Microsurgical resection of cavernous haemangioma around the thoracic neuroforamen: a case report

Treatment for haemangioma of the spinal cord often results in extensive bony resection that necessitates fusion and/or instrumentation. We report on a 75-year-old man who presented with neuropathic pain and muscle weakness of both lower limbs, secondary to an epidural haemangioma at T11-T12, extending laterally into the neuroforamen. The tumour was resected within the neuroforamen after a partial laminectomy and limited medial foraminotomy at T11-T12, without disruption of the osseous continuity of the pars interarticularis, avoiding spinal stabilisation surgery
