*Note*: We performed multivariate survival analysis using Cox proportional hazards model while accounting for the following variables, which demonstrated significance on univariate analysis (*P*< 0.05): SINS score, local radiation before surgery, presence of liver metastasis, primary melanoma, and primary genitourinary cancer.PR, preoperative radiation; SINS, spine instability neoplastic score.
