Local and systemic staging using Enneking’s approach identifies patients who may be cured, or at least have a better chance at long-term disease control and reduced mortality with en-bloc resection. 1 However, the adverse-event profile of these surgeries is very high, even at experienced centers. Therefore, we recommend that only experienced, multidisciplinary teams perform them. The need for careful patient selection including detailed preoperative counseling cannot be overstated.
