Paraplegia: Severe or complete loss of motor function in the lower extremities and lower portions of the trunk. This condition is most often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, although BRAIN DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause bilateral leg weakness.Spastic Paraplegia, Hereditary: A group of inherited diseases that share similar phenotypes but are genetically diverse. Different genetic loci for autosomal recessive, autosomal dominant, and x-linked forms of hereditary spastic paraplegia have been identified. Clinically, patients present with slowly progressive distal limb weakness and lower extremity spasticity. Peripheral sensory neurons may be affected in the later stages of the disease. (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Jan;64(1):61-6; Curr Opin Neurol 1997 Aug;10(4):313-8)Spinal Cord Ischemia: Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.Spinal Cord Injuries: Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).Tuberculosis, Spinal: Osteitis or caries of the vertebrae, usually occurring as a complication of tuberculosis of the lungs.Paraparesis: Mild to moderate loss of bilateral lower extremity motor function, which may be a manifestation of SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; MUSCULAR DISEASES; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; parasagittal brain lesions; and other conditions.Aortic Aneurysm, Thoracic: An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the THORACIC AORTA. This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.Quadriplegia: Severe or complete loss of motor function in all four limbs which may result from BRAIN DISEASES; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or rarely MUSCULAR DISEASES. The locked-in syndrome is characterized by quadriplegia in combination with cranial muscle paralysis. Consciousness is spared and the only retained voluntary motor activity may be limited eye movements. This condition is usually caused by a lesion in the upper BRAIN STEM which injures the descending cortico-spinal and cortico-bulbar tracts.Spinal Cord Compression: Acute and chronic conditions characterized by external mechanical compression of the SPINAL CORD due to extramedullary neoplasm; EPIDURAL ABSCESS; SPINAL FRACTURES; bony deformities of the vertebral bodies; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations vary with the anatomic site of the lesion and may include localized pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence, and impotence.Laminectomy: A surgical procedure that entails removing all (laminectomy) or part (laminotomy) of selected vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and/or SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. Vertebral lamina is the thin flattened posterior wall of vertebral arch that forms the vertebral foramen through which pass the spinal cord and nerve roots.Hysteria: Historical term for a chronic, but fluctuating, disorder beginning in early life and characterized by recurrent and multiple somatic complaints not apparently due to physical illness. This diagnosis is not used in contemporary practice.Wheelchairs: Chairs mounted on wheels and designed to be propelled by the occupant.Myelography: X-ray visualization of the spinal cord following injection of contrast medium into the spinal arachnoid space.Thoracic Vertebrae: A group of twelve VERTEBRAE connected to the ribs that support the upper trunk region.Crutches: Wooden or metal staffs designed to aid a person in walking. (UMDNS,1999)Muscle Spasticity: A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)Spinal Cord: A cylindrical column of tissue that lies within the vertebral canal. It is composed of WHITE MATTER and GRAY MATTER.Aortography: Radiographic visualization of the aorta and its branches by injection of contrast media, using percutaneous puncture or catheterization procedures.Pedigree: The record of descent or ancestry, particularly of a particular condition or trait, indicating individual family members, their relationships, and their status with respect to the trait or condition.Blood Vessel Prosthesis Implantation: Surgical insertion of BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESES to repair injured or diseased blood vessels.Aneurysm, Dissecting: Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.Myelitis, Transverse: Inflammation of a transverse portion of the spinal cord characterized by acute or subacute segmental demyelination or necrosis. The condition may occur sporadically, follow an infection or vaccination, or present as a paraneoplastic syndrome (see also ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, ACUTE DISSEMINATED). Clinical manifestations include motor weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1242-6)Arachnoiditis: Acute or chronic inflammation of the arachnoid membrane of the meninges most often involving the spinal cord or base of the brain. This term generally refers to a persistent inflammatory process characterized by thickening of the ARACHNOID membrane and dural adhesions. Associated conditions include prior surgery, infections, trauma, SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, and chemical irritation. Clinical features vary with the site of inflammation, but include cranial neuropathies, radiculopathies, and myelopathies. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch48, p25)Tabes Dorsalis: Parenchymatous NEUROSYPHILIS marked by slowly progressive degeneration of the posterior columns, posterior roots, and ganglia of the spinal cord. The condition tends to present 15 to 20 years after the initial infection and is characterized by lightening-like pains in the lower extremities, URINARY INCONTINENCE; ATAXIA; severely impaired position and vibratory sense, abnormal gait (see GAIT DISORDERS, NEUROLOGIC), OPTIC ATROPHY; Argyll-Robertson pupils, hypotonia, hyperreflexia, and trophic joint degeneration (Charcot's Joint; see ARTHROPATHY, NEUROGENIC). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p726)Epidural Space: Space between the dura mater and the walls of the vertebral canal.Paraparesis, Spastic: Mild or moderate loss of motor function accompanied by spasticity in the lower extremities. This condition is a manifestation of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES that cause injury to the motor cortex or descending motor pathways.Cinnarizine: A piperazine derivative having histamine H1-receptor and calcium-channel blocking activity with vasodilating and antiemetic properties but it induces PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS.Aorta, Thoracic: The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.Hematoma, Epidural, Spinal: A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.Adaptor Protein Complex 4: An adaptor protein complex involved in transport of molecules between the TRANS-GOLGI NETWORK and the endosomal-lysosomal system.Aortic Rupture: The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.Genes, Recessive: Genes that influence the PHENOTYPE only in the homozygous state.Genes, Dominant: Genes that influence the PHENOTYPE both in the homozygous and the heterozygous state.Constriction: The act of constricting.Blood Vessel Prosthesis: Device constructed of either synthetic or biological material that is used for the repair of injured or diseased blood vessels.Heart Bypass, Left: Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.Decompression, Surgical: A surgical operation for the relief of pressure in a body compartment or on a body part. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Aortic Aneurysm: An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of AORTA.Cerebrospinal Fluid Pressure: Manometric pressure of the CEREBROSPINAL FLUID as measured by lumbar, cerebroventricular, or cisternal puncture. Within the cranial cavity it is called INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE.Spondylitis: Inflammation of the SPINE. This includes both arthritic and non-arthritic conditions.Cellulose, Oxidized: A cellulose of varied carboxyl content retaining the fibrous structure. It is commonly used as a local hemostatic and as a matrix for normal blood coagulation.Spinal NeoplasmsAortic Aneurysm, Abdominal: An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the ABDOMINAL AORTA which gives rise to the visceral, the parietal, and the terminal (iliac) branches below the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.Adenosine Triphosphatases: A group of enzymes which catalyze the hydrolysis of ATP. The hydrolysis reaction is usually coupled with another function such as transporting Ca(2+) across a membrane. These enzymes may be dependent on Ca(2+), Mg(2+), anions, H+, or DNA.Spinal Injuries: Injuries involving the vertebral column.Kyphosis: Deformities of the SPINE characterized by an exaggerated convexity of the vertebral column. The forward bending of the thoracic region usually is more than 40 degrees. This deformity sometimes is called round back or hunchback.Reflex, Babinski: A reflex found in normal infants consisting of dorsiflexion of the HALLUX and abduction of the other TOES in response to cutaneous stimulation of the plantar surface of the FOOT. In adults, it is used as a diagnostic criterion, and if present is a NEUROLOGIC MANIFESTATION of dysfunction in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.Spinal DiseasesAortic Diseases: Pathological processes involving any part of the AORTA.

