Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Soft-tissue sarcoma resections are often highly complex procedures that demand meticulous pre-operative planning in order to maximise the potential for complete excision with clear margins, while preserving vital neurovascular structures and muscle groups. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We present a computer-aided model for surgical planning using Microsoft Powerpoint as a tool for cross referencing magnetic resonance images and normal anatomical diagrams. RESULTS: Using this system the operator follows a sequence of pre-planned steps, minimising intra-operative decision making and unexpected adverse events. Four case studies are discussed. CONCLUSIONS: The visual plan optimises the potential to meet surgical and oncological goals, and serves as an excellent adjunct to the operation note for documentation of the procedure.
