(From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp1750-1)Nerve Compression Syndromes: Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.Spinal Cord Neoplasms: Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA.

The sacrum strengthens and stabilizes the PELVIS.Spinal Nerve Roots: Paired bundles of NERVE FIBERS entering and leaving the SPINAL CORD at each segment. The dorsal and ventral nerve roots join to form the mixed segmental spinal nerves. The dorsal roots are generally afferent, formed by the central projections of the spinal (dorsal root) ganglia sensory cells, and the ventral roots are efferent, comprising the axons of spinal motor and PREGANGLIONIC AUTONOMIC FIBERS.Ependymoma: Glioma derived from EPENDYMOGLIAL CELLS that tend to present as malignant intracranial tumors in children and as benign intraspinal neoplasms in adults. It may arise from any level of the ventricular system or central canal of the spinal cord. Intracranial ependymomas most frequently originate in the FOURTH VENTRICLE and histologically are densely cellular tumors which may contain ependymal tubules and perivascular pseudorosettes. Spinal ependymomas are usually benign papillary or myxopapillary tumors.

Clinical manifestations include radicular pain, weakness, and sensory loss referable to structures innervated by the involved nerve root.Electrodiagnosis: Diagnosis of disease states by recording the spontaneous electrical activity of tissues or organs or by the response to stimulation of electrically excitable tissue.Spinal DiseasesLumbosacral Region: Region of the back including the LUMBAR VERTEBRAE, SACRUM, and nearby structures.Neurilemmoma: A neoplasm that arises from SCHWANN CELLS of the cranial, peripheral, and autonomic nerves. Clinically, these tumors may present as a cranial neuropathy, abdominal or soft tissue mass, intracranial lesion, or with spinal cord compression. Histologically, these tumors are encapsulated, highly vascular, and composed of a homogenous pattern of biphasic fusiform-shaped cells that may have a palisaded appearance. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp964-5)Dura Mater: The outermost of the three MENINGES, a fibrous membrane of connective tissue that covers the brain and the spinal cord.Meningocele: A congenital or acquired protrusion of the meninges, unaccompanied by neural tissue, through a bony defect in the skull or vertebral column.Paraganglioma: A neural crest tumor usually derived from the chromoreceptor tissue of a paraganglion, such as the carotid body, or medulla of the adrenal gland (usually called a chromaffinoma or pheochromocytoma).

The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Urinary Bladder, Neurogenic: Dysfunction of the URINARY BLADDER due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of URINATION. This is often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, but may also be caused by BRAIN DISEASES or PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES.Sperm Maturation: The maturing process of SPERMATOZOA after leaving the testicular SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES. Maturation in SPERM MOTILITY and FERTILITY takes place in the EPIDIDYMIS as the sperm migrate from caput epididymis to cauda epididymis.Hyperostosis, Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal: A disease of elderly men characterized by large osteophytes that bridge vertebrae and ossification of ligaments and tendon insertions.Replantation: Restoration of an organ or other structure to its original site.Ligamentum Flavum: The paired bands of yellow elastic tissue that connect adjoining laminae of the vertebrae. With the laminae, it forms the posterior wall of the spinal canal and helps hold the body erect.Synovial Cyst: Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance.

