51st Annual Musculoskeletal Tumor Meeting of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) is organized by Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) and will be held during Jul 12 - 13, 2018 at Granship, Shizuoka, Japan.
Regarding the treatment of localized bone / soft tissue sarcoma, the preservation of the limbs by the safety margin which various seniors had established established, and it became possible to guarantee the good local control rate and life prognosis. With the practical application of adjuvant therapy and image assisted surgery, function-preserving surgery has also made rapid progress. However, when talking about reducing the margins, it is necessary to clarify the image findings that are the basis of safety. Where is the outer edge of the tumor, where there is a possibility of tumor cell infiltration? How far should I look at the "reaction layer"? At this academic meeting, we are hoping that a number of topics will be gathered that compare the preoperative image, the pathological findings and the margins of the margins, and discussions will be made for appropriate reduction of the margin.
As "advanced sarcoma", we plan to discuss difficult-to-treat cases occurring in the upper limb girdle and pelvis, and cases of recurrence and metastasis inoperable, as problem cases. In the former, we report challenges to ensure appropriate resection margins for surgery and postoperative quality of life (QOL), the latter report local control and challenges for improvement of life prognosis and become a signpost for treatment of difficult cases I expect it. In response to these, now it is essential to undertake multidisciplinary treatments through cooperation of a large number of departments, so we plan to appoint a radiologist and a tumor internal physician as well as an orthopedic surgeon to the panelists. I would like to discuss new treatment strategies including particle beam and molecular targeted drugs after reporting their own treatment experience related to problem cases.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
