BackgroundLimb-salvage surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy are performed as a treatment of appendicular osteosarcoma in dogs. Approximately 50% of dogs that undergo limb-salvage surgery develop postoperative surgical wound infections. Postoperative surgical infections may affect survival in cancer patients. The purposes of this study were to examine the effect of surgical wound infection on survival, local recurrence, and metastasis in relation to other prognostic factors for dogs with… Expand
Effect of surgical site infection on survival after limb amputation in the curative‐intent treatment of canine appendicular osteosarcoma: a Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncology retrospective study
TLDR
The extended survival associated with SSI after limb-spare surgery for OSA does not appear to be present after amputation, and interactions between the canine immune system and OSA warrant additional study. Expand
Postoperative Infection and Survival in Osteosarcoma Patients
TLDR
It is suggested that the reported positive effect on survival is likely to be related to the clinical characteristics of infected patients rather than an antitumor effect due to the infection. Expand
Predictors of outcome in dogs treated with adjuvant carboplatin for appendicular osteosarcoma: 65 cases (1996-2006).
TLDR
Carboplatin administration was well tolerated and resulted in a disease-free interval and median survival time similar to those of other published protocols. Expand
Post Operative Infection and Increased Survival in Osteosarcoma Patients: Are They Associated?
Despite neo-adjuvant chemotherapy osteosarcomas having significant mortality, recent studies have shown survival advantages following infections for some tumour types. This study investigates theExpand
Analysis of outcome in dogs that undergo secondary amputation as an end-point for managing complications related to limb salvage surgery for treatment of appendicular osteosarcoma.
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of dogs diagnosed with histologically confirmed OSA treated with surgical limb salvage with a technique that required an implant to reconstruct the osseous defect found dogs that underwent secondary amputation had a significantly longer median disease specific survival time (ST) compared with the control group. Expand
Post Operative Infection and Increased Survival in Osteosarcoma Patients: Are They Associated?
TLDR
There was evidence for increased survival after deep post-operative infection in osteosarcoma patients, in keeping with other research, and the authors feel this warrants further investigation. Expand
Prognosis for dogs with stage III osteosarcoma following treatment with amputation and chemotherapy with and without metastasectomy.
TLDR
Survition times of selected dogs with metastatic (stage III) osteosarcoma were determined to determine whether disease-free interval (DFI) was associated with survival time after diagnosis of stage III disease, and whether a survival benefit of metastasectomy existed. Expand
Evaluation of a single subcutaneous infusion of carboplatin as adjuvant chemotherapy for dogs with osteosarcoma: 17 cases (2006-2010).
OBJECTIVE To evaluate adverse effects and survival times in dogs with osteosarcoma that received a single SC infusion of carboplatin as adjunctive chemotherapeutic treatment following limb amputationExpand
Postoperative infection and survival in osteosarcoma patients: Reconsideration of immunotherapy for osteosarcoma.
TLDR
Findings suggested infection was likely to have positive effects on survival in osteosarcoma patients, however, underlying mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Expand
Prognostic factors in canine appendicular osteosarcoma – a meta-analysis
TLDR
Both elevated SALP level and the (proximal) humerus as location of the primary tumor are significant negative prognostic factors for both ST and DFI in dogs with appendicular osteosarcoma. Expand

Results of surgery and doxorubicin chemotherapy in dogs with osteosarcoma.
TLDR
Thirty-five dogs with appendicular osteosarcoma were treated with 5 doses of doxorubicin and three dogs were alive and did not have evidence of disease at the time of reporting, and the proportion of dogs euthanatized because of bone metastases was significantly higher for the study group than for the control group. Expand
Canine osteosarcoma. Treatment by amputation versus amputation and adjuvant chemotherapy using doxorubicin and cisplatin.
TLDR
Thirty-six tumors originated from the appendicular skeleton and two from the axial skeleton, and 19 were treated with amputation and adjuvant chemotherapy consisting of doxorubicin and cisplatin, resulting in 38 dogs diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Expand
Biodegradable Cisplatin Polymer in Limb-Sparing Surgery for Canine Osteosarcoma
TLDR
Local tumor recurrence may be decreased after limb-sparing surgery by use of biodegradable implants impregnated with chemotherapeutic agents, according to univariate analyses. Expand
Treatment of dogs with osteosarcoma by administration of cisplatin after amputation or limb-sparing surgery: 22 cases (1987-1990).
TLDR
Twenty-two dogs with appendicular osteosarcoma were treated by amputation or limb-sparing surgery and all dogs were given cisplatin at 3-week intervals, beginning 1 week after surgery, and dogs euthanatized for problems documented to be related to metastases. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that the immune adjuvant is given at the time of surgical treatment rather than when tumor burden is far advanced, and that the protection from recurrent cancer in these patients afforded by the bacterial contamination may be secondary to activated immune mechanisms. Expand
Relationship of chemotherapy-induced necrosis and surgical margins to local recurrence in osteosarcoma.
TLDR
Chemotherapy-induced tumor necrosis and surgical margins are important prognostic factors for local control of patients with osteosarcoma. Expand
Radiotherapy prior to cortical allograft limb sparing in dogs with osteosarcoma: a dose response assay.
TLDR
Based on the results of this study, radiation therapy can not be recommended as part of limb sparing treatments for patients with osteosarcoma at doses and dose per fraction values similar to those used herein. Expand
Prognosis for dogs with appendicular osteosarcoma treated by amputation alone: 162 cases (1978-1988).
TLDR
Survival time was longest in dogs 7 to 10 years old and was shorter in older and younger dogs, and a significant (P less than 0.01) quadratic relationship was found between age and survival time. Expand

TLDR
This review of the experience with 100 consecutive patients operated on for head and neck cancer found that the development of a postoperative wound infection may have an adverse effect on survival rather than a salutory effect. Expand
Percent tumor necrosis as a predictor of treatment response in canine osteosarcoma
TLDR
Perceived areas of viable tumor tended to be most frequent adjacent to the articular cartilage and in the joint capsule, but there was no correlation between percent tumor necrosis and time to metastasis. Expand
