Abstract

Introduction: Pediatric tumor reconstruction surgery stands at the intersection of multiple disciplines, demanding a unique blend of surgical expertise, technological innovation, and a thorough understanding of pediatric oncology. With the evolution of surgical techniques, advanced imaging modalities, and the advent of minimally invasive and robotic surgery, the landscape of pediatric tumor reconstruction has seen substantial transformations.
Objective: This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state and future directions in pediatric tumor reconstruction surgery, shedding light on the art and science of this complex discipline, and outlining the necessity of multidisciplinary collaboration for improved patient outcomes.
Methods: A systematic literature search was conducted using PubMed, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar databases with the terms "Pediatric Oncology", "Reconstructive Surgery", "Tumor Surgery", "Minimally Invasive Surgery", "Robotic Surgery", "Surgical Outcomes", and "Quality of Life". The search included articles from 2004-2023.
Results: Findings from the review reveal a trend towards minimally invasive and robotic surgery, offering the potential for less invasive treatment options and better recovery for patients. Advancements in technology have played a significant role, with photodynamic therapy, near-infrared photoimmunotherapy, and fluorescent-guided surgery providing new tools for local and regional cancer treatment.
Conclusions: Pediatric tumor reconstruction surgery continues to evolve with advancements in surgical techniques and the integration of innovative technology. The field presents promising future directions, but further research is needed, particularly concerning new treatments, understanding local relapse, and enhancing postoperative quality of life.
