Metastatic sacral tumors

Neurosurg Clin N Am. 2004 Oct;15(4):453-7. doi: 10.1016/


Therapeutic approaches are still a matter of debate. Given the complexity of the sacral anatomy and the vicinity of major neural structures and vital organs, advantages of radical resection for local disease control must be weighed against the anticipated treatment morbidities and complications. It becomes imperative to establish a multidisciplinary team approach to provide the best environment for establishing individualized management plans.
