Scientific rationaleThe webinar introduces the indication of surgery and hadrontherapy as the treatment of chordomas and chondrosarcomas. The therapeutic use of protons and carbons has gained significant interest due to advantageous physical and radiobiologic properties compared to photon-based therapy. By taking advantage of these unique properties, carbon ion radiotherapy (CIRT) may allow dose escalation to tumours while reducing radiation dose to adjacent normal tissues. For these reasons, CIRT has emerged as a promising strategy for the treatment of a variety of malignancies including sacral chordomas that have a relatively poor radiosensitivity and are in critical location. Topics of the webinar will also be the locoregional approach with systemic treatment and the validity of alternative local therapy when surgery or radiotherapy cannot be considered as the appropriate clinical choice.
