Abstract

To optimize the therapeutic value of an operation for cancer, surgeons must weigh survival value against mortality/morbidity risk. As a result of several prospective, randomized trials, many surgeons feel that international opinion has reached a consensus. Reflexively radical surgical hubris has certainly given way to a more nuanced, customized approach to this disease. But issues remain. This article critically reviews existing data and emphasizes areas of continued controversy.
