Video: Maxillectomy by drsaminasr

Indication: Chondrosarcoma
🏨📚Chondrosarcomas are uncommon malignant tumors characterized by the formation of cartilage but not bone by the tumor cells. They are rarely found in the head and neck region accounting for 5.76% of all the cases of chondrosarcomas.

🏨📚In contrast to osteosarcoma, chondrosarcomas usually occur in adulthood. In the head and neck region, chondrosarcomas occur more commonly in the maxilla, nasal cavity, nasal septum, and mandible.

💊🏨The prognosis for chondrosarcomas depends on the size, location, grade, and surgical respectability of the tumor. Complete resection is the most effective treatment for conventional chondrosarcoma.
