Thymic Carcinoma: Outcomes After Surgical Resection
Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 05/10/2012Okereke IC et al.
Although considered to have greater malignant potential, long–term survival can be achieved in patients with thymic carcinoma who are amenable to surgical therapy. With increased use of computed tomography imaging, patients with early–stage disease are being identified more frequently, and complete surgical resection appears to have favorable cure rates in these patients. Select patients with locally advanced disease can experience long–term survival with a multimodality approach.
