Spontaneous chronic spinal epidural hematoma of the lumbar spine. (1/445)

We report an exceptional description of a spontaneous chronic spinal epidural hematoma presenting as lumbar radiculitis. The computed tomographic, magnetic resonance imaging, and intraoperative findings are presented. We discuss anatomical and pathophysiological considerations that could lead to such a condition. We estimate that spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas located in the ventral space are in fact premembranous or posterior longitudinal ligament hematomas.  (+info)

Migrated disc in the lumbar spinal canal--case report. (2/445)

A 49-year-old man who had complained of back pain for 20 years presented with numbness and pain in his left leg persisting for 6 weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a peripherally enhanced intraspinal mass at the L-3 level. The mass was completely removed. The operative and histological findings revealed degenerated disc fragments surrounded by granulation tissue. His symptoms were completely relieved. Migrated disc should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients with a long history of back pain and an intraspinal mass.  (+info)

Neurological complications of spinal tuberculosis in children. (3/445)

Neurological complications of thoracic and lumbar spinal tuberculosis were studied in 32 patients under the age of 16 years. The majority had lesions involving three or more vertebral bodies. Paraplegia occurred in 8 patients and was always associated with bladder and bowel dysfunction. Lesions located at T4/5 were most commonly accompanied by paraplegia. Deterioration of the neurological status was related to the degree of spinal stenosis, whereas the degree of kyphosis was of less importance. Radiculopathy is rare in children with Pott's disease.  (+info)

Cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy: when and what can surgery contribute to treatment? (4/445)

Indications and timing of surgical treatment for cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy, and the long-term results for the conditions, were reviewed. Advances in spinal imaging and accumulation of clinical experience have provided some clues as to indications and timing of surgery for cervical myelopathy. Duration of myelopathy prior to surgery and the transverse area of the spinal cord at the maximum compression level were the most significant prognostic parameters for surgical outcome. Thus, when myelopathy is caused by etiological factors that are either unchangeable by nature, such as developmental canal stenosis, or progressive, such as ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, surgical treatment should be considered. When an etiology of myelopathy is remissible, such as soft disc herniation and listhesis, surgery may be reserved until the effects of conservative treatment are confirmed. When surgery is properly carried out, long-term surgical results are expected to be good and stable, and the natural course of myelopathy secondary to cervical spondylosis may be modified. However, little attention has been paid to the questions "When and what can surgery contribute to treatment of cervical radiculopathy?". A well-controlled clinical study including natural history should be done to provide some answers.  (+info)

Spontaneous vertebral arteriovenous fistula--case report. (5/445)

A 57-year-old male presented with a rare case of spontaneous vertebral arteriovenous fistula manifesting as radiculopathy of the right arm, subsequently associated with pulsating tinnitus and vascular bruit in the nape. He had a past history of chiropractic-induced vertebrobasilar infarction. Angiography showed a simple and direct fistula between the third segment of the right vertebral artery and the epidural veins at the C-1 level, where the artery runs backward above the arch of the C-1 just proximal to the penetration of the dura. The fistula was successfully obliterated by coil embolization, resulting in rapid improvement of the signs and symptoms. Mechanical compression to the nerve roots by the engorged epidural veins with arterial pressure was considered to be the major cause of radiculopathy. Vertebral artery dissection induced by chiropractic manipulation is most likely responsible for the development of the fistula.  (+info)

Tuberculous radiculomyelitis complicating tuberculous meningitis: case report and review. (6/445)

Tuberculous radiculomyelitis (TBRM) is a complication of tuberculous meningitis (TBM), which has been reported rarely in the modern medical literature. We describe a case of TBRM that developed in an human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patient, despite prompt antituberculous treatment. To our knowledge, this is the second case of TBRM reported in an HIV-infected patient. We also review 74 previously reported cases of TBRM. TBRM develops at various periods after TBM, even in adequately treated patients after sterilization of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The most common symptoms are subacute paraparesis, radicular pain, bladder disturbance, and subsequent paralysis. CSF evaluation usually shows an active inflammatory response with a very high protein level. MRI and CT scan are critical for diagnosis, revealing loculation and obliteration of the subarachnoid space along with linear intradural enhancement. As in other forms of paradoxical reactions to antituberculous treatment, there is evidence that steroid treatment might have a beneficial effect.  (+info)

