OBJECTIVE To determine results of surgery for treatment of soft-tissue sarcomas in dogs and to identify prognostic variables that can be used to predict outcome. DESIGN Retrospective case series. ANIMALS Dogs with soft-tissue sarcomas that had surgical treatment only. PROCEDURE Records were examined for clinically relevant data. Histologic samples were reviewed. Follow-up information was obtained by physical examination or telephone conversations with referring veterinarians or owners… Expand
Canine soft tissue sarcoma managed in first opinion practice: outcome in 350 cases.
TLDR
Veterinarians need to better understand the biologic behavior of a suspected soft tissue sarcoma before treatment to allow surgical margins to be adjusted accordingly. Expand
Outcome of dogs with high-grade soft tissue sarcomas treated with and without adjuvant doxorubicin chemotherapy: 39 cases (1996-2004).
TLDR
Adjuvant doxorubicin-based chemotherapy did not benefit this population of dogs with high-grade (grade 3) soft tissue sarcomas and outcome for visceral HGSTSs was similar to that of nonvisceral HGSTs in these cases. Expand
Liposarcomas in dogs: 56 cases (1989-2000).
TLDR
Results suggest that in dogs, liposarcomas are locally invasive neoplasms that rarely metastasize and occur primarily in appendicular or axial locations and that wide excision is preferred to marginal excision when feasible. Expand
Outcome following surgical removal of nonvisceral soft tissue sarcomas in cats: 42 cases (1992-2000).
TLDR
Tumor size and type are significantly associated with survival time in cats with nonvisceral soft tissue tumors in a retrospective study of cats treated with surgery alone. Expand
A Retrospective Study of 87 Cases of Canine Soft Tissue Sarcomas, 1986-2001
TLDR
Using multivariate analysis, the only prognostic variable for development of local recurrence was total radiation dose, and in the metastasis model, prior tumor surgery, hyperthermia treatment, and non-intact state. Expand
Use of histologic margin evaluation to predict recurrence of cutaneous malignant tumors in dogs and cats after surgical excision.
TLDR
Histologic assessment of margin status was useful for predicting local recurrence of cutaneous malignant tumors in dogs and cats treated by means of excision alone, and careful postsurgical management is recommended for both. Expand
Evaluation of primary re-excision after recent inadequate resection of soft tissue sarcomas in dogs: 41 cases (1999-2004).
TLDR
After incomplete resections of soft tissue sarcomas, resection of local tissue should be performed, even if excisable tissue margins appear narrow, because a long-term favorable prognosis is achievable without radiation therapy or amputation. Expand
Radiation treatment for incompletely resected soft-tissue sarcomas in dogs.
TLDR
An excellent long-term survival rate may be achieved by treating soft-tissue sarcomas in dogs with resection followed by radiation, and amputation is not necessary for long- term control of soft-Tissue Sarcoma in limbs. Expand
Marginal excision of low-grade spindle cell sarcoma of canine extremities: 35 dogs (1996-2006).
TLDR
Marginal surgical excision without adjuvant treatment of low-grade soft tissue spindle cell sarcoma of the extremities results in a low local recurrence rate and disease-free interval of dogs treated by marginal excision. Expand
Marginal Excision of Low-Grade Spindle Cell Sarcoma of Canine Extremities: 35 Dogs (1996–2006)
TLDR
Marginal surgical excision without adjuvant treatment of low-grade soft tissue spindle cell sarcoma of the extremities results in a low local recurrence rate. Expand
