Abstract

We sought to examine the impact of hospital surgical volume on the number of nodes harvested and survival in colorectal cancer (CRC). Between January 1994 and December 2004, a total of 8567 patients with T1, 2, 3, and 4 primary tumors and N0, N1, or N2 disease were studied. Hospitals were stratified into very low volume (VLV) (
