In Reply: We excluded 50 patients from the study not because of lost followups (we have investigated the status of all the included patients) but because of insufficient data in their old records or treatments (e.g., missing operation date, start/ end day of radiation, unclear margin status of the pathology report, or incomplete radiation). Those can be minor problems, and the data might have been helpful in increasing the total number of patients in Disclosure: The authors declare no conflicts of interest.
