Abstract


The treatment of bone metastases from urological tumors represents a palliative form of therapy, apart from the resection of solitary metastases from renal cell carcinomas. Due to the high incidence of spinal metastases this can result in clinically significant symptoms and possible complications for patients, such as pain, spinal instability and compression of the spinal canal with corresponding neurological deficits. By the use of targeted diagnostics and induction of radiotherapeutic and/or surgical treatment, for the majority of patients an immediate reduction in pain as well as early mobilization and sometimes even regression of existing neurological deficits and therefore an improved quality of life can be achieved.