Haemorrhagic lumbar synovial cyst. A cause of acute radiculopathy. (7/445)

A total of 254 cases of synovial cysts of the spine have been reported in the English literature, but only eight have been associated with haemorrhage. We describe a 55-year-old man with acute radiculopathy resulting from haemorrhage involving a synovial cyst at a lumbar facet joint. Traumatic factors could have caused bleeding around or into the synovial cyst. Treatment by resection of the cyst and evacuation of the haematoma led to complete neurological recovery.  (+info)

Neuroprotection by encephalomyelitis: rescue of mechanically injured neurons and neurotrophin production by CNS-infiltrating T and natural killer cells. (8/445)

In experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), CD4(+) self-reactive T cells target myelin components of the CNS. However, the consequences of an autoaggressive T cell response against myelin for neurons are currently unknown. We herein demonstrate that EAE induced by active immunization with an encephalitogenic myelin basic protein peptide dramatically reduces the loss of spinal motoneurons after ventral root avulsion in rats. Both brain-derived neurotophic factor (BDNF)- and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3)-like immunoreactivities were detected in mainly T and natural killer (NK) cells in the spinal cord. In addition, very high levels of BDNF, NT-3, and glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor mRNAs were present in T and NK cell populations infiltrating the CNS. Interestingly, bystander recruited NK and T cells displayed similar or higher neurotrophic factor levels compared with the EAE disease-driving encephalitogenic T cell population. High levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) mRNAs were also detected, and both these cytokines can be harmful to several types of CNS cells, including neurons. However, treatment of embryonic motoneuron cultures with TNF-alpha or IFN-gamma only had a deleterious effect in cultures deprived of neurotrophic factors. These results suggest that the potentially neurodamaging consequences of severe CNS inflammation are curbed by the production of several potent neurotrophic factors in leukocytes.  (+info)

Cervical Radiculopathy is a common medical diagnosis that can take on a number of forms. Simply put, its the pain and neurological symptoms resulting from any irritation of a nerve in the neck, or cervical spine. Many refer to it as a pinched nerve.. Nerves in the neck branch out to the muscles that help your shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers move, function, and let you feel hot, cold, soft, etc. A patients symptoms and diagnosis of Cervical Radiculopathy vary widely and depend on the nerve that is affected.. Causes. Any type of injury or irritation can trigger Cervical Radiculopathy. A few of the most common causes include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis. Cervical Radiculopathy is more common in middle to older aged adults due to natural degenerative changes in the discs of the spine as we age. Young people experience Cervical Radiculopathy most commonly as the result of a sport or other related injury.. Symptoms. The effects of Cervical ...

Radiculopathy is a medical term for neurological deficits. Lumbar radiculopathy and thoracic radiculopathy are different kind of radiculopathy. SCORE offers treatment for this condition.
Radiculopathy is a condition in which nerves within in the spine are compressed or irritated and cause pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness along the course of the nerve. Radiculopathy can occur in any part of the spine, but it is most common in the lower back and in the neck. The pain often radiates to the part of the body served by that nerve. For example, a nerve root impingement in the neck can produce pain and weakness in the forearm.. Risk factors for radiculopathy are activities that place an excessive or repetitive load on the spine. Persons involved in heavy labor are more prone to develop radiculopathy than those with a more sedentary lifestyle. A family history of radiculopathy or other spine disorders also increase the risk of developing radiculopathy. Other causes of radiculopathy include diabetes, which can decrease the normal blood flow to the spinal nerves. Inflammation from trauma or degeneration can lead to radiculopathy from direct irritation of the nerves.. Most patients ...

