Abstract:Median survival in this cohort was identical to those in the two RCTs that showed survival benefits from surgery. This was significantly longer than that (5.6 months) in the single series demonstrating no benefit. Therefore, our results support the previous evidence of improved outcomes with surgery.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
