In a similar manner to which patients with degenerative spinal disorders have benefited from advances in minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, patients with spine tumors may benefit from the option of less invasive techniques for tumor ablation, resection, reconstruction, and stabilization. Percutaneous bone cement augmentation, radiosurgery, and microendoscopic approaches for the treatment of spine tumors have allowed for improved clinical outcomes while limiting procedure-related… CONTINUE READING
