Transoral decompression for craniovertebral osseous anomalies: perioperative management dilemmas. (1/92)

The surgical outcome of 74 patients, who underwent transoral decompression (TOD) for ventral irreducible craniovertebral junction anomalies between January 1989 to September 1997, was studied to evaluate the perioperative complications and problems encountered. The indications for TOD included irreducible atlantoaxial dislocation (n=24), basilar invagination (n=16), and a combination of both (n=35). Following TOD, occipitocervical stabilization using Jain's technique was carried out in 50 (67.5%) and atlantoaxial fusion using Brooks' construct in 18 (24.3%) patients. The pre- and postoperative radiology was compared to assess the adequacy of decompression and stability. The major morbidity included pharyngeal wound sepsis leading to dehiscence (20.3%) and haemorrhage (4%), valopharyngeal insufficiency (8.1%), CSF leak (6.7%) and inadequate decompression (6.7%). Neurological deterioration occurred transiently in 17 (22.9%) and was sustained in 7 (9.4%) patients. The mortality in six cases was due to operative trauma, exanguination from pharyngeal wound (one each), postoperative instability and inability to be weaned off from the ventilator (two each). Of the 47 (63.5%) patients available at follow up ranging from 3 months to 2 years, 26 (55.3%) showed improvement from their preoperative status while 14 (29.8%) demonstrated stabilization of their neurological deficits. Seven (14.9%) of them deteriorated. Though TOD is logical and effective in relieving ventral compression due to craniovertebral junction anomalies, it carries the formidable risks of instability, incomplete decompression, neurological deterioration, CSF leak, infection and palatopharyngeal dysfunction.  (+info)

Bow hunter's stroke associated with atlantooccipital assimilation--case report. (2/92)

A 39-year-old male presented with bow hunter's stroke manifesting as repeated vertebrobasilar ischemic attacks induced by head rotation 45 degrees to the left. Three-dimensional computed tomography angiography clearly showed the occluded right vertebral artery (VA) between the axis and atlas. Single photon emission computed tomography study showed diffuse hypoperfusion of the brain stem and bilateral cerebellar hemispheres, suggesting hemodynamic compromise of these regions. He refused surgery and was treated conservatively. The most likely mechanism is that the affected VA was fixed by the ossification of the atlantooccipital membrane, vascular groove, and transverse foramen of the atlas, and therefore became elongated and compressed by head-turning.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of nonunited fractures of the odontoid process, with special reference to occipitocervical fusion for unreducible atlantoaxial subluxation or instability. (3/92)

Fifty-seven consecutive patients treated surgically for nonunited fractures of the odontoid process were reviewed. All patients presented late, exhibiting neurological deficits subsequent to nonunion. Delay in presentation was between 6 and 120 months (mean 32 months) after the original injury, due to missed diagnosis or inappropriate management. Seven patients who were reduced in traction underwent a Gallie atlantoaxial fusion. In the remaining 50 patients who were unreducible, an occipitocervical arthrodesis was performed. They were followed up for a minimum of 2 years, except one who died from postoperative respiratory failure. All patients obtained a solid bony union, including two in whom nonunion occurred following atlantoaxial fusion, and occipitocervical fusion was added as a rescue. Thirty-eight patients achieved excellent neurological recovery, nine still had some disability, five retained their neurological deficits and two reported a deterioration. In two patients, a recurrence in a traumatic episode was experienced long after a resolution. Our findings demonstrate that occipitocervical arthrodesis is preferable for unreducible subluxation or instability of atlantoaxial articulation in nonunion of odontoid fractures.  (+info)

Bilateral type 1 proatlantal arteries with absence of vertebral arteries. (4/92)

The persistent proatlantal artery is a well-described communication between the carotid and vertebrobasilar system. However, persistence of bilateral proatlantal arteries is exceptionally rare. Although usually noted as an incidental finding, the presence of a proatlantal artery, particularly when bilateral, may result in unusual symptoms or may have implications for therapy. We report a case of bilateral proatlantal arteries, describe their embryology, and consider potential clinical implications of this finding.  (+info)

