Background: Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. Mean time to get a SS diagnosis from the onset of symptoms is 10 years, furthermore, SS is associated with late metastasis.

The aim of this study was to investigate the oncologic results in SS treatment and to identify the risk factors for local and systemic control of the disease. Methods: From 1994 to 2018, 211 patients affected by SS were treated in 3 Referral Centres of Orthopaedic Oncology.

Abstract

Background: Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. Mean time to get a SS diagnosis from the onset of symptoms is 10 years, furthermore, SS is associated with late metastasis. Surgery is the main treatment option, whose quality deeply affects SS outcomes, and it can be associated to preoperative or post-operative radiotherapy. Chemotherapy is considered very effective in Children, while in adults its efficacy is still under debate. The aim of this study was to investigate the oncologic results in SS treatment and to identify the risk factors for local and systemic control of the disease. Methods: From 1994 to 2018, 211 patients affected by SS were treated in 3 Referral Centres of Orthopaedic Oncology. One hundred seventy-seven patients were included in the study, the median follow-up length was 96 months (5-374). Results: Overall Survival on the Kaplan Meier Analyses was 80%, 70% and 56% at 5, 10 and 20 years. In multivariate analyses, OS correlated with tumour size and negative surgical margins. Chemotherapy use wasn't associated with better survival although patients who underwent CT had bigger and more aggressive tumours. Conclusions: Our findings suggests that surgery with negative margins is the most important factor in Synovial Sarcoma. Adjuvant treatments as chemotherapy and radiation therapy didn't change the disease's course.
