Complete resection best option for pulmonary metastases in STS

Posted on

Complete resection of pulmonary metastatic lesions in patients with soft tissue sarcomas appears to be the most effective method for long-term survival, according to a study.

In this study, researchers analyzed data from 8 retrospective studies including 1004 patients with pulmonary metastases and metastasectomy. Leiomyosarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, and synovial sarcoma were the most common histological types. Overall, 5-year survival ranged from 20-58% with fewer metastases, longer disease-free interval, and R0 resection resulting in better survival in most cases.
