PURPOSE Patients with pulmonary metastases (PM) from soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) have historically been treated with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Since 2001, we have treated PM with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). We postulated that SBRT for PM from STS would yield excellent local control (LC) and overall survival (OS). METHODS AND MATERIALS Fifty-two patients with PM from STS, diagnosed between 1990 and 2006 at the University of Rochester, were retrospectively reviewed. Most… CONTINUE READING