PMID: 6462733 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE. Abstract/OtherAbstract:. Only nine cases of adrenomyeloneuropathy have been reported in the literature. It manifested as adrenal insufficiency, spastic paraparesis, loss of bowel, bladder and sexual functions, and peripheral neuropathy. Our paper describes a patient with the diagnosis of adrenomyeloneuropathy who was admitted to our hospital for rehabilitation. Family and neurological history, physical examination and special laboratory studies such as ACTH stimulation test, electrodiagnostic findings, cystometrogram and sexual function evaluation were essential to establish the diagnosis of this disease. His rehabilitation consisted of bowel and bladder training, ambulation with long-leg braces and crutches, wheelchair mobilization and transfers, and independence of all activities of daily living.

... ICD9 = 'Paraplegia' is an impairment in motor or sensory function of the lower extremities. It is usually caused by spinal cord injury or a congenital condition such as spina bifida that affects the neural elements of the spinal canal. If four limbs are affected by paralysis, tetraplegia or quadriplegia, is the correct term. Complications Treatment Regeneration of the spinal cord. Complications. As paraplegia is most often the result of a traumatic injury to the spinal cord tissue and the resulting inflammation, other nerve-related complications can and do occur. Individuals with paraplegia can range in their level of disability, requiring treatments to vary from case to case. From a rehabilitation standpoint, the most important factor is to gain as much functionality and independence back as possible. 3 Activities of daily living ADLs can be quite challenging at first for those with a spinal cord injury SCI. With the aid of physiotherapists and occupational therapists, individuals with an SCI can learn ...