N2 - Intrathecal chemotherapy with methotrexate or cytosine arabinoside is the standard approach to prophylaxis and treatment of central nervous system leukemia in children. Progressive paraplegia, one of the devastating neurologic complications related to this mode of treatment, has been attributed to spinal cord toxicity. Reported are three children who developed progressive paraparesis after intrathecal methotrexate administration followed by complete or partial recovery. Gadolinium enhancement of anterior lumbosacral spinal nerve roots was demonstrated in all three patients, and an elevation of cerebrospinal fluid immunoglobulin G synthesis was evident in two patients with more severe symptoms. The clinical data suggest that anterior lumbosacral radiculopathy is also a type of neurologic ...

Study Design. Prospective randomized controlled trial. Objective. To study the outcome of anterior cervical decompression and fusion combined with a structured physiotherapy program compared with the same physiotherapy program alone for patients with cervical radiculopathy. Summary of Background Data. Knowledge concerning the effects of interventions for patients with cervical radiculopathy is scarce due to a lack of randomized studies. Methods. Sixty-three patients were randomized to surgery with postoperative physiotherapy (n = 31) or physiotherapy alone (n = 32). The surgical group was treated with anterior cervical decompression and fusion. The physiotherapy program included general/specific exercises and pain-coping strategies. The outcome measures were disability (Neck Disability Index), neck and arm pain intensity (visual analogue scale), and the patient's global assessment. Patients were followed for 24 months. Results. The result from the repeated-measures analysis of variance ...
Central Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) and Selective Nerve Root Blocks (SNRB) are often used for the non-surgical treatment of lumbar disc herniations and lumbar radiculitis (radiating pain). Numerous authors have reported on their value in treating patients with radicular pain with the possibility of delaying or even obviating the need for surgery in well-selected patients.. There are two well-performed clinical studies in the peer-reviewed medical literature that specifically examined the crossover rates to surgery for patients who received either ESI or SNRB. In a prospective study, Buttermann et al. found a crossover rate to surgery for patients with symptomatic disc herniations treated with ESI of 54% (27/50) . In a separate prospective study, Riew et al. followed patients after selective nerve root blocks and found that similarly 53% (29/55) of their patients had avoided surgery after a selective nerve root block during their initial follow-up of 13-28 months. In a later study that ...
Patient: My wife has a shooting pain starts in her neck,through her shoulder under her arm anddown under her ribs.We are putting a heat pad on it but doesnt seem to be very affective. Doctor: The shooting pain in your wifes shoulder, arm and down that you described might be due a cervical nerve compression. In In the younger patients, cervical radiculopathy may be a result of a disc herniation or an acute injury causing impingement of an exiting nerve. In the older patient, cervical radiculopathy is often a result of spinal canal narrowing from bone (osteophyte) formation, decreased disc height and degenerative changes due to aging process. The same described before for the cervical spine applies to the lower back in terms of cause of pain and numbness in the legs, same causes, different spinal level.The treatment strategy usually includes: physical therapy program aimed to reduce pain and inflammation, and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs (as ibuprofen), also a re-education of habits and ...
A cervical radiculopathy is a problem that results when a nerve in the neck is irritated as it leaves the spinal canal. This condition usually occurs when a nerve root is being pinched by a bone spur or a herniated disc.. When a nerve root leaves the spinal cord and the cervical spine, it travels down into the arm. Along the way each nerve supplies sensation (feeling) to a part of the skin of the shoulder and arm. It also supplies electrical signals to certain muscles to move part of the arm or hand. When a nerve is irritated or pinched, by either a bone spur or a part of the herniated disc, it causes problems in the nerve.. A cervical radiculopathy causes symptoms that radiate out away from the neck. What this means is that although the problem is in the spine, the symptoms may be felt in the shoulder, the arm, or the hand. The symptoms will be felt in the area where the nerve that is irritated travels. By looking at where the symptoms are, the spine specialist can usually tell which nerve is ...
Cervical radiculopathy refers to neck pain that radiates into the shoulder and arm as a result of dysfunction of the nerve root in the neck, or cervical region of the spine. Sometimes known as a pinched nerve, cervical radiculopathy can be caused by a herniated disk, bone spur, injury to the spine or osteoarthritis. When a nerve becomes irritated, it may send pain signals throughout the area through which it extends.
Objectives: To investigate whether distinct sensory phenotypes were identifiable in individuals with nonspecific arm pain (NSAP) and whether these differed from those in people with cervical radiculopathy. A secondary question considered whether the frequency of features of neuropathic pain, kinesiophobia, high pain ratings, hyperalgesia, and allodynia differed according to subgroups of sensory phenotypes. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: Higher education institution.Participants: Forty office workers with NSAP, 17 people with cervical radiculopathy, and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy controls (N=97). Interventions: Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures: Participants were assessed using quantitative sensory testing (QST) comprising thermal and vibration detection thresholds and thermal and pressure pain thresholds; clinical examination; and relevant questionnaires. Sensory phenotypes were identified for each individual in the patient groups using z-score transformation of the QST data. ...

