This book provides a comprehensive overview of the approach to retroperitoneal sarcomas, rare and challenging tumors requiring highly specialized, multidisciplinary management. Based on an updated review of the literature and drawing on the expertise of respected authors, it analyzes key topics – such as pre-operative work-up and staging, multimodal therapy, multi-organ resection, surgical complications and management of local recurrence and advanced disease – as well as several other debated issues. Presenting surgery as the cornerstone in the treatment of this disease, the book serves both as a guide for non-expert physicians wishing to understand the best management of RPS patients, including the need to refer them to specialized centers, and as a state-of-the-art overview for surgeons with interest in sarcoma surgery
