OSNA in gastric cancer

  • Precise lymph node analysis providing more accurate staging
  • Easier therapy decisions thanks to reliable diagnostic information
  • CE-marked for gastric, colon and breast cancer
  • Highly productive analyses from multi-cancer application

Informed decisions for therapy depend on accurate staging

Using the sentinel concept often reduces the need for lymphadenectomy. This is true for several different types of cancer, including gastric cancer. In early gastric cancer, lymph node metastasis occurs in some 10-16% of cases1, so patients could benefit from a less invasive surgery. The intraoperative OSNA result can support your immediate decision on further lymph node dissection.

OSNA – benefit from intelligent diagnostics

  • Enables immediate and fully-informed decisions during surgical procedures
  • Confidence not to overlook metastases by analysing the entire lymph node
  • Standardised and observer-independent

OSNA provides a diagnostic ability equivalent to the postoperative histological examination with a concordance rate between the two methods of 0.942 (2).

OSNA was more sensitive in detecting metastases compared to conventional histology, resulting in an upstaging rate of 20%. Some 1,000 lymph nodes were examined and the nodal status could be predicted in all cases, another study concluded (3).

Its accuracy and fast availability of results makes OSNA suitable for early-stage sentinel lymph node analysis and reliable intraoperative decisions.
