Table 3 Occurrence of neurological deficits (ND) at admission and new occurrence of neurology during hospital stay

From: Does the anatomical region predict blood loss or neurological deficits in embolized renal cancer spine metastases? A single-center experience with 31 patients

TSM =17 patients, LSM =14 patients ND at admission New ND after embolization New ND after surgery New ND after embolization direct surgery

  1. The number of neurological findings classified by the TSM and LSM is shown. Subgroups were evaluated according to neurology on admission, new neurology after embolization, new neurology after surgery, and new neurology after the patient was driven from embolization directly to surgery and operated. Neurological deficits were divided into motor and sensory deficits, and incomplete and complete paraparesis
