Anterior Spinal Artery Syndrome: Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1249-50)Infarction: Formation of an infarct, which is NECROSIS in tissue due to local ISCHEMIA resulting from obstruction of BLOOD CIRCULATION, most commonly by a THROMBUS or EMBOLUS.Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome: DUODENAL OBSTRUCTION by the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) which travels in the root of the MESENTERY and crosses over the DUODENUM. The syndrome is characterized by the dilated proximal duodenum and STOMACH, bloating, ABDOMINAL CRAMPS, and VOMITING. Often it is observed in patient with body casts after spinal surgery.Spinal Cord Vascular Diseases: Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).Duodenostomy: Surgical formation of an opening into the DUODENUM.Vertebral Artery: The first branch of the SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY with distribution to muscles of the NECK; VERTEBRAE; SPINAL CORD; CEREBELLUM; and interior of the CEREBRUM.Spinal Cord: A cylindrical column of tissue that lies within the vertebral canal. It is composed of WHITE MATTER and GRAY MATTER.Hypesthesia: Absent or reduced sensitivity to cutaneous stimulation.Arteries: The vessels carrying blood away from the heart.Angiography: Radiography of blood vessels after injection of a contrast medium.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.Duodenal Obstruction: Hindrance of the passage of luminal contents in the DUODENUM. Duodenal obstruction can be partial or complete, and caused by intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Simple obstruction is associated with diminished or stopped flow of luminal contents. Strangulating obstruction is associated with impaired blood flow to the duodenum in addition to obstructed flow of luminal contents.Jejunostomy: Surgical formation of an opening through the ABDOMINAL WALL into the JEJUNUM, usually for enteral hyperalimentation.Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Enterostomy: Creation of an artificial external opening or fistula in the intestines.

The crossing of the spinothalamic tract. (1/5)

The question whether the spinothalamic and spinoreticular fibres cross the cord transversely or diagonally was investigated in cases of anterolateral cordotomy and in a case of thrombosis of the anterior spinal artery. The pattern of sensory loss following transection of the anterolateral quadrant of the cord consists of a narrow area of decreased nociception and thermanalgesia at the level of the incision; it extends for 1-2 segments cranial and cordal to the incision. This area is immediately cranial to the area of total loss of these modalities. This pattern of sensory loss is explained as follows. The cordotomy incision transects two groups of fibres: those that are already within the anterior and anterolateral funiculi and those that are crossing the cord. The area of total thermanaesthesia and analgesia is due to transection of fibres that are already within this region. The area of partial sensory loss is due to transection of the fibres that are crossing the cord at that level. Owing to the craniocaudal extent of the branches of the dorsal roots, there is an overlap of their collaterals that results in every spinothalamic neurone receiving an input from several dorsal roots. The narrow cordotomy incision thus divides the few fibres crossing at that level, causing diminished noxious and thermal sensibility over a few segments above and below the incision. These facts can be accounted for only on the assumption that these spinothalamic fibres are crossing the cord transversely. This evidence of transverse crossing was found in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar segments. There were three of 63 cordotomies for which this explanation of the partial sensory loss could not be maintained. Although no explanation has been suggested, this is unlikely to be due to the fibres crossing the cord diagonally.  (+info)

Anterior spinal artery syndrome in a girl with Down syndrome: case report and literature review. (2/5)

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Anterior spinal artery syndrome is an extremely rare cause of acute ischemic cord infarction in children. It is caused by hypoperfusion of the anterior spinal artery, leading to ischemia in the anterior two thirds of the spinal cord. The presentation is usually with an acute and painful myelopathy with impaired bladder and bowel control. Pain and temperature sensation below the lesion are lost, whereas vibration and position sense is intact because of the preservation of the posterior columns. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 16-year-old girl with Down syndrome presented with urinary retention and acute complete flaccid paralysis of the legs with absent deep tendon and abdominal reflexes. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a signal abnormality in the anterior half of the thoracic cord from T5 to T12, consistent with anterior spinal artery infarction. CONCLUSIONS: Pediatricians should consider anterior spinal artery syndrome in the child who presents with acute, painful myelopathy. We summarize the etiology, neurological findings and outcomes of 19 children found in the literature with anterior spinal artery syndrome.  (+info)

Anterior spinal cord syndrome in a patient with Behcet's disease. (5/5)

