Abstract

Adjuvant radiotherapy constitutes an important component of the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas. Extremity soft tissue sarcomas constitute a large proportion of this rare mesenchymal tumor. Questions regarding timing, techniques and toxicity come into play about optimizing adjuvant radiotherapy. This article will discuss recent trends and outcomes of perioperative, that is, preoperative and postoperative, irradiation.
