Background: As a diagnosis of exclusion, Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma (UPS) has unclear clinical characteristics. The objective of this retrospective cohort study is to investigate which clinical and prognostic factors of primary lower-extremity UPS will determine failure. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 55 primary lower-extremity UPS cases treated at Stanford between 1998 and 2015. Overall Survival (OS) and Disease-Free Survival (DFS) curves were calculated. Univariate Fisher’s… 
Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of the extremity and trunk: a retrospective cohort study of 166 cases in a large institution
TLDR
The existing study reveals that the UPS in trunk, tumor size ≥5 cm and R1/R2 resection margin are the prognostic markers of poor survival rate, which was correlated with LRFS, DMFS, and OS.
Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma of the Extremity and Trunk: A Retrospective Cohort Study of 166 Cases in a Large Institution
TLDR
R0 resection margin was an only independent favorable prognostic factor, which was correlated with LRFS, DMFS, and OS, and reveals that the UPS in trunk and R1/R2 resectionmargin are the prognostic markers of poor survival rate.
Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma: Long-Term Follow-Up from a Large Institution
TLDR
Primary treatment of UPS should be conducted by experts in large sarcoma center and wide surgical margin provides sufficient control of the disease recurrence.

The Impact of Surgical Margins and Adjuvant Radiotherapy in Patients with Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcomas of the Extremities: A Single-Institutional Analysis of 192 Patients
TLDR
Negative margins and adjuvant radiotherapy were found to be independent prognostic factors in multivariate analysis and could underscore the beneficial prognostic impact of negative margins on LRFS and OS.
Metastatic Pattern of Truncal and Extremity Leiomyosarcoma: Retrospective Analysis of Predictors, Outcomes, and Detection
TLDR
In conclusion, truncal and peripheral extremity LMS is an aggressive tumor with high metastatic potential and mortality, and broad surveillance may be warranted.
Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma with Neoplastic Fever: A Retrospective Study
TLDR
This study retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of patients with UPS to provide a reference for the diagnosis and treatment of UPS with neoplastic fever, which is characterized by intratumoral necrosis and extensive edema of the surrounding soft tissues.
Serum lactate dehydrogenase as a novel prognostic factor for patients with primary undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcomas
TLDR
Preoperative serum LDH is an independent factor for OS in UPS patients, and it correlates with future surgical margin, and Kaplan–Meier curves showed that patients with relatively high-serum LDH had poorer OS compared with those with low-seru LDH.
Margin Assessment in Soft Tissue Sarcomas: Review of the Literature
TLDR
There is a great need for evidence-based standardization concerning the width of resection margins, and the need for a uniform description of the margin status for patients with STS is highlighted.
Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of skin in unusual locations: Report of two cases
TLDR
Two rare cases ofUndifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of the skin with an occurrence in non-ultraviolet exposed locations are presented and the need of wide resection and the identification of the depth of the tumor are discussed.

MFH revisited: outcome after surgical treatment of undifferentiated pleomorphic or not otherwise specified (NOS) sarcomas of the extremities—an analysis of 140 patients
TLDR
Overall survival (OS) and isolated local recurrence (ILR) were determined by Kaplan–Meier analysis, and negative surgical margins, size and grading had a highly significant influence, whereas the site of surgery and adjUvant chemotherapy, adjuvant radiation and tumor depth did not.
Analysis of the Prognostic Significance of Microscopic Margins in 2,084 Localized Primary Adult Soft Tissue Sarcomas
TLDR
Positive microscopic resection margins significantly decrease the local recurrence-free survival rate for other-than-primary fibrosarcoma and retroperitoneal sarcomas, and independently predict distant recurrence free survival rates and disease-specific survival rates for all patient subsets.
Localized extremity soft tissue sarcoma: improved knowledge with unchanged survival over time.
TLDR
Prognosis of patients with extremity STS, stratified for known risk factors, has not improved over the last 20 years, indicating that current therapy has reached the limits of efficacy.
Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcoma in a Series of Patients Treated at a Single Institution: Local Control Directly Impacts Survival
TLDR
The effect on survival was directly mediated by local recurrence to proximal sites invading the abdomen/thorax, and this may indeed be the main way by which quality of surgery directly impacts the final prognosis of ESTS patients.
Surgical treatment and prognosis in patients with high-grade soft tissue malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the extremities
TLDR
The overall prognosis is poor and increased tumor size is associated with shorter metastasis-free interval which significantly decreases survival, and development of MD and age >70 years emerged as independent prognostic factors.

TLDR
Positive surgical margins had a weak adverse prognostic effect, which was more pronounced for those patients escaping an early relapse, which would seem to justify a policy of surgical adequacy in adult soft tissue sarcomas, though clinical decision making in borderline presentations for conservative surgery might be reasonably flexible and shared with the patient.
High-grade soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities: surgical margins influence only local recurrence not overall survival
TLDR
The results of this study confirm the critical role of tumour size on survival and margins on localRecurrence, and stress the need for further investigation concerning the association between margins, local recurrence and survival.
Multifactorial analysis of long-term follow-up (more than 5 years) of primary extremity sarcoma.
TLDR
Based on analyses, 21% of patients with primary extremity sarcoma who survive for 5 years will die of disease within 5 years and patients with positive microscopic margins are at risk for post-5-year disease-specific mortality and therefore require long-term follow-up and consideration for investigational therapy.

TLDR
A nomogram that combines the factors to predict the probability of 12-year sarcoma-specific death using a database of 2,136 prospectively followed adult patients treated at a single institution is developed and internally validated.
