Patients with high-grade scapula and peri-scapular sarcomas may now be treated with either an extra-articular scapula resection (including the lateral clavicle and proximal humerus), termed a Tikhoff-Linberg resection or an intra-articular total scapulectomy (4,5).
These procedures are performed either through an intra-articular approach; total scapulectomy, or an extra-articular interscapulo-thoracic resection termed a Tikhoff-Linberg procedure, the latter involving excision of portions of the clavicle and proximal humerus in addition to the scapula (4,5).
In comparison, total scapulectomy has advantages in function, cosmesis and emotional acceptance (10).
