NAACCR XML: Tumor.ldhPostOrchiectomyRange


LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) Post-Orchiectomy Range identifies the range category of the lowest LDH value measured post-orchiectomy. LDH is a nonspecific marker for testicular cancer that is elevated in some germ cell tumors. The Post-Orchiectomy lab value is used to monitor response to therapy.


LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) Post-Orchiectomy Range is used to assign the S Category Pathological and was previously collected as Testis CS SSF# 16.


0Within normal limits
1Less than 1.5 x N (Less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
21.5 to 10 x N (Between 1.5 and 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
3Greater than 10 x N (Greater than 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
4Post-Orchiectomy lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) range stated to be elevated
5Post-Orchiectomy lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) unknown or not done but pre-orchiectomy LDH was normal
7Test ordered, results not in chart
8Not applicable: Information not collected for this case (If this information is required by your standard setter, use of code 8 may result in an edit error.)
9Not documented in medical record No orchiectomy performed LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) Post-Orchiectomy Range not assessed or unknown if assessed
