A syndrome associated with traumatic injury to the cervical or upper thoracic regions of the spinal cord characterized by weakness in the arms with relative sparing of the legs and variable sensory loss. This condition is associated with ischemia, hemorrhage, or necrosis involving the central portions of the spinal cord. Corticospinal fibers destined for the legs are spared due to their more external location in the spinal cord. This clinical pattern may emerge during recovery from spinal shock. Deficits may be transient or permanent.

The long-term outcome after central cord syndrome: a study of the natural history. (1/6)

We studied 32 patients with central cord syndrome who were managed conservatively. Six were under 50 years of age (group 1), 16 between 50 and 70 years (group 2) and ten over 70 years (group 3). At the time of discharge all patients in group 1 could walk independently and had good bladder control compared with 11 (69%) and 14 (88%) in group 2 and four (40%) and two (20%) in group 3, respectively. At follow-up after a mean of 8.6 years (4 to 15), ten patients had died leaving 22 in the study. All those in group 1 were alive, could walk independently and had bladder control. In group 2, 13 were alive of whom ten (77%) could walk independently and nine (69%) had bladder control. In group 3 only three were alive of whom only one was independent and none had bladder control. Function at discharge as measured by the ASIA motor scoring system was usually maintained or improved at follow-up, but patients over 70 years of age at injury did poorly.  (+info)

Injury to the spinal cord without radiological abnormality (SCIWORA) in adults. (2/6)

Injury to the spinal cord without radiological abnormality often occurs in the skeletally immature cervical and thoracic spine. We describe four adult patients with this diagnosis involving the cervical spine with resultant quadriparesis. The relevant literature is reviewed. The implications for initial management of the injury, the role of MRI and the need for a high index of suspicion are highlighted.  (+info)

Incidence and outcomes of spinal cord injury clinical syndromes. (3/6)

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: To examine and compare demographics and functional outcomes for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) clinical syndromes, including central cord (CCS), Brown-Sequard (BSS), anterior cord (ACS), posterior cord (PCS), cauda equina (CES), and conus medullaris (CMS). DESIGN: Retrospective review. SETTING: Tertiary care, level 1 trauma center inpatient rehabilitation unit. PARTICIPANTS: Eight hundred thirty-nine consecutive admissions with acute SCIs. MAIN OUTCOMES MEASURES: Functional independence measure (FIM), FIM subgroups (motor, self-care, sphincter control), length of stay (LOS), and discharge disposition. RESULTS: One hundred seventy-five patients (20.9%) were diagnosed with SCI clinical syndromes. CCS was the most common (44.0%), followed by CES (25.1%) and BSS (17.1%). Significant differences (P < or = 0.01) were found between groups with regard to age, race, etiology, total admission FIM, motor admission FIM, self-care admission and discharge FIM, and LOS. Statistical analysis between tetraplegic BSS and CCS revealed significant differences (P < or = 0.01) with respect to age (39.7 vs 53.2 years) and a trend toward significance (P < or = 0.05) with regard to self-care admission and discharge FIM. No significant differences (P < or = 0.01) were found when comparing CMS to CES. CONCLUSIONS: SCI clinical syndromes represent a significant proportion of admissions to acute SCI rehabilitation, with CCS presenting most commonly and representing the oldest age group with the lowest admission functional level of all SCI clinical syndromes. Patients with cervical BSS seem to achieve higher functional improvement by discharge compared with patients with CCS. Patients with CMS and CES exhibit similar functional outcomes. Patients with ACS and PCS show functional gains with inpatient rehabilitation, with patients with ACS displaying the longest LOS of the SCI clinical syndromes. These findings have important implications for the overall management and outcome of patients with SCI.  (+info)

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

In order to investigate the pathophysiology of the tethered cord syndrome, a few experimental models have been developed and used previously. In this study, the authors present a new experimental model to investigate the biochemical, electrophysiological, and histopathological changes in the tethered spinal cord syndrome. A model was produced in guinea pigs using an application of cyanoacrylate to fixate the filum terminale and the surrounding tissue to the dorsal aspect of the sacrum following 5-gram stretching of the spinal cord. The experiments were performed on 40 animals divided into two groups. The responses to tethering were evaluated with hypoxanthine and lipid peroxidation, somatosensory and motor evoked potentials, and transmission electron microscope examination. The hypoxanthine and lipid peroxidation levels significantly increased, indicating an ischemic injury (p < 0.01). The average hypoxanthine level in the control group was 478.8 +/- 68.8 nmol/g wet tissue, while ii, was 651.2 ...
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 ...

