  • OBJECTIVE This study sought to define predictors of recurrence after resection of thymic tumors. METHODS A single-institution retrospective study was performed of 179 patients who underwent resection of a thymic tumor from 1972 through 2003. RESULTS Resection was complete in 90% (161/179) of patients. After a median follow-up of 115 months, the recurrence rate was 11% (20/179), the tumor-related death rate was 7.8% (14/179), and the overall death rate was 36.3% (65/179). Tumor recurrence… CONTINUE READING
