Abstract

Bone tumor surgery is extremely challenging, particularly when tumors are located in tightly confined anatomical areas and abutting critical organs and neurovascular structures. Tumor resection requires good cutting accuracy to ensure safety, to achieve negative margins, and to preserve critical structures when possible. The purpose of this paper was to review the literature on the surgical advances for bone tumor surgery published within the last year. The majority of literature identified focused on computer-assisted surgical approaches. There is increasing evidence that 3D navigation plays an important role in the resection of bone tumors. Reconstruction materials that encourage healing and prevent infections are also in development. Optimal care includes execution of a well-developed pre-operative plan using a multidisciplinary approach led by the orthopaedic oncologist.
