Abstract

Soft tissue sarcomas are the most frequent sarcomas; the annual incidence for 2007 in the United States is estimated at about 9220 cases, with an overall mortality rate of approximately 3560 cases per year. Important updates for the 2007 version of the guidelines include the addition of epirubicin (single agent) and the combination of epirubicin, ifosfamide, and mesna as generally accepted systemic therapy. Imatinib was added as an option for desmoid tumors.
