Explanation: I know you already awarded the points, but I would like to point out that "extirpation" is not a very commun term used in the orthopaedic field it is more likely you would hear resection.
I've heard extirpation for example in tumors.
Although radical resection is the best treatment for malignant sacral tumors, total sacrectomy for such tumors has been performed in only a few instances. Total sacral resection requires reconstruction of the pelvic ring plus establishment of a bilateral union between the lumbar spine and iliac bone. This technique is illustrated in two patients harboring large, painful, sacral giant-cell tumors that were unresponsive to prior treatment. These patients were treated with complete en bloc resection of the sacrum and complex iliolumbar reconstruction/stabilization and fusion. www.neurosurgery.org/focus/sept97/3-3-p2.html
Técnicas quirúrgicas adecuadas con resección del sacro a distintas alturas, resección de órganos invadidos y reconstrucción con colgajos miocutáneos permiten prolongar la vida en mejores condiciones y en algunos casos curar estos pacientes.
Trabajé con un ortopedista en la traducción de un libro de ahí mi experiencia en el campo.
