To identify the clinicopathologic characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of a series of patients with primary cardiac angiosarcoma (AS). This retrospective case series was set in a tertiary referral center with a multidisciplinary clinic. Consecutive patients with institutionally confirmed pathologic diagnosis of cardiac AS from January 1990 to May 2011(More)
Infiltrative growth pattern at the tumor margin has been associated with shorter patient survival. However, little is known about the prognostic significance of tumor growth pattern, independent of tumoral molecular alterations and other histologic features. Utilizing a database of 1139 colon and rectal cancer patients in two prospective cohort studies,(More)
Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is exceedingly rare. The role of adjuvant therapy remains undefined. This study evaluated outcomes after aggressive management. Records on 20 patients undergoing surgery for IVC LMS between January 1990 and April 2006 were retrieved. Histology was confirmed upon re-review. Most patients received(More)
Uterine leiomyosarcoma (ULMS) is an aggressive, rapidly progressive tumor lacking clinical and molecular predictors of outcome. ULMS patients (n = 349) were classified by disease status at presentation to MDACC as having intra-abdominal (n = 157) or distant metastatic disease (n = 192). Patient, tumor, treatment, and outcome variables were retrospectively(More)
Paratesticular liposarcoma (LPS) is a rare entity for which optimal treatment has not been defined. We sought to determine recurrence patterns and prognostic factors. A total of 25 patients with localized paratesticular LPS between 1987 and 2009 were reviewed. Actuarial local-recurrence-free survival (LRFS), disease-free-survival (DFS), and overall survival(More)
