Tackling tumors that affect both the sacrum and pelvis brings challenges, particularly when it comes to preserving the connection of the Sacroiliac (SI) joint.
For this case, the usage of two cutting guides certainly ensured a less invasive surgical approach. This dual-guide was designed such that it was able to be used before and after Laminectomy, maintaining the continuity of the surgical process.
💡 What makes this approach stand out?
1️⃣ Preserving Continuity of the Sacro-Iliac Joint: The resection was planned to preserve the structural integrity of the SI joint, a critical aspect in the overall success of the surgical procedure.
2️⃣ Adapting Guides for Vascular and Neural Presence: Recognizing the importance of blood vessels and nerves, the guides were customized to accommodate their presence, minimizing risks and optimizing the surgical process.
🤝 Innovation in surgery is a collective effort. By sharing insights and embracing adaptable techniques, we pave the way for more effective and patient-centric approaches in tumor resection.
