Abstract

Spinal ependymomas are predominantly slow-growing lesions constituting approximately 30–88% of primary spinal intramedullary tumors. They usually present as circumscribed lesions, with regular margins and a clear surgical plane. Gross-total resection is often feasible and potentially curative but neurosurgeons should keep in mind that the ultimate goal of surgery is the preservation of spinal cord function. We present the surgical technique to safely resect an intramedullary ependymoma using a posterior median sulcus approach. A brief description of current management of this pathology is also presented.
