This single institution study evaluated prognostic factors in 262 pts undergoing thymectomy for thymic tumors over a 25-year period.  The majority of tumors were Masaoka stage II and the most common histology was WHO type B.  15 year survival was 91%.  Recurrence was related to Masaoka stage and tumor size.
