Special clinical scenarios in RPS: Involvement of great vessels and pancreas and penetration across natural foramina

Published:October 21, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejso.2022.10.016

      Abstract

      The primary treatment for retroperitoneal sarcomas is surgery. This requires a carefully planned, typically multivisceral, resection. A few complex scenarios that may arise include vascular involvement, pancreatic involvement, or herniation of the tumor into another compartment outside of the retroperitoneum. These scenarios must be anticipated before surgery to optimize preoperative preparation, minimize postoperative morbidity and mortality, and improve oncologic outcomes. Our aim is to highlight these clinically challenging anatomic presentations that can be encountered in patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas.
