GOALS OF STUDY
A multidisciplinary meeting (RCP) dedicated to the treatment of sarcoma was established in Franche-Comte in 2010. The goals of the study are: (a) To evaluate the treatment of sarcomas by confrontation with the existing literature; (b) To evaluate the influence of the multidisciplinary meeting on the management of sarcomas by hospitals at the regional level.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
This is a retrospective single center study from 2010 to 2015 on patients with sarcoma and peripheral soft tissue drawn from a Netsarc database (National Network of sarcomas) and communicating cancer record. A database Cleanweb especially dedicated is created.
Forty-seven patients were included: ten sarcomas at the upper member 26 to the lower limbs, 11 on the trunk. Forty patients were operated on: ten out of the university hospital, 28 at the university hospital and two in a coordinating center. Ninety percent of patients treated at the university hospital were in accordance with the recommandations. None of the patients operated out of the university hospital benefited from medical care in accordance to the recommendations. There is an increase in the number of files sent by the hospitals out of the university hospital discussed in multidisciplinary meeting, before treatment.
The creation of a dedicated multidisciplinary meeting sarcoma improves the medical management of these tumors and decreases inappropriate medical managements thanks to a better education of the regional physicians.
