Primary tumors of the lumbar spine: Surgical treatment
Primary tumors of the lumbar spine are very rare and can be treated by an oncologically appropriate surgery if properly diagnosed and staged. Surgical treatment is greatly conditioned by generally unresectable structures that severely limit the performance of a biopsy and the oncologically most appropriate surgery. However, there are surgical techniques allowing en bloc resection of the tumor in many cases. The knowledge of the characteristics of each tumor and its natural history should guide the choice of the best treatment.
