  • Assistant Lecturer Dr Andreas Joedicke heads the Clinic, which focuses on the care of complex neurosurgical conditions in the region of the head and the base of the skull and on brain surgery, as well as spinal surgery. (leading-medicine-guide.com)
  • Intraoperative cranial neuromonitoring (cortical / subcortical stimulation, MEP, SEP, cranial nerve monitoring), spinal and medullary (D-wave, MEP, SEP), at the base of the skull (cranial nerve and brain stem monitoring), neuromonitoring of microsurgery to the peripheral nerves.

  • Severe swelling and inflammation of the cord following impact → edema and autolysis → cord destruction propagates along the cord, ie ascending myelomalacia Diffuse progressive myelomalacia . (vetstream.com)
  • injuries
  • S100 β may be associated with neuroplasticity following spinal cord injuries with intervertebral disk extrusion. (hindawi.com)
  • Nevertheless, acupuncture has been used for treatment of thoracolumbar intervertebral disk disease (IVDD) [ 6 - 8 ] and spinal cord injuries with paralysis and paresis [ 9 ] in dogs. (hindawi.com)
  • resection
  • Spinal vertebra replacement techniques with en-bloc resection / 360° stabilisation in all segments of the spinal column (for the appropriate oncological indication) under functional monitoring. (leading-medicine-guide.com)
  • The patient underwent resection of the intraspinal mobile eighth rib head and posterior spinal instrumentation and was neurologically fully recovered six months postoperatively. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The patient underwent resection of the intraspinal mobile eighth rib head through a posterior approach and simultaneous correction and fusion of the kyphoscoliotic curve with posterior spinal instrumentation from T1 to L2. (biomedcentral.com)
  • extrusion
  • Intervertebral disk extrusion is typically associated with chondroid degeneration and involves the herniation of nuclear material through all layers of the ruptured annulus fibrosus into the vertebral canal. (vetstream.com)
  • Extrusion of disk material causes primary spinal cord injury and associated neurological signs by concussion Spinal cord: concussion , compression, laceration and ischemic events. (vetstream.com)
  • Force of impact on the cord rather than the size is critical: small, high velocity explosive extrusion is far more damaging to the cord parenchyma than a less forceful impact from a larger, slower fragment. (vetstream.com)
  • We review a case of nerve-root and cord compression from methylmethacrylate extrusion during vertebroplasty. (nih.gov)
  • Patients
  • All the patients were initially treated and stabilised in the referral hospitals and then referred to the spinal unit at King George V hospital in Durban for assessment and definitive treatment. (scielo.org.za)
  • 2) Only patients who had been treated in the spinal unit. (scielo.org.za)
  • DCM is estimated to be the most common cause of spinal cord dysfunction [ 2 ] and despite surgery to alleviate compression, most patients retain lifelong disabilities. (springer.com)
  • Fusion
  • With advice from my neuro surgeon I opted not to have spinal fusion due to my young age, and the increased deterioration it would cause to adjacent disks. (allnurses.com)
  • upper
  • This approach provides excellent direct access to the upper thoracic vertebral bodies, optimising both the neurological outcome and the preservation of spinal alignment in the cervicothoracic transition zone. (hindawi.com)
