abstract

  • Histological grade, local recurrence size, and local recurrence-free interval are independently predictive of survival in patients with locally recurrent extremity STS. A large local recurrence that develops in a short interval indicates a biologically aggressive tumor with a high tumor-specific mortality. Patients who develop such recurrences are ideal subjects for systemic neoadjuvant therapy trials.
