SINGUEPIRE, Alpha; FIGUEREDO ACOSTA, Héctor  y  FONSECA SOSA, Kirenia. Clinical epidemiological characterization of patients operated on spinal cord tumors. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2019, vol.48, n.1, e196.  Epub 01-Mar-2019. ISSN 0138-6557.

Introduction:

Spinal cord tumors are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with oncological conditions and it represents approximately 10% to 15% of all tumors of the central nervous system.

Objective:

To identify clinical and epidemiological aspects of patients operated on spinal cord tumors, from 2008 to 2013.

Methods:

We conducted an observational, descriptive study of a series of cases in 31 patients older than 19 years at the Neurosurgery Service of Saturnino Lora Provincial Teaching Hospital in Santiago de Cuba from January 2008 to December 2013. The subjects had diagnosis of intratracheal tumors.

Results:

In the cases studied (n = 31) age ranged 19 to 76 years. Female patients (54.8%) and benign lesions (64.5%) were the majority. The most frequent localization was dorsal and extradural in the spinal axis.

Conclusions:

The main clinical and epidemiological characteristics were age of more frequent presentation of tumor lesions, that is 60 years of age; symptomatology with variable neurological involvement, spinal pain in all cases, and predominance of benign lesions.
