abstract

  • The 7% LR rate after treatment of STS with FSS without RT reported herein is comparable to published rates following treatment where adjuvant RT is used. These results suggest there may be a select subset of patients with STS in whom carefully performed FSS may serve as definitive therapy and in whom adjuvant RT may not be necessary. However, further study is needed to carefully define this subset of patients and to identify the optimal surgical approach and technique for patients treated without RT.