Hindbrain stroke in children caused by extracranial vertebral artery trauma. (5/92)

Hindbrain transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) culminating in posterior circulation stroke are described in five children. Atlanto-axial subluxation and angiographical documentation of C1 to C2 level arterial pathology are documented in one patient. Four additional patients with nearly identical clinical presentations, posterior fossa TIAs, stroke and basilar angiographical pathology are reviewed. A mechanical traumatic etiology is suggested. Unexplained transient repeated brain stem and/or cerebellar sympotomatology may be due to extracranial vetebral artery stenosis or occlusion by atlanto-axial instability. After appropriate documentation, stabilization may prevent further TIAs or strokes.  (+info)

Recognition and management of atlanto-occipital dislocation: improving survival from an often fatal condition. (6/92)

OBJECTIVE: To provide an overview of atlanto-occipital dislocation and associated occipital condyle fracturcs so as to alert physicians to this rare injury and potentially improve patient outcome. The pertinent anatomy, mechanism of injury, clinical and radiologic evaluation and the management of these rare injuries are discussed in an attempt to alert physicians to this type of injury and to improve outcome. DATA SOURCES: The data were obtained from a MEDLINE search of the English literature from 1966 to 1999 and the experience of 4 spine surgeons at a quaternary care acute spinal cord injury unit. STUDY SELECTION: Detailed anatomic and epidemiologically sound radiology studies were identified and analyzed. Only small retrospective studies or case series were available in the literature. DATA EXTRACTION: Valid anatomic, biomechanical and radiologic evaluation was extracted from studies. Clinical data came from limited studies and expert opinion. DATA SYNTHESIS: Early diagnosis is essential and is facilitated by a detailed clinical examination and strict adherence to an imaging algorithm that includes CT and MRI scanning. When the dislocation is identified, timely gentle reduction and prompt stabilization throuigh nonoperative or operative means is found to optimize patient outcome. CONCLUSIONS: Atlanto-occipital dislocation should be suspected in any patient involved in a high speed motor vehicle or pedestrian collision. Once suspected, proper imaging and appropriate management of these once fatal injuries can improve survival and neurologic outcome.  (+info)

Skeletal aspects of the atlanto-occipital fusion in a Japanese brown calf. (7/92)

Atlanto-occipital fusion in a Japanese Brown calf was examined morphologically, paying special attention to skeletal changes. At the craniovertebral junction, the basal occipital bone fused to the cranial extremity of the ventral arch of the atlas with the rudiment of the atlantal centrum. The dens was not formed at the axis. These changes suggest that a hypocentrum and a centrum of the atlas derived from the first cervical sclerotome had failed to separate the occipital base from the proatlantal sclerotome including the apical element of the dens. Although a developmental disturbance at the cervical and thoracic vertebrae was also associated, critical neurological signs such as ataxia and paralysis were absent.  (+info)

Traumatic posterior atlantooccipital dislocation with Jefferson fracture and fracture-dislocation of C6-C7: a case report with survival. (8/92)

Atlantooccipital dislocation (AOD) is a rare and usually fatal injury. In the current study, the authors reported an extremely rare case of posterior AOD with Jefferson fracture and fracture-dislocation of C6-C7. The patient survived the injury and had only incomplete quadriplegia below the C7 segment with anterior cord syndrome. He was successfully managed with in situ occipitocervical fusion using the Cotrel-Dubousset rod system, corpectomy of C6, and anterior interbody fusion of C5-C7 with plating. To our knowledge, this is the first report of posterior AOD with two other non-contiguous cervical spine injuries. A high index of suspicion and careful examination of the upper cervical spine should be considered as the key to the diagnosis of AOD in cases that involve multiple or lower cervical spine injuries.  (+info)

What happens during an injection?. A local anesthetic will be used to numb your skin. The doctor will then insert a thin needle directly into the atlanto-occipital joint. Fluoroscopy, a type of x-ray, must be used to ensure the safe and proper position of the needle. A dye may also be injected to make sure the needle is at the correct spot.. When the doctor is sure the needle is at the correct place, the anesthetic and steroid will be injected.. What happens after an AO injection?. You will be monitored for up to 30 minutes after the injection. When you are ready to leave, the staff will give you discharge instructions and a pain diary. It is important to fill out the pain diary because it helps your doctor know how the injection is working..

