Multidisciplinary surgical planning for en bloc resection of malignant primary cervical spine tumors involving 3D-printed models and neoadjuvant therapies: report of 2 cases

Written by

The resection of primary spinal tumors necessitates a multidisciplinary approach. Not only neurosurgeons but also other clinicals such as medical and radiology specialists have to collaborate to obtain the best prognosis for their patients. Biomedical engineers are playing an increasingly important role thanks to the creation of patient-specific 3D-printed models which help surgeons to understand the features of lesions and their anatomical relationship with adjacent structures. In this article the authors underline the role of 3D-printed patient models and neoadjuvant therapies on two complex clinical cases for which this multidisciplinary management was employed.
