Abstract 2829


We previously reported on the real world treatment and outcomes of 423 angiosarcoma pts in Asia. In this current report, we focus on the 173 pts with V-AS and evaluate the treatment patterns and prognostic factors associated with this disease subset.


This is a retrospective chart review of V-AS pts seen at 8 Asian academic study sites. Survival analysis is measured from date of presentation to the study site.


Median study follow-up was 8.7 mths. Median age 52 yrs; 86% of pts presented with primary disease to study site. 42% (n = 73) had localized disease and 56% (n = 97) had locally advanced/unresectable or metastatic disease; disease status was unknown for 3 pts. Distribution of primary site as follows, liver (n = 38, 22%), cardiovascular system (n = 30, 17%), breast (n = 25, 14%), spleen (n = 18, 10%) and others (n = 62, 36%) from a myriad of organ systems each representing  3 lines of treatment respectively. The most common first line chemotherapy used was paclitaxel (53%) followed by liposomal doxorubicin (18%). Median OS was 11.9 mths in the overall V-AS cohort, with median OS 29.2 mths and 6.3 mths in the localized and advanced/unresectable cohort respectively. In the univariate analysis of pts with unresectable/metastatic disease, only ECOG was associated with OS.


This study highlights the heterogeneity and treatment challenges of visceral angiosarcoma. Overall prognosis is poor, in particular in pts with advanced/unresectable disease.
