Current practice for postoperative mediastinal radiotherapy is highly variable, and there is paucity of prospective, multicenter evidence. RYTHMIC is the nationwide network for TET in France, established in 2012. Whether postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) should be delivered was the most frequent question raised at the RYTHMIC multidisciplinary tumor board (MTB) over the past 3 years, accounting for 494 (35%) of a total of 1401 questions. Methods: All consecutive patients for whom postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy was discussed at the RYTHMIC MTB from 2012 to 2015 were identiﬁed from the RYTHMIC prospective database. Results: 285 patients were identiﬁed, 274 (52% men, 48% women) of whom fulﬁlled inclusion criteria. Average age at time of TET diagnostic was 60 years. TET histology was thymoma in 243 (89%) cases - including
type A in 11% of cases, type AB in 28%, type B1 in 17%, type B2 in 29%, and type B3 in 14% -, and thymic carcinoma in 31 (11%) of cases. Complete resection was achieved in 81% of patients. Masaoka-Koga stage was stage I in 29% of cases, IIA in 21%, IIB in 21%, III in 18%, and IVA/B in 11%. Decision of the MTB was consistent with guidelines in 221 (92%) assessable cases. Clinical situations for which PORT was indicated in accordance with guidelines (84 cases) were thymoma/R1 resection (30 patients), thymoma/R0 resection/stage III (22 patients), thymoma/R0 resection/ stage IIB/type B2/B3 histology (11 patients), thymic carcinoma/R1 resection (6 patients), thymic carcinoma/ R0 resection (13 patients), thymoma/R0 resection/stage IIA/type B3 histology (2 patients). Inconsistencies between decision of the MTB and guidelines e 20 (8%) cases - consisted of abstention related to poor general condition (10 patients), carcinoid histology (2 patients), and discordance in staging (1 patient), and of delivery of radiotherapy related to peroperative tumor fragmentation (2 patients); for 5 patients who received PORT, a clear explanation for inconsistency with guidelines was not found, but those cases actually corresponded to those in a “grey zone” of guidelines. MTB decision for PORT was actually implemented for 99 (85%) of patients; most frequent reason for not delivering radiotherapy was prolonged delay since surgery. Conclusion: Our data provide with a unique insight into the decision-making process for PORT in thymic epithelial tumors, highlighting the need for a systematic discussion at an expert MTB, while stressing the value of current available guidelines.
