ABSTRACT

Adult soft-tissue sarcomas are relatively rare and one must often rely on the published experience of others when deciding how to deal with such tumors. Unfortunately, these reports often contain small numbers of patients, or are summaries of results from many institutions wherein treatment practices vary widely.

Section 1 provides an in-depth discussion of the epidemiology, cause, classification, diagnosis, pathology, and staging. Section 2 describes various treatment modalities. Excellent line drawings of various radical soft-part resections and amputations are provided, as are the indications for each procedure.
