This study is to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of Tokuhashi and Tomita scores that assures 6-month predicting survival regarded as a standard of surgical treatment. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, European PubMed central, and the Cochrane library for papers about the sensitivities and specificities of the Tokuhashi and/or Tomita scores to estimate predicting survival. Studies with cut-off values of ≥9 for Tokuhashi and ≤7 for Tomita scores based on prior studies were enrolled. Sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic odds ratio (DOR), area under the curve (AUC), and the best cut-off value were calculated via meta-analysis and individual participant data analysis. Finally, 22 studies were enrolled in the meta-analysis, and 1095 patients from 8 studies were included in the individual data analysis. In the meta-analysis, the pooled sensitivity/specificity/DOR for 6-month survival were 57.7 %/76.6 %/4.70 for the Tokuhashi score and 81.8 %/47.8 %/4.93 for Tomita score.

What is a spinal tumor?. A spinal tumor is an abnormal growth of cells in the spine. If any cells in the spine grow and multiply abnormally to cause a spinal tumor, this is called a primary tumor. If abnormal cells have spread to the spine from a cancerous tumor in another part of the body, this is called a secondary tumor or a metastasis.. Benign and malignant spinal tumors. Benign spinal tumors are non-cancerous. They are always primary tumors (that is, they start in the spine and they do not spread into and invade the tissue surrounding them in the same way as malignant tumors. Benign tumors can grow to a considerable size, creating pressure on and damaging the tissue surrounding them in the spine. Benign spinal tumors usually occur inside the membrane surrounding the spinal cord and nerves (the dura). Tumors within the dura are called intradural tumors. Benign spinal tumors are not often found in the bones of the spine (the vertebrae). Consequently, they rarely disturb the strength of the ...

Kushchayeva YS1, Kushchayev SV, Wexler JA, Carroll NM, Preul MC, Teytelboym OM, Sonntag VK, Van Nostrand D, Burman KD, Boyle LM. Thyroid. 2014 Oct;24(10):1443-1455. The spine is the most common site of bone metastases due to thyroid cancer, which develop in more than 3% of patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancer. Nearly half of patients with bone metastases from thyroid cancer develop vertebral metastases. Spinal metastases are associated with significantly reduced quality of life due to pain, neurological deficit, and increased mortality. Treatment options for patients with thyroid spinal metastases include radioiodine therapy, pharmacologic therapy, and surgical treatments, with recent advances in radiosurgery and minimally invasive spinal surgery as well. Therapeutic interventions require a multidisciplinary approach and aim to control pain, preserve or improve neurologic function, optimize local tumor control, and improve quality of life. We have proposed a three-tiered approach to ...
Spine cancer is an abnormal growth of cells in or around the spinal cord resulting in a tumor. If the abnormal cells originated from cells in the tissues of the spine, this is a Primary Spine Tumor. Primary tumors in the spine are relatively rare and are either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).. If the abnormal cells originated in another part of the body, as in cancer originating in the lung, breast, colon or skin and were carried to the spine by the blood or other bodily fluid, growing into a tumor, then it is considered a Metastatic Spine Tumor.Both primary and metastatic spine tumors are very serious because they can compress the spinal cord and/or destroy the bone and surrounding tissue in the spine. These tumors cause patients to experience pain, gait and posture problems, and other neurological issues.. ...
Mean age at operation was 60.5 years (standard deviation 12.9 years). Seventeen patients (11.2%) experienced SSI. At the time of last follow up, 117 patients had died. RTS score (p,0.001; hazard ratio 0.82; 95% confidence interval: 0.76-0.87) and ASA grade (p=0.022; hazard ratio 1.40; 95% confidence interval: 1.05-1.87) were significantly associated with survival, with better survival found in patients with higher RTS and lower ASA scores. Infection status was of substantive importance, with better survival in those without SSI (p=0.075). Age was not substantively related to survival (p=0.299). Overall, median survival time from operation was 262 days (95% confidence interval: 190-334 days ...