The posterior atlantooccipital membrane (posterior atlantooccipital ligament) is a broad but thin membrane. It is connected above to the posterior margin of the foramen magnum and below to the upper border of the posterior arch of the atlas. On each side of this membrane there is a defect above the groove for the vertebral artery which serves as an opening for the entrance of the artery. The suboccipital nerve also passes through this defect. The free border of the membrane arches over the artery and nerve and is sometimes ossified. The membrane is deep to the Recti capitis posteriores minores and Obliqui capitis superiores and is superficial to the dura mater of the vertebral canal to which it is closely associated. In 2015, Scali et al. revisited the anatomy of the posterior atlantooccipital membrane via plastination. Their findings revealed that the PAO membrane superiorly consisted of periosteum of the occiput, whereas inferiorly it formed part of the dura at the cerebrospinal junction, ...
Posterior occipitocervical fixation and fusion are often required to address occipitocervical instability. Safe, stable internal fixation with screws is vital for the success of such surgery. Thus, poor selection of an internal fixation technique may cause fixation and fusion failure, possibly leading to neurovascular injury. Hence, in certain cases, such as in patients with severe instability of an occipitocervical deformity or osteoporosis, we hypothesized that having a third anchor point (a screw in C2) could enhance the stability of the occipitocervical fixation. A 31-year-old man with occipitocervical deformity and spinal cord edema underwent a traditional occipitocervical fixation procedure but with the addition of a spinous process screw in C2 as a third anchor point. The procedure included posterior internal fixation and fusion. The occipitocervical fixation was completed by inserting occipital screws, bilateral C2 pedicle screws, C3 lateral mass screws, and a spinous process screw in C2 as a

The rectus capitis posterior major (or rectus capitis posticus major, both being Latin for larger posterior straight muscle of the head) arises by a pointed tendon from the spinous process of the axis, and, becoming broader as it ascends, is inserted into the lateral part of the inferior nuchal line of the occipital bone and the surface of the bone immediately below the line.. A soft tissue connection bridging from the rectus capitis posterior major to the cervical dura mater was described in 2011. Various clinical manifestations may be linked to this anatomical relationship.[1] It has also been postulated that this connection serves as a monitor of dural tension along with the rectus capitis posterior minor and the obliquus capitis inferior.. As the muscles of the two sides pass upward and lateralward, they leave between them a triangular space, in which the rectus capitis posterior minor is seen.. Its main actions are to extend and rotate the atlanto-occipital joint.. ...
Lets begin with a little coding and documentation background. According to the American Medical Association, chiropractic manipulative treatment (CMT) is a form of manual treatment to influence joint and neurophysiological function. The CMT codes include a pre-manipulation patient assessment. Additional evaluation and management (E/M) services may be reported separately using modifier 25, if the patients condition requires a separate E/M service, above and beyond the usual pre-service and post-service. The E/M service may be caused or prompted by the same symptoms or condition for which the CMT service was provided. As such, different diagnoses are not required for the reporting of the CMT and E/M service on the same date.. For purposes of CMT, the five spinal regions referred to are: cervical region (includes atlanto-occipital joint); thoracic region (includes costovertebral and costotransverse joints); lumbar region; sacral region; and pelvic (sacro-iliac joint) region.. ...
Tracheal intubation is generally considered the best method for airway management under a wide variety of circumstances, as it provides the most reliable means of oxygenation and ventilation and the greatest degree of protection against regurgitation and pulmonary aspiration.[2] However, tracheal intubation requires a great deal of clinical experience to master[81] and serious complications may result even when properly performed.[82]. Four anatomic features must be present for orotracheal intubation to be straightforward: adequate mouth opening (full range of motion of the temporomandibular joint), sufficient pharyngeal space (determined by examining the back of the mouth), sufficient submandibular space (distance between the thyroid cartilage and the chin, the space into which the tongue must be displaced in order for the larygoscopist to view the glottis), and adequate extension of the cervical spine at the atlanto-occipital joint. If any of these variables is in any way compromised, ...

