Eight cases of solitary spinal metastasis with neurological deficit in thoracolumbar spine in which total en bloc spondylectomy (TS) was performed by bisecting the affected vertebra through both pedicles using fine thread wire saws were reviewed. Patient age ranged from 40 to 78 (mean, 62) years. Primary lesions were in the lung (2), kidney (2), thyroid (3) and prostate (1). TS was performed through a posterior approach in 5 cases (T6-7, T12, L2, L2 and L2-3) and through a one-stage anterior and posterior combined approach in the others (L2, L3 and L4). The spine was reconstructed with a ceramic vertebral prosthesis and a pedicle screw fixation system in 5 cases, and with augmented anterior spinal instruments in 3 cases. There were neither surgical complications nor surgical mortality. All patients became ambulatory and pain-free after surgery. Histologically, a marginal surgical margin was achieved in only one case. The other 7 cases had intralesional margin at the osteotomized pedicles. Four patients died from causes unrelated to local recurrence 4 to 44 (mean, 19) months after surgery. Effectiveness of surgery was maintained until death in all 4 of these patients. Asymptomatic local recurrence occurred in 2 patients with renal cancer at 10 and 33 months after surgery. These preliminary results suggest that TS for solitary spinal metastasis can achieve good control of local recurrence without major complications and is clinically acceptable surgery.
