  • transplants
  • The American Red Cross and some other agencies accepting blood donations consider dura mater transplants, along with receipt of pituitary-derived growth hormone, a risk factor due to concerns about Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease . (wikidoc.org)
  • Note also that this is the first study to find such an association with porcine dura mater transplants, but the link is probably a matter of chance. (medpagetoday.com)
  • ligaments
  • Massage therapists can now safely address all soft tissues, including ligaments, nerve dura, fasciae, discs and joint capsules, responsible for much of the pain previously blamed on muscles alone. (erikdalton.com)
  • skull
  • Arterial bleeding can result in an epidural hematoma , which is when blood collects between the dura mater and the skull. (healthline.com)
  • The two layers of dura mater run together throughout most of the skull. (wikidoc.org)
  • An epidural hematoma is a collection of blood between the dura and the inner surface of the skull, and is usually due to arterial bleeding. (wikidoc.org)
  • rats
  • Nociceptive behaviors were induced by electrical stimulation of the dura mater surrounding the superior sagittal sinus in conscious adult rats and reduced by morphine and rizatriptan benzoate. (semanticscholar.org)
  • tissue
  • Is there a consensus as to what should be done in the case where a surgeon encounters a large amount of established scar tissue external to the dura mater while performing a new fusion surgery on a patient who had adjacent areas fused prior to the current procedure? (rutgers.edu)
  • If accepted procedure would be to remove the scar tissue no matter the fact it covered my Dura Mater and that the Dura was noted to be weakened in the area already, then I can understand that sometimes you just never know what will happen. (rutgers.edu)
  • When he went to do the hardware removal the hardware was covered in scar tissue that extended to cover the dura mater. (rutgers.edu)
  • He removed the scar tissue from the dura mater while getting to the hardware. (rutgers.edu)
  • He did not realize how frail the dura mater had become under the scar tissue and, post-op, I suffered a large tear (1' diameter) in the dura at that spot which resulted in needing revision surgery 2 weeks later. (rutgers.edu)
  • During the revision surgery 2 weeks later, when I was opened up, about 1.5 liters of CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) was flushed out of the area and no significant CSF appeared to be in the Cauda Equina, and the nerves in the CE had been exposed to blood and tissue normally held exterior to the CE by the dura mater. (rutgers.edu)
  • roots
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate consecutive changes in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and fractional anisotropy (FA) values of normal lumbar nerve roots from the junction of the dura mater. (biomedcentral.com)
  • ADC values of all L4, 5, and S1 nerve roots decreased linearly up to 15 mm from the dura junction and was constant distally afterward. (biomedcentral.com)
  • residual
  • The additional indication allows surgeons in the European Union to use Hemopatch to address bleeding and seal suture lines in diverse, complex procedures such as sealing residual air leaks during lung surgery, or replacing dura mater during neurosurgery preventing the loss of cerebrospinal fluid.

  • mother
  • The membrane was called mater , or mother, because it was formerly thought to give rise to every membrane of the body. (everything2.com)
  • Famous for their amazing ability to precisely define complex anatomical structures, the early Greeks hit the nail on its proverbial head when they labeled dura mater, the "tough mother. (erikdalton.com)
  • layers
  • Because the layers are plicated, or folded like a fan, the dura has the ability to slightly elongate. (erikdalton.com)
  • surgery
  • In the eighth case, Dr. Knight and colleagues found, a person undergoing surgery for a right frontoparietal meningioma in 1988 was given a transplant of porcine dura. (medpagetoday.com)
  • structures
  • The head, spine and all related myofascial structures are designed for constant movement and motion that simultaneously change the shape of the dura mater. (erikdalton.com)
  • Often
  • Patients with dCJD in Japan received dura mater graft more often for non-life-threatening conditions, such as meningioma, hemifacial spasm and trigeminal neuralgia, than in other countries. (bmj.com)
  • matter
  • Our study demonstrated that ADC and FA values of each L4, 5, and S1 at the proximal portion from the junction of the dura matter changed linearly. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Japan
  • According to a survey by the former Health and Welfare Ministry, a total of up to 500,000 tainted dura mater products were imported to Japan between 1973 and 1997, and about 200,000 people are believed to have undergone transplant operations. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Objective More than 60% of patients worldwide with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) associated with dura mater graft (dCJD) have been diagnosed in Japan. (bmj.com)
