OBJECTIVE: To determine the prognostic significance of histologic type/subtype in a large series of patients with primary resected retroperitoneal sarcoma. BACKGROUND: The histologic diversity and rarity of retroperitoneal sarcoma has hampered the ability to predict patient outcome. METHODS: From a single-institution, prospective database, 675 patients treated surgically for primary, nonmetastatic retroperitoneal sarcoma during 1982 to 2010 were identified and histologic type/subtype was reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The management of rare tumors is difficult because of limited information on natural history. Our objective was to describe a long-term comprehensive prospective database with the assumption that with careful attention to patient, predisposing tumor and treatment variables, valuable knowledge could be obtained that could guide management. METHODS: In July of 1982, we began a prospective database of all adult patients admitted to our institution for a surgical procedure for soft tissue sarcoma...

BACKGROUND: Based on review of patient data in case conferences over time, we hypothesized that clinically relevant data are omitted in routine soft tissue sarcoma staging. METHODS: We examined subsets of a prospectively collected single institution soft tissue sarcoma database with respect to criteria of the AJCC versions 6 (2002) and 7 (2010) staging systems and examined their clinical outcomes. RESULTS: Relapse-free survival decreases with increasing primary tumor size in four categories, versus two categories used in AJCC 6 and 7 staging...

BACKGROUND: Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) occur sporadically, after prior radiation therapy (RT), or in association with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). It is controversial whether patients with NF1-associated MPNST have worse outcomes. We investigated the prognostic significance of sporadic, NF1-associated, and RT-induced MPNST. METHODS: Patients with primary high-grade MPNST from 1982 to 2011 were identified from a prospectively maintained database...

PURPOSE To determine the prognostic significance of histologic type in radiation-associated soft tissue sarcomas (RASs) and determine whether RASs are associated with an inferior prognosis compared with sporadic soft tissue sarcomas (STSs). PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred thirty primary RASs were identified from 7,649 STS patients from 1982 to 2007. Multivariate analysis of clinicopathologic factors for disease-specific survival (DSS) was performed for RASs, and a multivariate analysis of radiation exposure was also performed for RASs and sporadic sarcomas...
