The foregoing suggestions may be summarised in the following recommendations for the treatment of osteogenic sarcoma. 1. Deep x-ray therapy in high dosage, followed by local resection, should be given serious trial especially: 1) in the upper limb; 2) in the group with atypical clinical or radiographic signs, or histology resembling that of inflammatory lesions; 3) with Grade I histology; and 4) in the young. 2. Deep x-ray therapy followed at once by amputation should be used for osteogenic… Expand

Abstract An analysis is made of the surgical specimens of 18 patients with hystologicafly-proven osteosarcoma who were treated with radiation as the first treatment, and submitted 6 months later toExpand
Primary malignant tumors of bone. Evaluation of current diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
The author's experience in the diagnosis and treatment of primary malignant bone tumors is reviewed, together with the experience of the staff at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute, to determine whether progress has been made in treating bone sarcoma. Expand
The therapy of osteogenic sarcoma: Current status and thoughts for the future
TLDR
A protocol design to quickly and efficiently determine effective therapy forsteogenic sarcoma could include pretherapeutic stratification, controlled trials of drugs or immune adjuvants with reevaluation at specific intervals of clinical significance. Expand
Osteosarcoma of the jaws. Analysis of 56 cases
TLDR
Fifty‐six cases of osteosarcoma of the maxilla or mandible are analyzed for clinical, roentgenographic and histologic character, therapy and prognosis; prognosis does appear to vary depending upon the specific site of origin within the bones. Expand
Radiation in bone sarcomas. A re‐evaluation in the era of intensive systemic chemotherapy
TLDR
The role of radiation in osteogenic sarcoma is limited to patients with inoperable lesions and metastases, and time‐dose and volume parameters in treating these patients are reconsidered. Expand

The Grading of Osteogenic Sarcoma
TLDR
The starting point of this present analysis was the observation that irrespective of the mode of treatment applied, the overall five year survival rates in most published dissections of groups of cases of osteogenic sarcomata were approxi-nmately of a similar order. Expand
AN ANALYSIS OF FIFTY-NINE CASES OF OSTEOGENIC SARCOMA WITH SURVIVAL FOR FIVE YEARS OR MORE
TLDR
It is found that five years is not a sufficiently long period upon which to base end results in this disease, and one may conclude that, if a patient with osteogenic sarcoma survives for five years, his chances of escaping further evidences of this disease are approximately twelve to one. Expand