Tethered cord syndrome, a condition where tissue attachments limit the movement of the spinal cord within the spinal column, is associated with impaired glucose metabolism in spinal cord tissue,[14] changes in the reduction/oxidation ratio of cytochrome oxidase.[15] and reduced ATP production.[9] People with tethered cord syndrome have reduced blood flow to the spinal cord.[16]. A study of energy cost of walking in adolescents with tethered cord, as measured by oxygen uptake (VO2), found that energy cost per metre during walking at preferred speed and physical strain were higher than in peers without disability.[17]. Traction on the caudal cord results in decreased blood flow causing metabolic derangements that culminate in motor, sensory, and urinary neurological deficits. The untethering operation restores blood flow and reverses the clinical picture in most symptomatic cases.[18]. In a study of five children undergoing surgery for tethered cord syndrome group, spinal cord blood flow prior ...
Unfortunately, with this type of injury, there is only a 10-20% chance of muscle recovery. Treatment typically involves medication to help with pain, rest, and sometimes surgery. Instead, there is a focus on supportive care, which helps patients to find a way to go about their daily life. Supportive care can include occupational therapy, physical therapy, recreational therapy, and speech therapy. The goal is to create some improvement in mobility, range of motion, and restoring their daily activities ...
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

Tethered spinal cord syndrome appears to be the result of improper growth of the neural tube during foetal development, and is closely linked to spina bifida. Tethering may also develop after spinal cord injury and scar tissue can block the flow of fluids around the spinal cord. Fluid ...
Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) is a diverse clinical entity characterized by symptoms and signs which are caused by excessive tension on the spinal cord. The majority of cases are related to spinal dysraphism. TCS can present in any age group, and presentations differ according to the underlying pathologic condition and age, with pain, cutaneous signs, orthopedic deformities and neurological deficits being the most common. Surgical untethering is indicated in patients with progressive or new onset symptomatology attributable to TCS. The surgical strategy aims to release the tethering structure and thus the chronic tension on the cord. Early operative intervention is associated with improved outcomes. Pain relief is accomplished in almost all cases. Realistic surgical goals include relief of pain and stabilization of neurological function, although improvement in function is often seen. Cord untethering can also halt the progression of scoliosis. The benefits of surgery are debated in asymptomatic ...
Radiographic findings must always be taken in context with the clinical symptoms when making the diagnosis of TCS, but a number of different imaging modalities may be utilized to help with evaluation and surgical planning.. Scoliosis films may be used to detect progression in the cobb angle as a symptom of tethered cord syndrome.. A plain spine x-ray can be helpful to detect spina bifida occulta.. MRI is the current gold standard for diagnosis. The images usually show a low-lying cord below the level of L1-2 and a thickened filum terminale with a diameter greater than 2mm.5 Some authors have also recommended proceeding to prone MRI in cases of high suspicion with negative supine MRI findings. It is postulated that a tethered cord will be identified in a more posterior position using this technique. However, even using this technique, sensitivity may be as low as 62% and interrater reliability as low as 69%.5. If the patient has had previous surgery for a spinal dysraphism, the area of scar will ...

Late 1980s and 1990s - description of normal level of conus in infants: Using sonography, Robbin et al. (23) refuted the idea of ascension during childhood and posited that by approximately 19 weeks gestation, the conus should have achieved its adult position. Wilson and Prince (38) concluded that a conus positioned at L2-L3 should be considered normal at any age. DiPietro (4) added to these data, showing that children younger than 2 months of age had a mean conus termination at the lower third of the L1 vertebral body, whereas children between the ages of 1 and 4 years had a mean conus termination at the upper third of the L1 vertebral body, and furthermore that the conus of children between the ages of 4 and 13 years was located at the upper third of the L1 vertebral body. Their study (4) also concluded that criteria for the determination of conus level should be age-dependent. Another sonography study (23) found that the conus was located above the L2 vertebral level in 92.1% of term babies, ...