It consists histologically of rounded or ovoid hyperchromatic cells that tend to be grouped in an alveolus-like pattern within a scant to moderate amount of fibrous stroma and a few large thin-walled vascular channels. (From Stedman, 27th ed)Arachnoiditis: Acute or chronic inflammation of the arachnoid membrane of the meninges most often involving the spinal cord or base of the brain. This term generally refers to a persistent inflammatory process characterized by thickening of the ARACHNOID membrane and dural adhesions. Associated conditions include prior surgery, infections, trauma, SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, and chemical irritation. Clinical features vary with the site of inflammation, but include cranial neuropathies, radiculopathies, and myelopathies. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch48, p25)Hemangioblastoma: A benign tumor of the nervous system that may occur sporadically or in association with VON HIPPEL-LINDAU DISEASE. It accounts for approximately 2% of intracranial tumors, arising most frequently in the cerebellar hemispheres and vermis. Histologically, the tumors are composed of multiple capillary and sinusoidal channels lined with endothelial cells and clusters of lipid-laden pseudoxanthoma cells. Usually solitary, these tumors can be multiple and may also occur in the brain stem, spinal cord, retina, and supratentorial compartment. Cerebellar hemangioblastomas usually present in the third decade with INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION, and ataxia. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2071-2)Spinal NeoplasmsParesthesia: Subjective cutaneous sensations (e.g., cold, warmth, tingling, pressure, etc.) that are experienced spontaneously in the absence of stimulation.Urination Disorders: Abnormalities in the process of URINE voiding, including bladder control, frequency of URINATION, as well as the volume and composition of URINE.Spinal Cord: A cylindrical column of tissue that lies within the vertebral canal.

The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.Back Pain: Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.Chronic Pain: Aching sensation that persists for more than a few months. It may or may not be associated with trauma or disease, and may persist after the initial injury has healed. Its localization, character, and timing are more vague than with acute pain.Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity: A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood.

Cauda equina syndrome in ankylosing spondylitis: a report of six cases. (1/196)

Six patients with ankylosing spondylitis and features of a cauda equina syndrome are described. The myelographic findings are discussed in relation to the pathogenesis of the disorder and its natural history. Present experience suggests that the cauda equina syndrome is a more common complication of ankylosing spondylitis than is usually thought.  (+info)

MR imaging of Dejerine-Sottas disease. (2/196)

We report the MR findings in two patients with clinically and histologically proved Dejerine-Sottas disease. One patient had spinal involvement with multiple thickened and clumped nerve roots of the cauda equina; the second had multiple enlarged and enhancing cranial nerves. Although these findings are not specific for Dejerine-Sottas disease, they are suggestive of the diagnosis, which is further corroborated with history and confirmed with sural nerve biopsy and laboratory studies.  (+info)

Lumbar spinal subdural hematoma following craniotomy--case report. (3/196)

A 52-year-old female complained of lumbago and weakness in the lower extremities 6 days after craniotomy for clipping an aneurysm. Neurological examination revealed symptoms consistent with lumbosacral cauda equina compression. The symptoms affecting the lower extremities spontaneously disappeared within 3 days. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging 10 days after the operation demonstrated a lumbar spinal subdural hematoma (SSH). She had no risk factor for bleeding at this site, the symptoms appeared after she began to walk, and MR imaging suggested the SSH was subacute. Therefore, the SSH was probably due to downward movement of blood from the cranial subdural space under the influence of gravity. SSH as a complication of cranial surgery is rare, but should be considered if a patient develops symptoms consistent with a lumbar SSH after craniotomy.  (+info)

Sclerosing spinal pachymeningitis. A complication of intrathecal administration of Depo-Medrol for multiple sclerosis. (4/196)

Reported complications of intrathecal steroid therapy include aseptic meningitis, infectious meningitis, and arachnoiditis. We report a case of sclerosing spinal pachymeningitis complicating the attempted intrathecal administration of Depo-Medrol for multiple sclerosis. The lesion is characterised by concentric laminar proliferation of neomembranes within the subdural space of the entire spinal cord and cauda equina, resulting from repeated episodes of injury and repair to the spinal dura mater by Depo-Medrol. There is clinical and laboratory evidence that Depo-Medrol produces meningeal irritation and that the vehicle is the necrotising fraction.  (+info)

Intravascular lymphomatosis presenting as an ascending cauda equina: conus medullaris syndrome: remission after biweekly CHOP therapy. (5/196)

