The vertebral column represents the most common bony site for metastasis with an incidence ranged from 30% to 70% in patients with metastatic neoplasms. The dorsal spine carries the highest frequent site for metastasis all over the vertebral column followed by the lumber spine. These metastatic lesions are clinical entities that often necessitate a complex spinal decompression and anterior reconstruction. Posterolateral approaches alone allow for excellent decompression with transpedicular fixation and safe visualization of the neural elements for corpectomy and reconstruction so the investigators can avoid the complications that can be happened with the staged surgery.
Purpose: investigators' aim in the study is to report cases and evaluate investigators' approach for fixation and assess the postoperative period regarding pain improvement and neurological deficit.

patients with metastatic spinal lesions
Procedure: Posterolateral corpectomy
Investigators' goal in this study is to report clinical series of 26 patients in Sohag university hospital with dorsolumbar metastatic lesions from different primaries treated by single-stage posterolateral circumferential corpectomy with reconstruction by a pyramesh titanium cage and account the degree of improvement regarding the pain.
- (Quebec scale) to assess back pain in three years [ Time Frame: 3 years ](Quebec Scale) the lower scale the better is the pain
- (muscle power grading scale) to evaluate motor power using in three years [ Time Frame: 3 years ](Muscle power grading) the higher the grade the better is the motor power
