Description

Symposium Description

The Symposium is going to overview the basic techniques of resection reconstruction and stabilization in the spinal tumor surgery. Faculties with great personal experience will demonstrate the “gold standards” as well as unique solutions in the different spine sections and different tumorous pathologies.

Besides of the standard techniques, possible intra- and postoperative complications will be discussed in details, with special emphasis on the solutions and late consequences. Several case demonstrations by the invited faculty will be part of the program, but the organizers open the door for the participants too, if they have a special case for discussion or consultation (based on a previous correspondence with the chairman of the event).

Two guest speakers are invited to give the state of the art lecture about the radiation oncology and the psychosocial issues of the spine tumor patients.

Target Participants

Orthopaedic, neuro- and spinal surgeons with varying degree of experience who get involved with spinal tumors at any stage of differential diagnosis, diagnosis and complex treatment.

Symposium Objectives

The main goal of this Symposium is to give a general overview of the current gold standards of spine tumor surgery through the processes of decision making, surgical planning, operative  techniques, and perioperative care.
Complications have a special place on the discussion: how to avoid and how to solve them? The symposium will provide an evidence based knowledge in the management of complex pathologies associated with spinal neoplasms.

After the course, participants should be able to:

• Identify the clear indications for surgery in spinal tumors

• Identify goals of treatment in primary tumors and metastatic disease

• Identify optimal surgical margins for en bloc resection in different tumors and different sections of the spine

• Select optimal surgical techniques (approach, resection, replacement and stabilization)

• Recognize intraoperative and postoperative complications and decide about the proper solutions

• Understand the directions in the current research activities of the field
