Abstract

Spinal alignment, particularly with respect to spinopelvic parameters, is highly correlated with morbidity and health-related quality-of-life outcomes. Although the importance of spinal alignment has been emphasized in the deformity literature, spinopelvic parameters have not been considered in the context of spine oncology. Because the aim of oncologic spine surgery is mostly palliative, consideration of spinopelvic parameters could improve postoperative outcomes in both the primary and metastatic tumor population by taking overall vertebral stability into account. This review highlights the relevance of focal and global spinal alignment, particularly related to spinopelvic parameters, in the treatment of spine tumors.
