Unstable spine – Low grade ESCC

Patients with mechanical instability, have SINS 13-18 or 7-12, accompanied by movement-exacerbated pain.
Patients with low grade ESCC (0-1) have tumors that are either confined to bone or that extend into the epidural space without causing displacement or deformation of the spinal cord.
