Title: Radiotherapy for Management of Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcomas: Why, When, and Where?

Abstract

This critical review will focus on published data on the indications for radiotherapy in patients with extremity soft tissue sarcomas and its role in local control, survival, and treatment complications. The differences between pre- and postoperative radiotherapy will be discussed and consensus recommendations on target volume delineation proposed.
