Summary

Roughly half of patients who have sarcoma surgery with preoperative radiation have wound complications after surgery. This goal of this study is to look at the levels of oxygen in the skin before and after surgery and compare them to the wound outcome. The information gained could lead to a change in surgical practices.

Summary

This is a study comparing two methods of dressing a post operative wound that are currently in practice. One method is a traditional dry gauze dressing. The other method is using a negative pressure dressing that provides gentle suction on the wound.

We will attempt to determine how well the use of post-operative negative pressure dressing reduces wound healing problems in patients who have surgery after radiation for a sarcoma in the thigh or leg.
