Resection of thoracic dumbbell neurinomas
: single postero-lateral approach or combined posterior and transthoracic approach?
Rates that did raise over time, mainly observed in women, were due to meningiomas, involving primarily thoracic levels, and neurinomas
. Although the study period covered 18 years, the amount of data is too little to draw firm conclusions about a univocal relationship between tumour type, metastasis in spinal cord, and changes over time.