... MedLine Citation:. BACKGROUND: Autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraparesis with thin corpus callosum ARHSP-TCC is being increasingly recognized as a variety of spastic paraplegia with mental retardation. SPG11 gene mutations have been reported to be associated with ARHSP-TCC. RESULTS: Chromosome 15q13-15 segregating autosomal disease haplotypes were different across the kindreds and sequencing of SPG11 identified four novel frameshift/nonsense segregating mutations and the R2034X mutation, which were in heterozygous compound status. CONCLUSIONS: Loss-of-function SPG11 mutations are the major cause of autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraparesis with thin corpus callosum in Southern Europe, even in apparently sporadic cases. 18492089 - A novel mutation in the gdap1 gene is associated with autosomal recessive charcot-marie...

Here is a post from a friend of mine who has Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia HSP. It was originally posted on October 18, 2010 on Sam Patierno's website. It is a story of inspiration and persistence. Enjoy. I played every sport imaginable growing up. I was always obsessed with playing sports. I loved to compete. I excelled in basketball and tennis. I was captain of the tennis team in college. Unfortunately after I graduated college I started having trouble with my balance and coordination. Like anyone would do I went to my doctor to see what was wrong. 8 years later, about 8 neurologists, 1o MRI s, spinal tap, and many more uncomfortable tests I was diagnosed with a very rare hereditary neurological disorder called HSP.

*  Neuropathology
... Hereditary spastic paraplegia. Neuropathology. Major neuropathologic features of autosomal dominant, uncomplicated HSP are axonal degeneration that is maximal in the terminal portions of the longest descending and ascending tracts crossed and uncrossed corticospinal tracts to the legs and fasciculus gracilis, respectively. Behan and Maia, 1974 ; Harding, 1993 ; Schwarz and Liu, 1956 Spinocerebellar fibers are involved to a lesser extent. Neuronal cell bodies of degenerating fibers were preserved, and there was no evidence of primary demyelination. Loss of anterior horn cells is observed in some cases. Dorsal root ganglia, posterior roots and peripheral nerves are normal. The regional pattern of axonal degeneration in uncomplicated HSP is quite different from that seen in "system degeneration" diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS. System degeneration in ALS includes cortical pyramidal neurons, corticospinal tracts, anterior horn cells innervated by corticospinal tracts and skeletal muscle. ...

The absolute levels of P60-katanin and spastin expression in femtomoles were used to calculate the overall loss of microtubule-severing activity resulting from 50% reduction of spastin activity caused by mutations. Sp/AAA antibody does not cross-react with P60-katanin in a lysate from P60-katanin P60 transfected cells. The estimated percentage loss of total microtubule-severing activity resulting from a 50% loss of M85-spastin is shown in Figure 4. However, even if we assumethatspastinis10timesasactiveasP60-katanin,thelossof total severing activity in adult spinal cord would be ?40%.

Lee — Friday, 11/26/10, 5:34 pm Just dumb : OLYMPIA A judge fined a wheelchair-bound Olympia man $4,000 Wednesday for growing 42 marijuana plants in his home, but he imposed no jail time. A jury convicted William Kurtz, 58, in October of felony counts of possession of marijuana over 40 grams and manufacture of marijuana. He has no prior felony criminal history and uses the wheelchair because of a medical condition. Before trial, Kurtz’s attorneys fought to be allowed to present a medicinal-marijuana defense to the jury, but Thurston County Superior Court Judge Carol Murphy did not allow it. Prosecutor Scott Jackson argued that Kurtz did not have a medicinal-marijuana card in March, when Thurston County Narcotics Task Force detectives found the plants, as well as more than 15 ounces of packaged marijuana, in his home in the 11800 block of Champion Drive Southwest. At trial, Hiatt tried to...

... Friday Pearls by Ellen Troyer, MT MA. Biosyntrx 800 688-6815. 2009 Health Freedom Bills Friday, August 14, 2009. Health Freedom Act HR 3395. This bill removes FDA’s power of prior restraint over all nutrient-disease relationship statements. Under this bill, FDA may not prohibit any statement concerning a nutrient affecting a disease including treatment effects from being made in the market. The FDA may only act against a statement if the agency possesses clear and convincing evidence that the statement is false. Presently, the FDA can block a large amount of truthful information concerning the effects of nutrients and foods on disease from reaching consumers, including a statement as simple as, "Vitamin C prevents scurvy." The Health Freedom Act removes that barrier while preserving the government’s power to prosecute those who communicate falsehood. The First Amendment is meant to disarm the federal government of the power to impose a prior restraint on speech. Freedom of Health Speech Act HR 3394. ...

