The Enneking surgical staging system does not consider this important factor. Use of this system along with the Weinstein-Boriani-Biagini WBB classification has been studied for spinal tumors and appears to be safe and feasible and to improve disease control and survival, although both systems show only moderate interobserver reliability and additional studies are warranted [ 1 ].

Enneking Staging System and TGNM Staging System for Musculoskeletal Tumors

Since its establishment inthe American Joint Committee for Cancer AJCC has undertaken the responsibility for developing clinically useful staging systems for various types of cancer.
