Operation or operation with irradiation produced the only longtime survivors. The number of candidates for resection can probably be increased by preoperative irradiation. Considering the lack of good methods of early detection, the technical problems of the fraility of the tissues involved and their locations, the survival time of the resected patients was surprisingly good...
