A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic properties used in the therapy of rheumatism and arthritis.
Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.
Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.
Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.

Segmental spinal dysgenesis: neuroradiologic findings with clinical and embryologic correlation. (1/56)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Segmental spinal dysgenesis (SSD) is a rare congenital abnormality in which a segment of the spine and spinal cord fails to develop properly. Our goal was to investigate the neuroradiologic features of this condition in order to correlate our findings with the degree of residual spinal cord function, and to provide insight into the embryologic origin of this disorder. We also aimed to clarify the relationship between SSD and other entities, such as multiple vertebral segmentation defects, congenital vertebral displacement, and caudal regression syndrome (CRS). METHODS: The records of patients treated at our institutions for congenital spinal anomalies were reviewed, and 10 cases were found to satisfy the inclusion criteria for SSD. Plain radiographs were available for review in all cases. MR imaging was performed in eight patients, one of whom also underwent conventional myelography. Two other patients underwent only conventional myelography. RESULTS: Segmental vertebral anomalies involved the thoracolumbar, lumbar, or lumbosacral spine. The spinal cord at the level of the abnormality was thinned or even indiscernible, and a bulky, low-lying cord segment was present caudad to the focal abnormality in most cases. Closed spinal dysraphisms were associated in five cases, and partial sacrococcygeal agenesis in three. Renal anomalies were detected in four cases, and dextrocardia in one; all patients had a neurogenic bladder. CONCLUSION: SSD is an autonomous entity with characteristic clinical and neuroradiologic features; however, SSD and CRS probably represent two faces of a single spectrum of segmental malformations of the spine and spinal cord. The neuroradiologic picture depends on the severity of the malformation and on its segmental level along the longitudinal embryonic axis. The severity of the morphologic derangement correlates with residual spinal cord function and with severity of the clinical deficit.  (+info)

Clinical and radiological differences between traumatic and idiopathic coccygodynia. (2/56)

Several reports of coccygodynia have been confined to the causes, the methods of treatment, and the methods of radiological examination. As far as we know, there has been no previous study about the objective measurement of the coccyx. The purpose of this study was to find the possible cause of idiopathic coccygodynia by comparing the clinical and radiological differences between traumatic and idiopathic coccygodynia by innovative objective clinical and radiological measurements. Thirty-two patients with coccygodynia were evaluated retrospectively. We divided the patients into two groups. Group 1 consisted of 19 patients with traumatic coccygodynia and group 2 consisted of 13 patients with idiopathic coccygodynia. We reviewed medical records and checked age, sex distribution, symptoms, and treatment outcome in each group. We also reviewed coccyx AP and lateral views of plain radiological film and measured the number of coccyx segments and the intercoccygeal angle in each group. The intercoccygeal angle devised by the authors was defined as the angle between the first and last segment of the coccyx. We also checked the intercoccygeal angle in a normal control group, which consisted of 18 women and 2 men, to observe the reference value of the intercoccygeal angle. The outcome of treatment was assessed by a visual analogue scale based on the pain score. Statistical analysis was done with Mann-Whitney U test and Chi-square test. Group 1 consisted of 1 male and 18 female patients, while group 2 consisted of 2 male and 11 female patients. There were no statistically significant differences between the traumatic and idiopathic coccygodynia groups in terms of age (38.7 years versus 36.5 years), male/female sex ratio (1/18 versus 2/11), and the number of coccyx segments (2.9 versus 2.7). There were significant differences between the traumatic and idiopathic coccygodynia groups in terms of the pain score (pain on sitting: 82 versus 47, pain on defecation: 39 versus 87), the intercoccygeal angle (47.9 degree versus 72.2 degrees), and the satisfactory outcome of conservative treatment (47.4% versus 92.3%). The reference value of the intercoccygeal angle in the normal control group was 52.3 degrees, which was significantly different from that of the idiopathic group. In conclusion, the intercoccygeal angle of the idiopathic coccygodynia group was greater than that of the traumatic group and normal control group. Based on the results of this study, the increased intercoccygeal angle can be considered a possible cause of idiopathic coccygodynia. The intercoccygeal angle was a useful radiological measurement to evaluate the forward angulation deformity of the coccyx.  (+info)

Mesh repair of a coccygeal hernia via an abdominal approach. (3/56)

