Abstract

AIM: To develop a tool for predicting survival of elderly patients with malignant spinal cord compression (MSCC) from renal cell carcinoma.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 71 elderly patients, 10 factors were analyzed. Predictive scores were generated based on 6-month survival rates.

RESULTS: Longer interval from renal cell carcinoma diagnosis to MSCC (p=0.019), lack of visceral metastases (p

CONCLUSION: This tool improves estimation of survival and personalized treatment options in elderly patients with MSCC from renal cell carcinoma.