Although neurological involvement in Behcet's disease is not so uncommon, isolated spinal cord disease is quite rare and reported to be observed in about 2% of all cases with neurological involvement. Here we report a Behcet's patient with spinal cord disease presented with anterior spinal cord syndrome. This rare syndrome is caused by hypoperfusion of the anterior spinal artery and to our knowledge has not been previously reported in patients with Behcet's disease. This report defines the characteristic clinical features of this entity and emphasizes the importance of early immunosuppressive treatment and initiation of rehabilitation.  (+info)

Vascular myelopathy (vascular disease of the spinal cord) refers to an abnormality of the spinal cord in regard to its blood supply. The blood supply is complicated and supplied by two major vessel groups: the posterior spinal arteries and the anterior spinal arteries-of which the Artery of Adamkiewicz is the largest. Both the posterior and anterior spinal arteries run the entire length of the spinal cord and receive anastomotic (conjoined) vessels in many places. The anterior spinal artery has a less efficient supply of blood and is therefore more susceptible to vascular disease. Whilst atherosclerosis of spinal arteries is rare, necrosis (death of tissue) in the anterior artery can be caused by disease in vessels originating from the segmental arteries such as atheroma (arterial wall swelling) or aortic dissection (a tear in the aorta). Anterior spinal artery syndrome is necrosis of tissue in the anterior spinal artery or its branches. It is characterised by pain which radiates at onset and ...
A dorsospinal artery from the aorta may supply the anterior spinal artery but it has been rarely reported. The dorsospinal artery has been reported three times, 1) on the right side at the T9 level, 2) once on the left at the T10 level, and 3) on the right side at the T8 level.. An isolated dorsospinal artery has been found to supply the anterior spinal artery in only two cases. In one of the cases, the anterior spinal artery had a dual blood supply. A recent angiographic study by Lefournier, et al. of patients undergoing spinal cord vascularization at the thoracolumbar level demonstrated a dual blood supply for the anterior spinal artery in 48% of patients studied, the lowest of the two supplying only the conus medullaris. A single supply was noted in 45% of patients, and three anterior radiculospinal arteries supplied the cord in 7% of patients studied. In one case, both radiculospinal arteries supplied the conus medullaris.. The anatomic variant arises when the anastomosis of segmental ...

Definition of spinal artery, anterior in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is spinal artery, anterior? Meaning of spinal artery, anterior as a legal term. What does spinal artery, anterior mean in law?
Approaches to endovascular treatment of dissecting aneurysms of the intracranial VA artery can be divided into deconstructive (involving occlusion or sacrifice of the parent artery) and reconstructive (preserving blood flow through the parent vessel). Deconstructive endovascular techniques include proximal occlusion of the parent artery with detachable coils and/or balloons and occlusion of the dissected segment of the vessel with coils and/or balloons. Deconstructive procedures alone can be sufficient if important branch vessels are not incorporated in the segment of the vessel to be occluded, and collateral blood flow to the remainder of the posterior circulation is adequate. However, the dissected segment cannot be occluded in patients with involvement of PICA and/or a dominant feeding pedicle to the anterior spinal artery in the dissected segment. The challenge also remains in those patients who are unable to tolerate parent vessel occlusion or cannot be monitored for vessel sacrifice ...
Skin wrinkles and sagging breasts. From the perspective of general health, the side sleep position is indeed a great choice. Side not only to keep the spine in the extended state, to reduce the call also has a certain effect! If you suffer from stomach acid reflux of torture, the side is supine sleeping position.

After an acute UMN-predominant SCI, initial development of the UMN syndrome is delayed by a process called spinal shock, whereby there is a transient suppression and gradual return of reflex activity below the level of injury. Ditunno et al.150 have proposed a four-phase model of spinal shock. During phase 1, occurring 0 to 24 hours postinjury, there is motor neuron hyperpolarization, manifesting clinically as hyporeflexia. During phase 2, occurring on days 1 to 3 postinjury, there is denervation supersensitivity and receptor upregulation, manifesting clinically with reflex return. During phase 3, occurring 1 to 4 weeks postinjury, there is interneuron synapse growth, manifesting clinically as early hyperreflexia. And finally, during phase 4, occurring 1 to 12 months postinjury, there is long axon synapse growth, manifesting clinically as late hyperreflexia.. Blood is supplied to the spinal cord through two posterior spinal arteries, a single anterior spinal artery, and several segmental ...
Another one bites the dust. Anterior Spinal Overgrowth is the Result of the Scoliotic Mechanism and is Located in the Disc. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the presence and magnitude of anterior spinal overgrowth in neuromuscular scoliosis and compare this to the same measurements in idiopathic scoliosis and healthy spines. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Anterior spinal overgrowth has been described as a potential driver for the onset and progression of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).
MR images of the thoracic spinal cord were made in 24 patients who developed signs and symptoms of spinal cord ischemia or infarction following surgery for a thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. Findings consisted primarily of four different patterns of signal abnormalities in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery. These abnormalities were identified as types A-D, depending on the degree of involvement of the gray matter and surrounding white matter. We found good correlation between the distribution of the signal abnormalities in the cord, the severity of the neurologic deficits, and the clinical outcome. MR is the imaging method of choice for diagnosing spinal cord ischemia or infarction. A thorough knowledge of the spinal cord arterial territories is crucial for characterizing ischemic MR signal abnormalities and for differentiating them from other causes of myelopathy. ...