We report on the presentation and management of a patient with herniation of the rectum following a coccygectomy. We used an abdominal approach and careful pelvic dissection to define the defect in the pelvic floor at the site where coccyx used to be. Prolene mesh repair resulted in the reduction of the hernia. To our knowledge, this is the first report on the mesh repair of the coccygeal hernia via an abdominal approach.  (+info)

Instability of the coccyx in coccydynia. (4/56)

Coccygectomy is a controversial operation. Some authors have reported good results, but others advise against the procedure. The criteria for selection are ill-defined. We describe a study to validate an objective criterion for patient selection, namely radiological instability of the coccyx as judged by intermittent subluxation or hypermobility seen on lateral dynamic radiographs when sitting. We enrolled prospectively 37 patients with chronic pain because of coccygeal instability unrelieved by conservative treatment who were not involved in litigation. The operation was performed by the same surgeon. Patients were followed up for a minimum of two years after coccygectomy, with independent assessment at two years. There were 23 excellent, 11 good and three poor results. The mean time to definitive improvement was four to eight months. Coccygectomy gave good results in this group of patients.  (+info)

Cauda equina syndrome caused by idiopathic sacral epidural lipomatosis. (5/56)

The patient, who was a non-obese woman with no predisposing conditions of lipomatosis, slowly developed cauda equina syndrome. Spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) presented mass lesion of high intensity on T1-weighted image (WI) and an intermediate signal intensity in T2 WI in the epidural space of S1 to coccyges. It has been reported that most idiopathic epidural lipomatosis (IEDL) is observed in obese men, and all cases have involved the thoracic or lumbar region. This is the first report of a patient with cauda equina syndrome caused by idiopathic sacral epidural lipomatosis (EDL).  (+info)

Dedifferentiated chordoma--a case report. (6/56)

First-trimester diagnosis of sacrococcygeal teratoma: the role of three-dimensional ultrasound. (7/56)

A fetus was suspected of having a sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) on routine nuchal translucency evaluation by sonography at 12+3 weeks. The patient was referred for three-dimensional (3D) sonography to further delineate the extent of the mass. In this case, real-time scanning of the mass in 3D mode assisted the diagnosis of the mass and patient counseling. We present what we believe to be the first case of SCT imaged in the first trimester using 3D ultrasound.  (+info)

Coccygectomy for instability of the coccyx. (8/56)

Between 1993 and 2000, 61 patients with instability-related coccygodynia were operated on by a single surgeon using the same technique. There were 49 women and 12 men, mean age 45.3 (18-72) years. Twenty-seven patients had hypermobility of the coccyx and 33 subluxation. In all cases, the unstable portion was removed through a limited incision directly over the coccyx. The outcome was assessed using a detailed questionnaire. Follow-up was between 12 months and more than 30 months. The outcome was rated excellent or good in 53 patients, fair in one, and poor in seven. There were nine patients with infection requiring reoperation.  (+info)

The tailbone (coccyx) is the terminal part of the vertebral column - the collection of bones (vertebrae) that surround the spinal cord. It is referred to as the tailbone because of its appearance and since in the adult it is just a remnant of the actual tail-like protrusion in early fetal life (caudal eminence). Unlike the rest of the spine, the coccyx and the lower half of the sacrum do not play any weight-bearing role when standing but weight is transmitted to these areas during sitting. The weight transferred to the coccyx increases with sitting backwards and decreases when sitting forwards. The coccyx is also an important site for the attachment of muscles, tendons and ligaments. The coccyx is made up of 3 to 5 bones - the uppermost of these (Co1) fuses with the sacrum (S5) while the remaining bones fuse together. These bones are small and underdeveloped when compared to other vertebrae. The coccyx articulates with the sacrum at the sacrococcygeal junction. However, the coccyx is almost ...

