Primary Bone Tumour Indication and Planning of En Bloc Resection
Challenging diagnosis, complex decision making, technically demanding operative intervention and major risks for morbidity and mortality puts management of spinal primary tumour at the highest level of surgical complexity. The aim of en-bloc resection is to remove the tumor while minimizing the risk of local recurrence and provide a chance for cure. This chapter aims to illustrate patient selection, workup and surgical planning of the en-bloc resections for primary spinal tumours.
