Lower extremity spasticity and incontinence may also develop. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1269)
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS.

Extraneural metastasizing ependymoma of the spinal cord. (1/586)

This paper reports a case of the rare entity of an extraneural metastasizing ependymoma of the spinal cord. The tumor which arose in the conus medullaris and in the cauda equina was first diagnosed in 1956 when a thoracolumbar myeloresection was performed. At autopsy, 40 years after the primary diagnosis, a massive local tumor recurrence with extraneural metastases in the lungs, the pleura, the liver, and the thoracal and abdominal lymph nodes were found. Immunohistochemical stains of the extraneural metastases showed a strong cytoplasmatic expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Neither the primary tumor nor its metastases showed any of the conventional morphological criteria of malignancy. Reviewing the literature we discuss the possible mechanism of extraneural tumor spread and the incidence of metastases with regard to the tumor type.  (+info)

Recurrent spinal epidural metastases: a prospective study with a complete follow up. (2/586)

OBJECTIVES: Prospective studies with a complete follow up in patients with spinal epidural metastases (SEM) are rare, so little is known of the incidence and relevance of recurrent spinal epidural metastases (RSEM). This prospective study was undertaken as a part of a previously started and extended prospective study to determine the occurrence and details of RSEM. METHODS: Patients with SEM of various primary malignancies were followed up until death. The diagnosis was confirmed after neurological examination by imaging studies visualising not only the clinically suspected level, but also as much of the spinal canal as possible. RESULTS: Recurrent spinal epidural metastases (RSEM) occurred in 21 of the 103 patients (20%) after a median interval of 7 months and, after treatment, a second recurrence occurred in 11 patients (11%), a third recurrence in two patients (2%), and a sixth recurrence in one patient (1%). RSEM developed about as often at the initial level (55%) as at a different level (45%), did not occur more often in patients with initially multiple SEM, but, not surprisingly, occurred much more often in patients with longer survival. About one half of the patients surviving 2 years, and nearly all patients surviving 3 years or longer developed RSEM. Ambulatory state could be preserved in most patients, even after their second recurrence. CONCLUSION: RSEM are common and even several episodes of RSEM in the same patient are not rare. Patients with SEM who survive long enough have a high risk of RSEM and prompt treatment of RSEM to maintain the ambulatory state of the patient is valuable.  (+info)

Phase I trial of methotrexate-albumin in a weekly intravenous bolus regimen in cancer patients. Phase I Study Group of the Association for Medical Oncology of the German Cancer Society. (3/586)

Methotrexate-albumin conjugate (MTX-HSA) is a novel human albumin-based prodrug conjugate of methotrexate (MTX). A low MTX loading rate provided optimal tumor targeting and therapeutic efficacy during preclinical testing. The objectives of this first Phase I study of MTX-HSA were to determine dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in a weekly regimen. Seventeen cancer patients who were no longer amenable to standard treatment were enrolled and were evaluable for DLT. Up to eight injections were performed in weekly intervals. Dose escalation was as follows: 20, 40, 50, and then 60 mg/m2 MTX-HSA (based on the amount of MTX bound to albumin). Additional MTX-HSA courses were feasible in case of tumor response. DLT (mainly stomatitis, Common Toxicity Criteria grade 3) occurred, beginning at the 50 mg/m2 dose level after repeated administrations; in one case, thrombocytopenia was dose-limiting. Two events of DLT occurred at the 60 mg/m2 dose level within the first two administrations. Mild anemia, transaminitis, and one case of skin toxicity were found. No significant leukopenia, nausea, renal toxicity, or other toxicities were observed. MTX-HSA was well tolerated. Drug accumulation occurred on the weekly schedule. The half-life of the drug was estimated to be up to 3 weeks. Tumor responses were seen in three patients: (a) a partial response was seen in one patient with renal cell carcinoma (response duration, 30 months, ongoing); (b) a minor response was seen in one patient with pleural mesothelioma (response duration, 31 months, ongoing); and (c) a minor response was seen in one patient with renal cell carcinoma (response duration, 14 months until progression). Poststudy treatment was administered at 2-4-week intervals. No signs of toxicity or drug accumulation were seen. Altered pharmacological properties of MTX-HSA such as plasma half-life, tumor targeting, or intracellular metabolism might have contributed to these responses. The MTD for weekly administration was 4 x 50 mg/m2 MTX-HSA during short-term treatment. A regimen with MTX-HSA injections of 50 mg/m2 every 2 weeks was recommended for a further clinical Phase I study.  (+info)

Diffusion tensor MR imaging and comparative histology of glioma engrafted in the rat spinal cord. (4/586)

MR imaging using contrast material derived from the diffusion of tissue water was tested for its ability to provide a nondestructive histologic analysis of tumor morphology. An apparent diffusion tensor MR image of a glioma engrafted within a rat spinal cord was generated in which fiber orientation in three dimensions was displayed in color. This imaging method clearly separated tumor from host white and gray matter and corresponded well with conventional histologic microscopy.  (+info)

Second lung adenocarcinoma after combination chemotherapy in two patients with primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (5/586)

