When a patient with cancer develops metastatic lesions to the spine, this is generally considered a palliative stage of the disease, as cure is not considered to be a realistic outcome anymore. Metastatic lesions frequently cause back pain, pathologic fractures and spinal cord compression. Surgery can be carried out to improve survival, relieve pain, restore spinal stability, improve neurological deficits and improve quality of life. The aim of Nuno Paulino Pereira's research is to understand which variables are important in surgical decision-making for patients with spine metastatic disease.
