Nevertheless, 86% of our patients had a severe paraparesis on admission. That means that our patients were referred for a neuroradiological diagnosis and treatment only if serious deficits were present. Fifty-four per cent showed an improvement in the paraparesis after surgical decompression. In cases with anterior mass lesions a remarkably high proportion (40%) worsened after operation. The same holds true for those malignant tumors with marked vascularity. We feel that if it is found on CT scan or myelography that the lesion is located anterior to the spinal cord, primary radiotherapy should be given.

Klinger © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 1984 ~ ~ 3 months 2 days ~<1 day Our therapeutic approach (2) consisted of a laminectomy and. removal of extradural foreign tissue as far as possible. Depending on the histologic report additional radiotherapy and cytostatic therapy was carried out postoperatively (4). As was to be expected the postoperative results were the better~ the fewer neurologic 'deficits existed preoperatively. As regards the initial pain symptoms we were able to achieve an improvement in 75% of the cases.
