abstract

  • Clinical stage I and IIA patients with normal markers who have low-volume nodal metastases have a low incidence of relapse and can be managed by observation only if compliance can be assured. In contrast, patients with elevated markers before retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy have a high rate of relapse and should be considered for primary chemotherapy.
