    • Differences in sex distribution, anatomic location and MR imaging appearance of pediatric compared to adult chordomas 

      Sebro, Ronnie; DeLaney, Thomas; Hornicek, Francis; Schwab, Joseph; Choy, Edwin; Nielsen, G. Petur; Rosenthal, Daniel I. (BioMed Central, 2016)
      Background: Chordomas are rare malignancies that primarily affect adults, but also rarely affect pediatric patients. We compared the imaging appearance, demographic and anatomic distributions of adult and pediatric chordomas ...
    • The Discrepancy between Patient and Clinician Reported Function in Extremity Bone Metastases 

      Janssen, Stein J.; van Rein, Eva A. J.; Paulino Pereira, Nuno Rui; Raskin, Kevin A.; Ferrone, Marco L.; Hornicek, Francis J.; Lozano-Calderon, Santiago A.; Schwab, Joseph H. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2016)
      Background:. The Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) scoring system measures function and is commonly used but criticized because it was developed to be completed by the clinician and not by the patient. We therefore ...
    • The Identification of Prognostic Factors and Survival Statistics of Conventional Central Chondrosarcoma 

      Nota, Sjoerd P. F. T.; Braun, Yvonne; Schwab, Joseph H.; van Dijk, C. Niek; Bramer, Jos A. M. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015)
      Introduction:. Chondrosarcomas are malignant bone tumors that are characterized by the production of chondroid tissue. Since radiation therapy and chemotherapy have limited effect on chondrosarcoma, treatment of most ...
    • Intraosseous Synovial Sarcoma of the Proximal Tibia
