ESSO Webinar - Refining the surgical approach to retroperitoneal sarcomas: can we further improve it?

30 June, 2020 - Closed

Venue: Online

This interactive workshop webinar with case based discussions will be presented by Dr Marco Fiore, Prof. Sergio Sandrucci and Dr Yvonne Schrage  on Tuesday 30th June at 18:00 CET.

During this webinar a debate will be developed concerning the Liberal extended resections versus restrictive surgery in retroperitoneal sarcomas. Although this is under debate, more aggressive surgery including en bloc multiorgan resections have shown to improve prognosis of RPS patients in the hands of expert sarcoma surgeons.  However, this approach has to be tailored to each histological subtype, as the patterns of growth and recurrence risks vary significantly among them.

Main topics

  • Surgical anatomy with focus on the boundaries of a wide margin resection of a retroperitoneal mass
  • Modern diagnostics influencing treatment decisions (imaging, pathology and genetics)
  • Main evidences in favour of extended surgery
  • Implementation of quality control of  surgery
  • How multidisciplinarity can affect outcomes

Expected educational outcomes

  • Provide high quality knowledge in differences in surgical approach to retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcoma according to histology.
  • Provide an update in the scientific basis and clinical practice of surgical management of retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcomas care within s multidisciplinary decision-making.

Target particpants

  • Surgical residents in the last two years of specialisation with clinical interest in surgical oncology
  • Surgical oncologists within 5 years of ending specialisation residency
  • Surgical oncologists
  • Medical and radiation oncologists
