Title: Are Biopsy Tracts a Concern for Seeding and Local Recurrence in Sarcomas?
Issue Date: Feb-2017

Abstract: A biopsy is the final step in the diagnosis of sarcomas. Complete resection of the biopsy tract traditionally has been recommended in musculoskeletal oncology guidelines, as that tract is considered potentially seeded with tumor cells. However, to our knowledge, the frequency and implications of contamination of the biopsy tract-specifically with respect to the likelihood of local recurrence-and the factors that affect cell seeding are not well described.
