Abstract

The optimal management of localized soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities and retroperitoneum involves a high volume multidisciplinary team with expertise in sarcoma. In this review, we will highlight the importance of the sarcoma pathologist and imaging techniques prior to surgery and radiation. In addition, the data on neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy will be discussed. Finally, consideration is given to the importance of identifying genetic cancer predispositions, multidisciplinary management, long-term survivorship, and the current clinical trials for patients undergoing curative intent management.
