AbstractPre-operative embolization of spinal tumours are mainly performed using a transarterial approach. Percutaneous embolization of spinal tumours are undertaken much less frequently, though its use has been reported in hypervascular spinal metastases1,2 and spinal paraganglioma.3 We present a patient in whom pre-operative percutaneous embolization has been performed to a recurrent lumbar nerve root haemangioblastoma that had previously been embolized using a transarterial approach. Percutaneous embolization, through targeted percutaneous puncture of the extradural component, helped reduce intraoperative blood loss, and minimize risk of spinal ischaemia.
