Complete surgical resection of soft-tissue sarcomas (STSs) frequently requires complex multivisceral resections, which is the most important factor related to overall survival and local recurrence. Major vascular involvement is not rare in patients with primary retroperitoneal STSs. We present a 54-year-old woman with a retroperitoneal STS encasing the infrarenal abdominal aorta. The patient underwent complete oncological resection with vascular reconstruction using a bi-iliac vascular graft. Major blood vessel involvement is not a contraindication for STS surgery with a curative intent.
