Cardiac Angiosarcoma Management and Outcomes: 20-Year Single-institution Experience
PurposeTo identify the clinicopathologic characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of a series of patients with primary cardiac angiosarcoma (AS).MethodsThis retrospective case series was set in aExpand
Proton-Beam, Intensity-Modulated, and/or Intraoperative Electron Radiation Therapy Combined with Aggressive Anterior Surgical Resection for Retroperitoneal Sarcomas
BackgroundWe sought to reduce local recurrence for retroperitoneal sarcomas by using a coordinated strategy of advanced radiation techniques and aggressive en-bloc surgicalExpand
Prognostic Factors and Outcomes of Patients with Myxofibrosarcoma
BackgroundMyxofibrosarcomas (MFS) are a historically heterogeneous group of tumors that exhibit a propensity for local recurrence. The objectives of this study were to analyze the prognostic factorsExpand
Role of Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy in the Staging of Synovial, Epithelioid, and Clear Cell Sarcomas
BackgroundSoft tissue sarcomas generally have a ≤5% risk of lymph node metastasis, but synovial, epithelioid, and clear cell subtypes reportedly have a much higher risk. The utility of sentinel lymphExpand
MRI surveillance following treatment of extremity soft tissue sarcoma
Local recurrence (LR) following limb‐sparing surgery and radiation therapy (RT) for extremity soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is rare. The current study investigates the utility of surveillance nuclearExpand
Risk of radiotherapy-associated autoimmune bullous disease among Taiwanese patients with breast cancer: a case–control study
This study aimed to evaluate the association of autoimmune bullous diseases [bullous pemphigoid (BP) and pemphigus vulgaris (PV)] with radiotherapy (RT) among patients with breast cancer from aExpand
Role of post‐operative radiation boost for soft tissue sarcomas with positive margins following pre‐operative radiation and surgery
The role of a radiation therapy (RT) boost for positive margins following pre‐operative RT and surgery in extremity soft tissue sarcomas (STS) is unclear. We assessed the contribution of a boost toExpand
Surgical placement of biologic mesh spacers prior to external beam radiation for retroperitoneal and pelvic tumors.
PURPOSE To determine the feasibility of surgical placement of biologic mesh spacers to displace bowel and other radiation-sensitive organs prior to external beam radiation for difficultExpand
Retroperitoneal Sarcoma (RPS) High Risk Gross Tumor Volume Boost (HR GTV Boost) Contour Delineation Agreement Among NRG Sarcoma Radiation and Surgical Oncologists
PurposeCurative intent management of retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS) requires gross total resection. Preoperative radiotherapy (RT) often is used as an adjuvant to surgery, but recurrence rates remainExpand
Using hematogram model to predict future metabolic syndrome in elderly: a 4-year longitudinal study
Abstract Objectives: The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is proposed to predict future occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. There are some other “non-traditional” risk factors such asExpand
