Appropriate for experienced paediatric neurosurgeons, intraoperative neurophysiologists and fellow trainees, this video is a detailed and technical guide to the total resection of a complex spinal cord lipoma.

There will be an accompanying short chapter and some additional details about the techniques and special equipment needed, together with figures. This short chapter is essential in understanding all the nuances of the video and must be included. The video itself is a fairly detailed step-by-step technical primer showing the resection of a complex dorsal spinal cord lipoma in a child.

Video Transcript

This video is about the technique of Total Resection of Complex Spinal Cord Lipoma. I chose a very large dorsal lipoma because it illustrates most of the important technical points. This is a case actually of a 12-month-old girl with a weak left leg.
