A Novel Use of the Intraoperative MRI for Metastatic Spine Tumors: Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy for Percutaneous Treatment of Epidural Metastatic Spine Disease.

Abstract:

:Spinal laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) appears to be a promising novel modality for treatment of epidural metastatic spine disease in patients who are poor candidates for larger-scale oncologic spinal surgery and can act synergetically with spinal stereotactic radiosurgery to maximize local control and palliate pain. This technique is ideally suited for the intraoperative MRI suite to monitor the extent of the ablation in the epidural space. As percutaneous navigation, imaging, and LITT technology improve, broader applicability of this minimally invasive technique in spinal oncology is foreseen.
