Complications from pre-operative radiation of soft tissue sarcoma can be predicted by transcutaneous oximetry to allow for interventions, according to research presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.
Researchers studied 10 patients with lower extremity sarcoma and attempted to predict which patients exposed to radiation would experience complications during healing based on cutaneous oxygen levels present in the patients before they underwent surgical treatment.
