Isolated limb perfusion with tumor necrosis factor and melphalan for limb salvage in 186 patients with locally advanced soft tissue extremity sarcomas. The cumulative multicenter European experience.
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to achieve limb salvage in patients with locally advanced soft tissue sarcomas that can only be treated by amputation or functionally mutilating surgery by performing an isolated limb perfusion (ILP) with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) + melphalan (M) as induction biochemotherapy to obtain local control and make limb-sparing surgery possible. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA To increase the number of limb-sparing resections in the treatment of locally advanced extremity soft tissue sarcoma, preoperative radiation therapy or chemotherapy or a combination of the two often are applied. The ILP with cytostatic agents alone is another option but rarely is used because of rather poor results. The efficacy of the application of TNF in ILP markedly has changed this situation. METHODS In 8 cancer centers, 186 patients were treated over a period of almost 4.5 years. There were 107 (57%) primary and 79 (43%) recurrent sarcomas, mostly high grade (110 grade III; 51 grade II; and 25 very large, recurrent, or multiple grade I sarcomas). The composition of this series of patients is unusual: 42 patients (23%) had multifocal primary or multiple recurrent tumors; median tumor size was very large (16 cm); 25 patients (13%) had known systemic metastases at the time of the ILP. Patients underwent a 90-minute ILP at 39 to 40 C with TNF + melphalan. The first 55 patients also received interferon-tau. A delayed marginal resection of the tumor remnant was done 2 to 4 months after ILP. RESULTS A major tumor response was seen in 82% of the patients rendering these large sarcomas resectable in most cases. Clinical response rates were: 33 complete response (CR) (18%), 106 partial response (PR) (57%), 42 no change (NC) (22%), and 5 progressive disease (PD) (3%). Final outcome was defined by clinical and pathologic response: 54 CR (29%), 99 PR (53%), 29 NC (16%), and 4 PD (2%). At a median follow-up of almost 2 years (22 months; range, 6-58 months), limb salvage was achieved in 82%. Regional toxicity was limited and systemic toxicity minimal to moderate, easily managed, with no toxic deaths. CONCLUSIONS In the setting of isolated limb perfusion, TNF is an active anticancer drug in patients. The ILP with TNF + melphalan can be performed safely in many centers and is an effective induction treatment with a high response rate that can achieve limb salvage in patients with locally advanced extremity soft tissue sarcoma.

Limb salvage versus traumatic amputation. A decision based on a seven-part predictive index.
In severe traumatic injuries to the lower extremity, it is often a difficult decision to attempt heroic efforts aimed at limb salvage or to amputate primarily. To answer this question, the authors performed a 5-year review of 70 limbs in 67 patients. Patients were identified as presenting with major lower extremity trauma and an associated arterial injury. Nineteen (27%) of the 70 limbs were amputated. Limb salvage was not related to the presence or absence of shock and order of repair (orthopedic or vascular). No statistical difference was noted between the time of injury to operative repair in either the amputated or limb salvage group. Limb salvage was related to warm ischemia time and the quantitative degree of arterial, nerve, bone, muscle, skin, and venous injury. A limb salvage index (LSI) was formulated based on the degree of injury to these systems. All 51 patients with an LSI score of less than 6 had successful limb salvage (p less than 0.001). All 19 patients with an LSI score of 6 or greater had amputations (p less than 0.001). Although statistics cannot replace clinical judgment, this index can be a valuable objective tool in the evaluation of the patient with a severely traumatized extremity.

Open tibial fractures with associated vascular injuries: prognosis for limb salvage.
Open tibial fractures complicated by limb-threatening vascular injuries present an infrequent but difficult management problem. Twenty-three cases were reviewed with an ultimate amputation rate of 61% (22% primary, 39% delayed). Crush injuries, segmental tibial fractures, and revascularization delays of greater than 6 hours were associated with a bad outcome. Guidelines for primary amputation (crushing injuries, delay in revascularization, segmental tibial fractures) are proposed and implications of limb salvage are reviewed.

