Surgery is a general medical procedure performed worldwide. During surgical procedure, definitive diagnosis of the condition plays an important role. Specifically, the pathological findings are usually required for defining the final diagnosis which shows the importance of pathological examination. Hence, the intraoperative pathological examination becomes an important diagnostic approach for a surgeon. In some cases, such as those with tumor, the definitive diagnosis of the pathological condition is essential for deciding the particular upcoming surgical procedure to be performed. There are several new markers in intraoperative pathological examination.[1] Interpretation of the test requires the knowledge on the advanced laboratory analysis. Translational medicine plays an important role for this purpose. Translating the findings observed from the histopathological examination on the novel biomarker into the clinical diagnosis is a real challenge for the surgeon. Precise translation helps diagnose and predict the patient's condition, thus it is important for future operative management.[2] Surgeons need to update their knowledge to correspond to the influx of new technology. Bridging the basic knowledge into the clinical practice is a real necessary proficiency of the surgeon in the present day![3]