Procedure: Anterior spinal exposure for thoracic spine procedure. Postoperative Diagnosis: Spinal cord compression by bulging disc T6-T7. Description
It might be worth having a second radiologist take a look at your MRI results (especially the films around your brain stem). Sometimes people have herniations of their brain stem (basically extra brain stem pushing out through the base of the skull and the start of the spine), which are called Arnold-Chiari Malformations (ACM). These can result in severe headaches, nausea, and definitely visual disturbances. A CT scan might better show this too, and sometimes an ACM will be so slight that it will go unnoticed on films. Check out www.chiaricare.com for more information and list of specialists. I will also mention that you could have an underlying condition of sleep apnea, which can severely raise blood pressure, damaging vessels and vascular walls, resulting in vision problems too. An angiography of the brain could also help show if there are any blood clots or vascular damage in the arteries of the brain.Best of luck to you & take care ...

Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome. (A Patient Information Service). Congenital anomalies are the product of errors in "embryogenesis" (malformations consequent to errors in the developmental stages of the embryo) or the result of intrauterine events that affect embryonic and fetal growth (deformations and disruptions). As a general rule, it is apparent that the more complex the formation of a structure, the more opportunities for malformation. Some of the most serious neurological abnormalities affect the Brain (conditions that are reviewed elsewhere on this website) develop in the first two months of gestation and represent defects in neural tube (the embryonic precursor of the entire central nervous system) formation. The medical term for this is "dysraphia". Some of these affect the Spine and the Spinal Cord as well.. Modern investigative methods, such as amniocentesis and ultrasonography may provide an accurate in utero detection of many malformations. Genetic counseling for parents of a child ...

The eponym "Ondines curse" in the medical literature usually refers to the failure of automatic respiratory drive with intact voluntary respiration. Ondine was a mythological water nymph who became human by falling in love with a mortal. The now-entrenched eponym is actually a misnomer, as Ondine has never cursed anyone. Patients affected by Ondines curse can have prolonged periods of apnea or hypopnea, particularly during sleep. They may require nocturnal mechanical ventilation but depending on the cause, this may be temporary. Infarction involving the medulla is one of the most common causes of Ondines curse. Other reported causes include loss of vagal and chemotactic input to the medullary carbon dioxide receptors, bulbar polio causing damage to the reticulospinal pathways, cervical cordotomy for pain control, and anterior spinal artery infarction..

