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)

Central cord syndrome is a type of incomplete spinal cord injury that primarily affects the central part of the spinal cord's long axis. It mainly occurs due to damage to the large myelinated nerve fibers in the central cord that carry information to and from the brain to the rest of the body.

The most common cause of central cord syndrome is trauma, particularly hyperextension injuries (where the head is pushed backward) or hyperflexion injuries (where the head is pushed forward) of the cervical spine (neck region). These movements can result in compression or stretching of the spinal cord, leading to damage.

The typical symptoms of central cord syndrome include:

1. Weakness or paralysis in the upper extremities (arms and hands) that is often more severe than in the lower extremities (legs).
2. Loss of sensation or numbness in the upper extremities, which can extend to the chest and abdomen.
3. Impaired bladder and bowel control due to disruption of nerve pathways responsible for these functions.
4. Variable degrees of autonomic dysfunction, such as changes in blood pressure, heart rate, or body temperature regulation.
5. In some cases, respiratory difficulties may occur if the injury is high enough in the cervical spine to affect the phrenic nerves that control the diaphragm.

Central cord syndrome can have a variable prognosis, with some individuals experiencing significant recovery over time, while others may have persistent neurological deficits. Treatment typically involves immobilization of the spine, followed by rehabilitation to help regain strength and function in affected areas.
