abstract

  • The strong statistical significance that relates a PMM to DM and TM in high-risk STS of the extremity is likely related to biologically aggressive tumors and LSS. Residual microscopic disease is not a guarantee of LR. The main problem in this group of patients is not LR, but DM and subsequent death. Therefore, to increase a disability with further surgery or amputate a patient's limb without clear evidence of LR in this group at high risk for distant recurrence is not recommended.
