Abstract

Crafting effective surveillance strategies for retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcomas is difficult given the scarcity of literature on this rare disease. In this article, we will summarize the most recent literature on natural history and recurrence patterns of RPS compiled from multi-institutional collaborative studies and centers with extended follow-up data, and based on this evidence, propose principles for histology-based post-operative surveillance protocols.
