About this book

Bone and soft tissue sarcomas represent only about 2% of all malignancies; however, their treatment – with the goal of curing the patient while preserving the functionality of the affected body part – can, unlike other malignancies, only be successful with therapy concepts devised by interdisciplinary teams. This volume provides an extensive up-to-date overview of the specific diagnostics and current treatment standards of these rare entities, presenting the various limb-sparing modalities for patients with bone and soft tissue sarcomas with special regard to innovative reconstructive options. The evaluation of quality of life based on validated scores and the individual methods of coping with the illness through creative artistic projects are also acknowledged and integrated in the whole concept.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an extensive, up-to-date overview of the diagnosis and treatment of bone and soft tissue sarcomas, with a special emphasis on limb-sparing reconstructive modalities. … The book is written by authoritative experts in the field and is well suited for residents and practitioners in musculoskeletal orthopedic oncology. In addition, oncologists, vascular surgeons, and radiation therapy practitioners will also find valuable information to help them better understand the multidisciplinary approach to these tumors." (Jose A Morcuende, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2009)
