abstract

  • We conclude that patients with a preoperative EUS stage T1 or T2 are at low risk for postoperative recurrence, while patients with EUS stage T3 or T4 are at high risk for early postoperative recurrence. The latter patients are reasonable candidates for controlled trials of alternative preoperative management programs, such as chemotherapy, in an effort to improve their poor prognosis.
