Overview

Soft tissue sarcoma is an uncommon disease with a historically ominous prognosis, but there has been a great deal of progress in the last two decades in the understanding of these diseases, and accurate prognostic and therapeutic information is now available that removes much of the mystique.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD, MBA (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This is a comprehensive resource on soft tissue sarcomas that draws heavily on the extensive Memorial Sloan Kettering experience with these tumors. The book takes the logical progression from history and evolution of treatment, through incidence, staging, and into management. It differs from other sources in the inclusion of examples of even the rarest types of sarcomas and is lavishly illustrated with photographs and radiographs which bring particular points to life.
Purpose: The authors state that the purpose is to provide a resource based upon a prospective database established at Memorial in 1982, and to describe new information in diagnosis, prognostic factors, and management of these rare neoplasms. Although these are rare tumors (7,000-8,000 cases per year in the U.S.), most clinicians will encounter an occasional case in a busy practice. A resource such as this is thus important and appreciated. The book admirably fulfills the authors' objectives.
Audience: The book appears to be written as a resource for both practitioners and trainees. Although it will be useful primarily to surgeons, surgical oncologists, and medical and radiation oncologists, it will also be of interest as a reference for physicians and trainees in other specialties. The authors are highly credible, being among the leading authorities in this area.
Features: The structure of the book parallels the conventional steps in which neoplasms are discussed. Thus, individual chapters take the reader from the historical genesis of current thinking about these tumors, through etiology, pathologic classification, clinical features, staging, and so on through the management and finally treatment of recurrent disease. A final chapter on future directions rounds the book out. Throughout, the book is lavishly illustrated with color photographs of tumors showing diagnostic, operative, radiographic and pathologic features. The Memorial Sloan Kettering experience with particular tumors is given.
Assessment: This book provides a unique resource. It is comprehensive but compact. The writing is lucid and comprehensible. It is a welcome alternative to the larger, more specialty-oriented book in the field.
