Markus Albertsmeier, MD, surgeon, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, discusses radiotherapy improving the local control for patients with sarcoma.

Radiotherapy is indeed able to improve the local control of sarcoma in both the retroperitoneum, which is a frequent location, and in extremities and other locations, so it is effective in all those locations in improving local control, explains Albertsmeier.

There are some hints that, in retroperitoneum, the overall survival might improve while it is not seen—at least with the available evidence for extremity sarcoma.