A 63 year old man developed dysaesthesia in the legs followed by a subacute ascending flaccid paraparesis with sacral sensory and autonomic involvement. Intravascular lymphomatosis (IVL) was favoured by the presence of low grade fever and raised serum C reactive protein, CSF pleocytosis, raised lymphoma markers (serum LDH, soluble IL-2 receptor), and steroid responsiveness. Only muscle, among several organ biopsies, confirmed IVL. A cytogenetic study of the bone marrow showed chromosome 6 monosomy, as previously reported. The monosomy of chromosome 19, which bears the intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1, newly found in this case, may be related to the unique tumour embolisation of IVL. The CHOP regimen (six courses in 12 weeks) using granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) led to gradual resolution of myeloradiculopathy and laboratory supported remission lasting for more than 13 months. The biweekly CHOP with G-CSF support may be a choice of chemotherapy in averting rapidly fatal IVL.  (+info)

Nutritional supply to the cauda equina in lumbar adhesive arachnoiditis in rats. (6/196)

Laminectomy-induced cauda equina adhesion has been proved by rat experiments and postoperative serial MRI in humans. A degenerative change of the cauda equina has been proved when cauda equina adhesion has been prolonged. Since it has not been reported how the nutritional supply is changed in such a condition, we evaluated the glucose supply to the adhered cauda equina in rats. Wistar rats were divided into the following three groups: the control group which received no operation, the laminectomy group which underwent L5-L6 laminectomy only, and the koalin group which received 5 mg of kaolin on the dorsal extradural space following L5-L6 laminectomy. Based on 3H-methyl-glucose uptake study, we analyzed (1) glucose transport from the intraneural vessels to the nerve tissue, and (2) glucose transport from the cerebrospinal fluid to the nerve tissue. We evaluated the relation between the severity of cauda equina adhesion and 3H uptake into the cauda equina. Cauda equina adhesion was observed in 2 of 12 rats in the control group, in 3 of 12 rats in the laminectomy group, and in 18 of 20 rats in the kaolin group. In the 3H-methyl-glucose uptake study, at 12 weeks the glucose transport to the cauda equina from the vessels increased by 44%, and that from the cerebrospinal fluid decreased by 64% in the kaolin group compared with the control group. In the condition of complete cauda equina adhesion, the glucose transport to the cauda equina from the vessels increased by 53% and that from the cerebrospinal fluid remarkably decreased by 72% compared with the normal cauda equina. Considering the greater nutritional importance of the cerebrospinal fluid in the cauda equina, it is most likely that the impairment of nutritional supply to adhered cauda equina may lead to eventual neural degeneration.  (+info)

Predictors of outcome in cauda equina syndrome. (7/196)

This retrospective review examined the cause, level of pathology, onset of symptoms, time taken to treatment, and outcome of 19 patients with cauda equina syndrome (CES). The minimum time to follow up was 22 months. Logistical regression analysis was used to determine how these factors influenced the eventual outcome. Out of 19 patients, 14 had satisfactory recovery at 2 years post-decompression; 5 patients were left with some residual dysfunction. The mean time to decompression in the group with a satisfactory outcome was 14 h (range 6-24 h) whilst that of the group with the poor outcome was 30 h (range 20-72 h). There was a clear correlation between delayed decompression and a poor outcome (P = 0.023). Saddle hypoaesthesia was evident in all patients. In addition complete perineal anaesthesia was evident in 7/19 patients, 5 of whom developed a poor outcome. Bladder dysfunction was observed in 19/19 patients, with 12/19 regarded as having significant impairment. Of the five patients identified as having a poor overall outcome, all five presented with a significant sphincter disturbance and 4/5 were left with residual sphincter dysfunction. There was a clear correlation between the presence of complete perineal anaesthesia and significant sphincter dysfunction as both univariate and multivariate predictors of a poor overall outcome. The association between a slower onset of CES and a more favourable outcome did not reach statistical significance (P = 0.052). No correlation could be found between initial motor function loss, bilateral sciatica, level or cause of injury as predictors of a poor outcome (P>0.05). CES can be diagnosed early by judicious physical examination, with particular attention to perineal sensation and a history of urinary dysfunction. The most important factors identified in this series as predictors of a favourable outcome in CES were early diagnosis and early decompression.  (+info)

