Answer

Answer

In intrathoracic synovial sarcomas, including pleural synovial sarcomas, bivariate analysis has shown that patient sex, age, fusion type, tumor site, tumor size, histologic grade, and histologic subtype did not significantly affect survival. [86] The therapy for synovial sarcoma is usually a multimodal approach consisting of surgical excision, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
