Executive Summary


Evidence-based recommendations


Patients with soft tissue sarcoma requiring radiotherapy to be managed through a specialised sarcoma centre to reduce local recurrence and rate of major wound complication. 


Patients with suspected sarcoma to be referred to a specialised sarcoma centre for surgical management to reduce the risk of local recurrence, surgical complication, and to improve limb salvage and survival.


Delays in surgery (alone or with postoperative radiation therapy) for localised pelvic Ewing sarcoma beyond the recommended timepoint by treatment protocol should be avoided.
