Nomograms based on Cox models to predict 5-year overall survival. a TNM base model; (b) model combining TNM parameters with categorically coded tumor length; (c) model combining TNM parameters with continuously coded tumor length. Instructions: The nomogram allows the users to obtain 5-year overall survival probability corresponding to a patient's clinicopathological characteristics. Locate the patient's characteristic on the variable row and draw a vertical straight up to the points row to assign a value of points for the variable. Add up the total points and drop a vertical line from the total points row to obtain 5-year overall survival
