      The issue covers a number of important topics, including the treatment and surgical management of patients with a wide range of different sarcoma tumors. In addition, other important topics, such as relevant trial updates, immunotherapy in sarcoma, as well as new drug approvals in the last 5 years for sarcoma, are covered. Furthermore, The Cancer Genome Atlas and its impact and implications on the future directions in the care of sarcoma are also discussed in detail.
      I owe Dr Raut and Dr Gronchi a great debt of gratitude for their work in putting together such a fantastic team of sarcoma leaders to contribute to this issue of Surgical Oncology Clinics of North America. These authors have done a masterful job highlighting the important and state-of-the art elements of caring for patients with sarcoma. I know that this issue of Surgical Oncology Clinics of North America will serve trainees and faculty well in familiarizing them with the evolving management of sarcoma. Once again, thank you to Dr Raut, Dr Gronchi, and all the contributing authors.
