abstract

  • With long-term follow-up, extent of surgical resection did not affect DFS for patients with borderline and malignant phyllodes tumors. Tumor features, most notably stromal overgrowth, were predictive of recurrence and survival, suggesting these high-risk patients may benefit from additional therapeutic strategies.
