Abstract

Adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) is routinely recommended for most soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) of the extremities. However, its impact on local control is not clearly established after wide complete excision. We performed a retrospective analysis of patients who underwent wide resection in our institution (first or second resection in cases of incomplete surgery) and either did or did not receive adjuvant RT. All histological specimens of patients operated upon between 1975 and 1996 were carefully analysed and only patients with free tumour margins (ftm) were retained for the analysis. The histopathological classification was as follows: minimal resection (mR) (ftm
