Value of surgical resection in children with high-risk neuroblastoma.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

BACKGROUND: The value of gross total resection (GTR) for children with high-risk neuroblastoma (NB) is controversial. We hypothesized that patients undergoing GTR would demonstrate improved overall survival (OS) compared those having 90% resection compared to <90% resection (P = 0.008). Multivariable Cox models confirmed these findings with improved survival in children undergoing >90% vs. <90% resection but no difference in GTR vs. 90% resection is associated with improved OS compared to less than 90% resection.