The appearance on MRI of vertebrae in acute compression of the spinal cord due to metastases. (8/196)

We studied MR images of the spine in a consecutive series of 100 patients with acute compression of the spinal cord due to metastases. All patients had documented neurological deficit and histologically proven carcinoma. MRI was used to localise bony metastatic involvement and soft-tissue impingement of the cord. A systematic method of documenting metastatic involvement is described. A total of 43 patients had compression at multiple levels; 160 vertebral levels were studied. In 120 vertebrae (75%), anterior, lateral and posterior bony elements were involved. Soft-tissue impingement of the spinal cord often involved more than one quadrant of its circumference. In 69 vertebrae (43%) there was concomitant anterior and posterior compression. Isolated involvement of a vertebral body was observed in only six vertebrae (3.8%). We have shown that in most cases of acute compression of the spinal cord due to metastases there is coexisting involvement of both anterior and posterior structures.  (+info)

The cauda equina conveys sensory fibres from the sacral dermatomes, motor nerve fibres innervating lower sacral myotome skeletal muscles, and sacral parasympathetic fibres.11 Thus in patients with cauda equina lesions the finding of pronounced sexual dysfunction, perineal sensory deficit, and EMG abnormalities is not unexpected.11. Cell bodies of motor and sacral parasympathetic neurones reside within the Onuf and intermediolateral nuclei of the conus medullaris, respectively, and these also receive input from afferent sacral nerve fibres. The effects of lesions to the cauda equina and the conus medullaris are, as a result, similar and it is difficult to distinguish between them clinically. In particular, on multiple linear regression analysis our patients with spinal fractures-most of whom had L1 fractures-probably had at least some involvement of the conus medullaris (with or without root damage). We consider conus medullaris lesions improbable in patients with disc herniations, which in all ...

N2 - Study Design. Case report. Objectives. To present a rare case of a giant schwannoma of the cauda equina. Summary of Background Data. Giant spinal schwannoma of the cauda equina, which involves many nerve roots, is rare and there is usually no ossification in the schwannoma. It is unknown whether or not complete excision is preferable if the tumor is located in the lumbar lesion. Methods. A 57-year-old woman had a 10-year history of low back pain. Scalloping of the posterior surface of the vertebral bodies from L3 to the sacrum was found. Magnetic resonance imaging disclosed a giant cauda equina tumor with multiple cysts. Central ossification revealed by computed tomography and an unusual myelogram made the preoperative diagnosis difficult. Results. The patient underwent incomplete removal of the ...
Claire Thornber, founder of CESA was also there. She runs the support services and travels around the country trying to bring hope and support to all those suffering with CES. It is so great to have the founder on hand to pick her brains about Cauda Equina. She is the most knowledgeable person I know about our condition. When you attend a meeting make sure you have a conversation with her because I know from personal experience how valuable her help can be. She is so lovely and doesnt get embarrassed talking about anything from bladders to sexual dysfunction. Shes great.. In summation, I believe that anyone who has suffered Cauda Equina would benefit from coming to meetings. The main point of the support group is for people with CES to see they are not alone. I suggest that you join the CES map (if you havent already) and get in touch with those in your area, who also have Cauda Equina and try to come to a meeting together..

A man with long-standing, inactive rheumatoid spondylitis developed the syndrome of a cauda equina lesion. Myelography was negative. Similar case reports from outside the United States were discovered and are reviewed. We speculate that this neurologic complication of rheumatoid spondylitis is either a late sequel of an arachnoiditis or a result of ischemia. ...
The cauda equina is a structure within the lower end of the spinal column of most vertebrates, that consists of nerve roots and rootlets from above. Cauda equina is sometimes considered as an extension of the pia mater of the spinal cord. The space in which the cerebro spinal fluid is present is actually an extension of the sub arachnoid space. In humans, because the spinal cord stops growing in infancy while the bones of the spine continue growing, the spinal cord in adults ends at about the level of the vertebra L1/L2 , and at birth at L3. However there is some variation in adults and the cord may end anywhere between vertebrae T12 to L3. Individual spinal nerve roots arise from the spinal cord as they do closer to the head, but as the differential growth occurs the top end of the nerve stays attached to the spinal cord and the lower end of the nerve exits the spinal column at its proper level, this results in a "bundle"-like structure of nerve fibres that extends caudally from the end of the ...