In the previous studies, the stroke mechanism of patients with infarction aged below 50 years was reported [1]-[3]. According to the Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOAST) classification of stroke mechanism, the proportion of other determined etiology in young-age stroke is rather high: large-artery atherosclerosis, 11%, cardioembolism, 24%, small-artery occlusion, 8%, stroke of other determined etiology, 27%, and stroke of undetermined etiology, 29% [3]. Vertebral arterial injuries associated with structural osseous anomaly, one of other determined etiology, have been reported [4],[5].. Anomalous occipital bony process may be a byproduct of fusion abnormalities [6]-[8]. The incidence of anomaly of atlanto-occipital fusion that could cause compression of the vertebral artery varies between 0.5% and 1.0% [6],[7]. The symptoms may be headache, neck pain, numbness, and weakness in the limbs, or cranial nerve dysfunction including tinnitus, visual disturbance, dysphagia, or dysarthria ...
A method and system for thermal-dynamic modeling and performance evaluation of a nuclear Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) core design is presented. A data processing system is used to execute specific program routines that simultaneously simulate the thermal operating characteristics of fuel rods within the reactor during a transient operational condition. The method employs a multi-dimensional approach for the simulation of postulated operational events or an anticipated operational occurrence (AOO) which produces a transient condition in the reactor-such as might be caused by single operator error or equipment malfunction. Based on a generic transient bias and uncertainty in the change in critical power ratio (ΔCPR/ICPR), histograms of fuel rod critical power ratio (CPR) are generated. Ultimately, the operating limit minimum critical power ratio (OLMCPR) of the reactor is evaluated from a histogram of probability calculations representing the number of fuel rods subject to a boiling transition (NRSBT)
The unilateral transection of the cerebellar peduncles was performed on 29 rats (Table 1). In these animals the atlanto-occipital membrane was exposed and excised, and the cerebellar peduncles of one side was cut by inserting a microknife into the fourth ventricle underneath the cerebellum. These animals belong to an experimental set described in a previous study to which it can be referred for details about the surgical procedures and the evaluation of lesion extent (Buffo et al., 1998).. The Purkinje cell axonal transport was blocked in vivo by injecting a colchicine solution into the cerebellar parenchyma of uninjured rats. These animals were placed on a stereotaxic frame, the occipital bone was exposed, and a hole was drilled in the superior aspect to expose the cerebellar vermis. A total of 4 μg of either colchicine (n = 17, Table 1) or β-lumicolchicine, as a control (n = 4, Table 1), diluted in 1 μl of saline solution was pressure-injected 1 mm deep within the cerebellar parenchyma ...

Neck pain is a common complaint. The prevalence is approximately between 75% and 80% in the U.S. population. Fortunately, acute neck pain has a very favorable prognosis, with 80% of cases resolved within 2 years.1 But 20% of cases are estimated not to improve and of these, 5% are characterized by severe disabling chronic neck pain.2 The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) describes chronic cervical spine pain as follows: Pain perceived as arising from anywhere within the region bounded superiorly by the superior nuchal line, inferiorly by an imaginary transverse line through the tip of the first thoracic spinous process, and laterally by sagittal planes tangential to the lateral borders of the neck.3 The potential sources of neck pain are derived from those structures that have abundant nociceptive innervation, which include the cervical zygapophysial (facet) joints (including atlantoaxial and atlanto-occipital), posterior neck muscles, cervical intervertebral discs, vertebral ...
Objective: Despite the development of atraumatic microsurgical techniques and skull base approaches, tumors of the craniocervical junction still pose a major challenge. Due to the highly vulnerable vascular and neural structures, they are often only subtotally resected. They may represent an indication for adjuvant radiosurgery.. Methods: Between July 1992 and September 2001, 12 patients with a mean age of 48 years (range 15-68) received a postoperative radiosurgical treatment with the Gamma Knife. Nine patients had meningiomas, two had hemangioblastomas and one suffered from a chordoma. The median tumor volume was 3.8 ccm (range 0.79-15.6 ccm). Follow-up time ranged from 36-120 months (median 64). The tumor borders were covered with volume curves on the 45-60% isodose and received a marginal dosis of 12-15 Gy.. Results: Follow-up MR images revealed tumor shrinkage in 7 cases, constant volume in 3 cases and increased tumor size in 2 patients. Neurological examination showed improved status in 6 ...

