Sacral Chordomas


Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, Jean-Paul Wolinsky, discusses a case of a patient presenting with a mass in the sacro-coccygeal region.  Using a CT–guided biopsy, the patient was diagnosed with a sacral chordoma, subsequently resected en bloc. He provides an overview of how predication criteria is used at Johns Hopkins to determine a patient’s outcome based on the nerve root surgical intervention.
