  • BACKGROUND This study assessed the influence of extrathyroid extension (EE) on cause-specific mortality (CSM) and tumor recurrence (TR) in patients treated for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). METHODS We studied outcome in 3,524 patients with PTC without distant metastases at diagnosis. CSM and TR were investigated in 422 patients with gross EE (GEE) or microscopic EE (MEE). RESULTS The 30-year CSM rate for GEE of 25% was 12-fold greater (P < .001) than 2% seen with surgically intra… CONTINUE READING
