Decompressive stabilizing operations in the treatment of complicated aggressive hemangiomas of transitional spine.
The aim: to study the efficiency of surgical treatment of complicated aggressive hemangiomas in transitional spine. Material and Methods. Decompressive stabilizing operations were made to 26 patients aged 35-52 years with hemangiomas of vertebral bodies. Individual surgical features varied due to the character and level of the injury. Results. In the experimental patients' group in admission there was neurological deficit of compressional origin associated with the critical values of luminal narrowing due to the epidural component of the neoformation. Stable antalgic effect and decrease in neurological deficit were seen postsurgically. Conclusion. While choosing the surgical option of decompressive stabilizing treatment a surgeon should take into account roentgenomorphometric features of the injured vertebrae. Adequately planned intervention fulfilled with the account of the injury character allows obtaining favorable outcomes as well as LQ improvement, neurological deficit decrease and the elimination of pain syndrome.
