Table 5 Blood loss and neurological deficits in relation to time between embolization and surgery

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

Time embolization-surgery Blood loss New neurology after embolization New neurology after surgery New neurology, after embolization direct surgery
<1000 ml >1000 ml
< 24 h
 TSM (15) 10 5 1 2 1
 LSM (12) 7 5 0 1 0
>24 < 48 h
 TSM (2) 1 1 1 0 0
 LSM (2) 1 1 1 1 0
  1. The table shows the classification of TSM and LSM patients in terms of time between embolization and surgery (<24 h, >24 < 28 h) and intraoperative blood loss (<1000 ml, >1000 ml). Furthermore, the rate of new neurological deficit after embolization, after surgery, or if surgery was performed immediately after embolization was evaluated in the TSM and LSM groups
  2. The relative amount of new neurological deficits following embolization was higher in the >24<48h group: 24h: n%= 3,7 vs. >24<48h, n%= 50
  3. The relative amount of new neurological deficits following surgery was higher in the >24<48h group: 24h: n%= 11 vs. >24<48h, n%= 25
