Abstract

Aim: Metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) is an oncological emergency. Many elderly patients cannot tolerate intensive treatment and need individual approaches accounting for a patient's remaining lifetime. The goal of the present study was to develop a survival score for elderly prostate cancer patients with MSCC. Patients and Methods: Nine characteristics were analyzed in 243 patients: age, performance status, interval from prostate cancer diagnosis until MSCC, affected vertebrae, ambulatory status, further bone lesions, visceral metastases, time developing motor deficits, fractionation schedule. Results: Pre-radiotherapy ambulatory status (p