Limb Salvage following Laser-Assisted Angioplasty for Critical Limb Ischemia: Results of the LACI Multicenter Trial
Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of laser-assisted angioplasty for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who were poor candidates for surgical revascularization. Methods: A prospective registry at 14 sites in the US and Germany enrolled 145 patients with 155 critically ischemic limbs; the patients were poor candidates for bypass surgery owing to inadequate target vessel or saphenous vein, prohibitive cardiac disease, or significant comorbidities (ASA class 4). Additional comorbid risk factors included diabetes in 66%, hypertension in 83%, previous stroke in 21%, and myocardial infarction in 23%. Endovascular treatment included guidewire traversal and excimer laser angioplasty followed by balloon angioplasty with optional stenting. Results: Occlusions were present in 92% of limbs. A mean of 2.7±1.4 lesions were treated per limb; the total median treatment length was 11 cm (mean 16.2, range 0.2–123). Stents were implanted in 45% of limbs. Procedural success, defined as <50% residual stenosis in all treated lesions, was seen in 86% of limbs. At 6-month follow-up, limb salvage was achieved in 110 (92%) of 119 surviving patients or 118 (93%) 127 limbs. Conclusion: Excimer laser-assisted angioplasty for CLI offers high technical success and limb salvage rates in patients unfit for traditional surgical revascularization.

The Military Extremity Trauma Amputation/Limb Salvage (METALS) study: outcomes of amputation versus limb salvage following major lower-extremity trauma.
BACKGROUND The study was performed to examine the hypothesis that functional outcomes following major lower-extremity trauma sustained in the military would be similar between patients treated with amputation and those who underwent limb salvage. METHODS This is a retrospective cohort study of 324 service members deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq who sustained a lower-limb injury requiring either amputation or limb salvage involving revascularization, bone graft/bone transport, local/free flap coverage, repair of a major nerve injury, or a complete compartment injury/compartment syndrome. The Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment (SMFA) questionnaire was used to measure overall function. Standard instruments were used to measure depression (the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD Checklist-military version), chronic pain (Chronic Pain Grade Scale), and engagement in sports and leisure activities (Paffenbarger Physical Activity Questionnaire). The outcomes of amputation and salvage were compared by using regression analysis with adjustment for age, time until the interview, military rank, upper-limb and bilateral injuries, social support, and intensity of combat experiences. RESULTS Overall response rates were modest (59.2%) and significantly different between those who underwent amputation (64.5%) and those treated with limb salvage (55.4%) (p = 0.02). In all SMFA domains except arm/hand function, the patients scored significantly worse than population norms. Also, 38.3% screened positive for depressive symptoms and 17.9%, for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One-third (34.0%) were not working, on active duty, or in school. After adjustment for covariates, participants with an amputation had better scores in all SMFA domains compared with those whose limbs had been salvaged (p < 0.01). They also had a lower likelihood of PTSD and a higher likelihood of being engaged in vigorous sports. There were no significant differences between the groups with regard to the percentage of patients with depressive symptoms, pain interfering with daily activities (pain interference), or work/school status. CONCLUSIONS Major lower-limb trauma sustained in the military results in significant disability. Service members who undergo amputation appear to have better functional outcomes than those who undergo limb salvage. Caution is needed in interpreting these results as there was a potential for selection bias.

