abstract

  • The UE site is associated with a greater rate of local recurrence compared with the LE. This difference was independent of other variables and could not be accounted for by an imbalance between the two groups. With a lower wound complication rate associated with an UE site, it would be of interest to determine whether preoperative RT and/or intensity-modulated RT can increase the local control in UE sarcomas, thus improving the therapeutic ratio.