The important thing for all of us, is to get our raised intra-cranial pressure down, one way or another and, if cranio-cervical instability is playing a part (i.e. if you are a stretchy type EDS person) you may need to stabilise the cranio-cervical joint with a good supporting collar (like a Philadelphia - NOT a soft collar as this does not support the head), when youre doing anything that involves a lot of head movement.

Whether this is a significant amount or not, I dont know but one would think that this would reduce overall volume and help relieve symptoms.. Im only just starting out using this, so time will tell. If anyone has had any measure of success with this it would be nice to hear ...

2. When you keep twirling the hair, rotating the base of the braids, while still in extensions. This phenomenon is common at the front edge area of the hair. If you notice most ladies in box braids with attachment, you will see that the hair has rotated, so that it has a cylindrical shape. The continuous rotation stresses the edges, and eventually causes it to break away. When you play with your hair, whether your twists/braids are in extensions or not, you stress the hair too, and the already fragile thing just gets tired, and runs away from your head ...

BACKGROUND: The osteo-dural decompression of the cerebellar tonsils at the cranio-cervical junction is generally considered the most effective treatment for syringomyelia-Chiari I complex. However much controversy concerning a great number of surgical adjuvants to the standard bony decompression is still present. In this work an extra-arachnoidal cranio-cervical decompression (CCD) without duroplasty is described and the surgical results are reported. METHOD: Between 2000 and 2005, 24 adult patients underwent surgery for symptomatic syringomyelia-Chiari I complex not associated with hydrocephalus. In all cases, the surgical procedure consisted of a limited suboccipital craniectomy and laminectomy of C1 (when necessary C2 as well) followed by dural opening leaving the arachnoid membrane intact. The dura mater is left open and stitched laterally to the muscles. FINDINGS: With a mean clinical long term follow-up of 44 months (range, 12-78 mo), neurological disturbances improved in 21 of 24 patients ...
Background: Chiari-like malformation (CM) and syringomyelia (SM) are widely reported in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Griffon Bruxellois dogs. Increasing evidence indicates that CM and SM also occur in other small and toy breed dogs, such as Chihuahuas.. Objectives: To describe the presence of SM and craniocervical junction (CCJ) abnormalities in Chihuahuas and to evaluate the possible association of CCJ abnormalities with SM. To describe CM/SM-related clinical signs and neurologic deficits and to investigate the association of CM/SM-related clinical signs with signalment, SM, or CCJ abnormalities. Animals: Fifty-three client-owned Chihuahuas.. Methods: Prospective study. Questionnaire analyses and physical and neurologic examinations were obtained before magnetic resonance and computed tomography imaging. Images were evaluated for the presence of SM, CM, and atlantooccipital overlapping. Additionally, medullary kinking, dorsal spinal cord compression, and their sum indices were calculated. ...