Cervical radiculopathy is a condition in which nerve roots in the cervical spine (neck) are compressed by surrounding vertebrae. Lumbar radiculopathy is an equivalent condition of the lower spine and is more common than cervical radiculopathy. Compression can damage the nerves nearest to the spine, causing immense pain, muscle weakness and even numbness in various areas of the body. Pain is usually described as radiating discomfort that spreads throughout the trunk and into the extremities. Often, this pain worsens in certain positions or during certain movements.. ...

What is a selective nerve root block?. In a lumbar epidural injection, a corticosteroid (anti-inflammatory medicine) is injected into the epidural space to reduce inflammation. A local anesthetic n(numbing medicine) may also be injected. If the needle is positioned next to an individual nerve root, it is called a selective nerve root block. This technique puts medication directly along an inflamed nerve root.. 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 epidural space. 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.. Once the doctor is sure the needle is correctly placed, the medicine will be injected.. What happens after an 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 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Ultrasonographic cross-sectional area of spinal nerve roots in cervical radiculopathy. T2 - A pilot study. AU - Kim, Eunkuk. AU - Yoon, Joon Shik. AU - Kang, Hyo Jung. PY - 2015/1/1. Y1 - 2015/1/1. N2 - Recently, sonographic assessment has been considered an alternative method for evaluating cervical root lesions. The aim of this pilot study was to measure cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of cervical spinal nerve roots using high-resolution ultrasonography in patients with cervical radiculopathy, to compare the CSA of nerve roots between the affected and unaffected sides. Patients with a clinical diagnosis of unilateral cervical radiculopathy, who were referred to the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the University General Hospital by general practitioners, were prospectively recruited. The selected nerve roots were sonographically imaged at the most proximal location possible, where they exited over the transverse processor, just distal to that point. The CSA ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Treatment of Diabetic and Nondiabetic Lumbosacral Radiculoplexus Neuropathy. AU - Thaisetthawatkul, Pariwat. AU - James, P.. AU - Dyck, B.. PY - 2010/3/1. Y1 - 2010/3/1. N2 - Lumbosacral radiculoplexus neuropathy (LRPN) is a multifocal, asymmetric, painful neuropathic disorder affecting multiple levels of lumbosacral plexus, nerve roots, and distal nerves that emerge from the plexus. The disorder was first described in diabetic patients (DLRPN) and was later found to occur in nondiabetic patients as well. There have been debates as to the pathogenesis of DLRPN and LRPN. Recent detailed and extensive pathologic studies, however, have shown that the main pathogenesis is inflammation and microvasculitis affecting various components in the peripheral nerves, resulting in ischemic injury to the nerves. Even though studies on the natural history of this disorder have shown that the majority of patients recover within a few years after the attack without any treatment (although recovery ...
Structured physiotherapy should be tried before surgery is chosen, concluded researchers of a study comparing surgery followed by physical therapy and physical therapy alone for cervical radiculopathy. Even though the results of the 24-month randomized controlled trial, published this week in Spine, showed greater improvement in the first postoperative year, the differences between the groups decreased after the second year. The study compared 2 approaches to cervical radiculopathy: anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) with a physical therapy program (31 subjects) and the same physical therapy program alone (32 subjects). The physical therapy program included general and specific exercises and pain coping strategies.

