Prognostic factors for recurrence and survival in head and neck soft tissue sarcomas
Patients with head and neck sarcomas should undergo wide excision with the removal of all gross disease and the acquisition of negative, microscopic surgical margins. Patients with positive margins should receive adjuvant radiotherapy for local control. High grade lesions place patients at risk for local recurrence and distant dissemination. Investigational regimens designed to prevent metastatic disease should be performed.
