Clinical score for predicting recurrence after hepatic resection for metastatic colorectal cancer: analysis of 1001 consecutive cases.
There is a need for clearly defined and widely applicable clinical criteria for the selection of patients who may benefit from hepatic resection for metastatic colorectal cancer and studies of preoperative staging techniques or of adjuvant therapies should consider using such a score for stratification of patients.
Two hundred gastrointestinal stromal tumors: recurrence patterns and prognostic factors for survival.
Tumor size predicts disease-specific survival in patients with primary disease who undergo complete gross resection and investigational protocols are indicated to reduce the rate of recurrence after resections and to improve the outcome for patients with GIST.

The data demonstrate that the natural history of MCC is variable and dependent on the stage of disease at presentation, and pathologic nodal staging identifies a group of patients with excellent long-term survival.
Retroperitoneal soft-tissue sarcoma: analysis of 500 patients treated and followed at a single institution.
In this study of patients with retroperitoneal STS, stage at presentation, high histologic grade, unresectable primary tumor, and positive gross margin are strongly associated with the tumor mortality rate.
Adjuvant imatinib mesylate after resection of localised, primary gastrointestinal stromal tumour: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
Clinicopathologic correlates of solitary fibrous tumors
To the authors's knowledge, there are no large series reporting both thoracic and extrathoracic SFTs nor are there any large series that analyze clinicopathologic correlates of tumor behavior.
Analysis of prognostic factors in 1,041 patients with localized soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities.
Patients with microscopically positive surgical margins or patients who present with locally recurrent disease are at increased risk for subsequent local recurrence and tumor-related mortality.
Histologic Subtype and Margin of Resection Predict Pattern of Recurrence and Survival for Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma
The histologic subtype and margin of resection are prognostic for survival in primary retroperitoneal liposarcoma and may be needed to achieve complete resection but has no measurable influence on disease specific survival.
Hepatic arterial infusion of chemotherapy after resection of hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer.
For patients who undergo resection of liver metastases from colorectal cancer, postoperative treatment with a combination of hepatic arterial infusion of floxuridine and intravenous fluorouracil improves the outcome at two years.

No survival advantage could be demonstrated for patients who received chemo and/or radiotherapy, although numbers are small and staging not uniform, and an evaluation by electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry cannot confirm recent claims that ASPS is a muscle tumor.
