Hemipelvectomy for liposarcoma: An unusual case and course

Alexander A. Deutsch, Avraham Bachar, Raphael Reiss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A patient with liposarcoma of the upper thigh and pelvis treated by hemipelvectomy is described. Preoperative treatment with radiotherapy and chemotherapy induced regression and necrosis of the growth. The treatment of this tumour is discussed as well as the possibility that the pre-operative therapy converted an inoperable tumour into an operable one.
