abstract

  • Classification based on grade, completeness of resection, and distant metastasis offers a reproducible prognostic tool that can be used to evaluate treatment strategies for primary retroperitoneal soft-tissue sarcoma. The probability of complete resection was significantly higher in the SCG than in the MCG. In patients with low-grade, completely resected sarcoma, there is a significant survival benefit with treatment in a high-volume tertiary center of excellence.
