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.
|0||Within normal limits|
|1||Less than 1.5 x N
(Less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
|2||1.5 to 10 x N
(Between 1.5 and 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
|3||Greater than 10 x N
(Greater than 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
|4||Post-Orchiectomy lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) range stated to be elevated|
|5||Post-Orchiectomy lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) unknown or not done but pre-orchiectomy LDH was normal|
|7||Test ordered, results not in chart|
|8||Not 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.)
|9||Not documented in medical record
No orchiectomy performed
LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) Post-Orchiectomy Range not assessed or unknown if assessed
