BackgroundDesmoid tumors are rare soft-tissue neoplasms with limited data on their management. We sought to determine the rates of recurrence following surgery for desmoid tumors and identify factors predictive of disease-free survival.MethodsBetween January 1983 and December 2011, 211 patients with desmoid tumors were identified from three major surgical centers. Clinicopathologic and treatment characteristics were analyzed to identify predictors of recurrence.ResultsMedian age was 36 years… 

Prognostic factors for desmoid tumor: a surgical series of 233 patients at a single institution

TLDR
Regardless of primary or recurrent disease, surgical resection remains central to the management of patients with desmoid tumors, and a wait-and-see policy is a possible option for a subset of patients.

Surgical Treatment of Pediatric Desmoid Tumors. A 12-Year, Single-Center Experience

TLDR
It is suggested that margin status alone at the time of extirpation is not a predictor of ultimate cure or likelihood of recurrence, as overall survival is excellent in patients with PDT.

Reconstruction of Desmoid Tumors: Case Series and Systematic Review

TLDR
For patients with DT, surgical extirpation should not come at the expense of functional preservation, as overall survival is excellent, however, specific defects, including those of the lower extremity, breast, and head and neck, will benefit from improved techniques for resection and reconstruction.

Sporadic Abdominal Wall Desmoid type Fibromatosis: treatment paradigm after thirty two years

TLDR
Desmoid tumor treatment has been evolving over the past decade towards a more conservative approach, and positive margins represent an important prognostic factor for local tumor recurrence.

The Challenge in the Management of Extremity Fibromatoses: Our Experience

TLDR
The enigmacy on the tumour biology, natural history and optimal management of fibromatoses continue, and surgery remains the standard treatment and should be attempted only if R0 resection is possible without much morbidity to the patient.

Desmoid Tumours of the extremity and trunk. A retrospective study of 44 patients

TLDR
Surgical margins are less important than keeping function in local control rates focusing on the effect of surgical margins and radiotherapy, and the role of adjuvant radiotherapy is controversially discussed.

Toward Observation as First-line Management in Abdominal Desmoid Tumors

TLDR
The multidisciplinary experience of abdominal DT as it relates to nonoperative management is reported, with over half of patients observed required no intervention with prolonged follow-up, therefore representing higher-risk groups.

TLDR
This study clearly demonstrates that there are different prognostic subgroups of desmoid tumors that could benefit from different therapeutic strategies, including a wait-and-see policy.

TLDR
Presence of microscopic disease does not necessarily affect long-term disease-free survival in patients with primary presentation of extra-abdominal desmoid tumors, and function-sparing surgery may be a reasonable choice when feasible without leaving macroscopic residual disease.

TLDR
Increased awareness of the complex multidisciplinary management needed for desmoid tumor control may underlie significantly increased numbers of referrals to UTMDACC, especially primary untreated desmoids.

Desmoid-Type Fibromatosis: A Front-Line Conservative Approach to Select Patients for Surgical Treatment

TLDR
A conservative policy could be a safe approach to primary and recurrent DF, which could avoid unnecessary morbidity from surgery and/or radiation therapy, and a multidisciplinary, stepwise approach should be prospectively tested in DF.

Desmoid tumour: a pleomorphic lesion.

TLDR
Surgical resection alone achieved local control of the tumour in most of the patients in this series and complete excision is the main modality of treatment for primary and recurrent DT.

Desmoid tumor: prognostic factors and outcome after surgery, radiation therapy, or combined surgery and radiation therapy.

TLDR
Wide local excision with negative pathologic margins is the treatment of choice for most desmoid tumors and function-sparing resection is appropriate because adjuvant radiation therapy can offset the adverse impact of positive margins.
