    A multidisciplinary team approach is mandatory for the management of extremity soft tissue sarcomas. Poorly performed biopsies with atypical incisions and biopsy complications compromise the subsequent management of extremity soft tissue sarcomas. A thorough radiologic assessment is required...

    Over the past three decades, there have been remarkable advances in the treatment of bone and soft tissue sarcomas. These include the introduction of adjuvant chemotherapy, establishment of guidelines for adequate surgical margins, and the development of post-excision reconstruction. There have...

    Biopsy, staging, preoperative imaging and planning, as well as surgical treatment of soft-tissue sarcomas, are best carried out in specialized sarcoma centers, with the support of a multidisciplinary tumor board. Tumor bed excision is recommended after most unplanned excisions, with a goal of...

    Ewing's sarcoma most commonly arises from bone but may also arise from soft tissues. Sarcoma of the inferior vena cava is a rare entity that requires multimodal therapy including surgical resection and vascular reconstruction. We describe the first reported case of Ewing's sarcoma of the...

    Alveolar soft-part sarcoma is a highly vascular soft-tissue tumor that is uniformly malignant. It comprises less than 1 per cent of all soft-tissue sarcomas. Patients with alveolar soft-part sarcoma most frequently are aged 15 to 35 years, and the soft tissues of the lower extremities typically...

    Background: Established prognostic factors influencing survival in soft tissue sarcomas include tumor stage, histopathologic grade, size, depth, and anatomic site. The presence of tumor near or at the margin of resection increases the risk of local recurrence but whether a positive surgical...