Is Amputation Necessary for Sarcomas? A Seven‐Year Experience with Limb Salvage
The rationale for amputation for local tumor control of skeletal and soft tissue sarcomas was based on results obtained from surgical therapy alone. However, our previous results from a pilot trial of multimodality therapy of preoperative chemotherapy and radiation therapy followed by surgical resection indicated that limb salvage (without amputation) could be accomplished in most patients with little morbidity and low recurrence rate. This report summarizes our experience in a prospective trial from January 1972 to December 1979. A total of 105 consecutive patients with soft tissue sarcomas (65 patients) or bone sarcomas (40 patients) were treated with preoperative intra-arterial adriamycin, 3500 rads of rapid-fraction radiation and radical en bloc resection of primary tumor. Diseased bones were replaced with cadaver allografts (22 patients), metallic endoprostheses (10 patients) autologous bone (2 patients), or no replacement (ilium or fibula—4 patients). Salvage of a viable, neurologically intact, functional extremity was achieved in 98/105 patients (98%); 97% of limb salvage patients were free of local recurrence after a median follow-up period of 28 months. Major complication rate that required amputation was 3/105 patients (2%). Postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy with cyclical adriamycin and high-dose methotrexate was employed for all patients with osteosarcoma and 35 patients with grade III soft tissue sarcomas. The overall disease-free rate is 50% (18/35) for osteosarcomas and 65% (42/65) for soft tissue sarcomas. These results indicate that local tumor control can be achieved in 91% of patients without amputation. Their functional capabilities are excellent with a low complication rate. Since the advent of adriamycin and methotrexate has significantly improved the overall survival for patients with skeletal and soft tissue sarcomas, the quality of this survival has become even more important. Preoperative multimodality therapy is a major advance in this direction and since results of limb salvage procedures appear to be equal or superior to those achieved by amputation we believe these alternatives should be offered to all patients.

Open tibial fractures with severe soft-tissue loss. Limb salvage compared with below-the-knee amputation.
The long-term outcomes and the quality of life were studied in patients who had had an open fracture of the tibial shaft with severe soft-tissue loss. Limb salvage with a free flap was attempted in twenty-seven patients (sixteen of whom had a successful procedure and were examined personally by us), while eighteen patients were managed concurrently with an early below-the-knee amputation. Soft-tissue coverage was successful in all but one patient in whom limb salvage had been attempted. Ultimately, however, five extremities were amputated, with an infection at the site of a non-union being the most common reason for amputation. The patients who had had limb salvage had more complications (p < 0.001), more operative procedures (p < 0.001), and a longer stay in the hospital (p < 0.05) than the patients who had had an early below-the-knee amputation. The long-term functional results for sixteen patients who had had a successful limb-salvage procedure (average duration of follow-up, thirty-five months) were compared with those for eighteen patients who had had a below-the-knee amputation (average duration of follow-up, forty-four months). The patients who had had a successful limb-salvage procedure took significantly more time to achieve full weight-bearing (p < 0.05), were less willing or able to work (p < 0.01), and had higher hospital charges (p < 0.006) than the patients who had been managed with an early below-the-knee amputation. They also had a significant decrease in motion at the ankle and subtalar joint in the injured leg compared with the contralateral leg (p < 0.001). A quality-of-life evaluation was possible for only thirteen of the patients who had had a successful limb-salvage procedure and for sixteen of the patients who had had a below-the-knee amputation. The two groups were similar in terms of their responses, but significantly more patients who had had limb salvage considered themselves severely disabled (p < 0.05). They also had more problems with the performance of occupational and recreational activities (p < 0.05). This study confirmed the reliability of modern microvascular free tissue techniques for the coverage of large soft-tissue defects associated with tibial fractures. It also showed that complications and difficulties in the restoration of osseous union are common and may be directly related to the less satisfactory functional, occupational, recreational, and quality-of-life outcomes that are seen in many patients who have had limb salvage.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

