Answer

The Trans-Atlantic Retroperitoneal Sarcoma Working Group was established in 2013 to address challenging management issues encountered when caring for patients with retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcomas (RPS). [9] The working group mainly addresses primary RPS that is non-visceral in origin. Desmoid tumors and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are not addressed by the working group.