PROGNOSIS. The prognosis for dogs with vertebral tumors is guarded. Recurrence or regrowth of the tumor causing a repeat of pain and neurologic signs is the most common reason for euthanasia. The overall median survival time of 20 dogs for treated vertebral tumors was 135 days and was significantly improved in dogs with good neurologic function before and after surgery and when radiation therapy was combined with surgery. The median survival times for dogs treated with surgery alone and surgery and radiation therapy were 38 days and 135 days, respectively. Dogs with pain only as a result of their vertebral tumor had a median survival time of 330 days, which was significantly longer than the median survival time of 120 days for dogs with neurologic signs ranging from weakness to paralysis. Following surgery, eight dogs improved neurologically, seven dogs remained the same, and five dogs deteriorated neurologically. Dogs with either postoperative pain and/or weakness (median survival time 135 ...
Metastatic malignant tumors comprise the vast majority of spinal tumors in adults. The most devastating complication of spinal metastatic disease (SMD) is invasion of the spinal canal and compression of the spinal cord or the nerve roots of the cauda equina, resulting in a clinical entity known as cord compression that manifests with progressive loss of motor function and sensation in the legs, as well as bladder and bowel incontinence.. The treatment of spinal metastases is mostly palliative with the goals of improving or maintaining neurologic function, achieving local tumor control, and spinal stability. Most patients with spinal metastatic disease are currently treated effectively with radiation therapy and/or surgery with good results. There are however certain limitations in the current treatment of SMD. Radiation therapy has two important limitations: 1) if the targeted SMD is in close proximity the spinal cord, delivery of high radiation doses is contraindicated as it may cause ...

Radiation treatment is a major risk factor for post-surgery infection. A study by Ghogawala et al (Spine 2001; 26: 818-24) found that for patients who received radiation therapy prior to surgery, the risk of infection was three times higher than for patients who had not received radiation therapy (32% v. 12%). "So when we are dealing with patients who are post radiation, the risk of infection is always a challenge. Therefore, it would be good if we could see a patient before they have radiation therapy. But, often, we do not have that luxury. In many cases by the time the individual has come to us, they have already undergone radiation therapy and have been referred to us because they have developed a neurological deficit," Anderson, who was giving a talk on the role of minimally invasive surgery in spinal metastases at IMAST 2011, said.. He added that the use of minimally invasive surgery has been shown "very definitively" to reduce the risk of infection, and described a retrospective review of ...

Fewer than 10 percent of spine tumors begin in the spine. These tumors, called primary tumors, may be benign or low-grade, malignant growths that are slow growing, or high-grade tumors that grow very aggressively. The vast majority of spine tumors are metastatic. These tumors arise from cancer that begins in another part of the body, such as the lungs, breasts, colon, prostate, kidneys, or thyroid gland. Sarcomas - cancers of the bone, muscle, or connective tissue - can also spread to the spine.
Febrile neutropenia is a life-threatening complication of cytotoxic medications utilized to treat malignancy. The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) defines fever in neutropenic patients as a single oral temperature ,38.3°C (101°F) or temperature ,38°C (100.4 °F) for one hour.4,5 While cytotoxic medications destroy cancerous cells, they may cause bone marrow suppression. While all cell lines can be affected, the reduction in neutrophils is most clinically important. Most chemotherapy regimens result in a neutrophil nadir 7-10 days after treatment.6 Neutropenia is defined as an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) of ,1500 cells/μL, with severe defined as an ANC ,500 cells/μL, or an expected drop to ,500 over 48 hours.5 As the severity and duration of neutropenia increases, the likelihood for the development of bacteremia increases, and with it, the progression to sepsis.7. In addition to bone marrow suppression, cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs may damage the mucosal lining of the ...
Introduction In spinal tumors treatment, the surgical intervention aims toward decompression, either by direct removal of metastatic tissue or indirectly by palliative posterior laminectomy. These operations can be usually performed without any major bleeding problem. After meta-analysis of 18 papers, Chen et al. reported average estimated perioperative blood loss to be 2180 ml.1

Osteochondromas were diagnosed in 27 patients at an average age of 37 years. Twenty-two lesions were found in the mobile spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar) and 5 in the fixed spine (sacrum). Twenty-three cases (88%) were benign tumors (Enneking tumor Stages 1-3), whereas 3 (12%) exhibited malignant changes (Enneking tumor Stages IA-IIB). Sixteen patients (62%) underwent en bloc treatment-that is, wide or marginal resection-and 10 (38%) underwent intralesional resection. Twenty-four operations (92%) followed EA margins. No one received adjuvant therapy. Two patients (8%) experienced recurrences: one in the fixed spine and one in the mobile spine. Both recurrences occurred in latent Stage 1 tumors following en bloc resection. No osteochondroma-related deaths were observed. ...

I am not a doctor but what I know about nervous system function allows me to speculate in the following way: motor function is mediated by both motor cortex in the brain and by the local nerves coming from the spine. Brain pathologies (lesions, degradation, stroke) are usually accompanied by permanent loss of motility and are painful due to interruption of reflex arc in such a way that tesion becomes predominant (spastisity paralysis). Spine lesions causes also more or less permanent damage, but they are usually painless becasue disruption of the neural conductivity at the spine level causes so called weak paralysis, or paresis, and it is exactly what you felt - no pain, no numbness, just the leg does not exist any more for your brain becasue the brain does not feel signals from the spine. But, becasue your paresis was lasting exactly a few seconds or minutes, harldy it could be a myelin lesion, it should be something very reversible, like momentarily physical interruption, like something to ...
