Title: Survival nomogram for osteosarcoma patients: SEER data retrospective analysis with external validation


Our study aimed to develop a nomogram based on the clinicopathological factors affecting the prognosis of osteosarcoma patients to help clinicians predict the overall survival of osteosarcoma patients. A total of 1362 patients diagnosed with osteosarcoma were enrolled in this study, among which, 1081 cases were enrolled from the SEER database as training group, while 281 patients from two Clinical Medicine Center database were used in validation group. Univariate and multivariate Cox analyses were performed to identify the independent prognostic factors for overall survival. Our results showed that the model displayed good prediction ability, and the calibration plots demonstrated great power both in the training and the validation groups. Therefore, our prediction model could help clinicians evaluate prognoses, identify high-risk individuals, and provide individualized treatment recommendation for patients with osteosarcoma.
