METHODS AND MATERIALS In this retrospective study, univariate and multivariate prognostic factor analyses for local recurrence and distant recurrence were carried out in 502 patients. RESULTS During the median observation time of 77 months (range, 24-191 months), 14 patients (2.8%) had local recurrence and 55 (11.0%) had distant recurrence.
