Introduction: There is limited data available regarding the role of surgery in the treatment of retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS) recurrences. We herein report the short- and mid-term outcomes of patients who underwent surgical treatment of RPS recurrences at two Italian centers over a 15-years' experience. Materials and methods: From January 2005 to January 2020, 33 patients underwent surgical treatment of isolated locally recurrent RPS (LR group), locally recurrent RPS associated with the presence of distant recurrence (LR + DM group), and distant-only recurrent RPS (DM group). Only procedures performed to obtain a macroscopically radical treatment with curative intent were included. Data regarding pre-, intra-, post-operative course, and follow-up, collected in an Institutional database, were retrospectively analyzed, and compared. Results: LR-group was composed of 15 patients, LR + DM group of 9 patients, and DM group of 9 patients. During the follow-up, 78.5% of the LR group, 77.8% of the DM group and 100% of the LR + DM group (p = 0.244) experienced a second recurrence. 7/11 (63.6%) patients in the LR group, 2/7 (28.5%) patients in the DM-group, and 0/9 (0.0%) patients in the LR + DM group underwent to almost one further local treatments of their recurrences (p = 0.010). No differences in the mean disease-free survival (p = 0.127), overall survival (OS) (p = 0.165) was reported among the three groups. Repeated surgery was an independent factor affecting survival in multivariate analysis (p = 0.01). Conclusions: A surgical treatment of RPS recurrences should always be taken into consideration, also in metastatic patients and/or in those who have already undergone surgery for previous RPS recurrence, because this approach may offer survival benefits.

Abstract

Introduction: There is limited data available regarding the role of surgery in the treatment of retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS) recurrences. We herein report the short- and mid-term outcomes of patients who underwent surgical treatment of RPS recurrences at two Italian centers over a 15-years' experience. Materials and methods: From January 2005 to January 2020, 33 patients underwent surgical treatment of isolated locally recurrent RPS (LR group), locally recurrent RPS associated with the presence of distant recurrence (LR + DM group), and distant-only recurrent RPS (DM group). Only procedures performed to obtain a macroscopically radical treatment with curative intent were included. Data regarding pre-, intra-, post-operative course, and follow-up, collected in an Institutional database, were retrospectively analyzed, and compared. Results: LR-group was composed of 15 patients, LR + DM group of 9 patients, and DM group of 9 patients. During the follow-up, 78.5% of the LR group, 77.8% of the DM group and 100% of the LR + DM group (p = 0.244) experienced a second recurrence. 7/11 (63.6%) patients in the LR group, 2/7 (28.5%) patients in the DM-group, and 0/9 (0.0%) patients in the LR + DM group underwent to almost one further local treatments of their recurrences (p = 0.010). No differences in the mean disease-free survival (p = 0.127), overall survival (OS) (p = 0.165) was reported among the three groups. Repeated surgery was an independent factor affecting survival in multivariate analysis (p = 0.01). Conclusions: A surgical treatment of RPS recurrences should always be taken into consideration, also in metastatic patients and/or in those who have already undergone surgery for previous RPS recurrence, because this approach may offer survival benefits.
