  1. Average tumour size was 12 cm. Average follow-up was 33 months. Pat. Nr. 63, 64 and 198 underwent thoracotomy for lung metastasis resection. Pat. 64 developed local recurrence (treated with limb sparing surgery) 2 months prior to metastasis. Pat. 137 developed local recurrence after 6 months (treated with limb sparing surgery) and metastatic disease 24 months later. Pat. 190 developed local recurrence two months after metastatic disease occurred and palliative treatment had been initiated. Pat. 82, 145 and 239 were resected for regional lymph node metastasis. Pat. 82 and 239 developed progredient disease with further metastasis under palliative treatment.

  3. FU/m: Follow-up/months
  4. Met/m: Manifestation of metastatic disease/months after tumour resection
  5. Met/s: Anatomical localisation of metastasis
  6. status: DOD = died of disease NOD = no evidence of disease
