Transatlantic Australasian Retroperitoneal Sarcoma Working Group

A collaborative group for Surgical Oncologists and Sarcoma Professionals

About us


The Transatlantic RPS Working Group (TARPSWG) was established in 2013. The primary aim was to evaluate the current evidence on retroperitonal sarcoma critically and to develop a consensus document on the approach to this difficult disease, bringing together high volume sarcoma specialist centres to generate a combined experience of the multidisciplinary management of RPS and to establish consensus regarding various aspects of the approach to this family of diseases.  From an original 8 institutions, membership has now expanded across Europe, North America, Central America, Australia and Asia to 58 institutions and consensus documents have been published concerning the management of primary, locally recurrent and metastatic RPS.
