Sarcomas are a rare group of cancers that affect any age group and can develop in the connective tissue in any part of the body such as nerves, fat, muscles, blood vessels, fibrous tissue, bones, tendons, deep skin tissues, and cartilage. Though there are different types of this condition they usually can be divided into two parts: soft tissue and bone sarcomas (commonly known as bone tumors).
SURGICAL TREATMENT FOR SARCOMAS
Surgical removal of the tumor and neighboring healthy tissue remains one of the most effective treatments for soft tissue sarcomas. At times, however, the only possible treatment is the removal of all or part of a limb where the sarcomas are developing in.

Ewing’s sarcoma is a highly malignant neoplasm that primarily affects children and adolescents. About 95% of these sarcomas occur between 5-25 years old, it is frequent in the male sex and very rare in the black race.
Possible treatment of this type of lesions could include the following:
- Surgery and radiotherapy
- Radiotherapy and chemotherapy
- Chemotherapy, to resume the association of surgery with chemotherapy and eventually with radiotherapy. The latter has been put in the background due to the risk of developing osteosarcomas in the radiated areas.
It has been established that once the diagnosis has been confirmed, the treatment must be multimodal and interdisciplinary. This is done after confirming the stage of the neoplasia and must include in the onco-surgical treatment, cosmetic and reconstructive aspects that facilitate the beginning of the Rehabilitation and palliative treatment.
