By Hans K. Uhthoff MD, FRCS(C) (eds.)

During the previous decade, the analysis of bone and delicate tissue tumors has more suitable significantly. This development has not just been because of stronger therapeutics and diagnostic equipment but additionally as a result of a group technique now universally followed. comparability of effects, attainable this day, have been hampered some time past via loss of a clinically appropriate staging procedure and definitive therapy proto­ cols. The complexity of the healing administration of bone tumors re­ quires a relentless publicity to tumors, hugely expert diagnostic tech­ niques, and really good services. it's for that reason no longer fabulous to profit that small and medium-sized hospitals embarking at the analysis and remedy of bone and gentle tissue tumors are quite often much less good fortune­ ful than greater outfitted significant facilities. This truth has already been well-known by means of such a lot physicians and surgeons who now refer their sufferers to really expert oncologic facilities. however, all of them need to recognize the current state-of-the-art.

For such lesions, a local procedure that removes en bloc a lesion with a margin of normal tissue is a wide excision for an en bloc. Procedure of an extracompartmental lesion that is beyond natural barriers in the transverse plane but by definition cannot be radical in the longitudinal sense is arbitrarily defined as a radical resection when the longitudinal margin is at the same level as the origin or insertion of the adjacent muscles. For example, a lesion in the subsartorial canal abutting the femoral neurovascular bundle that was removed en bloc, including the bundle with a plane of dissection beyond the fascial boundaries of the canal (ie, radical transversely), but with a proximal and distal margin less than the musculo- 19 tendinous junctions of the sartorius would have been widely excised.

15/60 (25%) were performed in treating centers. In 24 patients (40%) the eventual outcome was adversely affected. tial biopsy (Table V). 1% (15/186) for biopsies performed in the treating center. Altered treatment plans varied from having to perform a radical resection instead of a wide or marginal one to amputation in situations where local resection would have been possible. 5%) had unnecessary amputations. 5% of the total series) to permit the conclusion that the prognoses and results were adversely affected by some problem directly associated with the biopsy procedure.

The pathologic diagnosis was chondrosarcoma Grade I. Roentgenograms 14 years later show no significant change in the architecture of the humerus and the patient is asymptomatic. This is an example of a low-grade chondrosarcoma that, despite inadequate treatment, gave a good result. 31 A 17-year old girl noted swelling near her wrist and had some discomfort for six months.