At the base of the spinal column, near the first lumbar vertebra, is a collection of nerves called the cauda equina . They are called this because they resemble a horses tail. Just above the cauda equina, the spinal cord ends and it continues on as this collection of spinal
Cauda equina syndrome is a serious spinal condition that may lead permanent nerve damage if it is not treated immediately. Typical signs and symptoms of cauda equina syndrome include low back pain, sciatica, loss of sensorimotor in the lower limbs, bowel and bladder dysfunction, urinary retention, saddle paresthesia of the perineum, pain, numbness and weakness in both lower limbs. Direct mechanical compression, venous congestion and ischemia are the possible causes of nerve root damage in the lumbar spine. Lumbar disc herniation, trauma and vertebral metastasis are the common causes that lead to secondary spinal canal stenosis and compression of the cauda equina. MRI of the lumbar spine can identify the source and location of the compression of the cauda equina ...

TREATMENT. Surgery. The role of surgery for Filum Terminale Ependymomas depends on the size of the tumor and its relationship to the surrounding roots of the Cauda Equina. We strongly favor Minimally Invasive Microsurgical with Gross Total Resection when possible. Complete surgical resection can be accomplished with small and moderate-sized tumors that remain well circumscribed within the fibrous coverings of the Filum Terminale and are separable from the Nerve Roots of the Cauda Equina. Large tumors can present significant problems for surgical resection. These tumors have been present for many years and present a risk for spread through the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF). Filum Terminale Ependymomas that are large and adherent to many Nerve Roots can make total removal difficult to impossible without considerable damage to the Nerve Roots to which they are densely adherent.. ...
Degenerative Lumbosacral Stenosis). Cauda equina syndrome (degenerative lumbosacral stenosis) is caused by compression of the nerve roots (cauda equina) coursing through the lumbosacral spinal canal in the lower back. Nerve root entrapment and pressure can result from an arthritic process, infection, a degenerative disc rupture, or tumors. Most dogs affected by lumbosacral degeneration are middle aged or older large, athletic breeds. Continue reading Cauda Equina Syndrome. ...
Bruce developed chronic lower back pain in December 2014, having experienced intermittent discomfort over the previous four years.. For most of his working life, Bruce was a labourer and painter. He loved his work, but spent large amounts of time in awkward positions that placed considerable strain on his lower back.. Bruce sought medical advice for his back pain and a CT image showed degenerative changes to the lower part of his spine. This included pressure on the exiting nerves at the L5/S1 vertebrae and a disc protrusion causing spinal canal narrowing at the L4/5 vertebrae.. In March 2015, Bruce went to his GP after his condition worsened considerably. His pain had increased and he was now experiencing lower limb weakness and reduced mobility. Before he could see a spinal specialist, Bruce was taken by ambulance to the local emergency department.. After admission, Bruce had an MRI of the lumbar area of his spine that showed complete compression of the thecal sac and cauda equina nerve roots. ...
Lumbar thrust joint manipulations appear to be even safer than cervical manipulation. With lumbar manipulation, the greatest complication is cauda equina syndrome. Cauda equina syndrome is damage to the cauda equina causing widespread neurological compromise, urinary retention, and fecal incontinence. In an editorial by Tim Flynn titled, "Move it and move on" he estimated the post-lumbar manipulation risk was 1 in 6 million. An interesting article by Childs et al in 2006 found that there was a greater risk by withholding lumbar manipulation in patients with low back pain (4). In the study there was greater risk to the patient by NOT perform spinal manipulation. The study also found that even individuals who did not meet the clinical prediction rule for spinal manipulation did not have increased disability ...