*  Paraplegin
... 'Paraplegin' is a protein that in humans is encoded by the 'SPG7' gene located on chromosome 16. Structure Function Interactions Clinical significance References Further reading External links. Structure. The SPG7 gene contains 21 exons and encodes for a protein that is approximately 88 kDa in size. Two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene. The structure of the SPG7 resolved by X-ray crystallography reveals that the protein functions as a hexamer and is structurally most similar to bacterial FtSH proteases. It contains an FtsH -homology protease domain as well as an AAA+ homology ATPase domain. The protein is thought to use ATPase-driven conformational change s to the AAA-domain in order to deliver the substrate peptides to be degraded to its protease core. The SPG7 protein is a nuclear-encoded metalloprotease protein that is a member of the AAA protein family. Members of this protein family share an ATPase domain and have roles in diverse cellular processes i...

OBJECTIVES: Spinal cord ischemia remains a devastating complication after thoracic aortic surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate the pathophysiology of spinal cord ischemia after thoracic aortic endografting and the role of intercostal artery blood supply for the spinal cord in a standardized animal model., n=6 or III open thoracotomy with clipping of all intercostal arteries n=5. RESULTS: Incidence of paraplegia was 100% in group I and 0% in group II p=0.0004. When compared to the endovascular group, there was a higher rate of histological changes associated with spinal cord ischemia in the animals of the control group p=0.0096. Group III animals showed no permanent neurological deficit and only 20% infarction rate p=0.0318 compared to group I. CONCLUSIONS: In sheep, incidence of histological and clinical ischemic inju...

Although considerable controversy exists over the most appropriate way to manage acute spinal cord injuries, early surgical intervention or decompression remains the best treatment option in managing acute compressive injuries in veterinary patients. 2-4 Many animals with SCI secondary to trauma have other injuries that can alter the prognosis and course of treatment. Studies in dogs have also failed to establish the clinical efficacy of MPSS, although no blinded clinical trial has been done. 45 Both bone marrow stromal cells and freshly collected bone marrow have been shown in human clinical trials to be safe and to show partial improvement of function in patients with SCI. 23,36,70 However, human clinical trials did not show a significant improvement in outcome with naloxone treatment, and the reported effects are likely secondary to the improvement in spinal cord blood flow.

(1/1047) Energy cost of propulsion in standard and ultralight wheelchairs in people with spinal cord injuries.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Wheelchair- and subject-related factors influence the efficiency of wheelchair propulsion. The purpose of this study was to compare wheelchair propulsion in ultralight and standard wheelchairs in people with different levels of spinal cord injury. SUBJECTS: Seventy-four subjects (mean age=26.2 years, SD=7.14, range=17-50) with spinal cord injury resulting in motor loss (30 with tetraplegia and 44 with paraplegia) were studied. METHOD: Each subject propelled standard and ultralight wheelchairs around an outdoor track at self-selected speeds, while data were collected at 4 predetermined intervals. Speed, distance traveled, and oxygen cost (VO2 mL/kg/m) were compared by wheelchair, group, and over time, using a Bonferroni correction. RESULTS: In the ultralight wheelchair, speed and distance traveled were greater for both subjects with paraplegia and subjects with tetraplegia, whereas VO2 was less only for subjects with paraplegia. Subjects with paraplegia propelled faster and farther than did subjects with tetraplegia. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: The ultralight wheelchair improved the efficiency of propulsion in the tested subjects. Subjects with tetraplegia, especially at the C6 level, are limited in their ability to propel a wheelchair.  (+info)

(2/1047) Heart rate during exercise with leg vascular occlusion in spinal cord-injured humans.

