We identified factors predictive of outcome for recurrent differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Fifty-seven patients with local (LR), regional (RRec), and/or distant recurrence (DR) of 431 recurrent DTCs were studied. Disease-specific survival (DSS) rate was estimated with the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate comparisons were conducted by log-rank and Cox regression analysis. The median follow-up was 13 years. Distribution of the first relapse was LR only (35%), LR and RRec… CONTINUE READING
