Abstract

Primary bone tumors of the spine combine the difficulties of diagnosing and treating these rare conditions with the anatomic constraints of the spine, which impose limitations to performing oncologically appropriate biopsy and surgical treatment, radiation therapy, and local adjuvant therapies. Neurologic structures, major vessels, specific regional unresectable structures, and spine stability must be considered when planning diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The widely accepted Enneking staging system can be applied to the spine and can be integrated into a surgical staging system specifically conceived for spine tumors, allowing physicians to catalog these conditions and to plan appropriate surgery.
