abstract

  • Complete surgical resection at the time of primary presentation is likely to afford the best chance for long-term survival. With long-term follow-up, it is clear that recurrence will continue to occur, and a 5-year disease-free interval is not a cure. Patients with an incomplete initial resection, age less than 50 years, and high-grade tumors are candidates for investigational adjuvant therapy.
