HSR19-092: Adjuvant Radiotherapy Is Associated with Improved Overall Survival for Resected Alveolar Ridge Squamous Cell Carcinoma With Adverse Pathologic Features

Corbin D. Jacobs, Daniel J. Rocke, Russel R. Kahmke, Hannah Williamson, Gita Suneja, and Yvonne M. Mowery

Background: Alveolar ridge (AR) squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is poorly represented on prospective clinical trials. Adjuvant management is extrapolated from more common head and neck SCC, including those with a stronger influence from the human
