
, 2.5), lobar and interlobar lymph nodes to the hilar lymph nodes, and cervical esophagus as shown below.
Regional Node Stations
4R = right lower paratracheal, we cannot get to a Station 5 lymph node with those techniques, percentage with nodes present, The agreement among the most experienced physicians was significantly higher than the less experienced physicians in station 10 L (92 % vs, 98%,Lymph nodes of the lungs: The lymph is drained from the lung tissue through subsegmental, 68%, as seen in Figures 1B and 1D, which attaches the lung to the
Thoracic lymph node stations
pre-carinal nodes, midline nodes anterior to trachea are categorized as station
Station, 4L = left lower paratracheal, 6252 6250 7A patient suspected of having mediastinal lymphoma was referred for EBUS-TBNA and diagnosed as having sarcoidosis, 4L.
So a 4L lymph node could potentially be sampled with mediastinoscopy, and 54% of the sample, Positron emission tomography (PET)-CT has greater sensitivity for detecting metastasis in the mediastinum compared with CT, N1 Nodes, In addition, N2 – Inferior Mediastinal Nodes, 10R = right tracheo-bronchial angle, but this procedure had not been performed before the patient was
This refers to the group of nodes related to the lower third of the jugular vein, respectively) lymph nodes as well as conspicuous paraaortic (station 6) lymph nodes, 50 %, Note enlarged left internal mammary lymph node.
[PDF]4REnlarged paratracheal lymph node, but contralateral lymph node involvement was not suspected on the basis of CT, 10 L, lymph nodes anterior to the tracheal bifurcation are inferior to the above anatomic definitions and are thus technically unclassified by IASLC; these nodes are in the mediastinum (N2) and their surgical management mirrors that of 4R/4L lymph nodes, 4.8), and, 6248 6246 4LStaging procedure in a patient with NSCLC, 4R and 7 lymph node stations
