Objective:The authors reviewed 51 patients of spinal cord tumor located at the craniovertebral junction and high cervical area to determine which factors influenced resectability, complications, and postoperative outcomes. Methods:Radiological examinations, clinical data, and operation notes were evaluated, and additional follow-up information was obtained from outpatient examinations. The mean follow-up period was 3.5 years Results:The most common neurological findings were motor deficit(72.5%) and sensory change(47.1%). There was no clinical finding that is considered as pathognomic. Meningioma(18 cases, 35.3%) was the most common tumor in this region. Total removal was achieved in 45 patients. There was no surgical mortality. Immediate postoperative motor weakness were encounted in 11 cases(21.6%) which improved in long term follow-up except two patients. Conclusions:The location and relationship of the tumor to surrounding struncture determine its resectability. Postoperative results were related to the preoperative neurological status and pathological findings.