The team decided on ICD placement even though the procedure would be challenging due to the congenital anatomical anomaly. A bilateral upper-extremity venogram performed prior to the procedure demonstrated the presence of PLSVC with absent RSVC (Figure 4). Due to the absent RSVC, ICD access was attempted through the left subclavian vein rather than from the right. Unfortunately, an ICD lead could not be placed into a suitable position in the right ventricular apex. After much difficulty, a lead was positioned in the septal aspect of the right ventricular outflow tract but could not demonstrate acceptable sensing and pacing thresholds. Thus, the procedure was aborted and the patient was referred for subcutaneous ICD placement, which was completed without complications.. DISCUSSION. PLSVC is a rare congenital abnormality that is found in about 0.3% of the general population. Its incidence increases by 10- to 30-fold in patients with congenital heart disease.1-3.

A prolapsed (slipped) disc is when the squishy innards of the disc (nucleus pulposus) bulge out past the stiffer wall of the disc (annulus fibrosis). The problem is that sometimes when this happens, the bulge can impinge the spinal cord or the spinal nerve root. This could result in an anterior cord syndrome (remember this doodle) or it could just knock out the nerve root, resulting in a specific radiculopathy (check out this doodle for where to check for numbness and weakness).. The tricky thing to remember is that though, for example, the L3 root exits at L3, if the L3,4 disc herniates, it doesnt hit the L3 root but the L4.. Slipped L3,4 disc = L4 nerve injury. The disc hits the nerve after it has branched off the spinal cord, but before it has exited the vertebral canal.. ...
The spinal cord normally hangs loose inside the spinal canal. Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) is rare, but no one knows exactly how prevalent it is because it commonly goes undiagnosed. In adults, the spinal cord will stretch during the course of normal activity which like bending and stretching. The neurological surgeon makes an incision in the lower back to expose the site where the spinal cord is pinned, then frees it by releasing the stuck portion of the cord. Tethered cord syndrome is a rare neurological condition. If you are a physician or if you know of a physician who should be added to our resource list, please use our Physician Enrollment Form.

Osteomesopyknosis is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by osteosclerosis of the axial skeleton. Its radiological abnormalities consist of increased density of the vertebral plates, pelvis, and sometimes of the upper part of the femurs. It is usually discovered incidentally on radiographic examination, is a mild form of familial osteosclerosis and must be distinguished from osteopetrosis which carries a worse prognosis. A marked increase uptake may be found on bone scintigraphy. Microscopic examination of bone shows an increase of trabecular thickness, and a low rate of bone turnover.

Methods In the present study, we report the clinical and molecular delineation of a new form of syndromic autosomal recessive spondylometaphyseal dysplasia (SMD) in two Emirati first cousins. They displayed postnatal growth deficiency causing profound limb shortening with proximal and distal segments involvement, narrow chest, radiological abnormalities involving the spine, pelvis and metaphyses, corneal clouding and intellectual disability. Whole genome homozygosity mapping localised the genetic cause to 11q12.1-q13.1, a region spanning 19.32 Mb with ~490 genes. Using whole exome sequencing, we identified four novel homozygous variants within the shared block of homozygosity. Pathogenic variants in genes involved in phospholipid metabolism, such as PLCB4 and PCYT1A, are known to cause bone dysplasia with or without eye anomalies, which led us to select PLCB3 as a strong candidate. This gene encodes phospholipase C β 3, an enzyme that converts phosphatidylinositol 4,5 bisphosphate (PIP2) to ...
Methods In the present study, we report the clinical and molecular delineation of a new form of syndromic autosomal recessive spondylometaphyseal dysplasia (SMD) in two Emirati first cousins. They displayed postnatal growth deficiency causing profound limb shortening with proximal and distal segments involvement, narrow chest, radiological abnormalities involving the spine, pelvis and metaphyses, corneal clouding and intellectual disability. Whole genome homozygosity mapping localised the genetic cause to 11q12.1-q13.1, a region spanning 19.32 Mb with ~490 genes. Using whole exome sequencing, we identified four novel homozygous variants within the shared block of homozygosity.

Spina Bifida Occulta: A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)
