Radiothérapie des sarcomes des tissus mous des membres : évolution technique et impact sur le bénéfice clinique

Abstract : The standard treatment for extremity soft tissue sarcomas is based on the association of surgery and radiotherapy. This strategy allows local control improvement with the risk of increased toxicity. There is therefore a growing interest to identify those patients who will benefit from radiotherapy and those who will have the same local control with surgery alone. Furthermore, the development of toxicity has been correlated with the extension of the irradiated volume and the volume receiving high doses. Technological development as intensity modulated radiotherapy and image-guided radiotherapy allows limited irradiated volume improving the protection of the organs at risk leading to clinical benefit improvement. Moreover, efforts are being done to improve local control for the patients at high risk of local relapse. In this paper, we discuss all these mentioned aspects.