Coccydynia is a medical term meaning pain in the coccyx or tailbone area, usually brought on by sitting too abruptly. Coccydynia is also known as coccygodynia, coccygeal pain, coccyx pain, or coccalgia. Coccydynia occurs in the lowest part of the spine, the coccyx, which is believed to be a vestigial tail, or in other words the tail bone. The name coccyx is derived from the Greek word for cuckoo due to its beak like appearance. The coccyx itself is made up of 3 to 5 vertebrae, some of which may be fused together. The ventral side of the coccyx is slightly concave whereas the dorsal aspect is slightly convex. Both of these sides have transverse grooves that show where the vestigial coccygeal units had previously fused. The coccyx attaches the sacrum, from the dorsal grooves with the attachment being either a symphysis or as a true synovial joint, and also to the gluteus maximus muscle, the coccygeal muscle, and the anococcygeal ligament. There are four different orientations for the coccyx, as ...
After the coccyx fracture, the organism stimulates the repair of the bone tissue by itself, so that there may be a greater deposit of salts and the formation of the callus bone, which is replaced by the corresponding bone fragment. However, one of the risks of breaking the coccyx is that the repair process is abnormal, causing the structure has not grown completely or has done too much and, consequently, there is an incorrect union that can cause some alterations.. This bad union in the fracture of the coccyx can cause chronic pain, mainly, when sitting or getting up, in addition to possible problems to defecate by the pressure that could exert on the intestines. In these cases, the most advisable is surgery on an outpatient basis and usually takes no more than half an hour, but even undergoing this treatment, the recovery and improvement of symptoms can be slow, going from a couple of months to a year after doing it. ...
There are a number of coccyx injection procedures available to patients, and we will run through some common types below. The procedure will take place in theatre under full aseptic conditions with the patient on his or her stomach. The injection site is thoroughly cleansed and numbed with an anaesthetic before fluoroscopy (live X-ray) is used to guide the needle into the right area to avoid organ injury. A small needle in the back of your hand can be used to administer sedation or in case of an emergency.. Coccygeal injection consisting of direct administration of steroid and local anaesthetic.. Ganglion impar injection treats coccyx pain by blocking the pain signals to the brain, and these injections can be both diagnostic and therapeutic.. A caudal epidural injection for coccyx pain targets the nerves at the spines lower end and is administered in the epidural space. This space can be accessed through a hole which is found at the lower end of the sacrum.. A coccygeal nerve block is also used ...

Dear Readers and followers of my blog,. Ive always wanted to be a chiropractor. At least from age 4 on. Prior to that who knows? By age 15 I was already working in my fathers office. I was one of his assistants. I monitored therapies he had applied on his patients and made sure no one got burned or the electrical stimulation wasnt too strong and painful.. One afternoon my dad had an X-ray on his view box and asked if I saw anything wrong on the film. I was probably only a sophomore or junior in high school and havent had any gross anatomy yet. I hadnt learned skeletal anatomy either. After a minute or 2 of staring at the film I told dad that I thought something was wrong with this patients coccyx. Surprised he asked me to explain more. I told him I thought the persons tail had a weird angle to the bones.. Dad was really surprised and I remember a feeling of pride was conveyed in his face. He then told me the patient had fallen on her buttocks and broken her coccyx. Those small bones of ...

If youve happened to be in one of these situations, you know the cause. The doctor will ask you to lie down, using a coccyx pillow under your stomach. He will look for bruising and apply pressure to the general area. You will have to tell him if you have trouble during bowel movements. Other stressful actions may be intercourse or doing sit-ups.. According to Nabil Ebraheim, MD Chairman of Orthopaedics at the University of Toledo, Dull aching pain symptoms are associated with coccydynia. The pain becomes sharp during siting or when getting up from sitting, pain originating in the middle just above the anus, pain improves while leaning forward or to the side, and local tenderness over the area. Pain will increased during sex, defecation and menstruating.. You will most likely have to get an X-ray too, just in case.

ECX is called a congenital defect in the development of the soft tissue of the sacrococcygeal region. Typically, pilonidal cyst bothers young people aged 15-30 years. ECX is also known as pilonidal cyst, epithelial coccygeal cyst, sacrococcygeal fistula, pilonidal sinus.. Although it is a congenital disease, people can live for years and not even know about their disease. This is because the epithelial the course often does not show symptoms. You can experience itching, discomfort in the coccyx area. The skin in the coccyx area can be wet and may appear purulent discharge. Initially the cyst of the coccyx and can be mistaken for pimple. Most people do not attach much importance to these symptoms. However, sooner or later, the inflammation increases, and to ignore it will not succeed. Symptoms of cysts of the coccyx may not appear for several months and then appear again. During periods when symptoms are not felt, you may think that the illness receded, and everything went by itself. However, it ...
The first and largest of the fused sacral element (S1) on the sacrum is the most cranial portion, which is called the sacral promontory. Sacral vertebrae decrease in size inferiorly along the series. The superior articular facets of S1 are termed the articular processes of the sacrum. Adjacent vertebrae are usually fused, but in a ventral view transverse lines are visible, delineating the ontogetically separate sacral vertebral bodies. Lateral to the sacral bodies, the sacrum is perforated by intervertebral foramina. The transverse processes of the sacral vertebrae are fused together to form the ala, or wing, on each side of the sacrum.. Dorsally, the spinous processes of the sacral vertebrae diminish in prominence inferiorly. The spinous processes are variably fused together, forming the median crest of the sacrum. The most inferior portion of the sacrum is termed the apex . This apex articulates with the coccyx. The superior and lateral sides of the sacrum bear the large, shallow auricular ...