Feed-forward and feedback mechanisms are both important for control of the heart rate response to muscular exercise, but their origin and relative importance remain inadequately understood. To evaluate whether humoral mechanisms are of importance, the heart rate response to electrically induced cycling was studied in participants with spinal cord injury (SCI) and compared with that elicited during volitional cycling in able-bodied persons (C). During voluntary exercise at an oxygen uptake of approximately 1 l/min, heart rate increased from 66 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 4 (SE) beats/min in seven C, and during electrically induced exercise at a similar oxygen uptake in SCI it increased from 73 +/- 3 to 110 +/- 8 beats/min. In contrast, blood pressure increased only in C (from 88 +/- 3 to 99 +/- 4 mmHg), confirming that, during exercise, blood pressure control is dominated by peripheral neural feedback mechanisms. With vascular occlusion of the legs, the exercise-induced increase in heart rate was reduced or even eliminated in the electrically stimulated SCI. For C, heart rate tended to be lower than during exercise with free circulation to the legs. Release of the cuff elevated heart rate only in SCI. These data suggest that humoral feedback is of importance for the heart rate response to exercise and especially so when influence from the central nervous system and peripheral neural feedback from the working muscles are impaired or eliminated during electrically induced exercise in individuals with SCI.  (+info)

(3/1047) Airway hyperresponsiveness to ultrasonically nebulized distilled water in subjects with tetraplegia.

The majority of otherwise healthy subjects with chronic cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) demonstrate airway hyperresponsiveness to aerosolized methacholine or histamine. The present study was performed to determine whether ultrasonically nebulized distilled water (UNDW) induces airway hyperresponsiveness and to further elucidate potential mechanisms in this population. Fifteen subjects with SCI, nine with tetraplegia (C4-7) and six with paraplegia (T9-L1), were initially exposed to UNDW for 30 s; spirometry was performed immediately and again 2 min after exposure. The challenge continued by progressively increasing exposure time until the forced expiratory volume in 1 s decreased 20% or more from baseline (PD20) or the maximal exposure time was reached. Five subjects responding to UNDW returned for a second challenge 30 min after inhalation of aerosolized ipratropium bromide (2.5 ml of a 0.6% solution). Eight of nine subjects with tetraplegia had significant bronchoconstrictor responses to UNDW (geometric mean PD20 = 7.76 +/- 7.67 ml), whereas none with paraplegia demonstrated a response (geometric mean PD20 = 24 ml). Five of the subjects with tetraplegia who initially responded to distilled water (geometric mean PD20 = 5.99 +/- 4.47 ml) were not responsive after pretreatment with ipratropium bromide (geometric mean PD20 = 24 ml). Findings that subjects with tetraplegia are hyperreactive to UNDW, a physicochemical agent, combined with previous observations of hyperreactivity to methacholine and histamine, suggest that overall airway hyperresponsiveness in these individuals is a nonspecific phenomenon similar to that observed in patients with asthma. The ability of ipratropium bromide to completely block UNDW-induced bronchoconstriction suggests that, in part, airway hyperresponsiveness in subjects with tetraplegia represents unopposed parasympathetic activity.  (+info)

(4/1047) Anaesthetic management of a woman who became paraplegic at 22 weeks' gestation after a spontaneous spinal cord haemorrhage secondary to a presumed arteriovenous malformation.

A 19-yr-old woman developed a paraplegia with a T10 sensory level at 22 weeks' gestation. The spinal injury was caused by spontaneous bleed of a presumed arteriovenous malformation in the spinal cord. She presented for Caesarean section at term because of the breech position of her fetus. The successful use of a combined spinal epidural-regional anaesthetic is described and the risks of general and regional anaesthesia are discussed.  (+info)

(5/1047) Occurrence of familial spastic paraplegia in only one of monozygous twins.

Three patients who suffer from spastic paraplegia are described who belong to two generations in one family. One of the patients, who has had symptoms and signs for at least 10 years, has a monozygous twin who is unaffected. Using blood groups and chromosomal polymorphisms, the probability of monozygosity is estimated to be 0.99986. The observation of nonpenetrance in familial spastic paraplegia suggests that environmental factors may be involved in provocation and emphasises the need for careful genetic counselling in this and related diseases.  (+info)

(6/1047) Neurotoxic effects of 2,5-hexanedione on normal and neurofilament-deficient quail.

The neurotoxic effects of 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD) were investigated using neurofilament (NF)-deficient (Quv) Japanese quail in comparison with normal Japanese quail. Both Quv and normal Japanese quail were inoculated intraperitoneally with 350 mg/kg/day 2,5-HD for 6 consecutive wk. The results of 2,5-HD exposure differed substantially between the 2 strains of Japanese quail. The 2,5-HD-exposed normal quail showed leg paralysis about 4 wk after initiation of dosing. Some treated normal quail fell into dysstasia and died of nutritional disturbances. Histologically, 2,5-HD-treated normal quail had NF-rich axonal swellings and degeneration in the distal parts of the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, and cerebellar peduncles. In contrast, 2,5-HD-injected Quv quail showed tonic convulsion, ataxia gait, severe quivering, and excitation about 2-3 days after administration. Some treated Quv birds died immediately after systemic tonic convulsion, probably because of asphyxia. Although all treated Quv quail showed neurologic signs, there were no recognizable 2,5-HD-induced lesions in the nervous system. After about 4-6 wk of dosing, 2,5-HD induced distal axonopathy in normal quail and acute neurotoxicity in Quv quail.  (+info)

(7/1047) Triplet pregnancy achieved through intracytoplasmic sperm injection with spermatozoa obtained by prostatic massage of a paraplegic patient: case report.

