Ethiopathogenesis, diagnostic and treatment of spinal haemangioma remains suggestive topic not only
for surgeons. The development of diagnostic imaging methods allows more precise evaluation of the
pathology and optimal therapeutic planning. We have many therapeutic modalities: selective
embolisation, radiotherapy, vertebroplasty, alcohol ablation and surgery. It depends on radiologic
findings and clinical status which of them is used. The treatment of emergent compression is still the
domain of surgeon. In the therapy of haemangiomas causing local pain, we prefer less invasive
procedures. The interdisciplinary cooperation is required for the successful treatment.