The filum terminale is like a thin elastic band, about 8 inches long. At the top, it is formed from one of the layers of tissue surrounding your spinal cord, and extends from the bottom of your spinal cord to the tip of your tail bone. The outside of the "elastic band" has a few nerve fibres sticking to it.. The filum terminale works as an anchor for the spinal cord. For people with normal anatomy, the filum stretches when they bend over to allow the spinal cord to move up in the spinal column and then goes back to normal length when the person straightens up and gently pulls the spinal cord back to its normal position.. When the filum is fat-filled, fibrous and tight, it will not allow the spinal cord to move up and down within the spinal column, and so the spinal cord and the nerves end up being stretched instead of the filum. In most people this causes nerve damage".. Everybody has a filum terminale; it is a threadlike piece of tissue that connects the end of the spinal cord to the sacral end ...

Disc herniations are shown at the the L3-4 and L4-5 levels. Both herniations protrude into the spinal canal and compress the cauda equina (cauda equina syndrome).
Hes had a good life, but not a great life. Several years ago, he was diagnosed with Cauda Equina Syndrome (Horse Tail Syndrome) where the spinal canal narrows over time, pressing down on the spinal cord causing damage and chronic pain. Hes been on pain killers for most of those years and has been quite well.. But (and Im leaving out a lot of details...) in August, Batty began coming to us at night as we slept, waking me up by panting heavily into my face. Id get up, give him a small dose of pain killer (vets advice) and go back to sleep. That worked fairly well, but the condition worsened. Within a few weeks, the pain killers were not helping him. The condition continued to get worse until I spent whole nights; from 1am till the sun came up; calming him down and trying to make him comfortable. We thought it was all related to the Cauda Equina. We were wrong.. I despise it when a pre-existing illness/disease makes it difficult to realise that theres a separate serious problem going ...

A 49-year-old self-employed business owner with a long history of back pain was referred to Dr A, a spinal surgeon. The patient had undergone three discectomy procedures over the course of the previous two years, which had not resolved his pain.. Dr A carried out a revision decompression at the L5/S1 level, posterior lumbar interbody fusion at L5/S1 and an instrumented fusion from L4 to S1. Following the surgery the patient continued to suffer with pain. Dr A diagnosed pseudoarthrosis at the level of L4/5 and carried out further surgery with revision of the fusion and insertion of a cage at the L4/5 level. Unfortunately, the patient developed a leak of spinal fluid, which led to a further two revision procedures by Dr A. The patient brought a claim against Dr A and the hospital. He alleged that the first revision procedure was substandard and caused the spinal fluid leak, which was not properly repaired. He also alleged that he was discharged from hospital too soon after the second revision ...
Cory was depressed and even hesitated for a few moments before deciding to eat his chow Wednesday morning and so I decided to see if St. Johns Wort could help. I bought it in pill form, 300 mgs per pill. I gave him his first pill with his Wednesday evening meal, and within 30 minutes I could see that he had his sparkle back. He brought a toy to me and wanted to play. Since then, I have been giving him one pill in the morning and one in the evening, and to my delight it is continuing to help him. When I got home last night I took him outside to walk around in our yard. He was slow but willing, bless his heart. I have a call in to the lady that runs the hydrotherapy spa to request that if she gets any cancellations between now and April 29th, (Corys first scheduled session), to call me so I can get him in sooner. I am concerned because he doesnt seem to move about during the day (when we are at work), and his hind-end muscles are getting weak to the point of shaking while he is standing. A ...

