Summary of "Ambulatory status after surgical and nonsurgical treatment for spinal metastasis."

Decisions for operative or nonoperative management remain challenging for patients with spinal metastases, especially when life expectancy and quality of life are not easily predicted. This study evaluated the effects of operative and nonoperative management on maintenance of ambulatory function and survival for patients treated for spinal metastases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A surgical specialty concerned with the treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral and sympathetic nervous system.

A surgical procedure performed on selected pairs of vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and which also allows for osteoplastic enlargement of the SPINAL CANAL.

Surgery performed on an outpatient basis. It may be hospital-based or performed in an office or surgicenter.

Application of electric current to the spine for treatment of a variety of conditions involving innervation from the spinal cord.

A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.
