Surgical Management of Sacral Chordomas: Illustrative Cases and Current Management Paradigms. Cure¯us Pendharkar, A. V., Ho, A. L., Sussman, E. S., Desai, A. 2015; 7 (8)


Sacral chordomas represent more than 50% of all sacral tumors. These slow-growing, malignant lesions present insidiously and are often large and intimately involved with sacral neurovascular and pelvic structures.

Here, we describe two cases of sacral chordoma and review current management paradigms.