A system and method for anterior fixation of the spine utilizes a cylindrical implant engaged in the intradiscal space at the cephalad and caudal ends of the construct. The implants are cylindrical fusion devices (10) filled with bone material to promote bone ingrowth and fusion of the disc space. An attachment member (40) is connected to each of the fusion devices (10) and bone screws (30) having similar attachment members (33) are engaged in the vertebral bodies of the intermediate vertebrae. A spinal rod (50) is connected to each of the attachment members using an eyebolt assembly (53, 54, 55). In a further inventive method, a revision of the construct is achieved by removing the fusion devices. Each fusion device is engaged by an elongated guide member (62) over which a cylindrical trephine (70) is advanced. The trephine (70) has an inner diameter larger than the diameter of the fusion implant and includes cutting teeth (72) for extracting a core (84) of bone material around the fusion implant. The
The posterior spinal cord contains longer perforating arteries that might be more susceptible to the effects of CADASIL vasculopathy. This explains the clinical (predominantly dorsal column involvement and motor deficit) and imaging features compared with those in the more common anterior spinal cord infarction (predominantly spinothalamic tract involvement and motor deficit). The stepwise progression could be explained by sequential involvement of perforating spinal cord arteries. Her clinical improvement is likely attributable to the combination of corticosteroid-responsive peri-ischaemic inflammatory changes and natural recovery.. Spinal cord involvement in CADASIL is well recognised but rare. In a UK cohort of 200 patients, there were no cases of spinal cord infarction.1 An anterior spinal cord infarct occurred in an Irish patient with probable CADASIL who had a history of severe migrainous headaches.7 A cervical spinal cord MRI study showed no abnormalities in 25 symptomatic CADASIL ...
Arnold-Chiari Malformation is an anatomic abnormality where the brain protrudes into the patients spinal cord. Contact our Louisville medical malpractice lawyers to see if you have a case.
The three main conditions to be considered in the differential diagnosis are: acute spinal cord trauma, acute compressive lesions of the spinal cord such as epidural metastatic tumour, and infarction of the spinal cord, usually due to insufficiency of the anterior spinal artery. Lyme disease serology is indicated in patients with transverse myelitis keeping in mind that dissociation in Lyme antibody titers between the blood and the CSF is possible.[5]. From the symptoms and signs, it may be very difficult to distinguish acute transverse myelitis from these conditions and it is almost invariably necessary to perform an emergency magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan or computerised tomographic (CT) myelogram. Before doing this, routine x-rays are taken of the entire spine, mainly to detect signs of metastatic disease of the vertebrae, that would imply direct extension into the epidural space and compression of the spinal cord. Often, such bony lesions are absent and it is only the MRI or CT that ...
The most common surgical procedure performed for Arnold-Chiari Malformation is known as posterior fossa decompression where the surgeon will remove a small portion of the bone behind the skull to make more room for the brain to expand an thus relieving the pressure from the brain. The surgeon may also remove a part of the spinal column to relieve pressure being put on the spinal cord. As is the case with all surgical procedures, there are inherent risks in this surgery as well to include risks of infection, accumulation of fluid in the brain, CSF leakage, and delayed wound healing. Almost all of the symptoms of Arnold-Chiari Malformation are relieved after successful completion of the surgery but in case of there is a nerve injury in the spinal cord then surgery may not be able to reverse the damage already done. Postprocedure, the patient will require regular checkups in the form of serial MRIs and other imaging tests to look at the status of the brain and spinal cord and check the status of ...
This is an area of particular interest for Neurosurgical Consultants with our experience encompassing over 200 successfully treated patients with this condition.. We now have experience with over 200 of these procedures with follow up ranging to 30 years. The operation that has been effective in our patients over these many years involves a Suboccipital Craniectomy (surgical opening of the bony compartment of the back of the head) to decompress the cerebellar tonsils with laminectomy of C1 and/or C2 (removal of the roof of the first two cervical vertebrae) to decompress the cervical spinal cord.. Introduction. This is a congenital anomaly of the cerebellum and brainstem. Although four types have been described, types I and II are more common. Type I is identified by excessive protrusion of cerebellar tonsils (the cerebellum is the balance and coordination center of the brain) through the foramen magnum (the passage way between the skull and the spinal canal through which the spinal cord travels ...
Tethered spinal cord syndrome is a neurological disorder caused by tissue attachments that limit the movement of the spinal cord within the spinal column. Attachments may occur congenitally at the base of the spinal cord (conus medullaris) or they may develop near the site of an injury to the spinal cord. These attachments cause an abnormal stretching of the spinal cord. The course of the disorder is progressive. In children, symptoms may include lesions, hairy patches, dimples, or fatty tumors on the lower back; foot and spinal deformities; weakness in the legs; low back pain; scoliosis; and incontinence. This type of tethered spinal cord syndrome appears to be the result of improper growth of the neural tube during fetal development, and is closely linked to spina bifida. Tethered spinal cord syndrome may go undiagnosed until adulthood, when pain, sensory and motor problems, and loss of bowel and bladder control emerge. This delayed presentation of symptoms is related to the degree of strain ...