Structured physiotherapy should be tried before surgery is chosen, concluded researchers of a study comparing surgery followed by physical therapy and physical therapy alone for cervical radiculopathy. Even though the results of the 24-month randomized controlled trial, published this week in Spine, showed greater improvement in the first postoperative year, the differences between the groups decreased after the second year. The study compared 2 approaches to cervical radiculopathy: anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) with a physical therapy program (31 subjects) and the same physical therapy program alone (32 subjects). The physical therapy program included general and specific exercises and pain coping strategies. Outcome measures were disability (Neck Disability Index, NDI), neck- and arm-pain intensity using a visual analog scale (VAS), and the patients global assessment. At 12 months, there was no significant difference between groups for NDI or VAS for arm-pain intensity. ...
A review published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine examined 162 patients with radiculopathy who were treated with chiropractic care. Of those patients, more than 85% not only experienced pain relief, but their conditions were resolved. This was done over 9 treatment sessions. Most of the patients saw improvement of their symptoms within 4 days of their first treatment.. There are a number of treatments for lumbar radiculopathy, including pain medication, epidural steroid injection, and surgery. However, chiropractic care is non-invasive and does not have the unpleasant, sometimes harmful of many pain medications. It is safe and effective, treating the entire body instead of just the part that hurts.. When treating lumbar radiculopathy, the chiropractor may use several techniques such as spinal adjustments as well as stabilization exercise and neuromobilization. They will also work with the patient to determine if there are engaging in any activities that increase their risk factor for ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Comparison of motor conduction abnormalities in lumbosacral radiculopathy and axonal polyneuropathy. AU - Berger, Alan R.. AU - Sharma, Khema. AU - Lipton, Richard B.. PY - 1999/8. Y1 - 1999/8. N2 - We compared the frequencies and types of motor conduction abnormalities found in peroneal and tibial nerves of patients with either L5/S1 radiculopathies (n = 47) or axonal polyneuropathies (n = 49). In axonal neuropathies, compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) were more likely to be either unobtainable or, if present, of low amplitude, prolonged in distal latency or both. F responses were more often absent, impersistent, or prolonged in minimal latency. In contrast, CMAPs in lumbosacral radiculopathies were more likely to be normal in both amplitude and distal latency. The most frequent F-response abnormality in radiculopathies was a prolonged maximum-minimum latency range rather than abnormalities of minimal latency or persistence. Logistic regression analysis demonstrated that ...

Abstracts of scientific studies on the use of PEMF with Whiplash:. Evaluation of electromagnetic fields in the treatment of pain in patients with lumbar radiculopathy or the whiplash syndromeBack pain and the whiplash syndrome are very common diseases involving tremendous costs and extensive medical effort. A quick and effective reduction of symptoms, especially pain, is required. In two prospective randomized studies, patients with either lumbar radiculopathy in the segments L5/S1 or the whiplash syndrome were investigated. Inclusion criteria were as follows: either clinically verified painful lumbar radiculopathy in the segments L5/S1 and a Laségues sign of 30 degrees (or more), or typical signs of the whiplash syndrome such as painful restriction of rotation and flexion/extension. Exclusion criteria were prolapsed intervertebral discs, systemic neurological diseases, epilepsy, and pregnancy.. A total of 100 patients with lumbar radiculopathy and 92 with the whiplash syndrome were selected ...
Cervical nerve root injury commonly leads to pain. The duration of an applied compression has been shown to contribute to both the onset of persistent pain and also the degree of spinal cellular and molecular responses related to nociception that are produced. This thesis uses a rat model of a transient cervical nerve root compression to study how the duration of an applied compression modulates both peripherally-evoked activity in spinal cord neurons during a root compression and the resulting neuronal and glutamatergic responses in the nerve root and spinal cord. Studies define the compression duration threshold that inhibits peripherally-evoked action potentials in the spinal cord during a root compression to be at 6.6±3.0 minutes and this is similar to the threshold for eliciting persistent mechanical allodynia after a cervical root compression that lies between 3 and 10 minutes. Furthermore, neurotransmission remains inhibited for at least 10 minutes after a painful nerve root compression and

