Abstract

The authors describe the surgical technique of en bloc resection of musculoskeletal neoplasms that originate and invade the posterior arch of the thoracolumbar spine. Surgery is indicated for the treatment of aggressive benign tumors (Enneking stage 3) and malignant tumors. For surgical margins to be adequate, both pedicles must be free of the tumor.