Spinal cord-injured men with ejaculation disorders can have children thanks to assisted reproduction techniques. Spermatozoa from these patients are usually obtained through vibratory stimulation, electroejaculation or by puncturing the seminal duct or the testicle. We present the first published case, as far as we are aware, of spermatozoa obtained through prostatic massage of a paraplegic patient. Penile vibratory stimulation was unsuccessful in this patient. In-vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with spermatozoa obtained through electroejaculation was performed at another centre but pregnancy was not achieved. Through prostatic massage, we obtained a total semen volume of 6 ml containing a total count of 12.32x10(6) spermatozoa (6.24x10(6) with tails), 8% of which had motility (graded + and ++); and 16% of which had normal morphology. The spermatozoa obtained were then used to perform IVF with ICSI and a triplet pregnancy was achieved. Prostatic massage appears to be an easy, non-traumatic and risk-free method to obtain spermatozoa from paraplegic patients.  (+info)

Does anyone know much about hereditary spastic paraparisis also known as familiar spastic paraplegia?


Has anyone got any info on Hereditary spastic paraparisis also known as familiar spastic paraplegia?? Or has or know any one who has it??Just any info would be great.
----------

My mother and I and 2 siblings all have (correct spelling) familial spastic paraplegia. My maternal Grandmother also had it. My mother is in a chair and I wear orthotics. My eldest sister has the disease the worst of any of the offspring.
 
As a child my mother used canes to walk, it has now progressed to the point that she uses a wheelchair most all the time. i.e. she does not use it to shower and can stand for minimal time. She still drives but has difficulty lifting her feet to do so.

If you haev questions please feel free to contact me. I will answer any questions I can.


Can anyone tell me anything they know about Paraplegia?


I did bunch of research on paraplegia for a report but I couldn't find anything useful. Any kind of info about it will help!Thanks!
----------

Couldn't find anything useful?  You're kidding?  There has to be literally millions of websites, articles, and information to be found on the subject.  Do your search with the exact words of what you're trying to find out about it.


How deep can a spinal cord injury be before an individual is paralyzed?


Can a shallow graze cause paraplegia, or does the trauma have to be deeper? And if so, about how deep?
----------

The answer depends on where the injury occurs.  You can think of the spinal cord as a series of highways, also called tracts, that run up and down carrying information from the brain to the rest of the body.  The extent of damage to these tracts will determine if there is any paralysis.  If all the tracts are damaged, then there can be complete paralysis below the level of injury.  If some of the tracts are damaged, then the person will experience a loss of neurological function related to the specific tract.  For instance, if the injury touched the lateral part of the cord, the patient may experience loss of temperature or light touch; however, if the front of the cord was injured, the patient may lose motor function.


What type of disability leaves someone unable to use their arms properly?


But everything else is fine? 

Paraplegia is the name for disability of the legs. Is there a name for something similar only affecting the arms?
I'm asking because I need information for a short story I'm writing, not for personal medical reasons. 

So the names of disabilities where the arms might be affected with paralysis like this (but nowhere else) will be very welcome.

What are some types of muscular disorders?


Would carpal tunnel syndrome, paraplegia and muscle spasms count as muscular disorders? 

If not - what are some common muscle disorders out there? I tried looking a couple up but they gave me diseases instead of disorders

How do paraplegic classifications work?


I've been noticing some people who have paraplegia say they have T# [insert number here] complete/incomplete [choose one] types... I was wondering how those work and what they mean/ how they differ or effect things.
----------

The "T" referrs to the level at which the spinal cord was injured Sometimes the cord is transected (completly cut) and there will be no movement or sensation in the lower part of the body. Sometimes the damage is not complete and they may have some sensation etc below the level of damage


Any good exercise books for people with disabilities?


I'm in a wheelchair and unable to use my legs.  I've been looking for exercise reference books and other information that is geared towards people with paraplegia.