Postoperative pain is a major concern in routine management of children admitted to pediatric intensive care treatment. There are significant negative physiological and psychological ramifications of postoperative pain such as impairment of cardiac function due to tachycardia, restlessness in an intubated patient requiring increase dosage of sedative and paralytic drugs and reduced patient cooperation in the healing process.. The main body of evidence dealing with gender differences in pain perception and treatment stems from studies in the adult and adolescent population as the gonadal hormones have a central role in the way one experiences pain The hypothesis of this study is that there is a difference in the perception of pain, the amount of analgesia used and the response to pain medication between male and female infants undergoing craniosynostosis repair or untethering of cord. ...
Definition of cauda in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is cauda? Meaning of cauda as a legal term. What does cauda mean in law?
The good news is that the spinal cord ends around the first Lumbar Vertebrae, which gives us more space for low back movement. Movement is more in the low back as there are no ribs. A horsetail like cluster of nerves hang down from the spinal cord at L1, and exit along the lumbar vertebrae as it descends down into the sacrum. This is called the Cauda Equina. The S1 nerve root exits between the 5th lumbar vertebrae and the first segment of the sacral bone. As little as 10 mm of pressure can activate, and inflame a sensory nerve from the dorsal root exiting the spine, causing altered sensation down the back of the leg. If there is more intense compression in the area where the nerve exits the spine from a disc, or stenosis caused by arthritis, it can influence the motor nerve of S1. The motor component of S1 nerve comes off the ventral root of the spinal cord ; and if this nerve gets really compressed it can cause your foot to not be able to point down and plantar flex. A motor nerve can tolerate ...

A previously healthy 39-year-old woman presented with 3 weeks of progressive leg numbness. Examination showed mild bilateral iliopsoas weakness and patchy leg numbness. She was admitted, and spinal MRI revealed T2 enhancing thoracic lesions, nonenhancing cervical cord lesions (figure, A), and subtle pial and cauda equina enhancement (figure, B). Brain MRI revealed multiple periventricular T2 hyperintensities (figure, C). Since the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) was considered likely, lumbar puncture (LP) was deferred and she received 5 days of IV methylprednisolone. One week later, she developed increasing right-sided hearing loss and vertigo with right cochlear enhancement (figure, D). Two weeks later, a morbilliform and vesicular flank and trunk rash appeared (figure, E and F). She was readmitted and treated with IV acyclovir for presumed disseminated varicella zoster virus (VZV). LP revealed a lymphocytic pleocytosis (90 leukocytes, 100% lymphocytes) and elevated protein (150 mg/dL). ...
River Jordan is the cerebral spinal fluid (nerve fluid) or marrow of the spinal cord which rises in the medulla Oblongata and ends at the Cauda Equina, a thick, salty, sticky fluid, that the Hebrew called the "Dead Sea." Synonyms of "Water of Jordon" are: Christ (oil/ointment). "Breath of Life" breathed into man- therefore, the "Holy (whole) Ghost". In Greek, John is IOHN or Soul, which means in Greek "the fluids of the body"..

Cauda equina syndrome is a surgical emergency. Persons should seek immediate medical care or go to the emergency department if they believe they have symptoms of cauda equina syndrome. Some of the early symptoms related to cauda equina syndrome, including low back pain and muscle weakness, are more often caused by simple disk herniation, which does not require urgent attention.

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 cauda equina syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that occur when some of the nerves in the cauda equina (the bundle of nerves that spread out from the bottom of the spinal cord) become compressed and/or damaged. signs and symptoms of this condition include pain, numbness, or tingling in the lower back and/or legs; "foot drop"; problems with bowel and/or bladder control; and sexual dysfunction. cauda equina syndrome may be caused by a herniated disk, tumor, infection, fracture, or spinal stenosis. treatment usually targets the underlying cause of the condition and often includes surgery to remove the material that is pressing on the nerves. physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or other services may be required if symptoms persist following surgery. last updated: 5/17/2015 ...
Lysis of epidural adhesion has been done in patients with refractory lumbar radiculopathies. Cauda equina syndrome is a rare complication of epidural block. We report a case of cauda equina syndrome following epidural adhesiolysis in a patient with spinal stenosis. She complained of numbness in perineum, weakness of left leg, voiding difficulty, and fecal incontinence. She was finally recovered 1 month after the procedure without any sequelae following treatment with medication, bladder training and physical therapy. We suggest the causative factors are osmotic damage produced by subarachnoid injection of large doses of hypertonic saline and the temporary neural compression due to spinal stenosis. ...
Persistent cauda equina syndrome after caudal epidural injection under severe spinal stenosis: a case report Young Tak Seo,1 Hyun Ho Kong,1 Goo Joo Lee,1 Heui Je Bang1,2 1Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Chungbuk National University Hospital, 2Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, College of Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, Republic of Korea Abstract: Caudal epidural injection (CEI) is one of the most common treatments for low-back pain with sciatica. CEI rarely leads to neurologic complications. We report a case of persistent cauda equina syndrome after CEI.

