Reporting Groups
  Description
Imatinib Mesylate Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily. Treatment continues for 8 weeks in the absence of disease progression. Patients with disease progression are considered for immediate surgical resection. Otherwise, after 8 weeks, patients undergo surgical resection to debulk all gross tumor. Two to four weeks after surgery, patients receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily for 2 years.