SUMMARY Percutaneous ultrasound guidance has become a routine procedure in veterinary medicine in domestic animals. It allows precise placement of the needle in the desired target. Punctures of the subarachnoid space in dogs are frequently carried out in veterinary practice for diagnostic purposes. In these procedures, the placement of the needle into the subarachnoid space (atlanto-occipital or lumbar) is commonly performed blindly by feeling the bony anatomical landmarks but this can be laborious or even impossible in some patients as reported in human medicine. The topic of this study is ultrasound guidance for the placement of the needle during puncture of the subarachnoid space. The needle placement can be done under ultrasound guidance according to two ...
Craniovertebral junction surgery is complex, is anatomical, is biomechanical, is philosophical and needs highest degree of technical expertise and experience. Whilst successful surgery may produce remarkable clinical results and may be compatible with good and new life, any complication can be devastating for the patient and for the family. The advances in surgery in this region have been a result of improvement in radiological investigations and improved understanding of the biomechanics of the region. From decompressive anterior transoral surgery and foramen magnum posterior decompression, the focus is now on stabilization and craniovertebral junctional realignment. A number of techniques have recently been proposed that have wide implications for treatment and provide hope and opportunity for the unfortunate patients who harbor these problems. Craniovertebral junction is amongst the most rapidly evolving subject. Newer understanding is making this subject remarkably result oriented. The ...

Objective To reveal the factors that determine the natural course of subluxation of occipital-cervical lesions in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The atlanto-axial region is one of the most common locations for lesions in RA. Some cases progress from reducible atlanto-axial subluxation (AAS) to irreducible vertical migration, while others continue to exhibit reducible AAS. No study has revealed the factors that determine the natural course of subluxation. We focus on the odontoid as a key structure of the progression of occipito-cervical lesions and investigated this region in patients with RA using reconstructive computed tomography (CT) images, and analyzed factors in association with CT findings. ...

To examine the impact of occiput posterior position, compared to occiput anterior position, on neonatal outcomes in a setting where delayed pushing is practiced. The specific aim was to estimate the risk of acidaemia. Cohort study from a university hospital in Sweden between 2004 and 2012. Information was collected from a local database of 35,546 births. Umbilical artery sampling was routine. Outcomes were: umbilical artery pH | 7.00 and |7.10 and short-term neonatal morbidity. The association between occiput posterior position and neonatal outcomes was examined using logistic regression analysis, presented as adjusted odds ratio (AOR) with 95% confidence interval (CI). Of 27,648 attempted vaginal births, 1292 (4.7%) had occiput posterior position. Compared with occiput anterior, there was no difference in pH | 7.00 (0.4% vs. 0.5%) but a higher rate of pH | 7.10 in occiput posterior births (3.8 vs. 5.5%). Logistic regression analysis showed no increased risk of pH | 7.10 (AOR 1.28 95% CI 0.93-1.74) when
Neurochirurgie guidée par limage - Presentation du Pr Emmanuel Mandonnet au Collège de France - 27 mai 2014 Au cours de cet exposé, nous analyserons comment différents modèles biomathématiques de lévolution des gliomes intracérébraux et de leur interaction avec le fonctionnement cérébral peuvent - ou pourront dans un futur proche - aider le neurochirurgien aux différentes étapes de la prise en charge du patient. En pré-opératoire, le modèle de croissance tumorale de prolifération-diffusion, alimenté par les IRM consécutives dun patient, permet de déterminer la cinétique de croissance individuelle, élément fondamental dans la prise de décision opératoire.

Tone Reservation (TR) is one of the common algorithms proposed for peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction in next generation American digital video broadcasting (ATSC 3.0) transmitters. Recently, a quasi-optimal TR technique with a novel kernel definition named as grouped individual carrier multiple peaks (GICMP) scheme has been proposed. In GICMP, firstly, the reserved tones are partitioned into G groups, which also equals to the number of iterations. Then, a comb-like kernel is constructed with each group and it is adjusted to cancel a given set of peaks of data signal at each iteration. This scheme not only offers good performance/complexity trade-off but also compatible with ATSC 3.0 standard. Based on same kernel definition, we have proposed a new method, named as grouped carrier peak windowing (GCPW), which requires less hardware resources, compared to GICMP. Instead of choosing a set of peaks, this new method introduces a peak window to consider a given number of signal samples that exceed
