Abstract:

To examine the relationship between tumor location, bone dose, and irradiated bone length on the development of radiation-induced fractures for lower extremity soft tissue sarcoma (LE-STS) patients treated with limb-sparing surgery and radiotherapy (RT).Of 691 LE-STS patients treated from 1989 to 2005, 31 patients developed radiation-indu...More