Ability of lower-extremity injury severity scores to predict functional outcome after limb salvage.
BACKGROUND Lower-extremity injury severity scoring systems were developed to assist surgeons in decision-making regarding whether to amputate or perform limb salvage after high-energy trauma to the lower extremity. These scoring systems have been shown to not be good predictors of limb amputation or salvage. This study was performed to evaluate the clinical utility of the five commonly used lower-extremity injury severity scoring systems as predictors of final functional outcome. METHODS We analyzed data from a cohort of patients who participated in a multicenter prospective study of clinical and functional outcomes after high-energy lower-extremity trauma. Injury severity was assessed with use of the Mangled Extremity Severity Score; the Limb Salvage Index; the Predictive Salvage Index; the Nerve Injury, Ischemia, Soft-Tissue Injury, Skeletal Injury, Shock, and Age of Patient Score; and the Hannover Fracture Scale-98. Functional outcomes were measured with use of the physical and psychosocial domains of the Sickness Impact Profile at both six months and two years following hospital discharge. Four hundred and seven subjects for whom the reconstruction regimen was considered successful at six months were included in the analysis. We used partial correlation statistics and multiple linear regression models to quantify the association between injury severity scores and Sickness Impact Profile outcomes with the subjects' ages held constant. RESULTS The mean age of the patients was thirty-six years (interquartile range, twenty-six to forty-four years); 75.2% were male and 24.8% were female. The median Sickness Impact Profile scores were 15.2 and 6.0 points at six and twenty-four months, respectively. The analysis showed that none of the scoring systems were predictive of the Sickness Impact Profile outcomes at six or twenty-four months to any reasonable degree. Likewise, none were predictive of patient recovery between six and twenty-four months postoperatively as measured by a change in the scores in either the physical or the psychosocial domain of the Sickness Impact Profile. CONCLUSIONS Currently available injury severity scores are not predictive of the functional recovery of patients who undergo successful limb reconstruction.

Complex Limb Salvage or Early Amputation for Severe Lower-Limb Injury: A Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
Purpose: Leg threatening injuries present patients and clinicians with a difficult decision: whether to pursue primary amputation or limb salvage? The purpose of our study was to review the literature in an effort to inform this management decision. Methods: We systematically searched and selected observational studies that reported on individuals presenting with leg threatening injuries comparing outcomes of limb salvage versus primary amputation. We searched MEDLINE, CINAHL, and EMBASE. We reported on the following outcomes, and pooled data across trials when possible: length of hospital stay, total rehabilitation time, cost, clinical outcomes, failure rate for limb salvage, function & quality of life, pain, return to work, factors associated with poor outcome, and patient preference. Results: Nine observational studies contributed data to our systematic review. The current evidence suggests that while length of hospital stay is similar for limb salvage and primary amputation, length of rehabilitation and total costs are higher for limb salvage patients. Salvage patients requires greater additional surgery and are significantly more likely to undergo re-hospitalization. Long-term functional outcomes (up to 7 years post injury) are equivalent between limb salvage and primary amputation; both forms of management are associated with high rates of self-reported disability (40%; to 50%;), and functional status continues to worsen over time. Report of pain following limb salvage or primary amputation is similar. Return to work is essentially the same between limb salvage and primary amputation groups, with approximately half of such patients returning to competitive employment at 2 years post injury. Both clinical and psychosocial factors are associated with poorer functional outcomes. At the time of injury patients prefer limb salvage, but the majority of failed salvage patients would opt for early amputation if they could decide again. Conclusion and Significance: Functional outcome among patients who present with leg-threatening injuries are not significantly different, at least up to 7 years, whether they are managed with limb salvage or primary amputation. Research to optimize triage decisions to avoid failed limb salvage as well as on interventions targeting important psychosocial prognostic variables should be considered a priority.

Feasibility of limb salvage and survival in soft tissue sarcomas
One hundred nine consecutive patients with soft tissue sarcomas were treated in the period 1977 through 1983. Of 85 patients with extremity sarcomas, only 3 patients (4%) were managed with amputation, whereas in the previous decade, 40% of such patients were treated with amputation in our institute. The current 5‐year survival rate is 63%; in the previous decade it was 45%. In the current series, for extremity locations, patients with minimum surgical margins of 2 cm or greater and no further local therapy had a 5‐year local recurrence rate of 17%, whereas those with minimum surgical margins of less than 2 cm and who were treated with adjuvant postoperative radiation had a local recurrence rate of 7%. In the previous period, the local recurrence rate was 30% after wide resection and 66.6% after local excision. With a combination of modalities, limb salvage can be practiced currently in the majority of patients with extremity soft tissue sarcomas without any adverse effect on recurrence rates and survival.
