Treatment of spinal metastases and MSCC

Metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) occurs because of pressure on the spinal cord or its vascular supply, and may result from soft tissue tumour occupying the space within the spinal canal (epidural tumour), structural failure including pathological fracture or collapse (deformity or dangerous shift) of the spinal column, or a combination of soft tissue and bony intrusion on the cord.