Howdy. Mel from Mid-Michigan. I need some help/advice. I was an active healthy 70 year-old male. I have been fighting prostate cancer for 8 years but doing well with that. On March 6, while vacationing in Ca., I fell hard onto concrete, leading with my head. Initially, I lost all feeling in my arms and legs. Within a day I regained some feeling, but very little utility. Turns out I had severe spinal stenosis, and I now have center spinal cord syndrome. (Incomplete injury). I spent 9 days
Middle cerebral artery syndrome is a condition where the blood supply from the middle cerebral artery is restricted, leading to a reduction of the function of the portions of the brain supplied by that vessel.. Because this artery supplies much of the primary motor cortex, the cortical homunculus can be used to localize the defect more precisely.. ...
The first step after diagnosis is finding a neurosurgeon who is experienced in the treatment of syringomyelia. Surgery is the treatment for syringomyelia. Evaluation of the condition is necessary because syringomyelia can remain stationary for long periods of time, and in some cases progress rapidly.. Surgery of the spinal cord has certain characteristic risks associated with it, and the benefits of a surgical procedure on the spine have to be weighed against the possible complications associated with any procedure. Surgical treatment is aimed at correcting the condition that allowed the syrinx to form. It is vital to bear in mind that the drainage of a syrinx does not necessarily mean the elimination of the syrinx-related symptoms but rather is aimed at stopping progression. In cases involving an Arnold-Chiari malformation, the main goal of surgery is to provide more space for the cerebellum at the base of the skull and upper cervical spine without entering the brain or spinal cord. This often ...

Background: Cervical artery dissections (CAD) are a major cause of ischemic stroke, longstanding disability, and occasionally death in young adults. Several lines of evidence suggest genetic predisposition for CAD. Previous genetic studies were, however, inconclusive mainly due to insufficient numbers of patients. Our hypothesis is that CAD is a multifactorial disease caused by yet largely unidentified genetic variants and environmental factors, which may interact.. Aim: Our main aim is to look for genetic and environmental risk factors and gene-environment interactions potentially underlying CAD. In addition, therapeutic aspects are addressed in the setting of a multicenter registry.. Methods: We organized a multinational European network, CADISP (Cervical Artery Dissection and Ischemic Stroke Patients) which targets at increasing our knowledge on the pathophysiological mechanisms of this disease in a large, representative patient population. Within this network, we are aiming to perform a de ...
Abstract: A well-nourished teen-age girl with psychogenic vomiting demonstrated clinical and radiographic findings of SMAS. Her upper gastrointestinal radiographic studies were normal a few weeks before and three years after the study in which radiographic findings of SMAS were present. Psychologic factors should be considered in SMAS when no condition involving inanition, immobility, abdominal compression, or coexisting abdominal disturbance can be identified ...

Introduction: Cervical artery dissection is a common cause of stroke in young people. The temporal profile of stroke risk after cervical artery dissection remains uncertain.. Methods: We performed a crossover-cohort study using administrative claims data on all emergency department visits and acute care hospitalizations from 2005-2011 in California, 2006-2013 in New York, and 2005-2013 in Florida. Using previously validated ICD-9-CM codes, we identified patients with a cervical artery dissection and no prior or concurrent stroke diagnosis. Previously validated diagnosis codes were used to identify the primary outcome of ischemic stroke. We compared the risk of stroke in successive 2-week periods during the 12 weeks after dissection versus the corresponding 2-week period 1 year later. Absolute risks increases were calculated using a Mantel-Haenszel estimator for matched data. In a sensitivity analysis, we limited our population to only patients that presented with typical symptoms of cervical ...

Six patients with stable exertional angina pectoris immediately developed unstable angina after cessation of propranolol therapy. The character and frequency of the pain episodes were significantly worse than those that the patients had experienced either before or during propranolol treatment. Four patients had acute coronary events (myocardial infarction in three and sudden death in one) after 2 to 21 days of continuing unstable angina. Two patients returned to their usual clinical state when propranolol therapy was recommenced. All patients had moderately severe angina before treatment and had shown excellent clinical responses to propranolol therapy. In our experience propranolol withdrawal syndromes have been an uncommon problem that may occasionally be seen in patients discontinuing medication before coronary arteriography or surgery. ...
Arnold-Chiari Malformation (ACM) is a condition in which the cerebellum portion of the brain protrudes into the spinal canal. ACM is also referred to simply as chiari (pronounced Kee-AR-ee).
Dissections of the cervical arteries account for approximately 15-20 % of all strokes in young patients. Clinically they present with laterocervical and/or hemicranial pain associated to a Horner syndrome in case of carotid dissection and a posterior cervical pain associated to headache in the occipital area in case of vertebral dissection. A multifactorial origin is often suggested, resulting from the combination of a weakness of the arterial wall, hereditary or not, of environmental factors such minor trauma or a previous infection and also of the presence of a certain number of vascular risk factors such as high blood pressure or migraines ...

