Abstract

After a brief foreword on the indication of open surgery in the treatment of neoplastic pain those procedures are detailed which are more effective and widely used: Posterior Rhizotomy, Cordotomy, Mediolongitudinal Mielotomy and Bulbar trigeminal tractotomy. Of each procedure main technical features, indications and complications are detailed. It is concluded that these techniques are still very useful in management of severe cancer pain.
