Purpose: Few reports have been published on the evaluation of stem cell auto transplantation for chemosensitive sarcomas.
Some suggest benefit, others do not. We present results of 24 patients with sarcoma undergoing autotransplantation at a
Canadian institution.Patients and...
Introduction. Adult pelvic soft tissue sarcomas are a rare group of heterogeneous malignancies. These sarcomas differ from
extremity and trunk soft tissue sarcomas in presentation, characteristics and response to treatment.Methods. A retrospective analysis of patient and tumor...
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is an uncommon, slow growing and locally aggressive tumor of the skin with
a high rate of recurrence even after supposedly wide excision. The reports of regional lymph node metastasis and distant
metastasis are very rare. Because of the extreme rarity of...
Purpose: Controversy exists as to whether sartorius muscle is completely invested in fascia. If it is, then direct tumour
involvement from soft tissue sarcoma of the anterior thigh would be unlikely and would justify omitting sartorius from the
radiotherapy volume.Subjects and...
Introduction: Leiomyosarcoma of the venous system is rare, even more so in the greater saphenous vein. In the 85 years since
van Ree described the first case in 1919 only 25 cases have been reported in the world.Methods: We describe a case of an 85-year-old woman who was...
We report a technique of implantation of the ipsilateral vascularized fibula with pasteurized recycled bone after excision of
tibia sarcoma in two cases. Plate and screws were used for osteosynthesis of the tibia or talus, vascularized fibula, and
pasteurized bone. Microsurgery is not necessary...
We present a case of giant osteofibrous dysplasia (OFB) of the proximal tibia with 15 years of follow-up. The tumor recurred
after first biopsy and curettage done at the age of 6 years and, again, 4 years later. Following recurrence, the option of
amputation was suggested. Staged treatment of...
Primary pleural angiosarcoma is an extremely rare tumor. We report the case of a patient who presented with recurrent
massive bilateral hemothoraxes. Although thoracoscopy was performed, biopsy samples of the pleura were inconclusive.
The delayed onset of skin metastases led to the diagnosis of...
Purpose. Following limb conserving surgery for bone or soft tissue sarcoma, patients may require post-operative radiotherapy
to minimise the risk of local recurrence. In such circumstances the metal prosthesis reduces the dose in its shadow by
approximately 10% when using opposed...