Scoliosis Research Society scores were obtained in 75% of the idiopathic scoliosis group (18/24). Pre-operative scores averaged 75.91 (53.0-94.0±13.9), and post-operative scores averaged 84.72 (70.0-94.6±7.6). A total of 93.8% were satisfied/very satisfied with their treatment, and 87.5% would probably/definitely have the same treatment again.. Discussion. Instrumented anterior spinal fusion allows excellent curve correction and greater correction of rotational deformity while preserving more distal motion segments compared to the posterior approach.2,8 On average one to three distal motion segments can be preserved which may reduce the risk of late degenerative changes caudal to the fusion."1. Other potential advantages of instrumented anterior spinal fusion include a reduced incidence of proximal junctional kyphosis, reduced implant prominence and denervation of posterior spinal extensor muscles, and reduced instrumentation costs.2,12 For these reasons anterior instrumented fusion has ...

I have been utterly overwhelmed by the public and private response to the Robert Lerose-conducted interview of me that appeared in Folks magazine here, which has already had over 160 shares from the Folks page alone (and climbing rapidly).. Ive also had scores of questions that have been asked of me about the 60+ surgical procedures Ive had through the years. Without putting my entire medical history online, let me just give a more detailed picture of the effects of Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS), and the intestinal by-pass surgery that was required in order to save my life. The "blind-loop" or so called "dumping" syndrome that can sometimes result from such a procedure has caused side effects that nobody could have quite predicted. Obviously, I do not regret having had the surgery; I would not be here today to talk about any of this, if I had not had the initial operation at age 14.. But to give a very brief summary of what this has led to, Ill provide a checklist:. o Chronic ...

The following question from our forum is from a man who is wondering if he is a good candidate for a tummy tuck operation. He had had prior surgeries which have left him with scars on his stomach.. Date: 06/22/2010 Submitted by: Lennon. Hi there…. Thank you for all the information on your website!. So here is the deal… I am a 28 year old male in need of some advice on abdominoplasty. I have had several back surgeries in the past 4 years, but now my back is in perfect shape. The last surgery was September of 2008, when I had Anterior Spinal Fusion at the L5/S1 level. Anterior, of course, meant that they went through the front. I now have a scar, horizontal, approximately. 6-7″ across my stomach above my hips on the left side. Before surgery, I had about 5-7 lbs. to lose in that area. I am not "fat", but rather, I have a very "flabby" gut that looks disgusting to me and I am sure to others. I am very self-conscious about it, and I would feel o much better about myself if I did not have such ...

Eating disorders are an important cause of physical and psychosocial disturbances. Gastrointestinal complications in eating disorders are common and include pancreatitis and superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS). However, only two patients who simultaneously suffered from both SMAS and pancreatitis in the setting of an eating disorder have ever been reported in the literature. We describe here a patient with eating disorder not otherwise specified (ED-NOS) who exhibited both SMAS and pancreatitis concomitantly. An 11-year-old boy with ED-NOS had presented with the sudden onset of recurrent bilious vomiting, abdominal distension and abdominal pain. Laboratory and imaging studies revealed that the patient had SMAS and acute pancreatitis. Gastric decompression and intravenous infusion of fluids promptly improved his abdominal symptoms and laboratory data. This is the first case report of a patient with ED-NOS who simultaneously suffered from SMAS and pancreatitis in the pediatric literature. Since
Diagnosis of Chiari Malformations is made through a combination of patient history, neurological examination and medical imaging. As for me, in my late teens/early 20s I found myself slowly being paralyzed down my entire left side. It was due to the spinal condition that I was born with; Arnold-Chiari Malformation. It is the Type II out of the four types Chiari Malformations. As is common with Chiari Malformations,I had also developed Syringomyelia; a progressive degenerative disorder characterised by formation of fluid filled cystsin the spinal cord.I couldnt have done anything, I had no one to blame, not even myself; it was a condition that I was born with. Due to escalating symptoms and dangers, I underwent a very risky surgery at the age of 23. What it did was fix the paralysis issue, but in addition, it also left some residual damage along my spine, but for many years the only notable symptoms I had were some minor balance issues; which meant that riding bikes or skiing were off-limits ...
