Our sarcoma local recurrence nomogram is a tool designed to predict the likelihood of soft tissue sarcoma returning at the site of initial surgery after the tumor is removed through limb-sparing surgery if the patient does NOT receive radiation. The probability of local recurrence is calculated for both three years and five years after surgery.
Results produced by this tool are based on data from patients treated at MSK, a large research institution with surgeons who perform a high volume of soft tissue sarcoma procedures. All results must be understood in the context of each patient’s specific treatment plan. Patients and caregivers using this tool should discuss the result with the patient’s physician.
