It has been suggested that if the fibroblast activity could be down-regulated during early phase of healing process, the recurrence rate
could be decreased.6 A randomized controlled trial was designed to compare excision of earlobe keloids with intra- and post- operative steroids (group I) versus intra-lesional excision with post-operative steroids (group II).
In a series of 347 patients Zachariae et al reported a recurrence rate
of 34% who were operated upon even in a well-established hand clinic.
It is a distinct clinicopatho- logical entity because of general unicystic radiographic appearance associated with an unerupted tooth typical histologic findings common in the mandible of younger patients and low recurrence rate
after conservative surgical treatment than that of its other counterparts.
Telephone contact at 1, 3, and 6 months of follow-up revealed cumulative recurrence rates
of 19%, 36%, and 49%, respectively, in the 3-day group.
Although the team had suspected that recurrence rates
would be higher in older patients, age did not appear to make individuals more susceptible to another round of the disease.
Of 32 patients less than 30 years old, athletes had an 82% recurrence rate
as compared with 30% in nonathletes.
It can completely remove the tumors and prevent recurrence, thus reducing the postoperative recurrence rate
. In the present study, group B had 10 cases of recurrence and a 20.0% recurrence rate
, which was lower than that of group A; however, this difference was not statistically significant (P>0.05).
"If you do total margin control surgery on your perineural invasive cases, you're going to drop your recurrence rate
by two-thirds, and that's a really big difference."
Yet, it is also known that urethral stricture is quite tough condition to cure, as its recurrence rate
is quite high especially in patient who have gone through endoscopic optical urethrotomy7.
By comparison, the recurrence rate
for cancer-related VTE at 6 months was 9.06.
It has high incidence and high recurrence rate
We found that radiation does significantly reduce the risk for recurrence, but you are starting with an extremely low recurrence rate
even without radiation.
