Abstract

CORTEZ, PAULO ROGÉRIO. SPINAL METASTASIS: DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT AND PROGNOSIS - INTEGRATIVE REVIEW FROM 2012 TO 2017. Coluna/Columna [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp.58-66.  Epub Mar 16, 2020. ISSN 2177-014X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1808-185120201901192641.

Care of the patient with spinal metastasis is challenging. The topic of this article is the treatment and prognosis of spinal metastases, aiming to enumerate and analyze literature that addresses this treatment and prognosis. The methodology used was an integrative review in the Virtual Health Library. Nineteen articles were identified demonstrating that there is research and scientific production in this area. The thematic units and their categories are: treatment decision - prognostic scales or clinical neurological evaluation; types of treatment - minimally invasive and/or traditional; and effectiveness of prognostic scales higher or lower probability of success, which provide insight into the different possibilities of patient evaluation and their applicability in practice. When making the diagnosis, planning the treatment, and establishing a prognosis, the professional must be in sync with current precepts and act based on the objective and subjective characteristics of the patients, such as beliefs and values, which although immeasurable, influence the survival and the effectiveness of treatment. Level of evidence I; Integrative Review.

Keywords : Neoplasm Metastasis; Spine; Therapeutics; Prognosis.
