Abstract

Of 131 patients with primary Ewing's sarcoma (ES) with extremity locations, treated between April 1972 and May 1987, 13 had amputation; 56 had a local resection with 31 (55%) requiring radiation therapy (RT) as an adjuvant to local therapy. Sixty-two of 131 patients (47%) had RT only. Local recurrences were reported in 5% of patients treated with surgery alone, 1% of the group treated with surgery and radiation therapy, 24% of patients treated with radiation therapy alone (46% for cesium-radiation therapy, and 12% with cobalt-radiation therapy).