Abstract: Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) is a rare progressive syndrome of pain and neurological deficits below the waist caused by massive central lumbar disc prolapse. The most common clinical presentation is highly variable with multifocal mixed polyradicular deficits. Loss of bladder and/or bowel control can be subtle and is frequently not the patient chief complaint. These symptoms must be aggressively sought by the assessing physician. While delays of a few hours in the diagnosis and management may not be deleterious, definitive lumbar MRI imaging and (if positive) surgical care referral are emergent ...

N2 - We report a very rare case of granulocytic sarcoma (GS) with muscle and peripheral nerve extension but without bone marrow involvement. A 53-year-old woman presented with sciatic pain and diplopia. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed bilateral orbital and cauda equina region tumors. The blood cell count, and bone marrow histology and cytology were normal. The characteristic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cytologic picture of CD14+, CD33+, CD4+, CD56+ and positive nonspecific erastase staining suggested the diagnosis of GS. The patient underwent intrathecal and systemic chemotherapy, as if she had acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This case emphasizes the value of CSF cytological examination and the use of ...

The most common cause of cauda equina syndrome is a large midline disk herniation, usually at L4-5 or L5-S1 interspaces. Other causes include spinal metastases, spinal hematoma, epidural abscess, vertebral fracture, or transverse myelitis.1,2 Although anal sphincter tone is decreased in up to 80% of patients, an elevated postvoid residual is the most consistent finding to make the diagnosis.3 A postvoid residual of more than 100 to 200 mL of urine is 90% sensitive and 95% specific for the diagnosis in patients suspected of cauda equina syndrome.4 The diagnosis is confirmed by an emergent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Treatment consists of high-dose IV steroids (recommendations range from 4 to 100 mg of ...

Dural ectasia is widening or ballooning of the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord. This usually occurs in the lumbosacral region, as this is where the cerebrospinal fluid pressure is greatest, but the spinal canal can be affected in any plane. Most common symptoms include lower back pain, headaches, weakness, numbness (anesthesia) above and below the involved limb, leg pain, and sometimes there can be rectal and genital pain. Bowel and bladder dysfunction, urinary retention or even incontinence may occur. The symptoms are usually exacerbated by upright posture and often but not always relieved by lying down. However, in many patients it is asymptomatic. Present in the MARFAN SYNDROME It is common in Marfan syndrome, occurring in 63-92% of people with the syndrome. Dural ectasia may also occur in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, neurofibromatosis type I, ankylosing spondylitis, and trauma. Liu, CC; Lin, YC; Lo, CP; Chang, TP (June 2011).

Introduction: Spinal Subdural hematoma is a rare cause of radiculopathy and spinal cord compression syndromes. Its early diagnosis is essential. Chronological appearance of these bleeds vary on MRI. Case Report: A 56 year old man presented with progressive left lower limb radiculopathy and paraesthesias with claudication of three days duration. MRI revealed a subdural space occupying lesion compressing the cauda equina at L5-S1 level producing a Y shaped dural sac (Y sign), which was hyperintense on T1W imaging and hypointense to cord on T2W image. The STIR sequence showed hyperintensity to cord. There was no history of bleeding diathesis. The patient underwent decompressive durotomy and biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis. Conclusion: Spinal subdural hematoma may present with rapidly progressive neurological symptoms. MRI is the investigation of choice. The knowledge of MRI appearance with respect to the chronological stage of the bleed is essential to avoid diagnostic and hence surgical dilemma
