  • compresses
  • The interlaminar ligamentum flavum is probably only thickened by retraction due to the redundance and "mushrooms" into the spinal canal and compresses the traversing intrathecal root against the hard spondylophytic beak. (spineuniverse.com)
  • methods
  • Like other books in the Springer series New Procedures in Spinal Interventional Neuroradiology, this practice-oriented volume will fill a significant gap in the literature and meet the need expressed by a large number of specialists (interventional neuroradiologists and radiologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopedists) for a topical and handy guide that specifically illustrates the presently available materials and methods. (lovereading.co.uk)
  • stenotic
  • Closeup view of the midlumbar spinal canal in a severely degenerated and stenotic specimen from an elderly male adult who had a history of prolonged low back pain without radicular symptoms. (spineuniverse.com)
  • causes
  • Due to the increase in life duration DLSS condition becomes symptomatic and is one of the most common causes for spinal surgery in the elderly population over the age of 50. (hindawi.com)
  • However, due to many possible causes, the diameter of the canal can decrease, leading to the subject of this exploratory article: a narrowed cervical spinal canal. (neck-pain-treatment.org)
  • Introduction/Purpose: Spinal disease is one of the major causes of disability and early retirement in working dogs. (avmi.net)
  • surgery
  • We secured six figure damages for a patient who was left with permanent urinary, bowel and sexual dysfunction and mobility issues after spinal surgery. (penningtons.co.uk)
  • During the operation, the surgeon encountered significant bleeding and used a haemostatic material to deal with this, leaving the material in the spinal canal after the surgery. (penningtons.co.uk)
  • During that surgery, the blood soaked haemostatic material was removed from the spinal canal. (penningtons.co.uk)
  • spines
  • Segmentation of the spinal canal in medical image data is an important task because it facilitates analysis, diagnosis, and therapy planning related to spines. (google.com)
  • All the universal aging processes that act on our spines will have the potential to narrow the central canal, usually to a mild to moderate amount, over many decades of life. (neck-pain-treatment.org)
  • 1989
  • Pena CA, Lee YY, Tassel PV, Rich D (1989) MR appearance of acquired spinal epidermoid tumors. (springer.com)
  • surgeon
  • We were instructed to investigate a claim against the surgeon and obtained independent expert evidence from another spinal surgeon. (penningtons.co.uk)
  • complications
  • 2 There are a number of case reports in the literature that document accidental spinal and epidural anesthesia as complications of attempted interscalene block. (asahq.org)
  • neutral
  • At the extreme of physiological axial rotation (47 degrees) the spinal canal is reduced to 61% of its cross-sectional area in neutral rotation. (ovid.com)
  • degrees
  • A viscoelastic core enables 6 degrees of freedom providing a real-time look at a spinal motion segment….helping communicate the mechanical factors responsible for injury as well as identifying the movements most favourable for the best outcomes. (dynamicdiscdesigns.com)
  • Medical
  • Medical conditions where inflammation is present, such as osteoarthritis , can also place increased pressure on the spinal cord. (leading-medicine-guide.com)
  • A method and apparatus for automatic spinal canal segmentation in medical image data, such as computed tomography (CT) image data, is disclosed. (google.com)
  • An initial set of spinal canal voxels is detected in the 3D medical image using a trained classifier. (google.com)
  • An updated set of spinal canal voxels is detected in the 3D medical image using random walks segmentation based on the sampled seed points. (google.com)
  • The present invention relates to automatic spinal canal segmentation in medical image data, and more particularly, to automatic spinal canal segmentation in computed tomography images using cascaded random walks. (google.com)
  • segment
  • This AV fistula did not contribute blood flow to the cervical segment of the spinal cord, which was tested by an intra-arterial injection of methohexital. (ovid.com)
  • common
  • Decompressive lumbar laminectomy is the most common surgical procedure, with or without fusion in consideration of coexistence of spinal instability [ 10 - 30 ]. (hindawi.com)
