Figure 4: Choice of approach for oncologic tumor resections of the subaxial spine (excluding sacrum), based on the Weinstein-Boriani-Biagini system. The vertebra is divided in 12 zones and based on the tumor location either an anterior approach (purple), posterior approach (green) are chosen. For each scenario the osteotomy sites are indicated and in cases necessitating combined approach the suggested order is indicated (I, II)
