Predictors of resectability on preoperative CT were evaluated in 133 pts undergoing resection for thymoma over a 13 year period in a single institution.  60% of pts were Masaoka stage I or II.  17% of pts had an incomplete resection.  On multivariate analysis, pleural nodularity and the degree of abutment of adjacent vessels predicted incomplete resection.
