Description

A spinal tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord and/or spinal column. These cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, seemingly unchecked by the mechanisms that control normal cells. Spinal tumors are referred to in two ways, by the region of the spine in which they occur or their location within the spine. Primary spinal tumors fall into a distinct category because their timely diagnosis and the immediate institution of treatment have an enormous impact on the patient's overall prognosis and hope for a cure.

Purpose: The purpose of this research was the analysis of spinal tumors operated and treated at the University Clinical Center of Kosovo in the Neurosurgery Clinic.

Materials and methods: In this retrospective clinical study, are taken into account spinal tumors operated in the Emergency Center of UCCK during the period 2015-2020 . Depending on the region and location of the tumors, the patients who underwent the operations were selected in Observation groups.

Results: In the neurosurgery clinic at UCCK since 2015-2020 have been operated and treated a number of 66 cases of spinal tumors . In the results obtained it was noticed that most of the patients were females with a total of 40 cases or 60.61%. The researched cases were also looked at in terms of neurological function, 29 patients had neurological deficits expressed as Quadriparesis, Tetraplegia, Paraparesis and Paraplegia. The time that patients spent in the Neurosurgery Clinic at UCCK, varies depending on the region where the operation was performed and the condition of the patients after the operation.

Conclusion: From the results achieved in this research we have concluded that women have been more prone to the formation of back tumors in almost 2/3 of cases (60.61%) compared to men. Depending on the location of the tumors it has been seen that the most common are tumors of the Lumbo-Sacral region expressed as Meningiomas, Astrocytoma, Ependymoma, Neurinoma and Metastatic Tumors.
