Conference paper


The classical method for treating osteogenic sarcoma had been amputation followed by chemotherapy for about 1 year. Recently, preoperative chemotherapy has been tried in many cancer centers [1–3], with the resultant benefits of controlling micrometastasis, permitting the analysis of the response of the tumor to chemotherapy, and providing a better chance to save the endangered limb by reducing and consolidating the tumor volume [4]. Intra-arterial preoperative chemotherapy has been shown to control local lesions very effectively [3].
