abstract

  • Achievement of complete microscopic resection is critical in localized alveolar soft part sarcoma, but incomplete excision and misdiagnosis are often encountered. Despite the occurrence of metastases in 70% of patients, 5-year overall survival was 83%. We found an association between smaller tumor size and longer time to progression. We were not able to demonstrate any benefit from chemotherapy or radiation. Metastasectomies have been performed in multiple long-term survivors.
