Abstract

Background: The purpose of this study was to analyze improvements in overall survival over 21 years (1982-2002), with a 5-year minimum follow-up, in the largest series from a single center ever reported. Materials and methods: All diagnoses of high-grade osteosarcoma were included despite histological varieties, age, site and stage. Of the 1656 cases observed, 198 patients were excluded (41 consultation only, 129 low-grade varieties, and 28 lost to follow-up). Within 1458 included patients, 1032 had characteristics to be enrolled in conventional clinical trials (classic histology, age
