From 2001 to 2010, a total of 447 patients were recorded in Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) International MesotheliomaProgramPatient DataRegistryashavinghadextrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP). Patterns of recurrence among 169 (38%) who had undergone initial EPP are reported. The remaining 62% of patients, treated initially with chemotherapy, were excluded as ‘‘a distinct cohort with poorer prognosis.’’ Median survival was 15 months for the EPP-first patients, and evidently shorter 1 for the remaining 62%.