A selective nerve block (SNRB) is the injection of a local anesthetic along a specific nerve root. This procedure is used primarily to diagnose nerve root compression. SNRB injections are isolated to various locations along the spine to determine which nerve root is causing the pain. If the patients pain dissipates after the injection at a particular nerve root, it can be inferred that the source of pain was being generated at the selected nerve root. Along with acting as a diagnostic tool, SNRBs can alleviate the discomfort associated with nerve root compression when used with an injectable steroid.. Administering a selective nerve block only takes a few minutes, but it is recommended to allow an hour for the entire visit, including a pre-operative consultation with the physician as well as post-operative observation.. What Happens during Selective Nerve Blocks?. A selective nerve block is performed by injecting a local anesthetic adjacent to vertebral foramina along the spine from which nerve ...
An IV may be started so that relaxation medication can be given. The patient is placed on the X-ray table and positioned in such a way that the physician can best visualize the bony openings in the spine where the nerve roots exit the spine using x-ray guidance. The skin on the back is cleansed. Next, the physician numbs a small area of skin with numbing medicine. This medicine stings for several seconds. After the numbing medicine has been given time to be effective, the physician directs a very small needle, using x-ray guidance near the specific nerve being tested. A small amount of contract (dye) is injected to insure proper needle position. This may temporarily increase usual pain for about 30 minutes. Then a small mixture of numbing medicine (anesthetic) and anti-inflammatory (cortisone/steroid) is injected ...

Lumbar radiculopathy is a syndrome of buttock/leg pain, weakness, and/or numbness/tingling caused by a pinched nerve in the back. Nerve compression in the back leads to pain in the legs. Sciatica is a common term used to describe the buttock/leg pains of lumbar radiculopathy. The leg pain from lumbar radiculopathy can be similar to leg pain from hip trochanteric bursitis, hip/knee arthritis, and piriformis syndrome.. ...
This injection procedure is performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. The steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica and herniated disk. The patient lies facedown. A cushion is placed under the stomach area to provide comfort and flex the back. This position causes the spine to open, allowing for easier access to the epidural space. The physician uses a fluoroscope to locate the appropriate lumbar vertebral and nerve root, and a local anesthetic numbs the skin. All the tissue down to the surface of the vertebral transverse process is anesthetized. The physician slides a thin bent needle with a slightly curved point through the anesthetized track. With the aid of the fluoroscope, the physician carefully guides the needle into the foraminal space near the nerve root. The physician injects contrast solution and uses the fluoroscope to see the painful areas and confirmed the correct location of ...

What is a lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection?. In a lumbar epidural injection, a corticosteroid (anti-inflammatory medicine) is injected into the epidural space to reduce inflammation. A local anesthetic (numbing medicine) may also be injected. When it is done from the side where the nerve exists the spine, it is called a transforaminal injection. This technique puts the medication near the source of inflammation.. 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 epidural space. 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. Once the doctor is sure the needle is correctly placed, the medicine will be injected.. What happens after an injection?. After the injection, you will be closely monitored for up to 30 minutes.When you are set to go, you will receive a list ...