The posterior sacrococcygeal ligament or dorsal sacrococcygeal ligament is a ligament which stretches from the sacrum to the coccyx and thus dorsally across the sacrococcygeal symphysis shared by these two bones. This ligament is divisible in two parts: A short deep part which unites the two bones, and a larger superficial portion which completes the lower back part of the sacral canal. On either side, two lateral sacrococcygeal ligaments run between the transverse processes of the coccyx and the inferior lateral angle of the sacrum. It is in relation, behind, with the gluteus maximus. The deep dorsal sacrococcygeal ligament (ligamentum sacrococcygeum posterius profundum) is a continuation of the posterior longitudinal ligament. A flat band arising inside the sacral canal, posteriorly at the orifice of the fifth sacral segment, it descends to the dorsal surface of the coccyx under its longer fellow described below. The superficial dorsal sacrococcygeal ligament (ligamentum sacrococcygeum ...

you are wasting your time. ?Do you suffer from tailbone or coccyx pain? Most people may not know this but there are actually several exercises you can do in order to mitigate and even stop the coccyx pain. Most of these exercises work through toning and strengthening your pelvic area stimulating the nerves in the coccyx tailbone area and easing the pain.. Another important factor of a great workout regimen is to incorporate alternating rest repetitions and sets. This is an important element in a good workout. If you are a beginner you can start by doing five to ten repetitions at three sets each with a ninety second in between each set. Once you are more used to exercising you can increased either the reps up to twenty five or the sets to up to five. For those who want to build up their muscles you can do twelve to twenty five reps per set; and for those who desire to sculpt their bodies they can do eight to fifteen reps per set.

... is constantly being created and replaced in a process known as remodeling. This ongoing turnover of bone is a process of resorption followed by replacement of bone with little change in shape. This is accomplished through osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Cells are stimulated by a variety of signals, and together referred to as a remodeling unit. Approximately 10% of the skeletal mass of an adult is remodelled each year.[42] The purpose of remodeling is to regulate calcium homeostasis, repair microdamaged bones from everyday stress, and to shape the skeleton during growth.[citation needed] Repeated stress, such as weight-bearing exercise or bone healing, results in the bone thickening at the points of maximum stress (Wolff's law). It has been hypothesized that this is a result of bone's piezoelectric properties, which cause bone to generate small electrical potentials under stress.[43] The action of osteoblasts and osteoclasts are controlled by a number of chemical enzymes that either promote or ...
Pressure on the xiphoid process should be avoided when administering chest compressions in CPR, as this can cause the xiphoid process to break off, resulting in punctures or lacerations of the diaphragm. Additionally, the liver may be punctured, resulting in lethal hemorrhaging. Xiphoidalgia (Xiphodynia) is a syndrome distinguishable by pain and tenderness to the sternum.

Anesthetic and steroid injections are commonly employed to treat this medical ...
The head is small and rounded, and possesses only a single articular facet, for articulation with the body of the first thoracic vertebra. The neck is narrow and rounded. The tubercle, thick and prominent, is placed on the outer border. It bears a small facet for articulation with the transverse costal facet on the transverse process of T1. There is no angle, but at the tubercle the rib is slightly bent, with the convexity upward, so that the head of the bone is directed downward. The upper surface of the body is marked by two shallow grooves, separated from each other by a slight ridge prolonged internally into a tubercle, the scalene tubercle, for the attachment of the anterior scalene; the anterior groove transmits the subclavian vein, the posterior the subclavian artery and the lowest trunk of the brachial plexus. Behind the posterior groove is a rough area for the attachment of the medial scalene. The under surface is smooth, and without a costal groove. The outer border is convex, thick, ...
