Figure 3

Decision tree constructed by recursive partitioning analysis (test sample). The plots of recursive partitioning analysis (Figure 2 and Figure 3) were obtained from 10,494 patients who were documented to have adenocarcinoma from colon and rectum (anus was not included) and underwent colorectal resection for cancer. (CCI: Charlson comorbidity index; LN: number of lymph nodes; yrs: years; the number in the upper half of box indicated number of patients; the percentage in the upper half of box indicated cancer-specific survival percentage).
