2020 Jan 1st meeting Soft Tissue Sarcoma Multidisciplinary focus on Myxofibrosarcoma (Bologna, Italy)

Myxofibrosarcoma is a soft tissue sarcoma that is common in the elderly. Due to its high invasiveness, high postoperative recurrence rates are a clinical problem. This time, clinicians, pathologists, radiologists, oncologists, and basic researchers gathered at Insititute Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy, for a hot debate to improve the treatment results of Myxofibrosarcoma.
