Extract

Resection of sacral tumors is one of the most difficult operations in orthopaedic oncology because complex anatomy and important internal organs in the pelvic area make it difficult to achieve wide surgical margins1. Wide resection of sacral tumors may lead to serious functional impairments due to injury to important internal organs and/or the lumbosacral nerve roots or through the disruption of load-bearing through the sacroiliac joint.