We report a rare complication of a secondary malignant solid tumor in two patients with non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphoma who developed lung adenocarcinoma after treatments with combination chemotherapies. The first was a case of primary malignant lymphoma of the cervical spinal cord which had been previously treated with radiation to the spinal lesion and combination chemotherapies and entered complete remission. The patient was further treated for relapse with autologous bone marrow transplantation preconditioned with high-dose chemotherapy. Lung adenocarcinoma developed 5.5 years after the initial diagnosis. The second case of malignant lymphoma of lymph nodes did not respond to conventional combination chemotherapies and did not enter remission. Lung adenocarcinoma developed 1 year after the initial diagnosis. The two patients died of lung carcinoma. The clinical profiles of these cases are presented and the causal relationship of primary malignant neoplasms to the second malignant neoplasms is discussed.  (+info)

Molecular genetic analysis of ependymal tumors. NF2 mutations and chromosome 22q loss occur preferentially in intramedullary spinal ependymomas. (6/586)

Ependymal tumors are heterogeneous with regard to morphology, localization, age at first clinical manifestation, and prognosis. Several molecular alterations have been reported in these tumors, including allelic losses on chromosomes 10, 17, and 22 and mutations in the NF2 gene. However, in contrast to astrocytic gliomas, no consistent molecular alterations have been associated with distinct types of ependymal tumors. To evaluate whether morphological subsets of ependymomas are characterized by specific genetic lesions, we analyzed a series of 62 ependymal tumors, including myxopapillary ependymomas, subependymomas, ependymomas, and anaplastic ependymomas, for allelic losses on chromosome arms 10q and 22q and mutations in the PTEN and NF2 genes. Allelic losses on 10q and 22q were detected in 5 of 56 and 12 of 54 tumors, respectively. Six ependymomas carried somatic NF2 mutations, whereas no mutations were detected in the PTEN gene. All six of the NF2 mutations occurred in ependymomas of WHO grade II and were exclusively observed in tumors with a spinal localization (P = 0.0063). These findings suggest that a considerable fraction of spinal ependymomas are associated with molecular events involving chromosome 22 and that mutations in the NF2 gene may be of primary importance for their genesis. Furthermore, our data suggest that the more favorable clinical course of spinal ependymomas may relate to a distinct pattern of genetic alterations different from that of intracerebral ependymomas.  (+info)

Association of lower cranial nerve schwannoma with spinal ependymoma in ? NF2. (7/586)

A 15 year old male, who had earlier been operated for intraspinal intramedullary ependymoma, subsequently developed a right cerebello pontine (CP) angle mass. A diagnosis of right CP angle ependymoma was considered, in view of established histology of previously operated spinal lesion. Histopathological examination of the well defined extra-axial mass, which was attached with ninth cranial nerve, however revealed a schwannoma. A diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis-2 (NF2) is strongly suspected, because of well established fact, that the spinal ependymomas may have association with lower cranial nerve schwannomas in NF2. Cranial and spinal MRI screening for early diagnosis of associated, asymptomatic lesions, in suspected cases of NF2, particularly in children, is recommended.  (+info)

Management of intramedullary spinal cord tumours: review of 68 patients. (8/586)

68 consecutive patients admitted with intramedullary spinal cord tumours and operated at Vellore during a six year period from January 1990 are discussed. 41 tumours were radically resected, 11 partially excised while 14 had only a biopsy. Radiation therapy was advised post operatively to those patients for whom a partial excision or biopsy was done. There was no postoperative mortality. Two patients developed wound infection and one developed postoperative hydrocephalus. Postoperative clinical assessment between four to eight weeks after surgery showed that 25 out of 68 patients improved, 29 remained unchanged, while 14 had worsening of deficits. Immediate post operative assessment, however, was less encouraging. Evaluation of these patients was done using a functional scoring system and Karnofsky rating. The follow up period ranged from 2 weeks to 64 months after discharge from hospital with a mean of 14.6 months. The indicators of radical excision were good tumour-cord interface, cranially located tumours, presence of syringomyelia and histology of ependymoma. Two patients had recurrence of tumour.  (+info)

N2 - Five cases of intramedullary spinal cord metastasis are presented and an additional 50 cases from the English language literature since 1960 are reviewed. Lung cancer and breast cancer were the most frequently occurring primary neoplasms, but a wide variety of solid tumors may cause intramedullary spinal cord metastasis. The presenting symptoms were pain and/or weakness. The neurologic status deteriorated rapidly in the majority of patients in a period to days to weeks. Progression to a cord hemisection syndrome or cord transection occurred in approximately half of the patients. The characteristic myelographic appearance of fusiform swelling of the cord was seen in one third of the patients, but the myelogram was normal in 42%. Plain radiographs of the spine showed no evidence of metastatic disease in ...

While living in Kentucky during 2003, Kara and Dan Heck received the devastating news that their 3-year-old daughter Malia had a rare spinal cord tumor. The condition, called intramedullary astrocytoma, was so rare that the Hecks had to go to Baltimore to find a doctor to treat the condition. A surgery that removed most of the tumor was performed on Malia. Today, Malia is leading a healthy, active life.. But in most cases spinal cord tumors do return. The Heck family decided to take action against the deadly disease to find a cure, not just for their daughter, but for others suffering from this rare disease.. In 2004 they founded Malias CORD Foundation, which hopes to raise awareness of spinal cord tumors and support medical research for a cure. CORD stands for Cure for Others through Research and Development. The Heck family believes research into spinal cord tumors also will benefit the treatment of other types of tumors.. The CORD Foundation has been so successful that it is even awarding ...
Prompt treatment for spinal cord tumors is very important to help prevent nerve damage, spinal cord compression, or paralysis. The goal of treatment is to remove the tumor or relieve compression to preserve as much function as possible. Medications may be used to reduce swelling and prevent compression. Micro-laser surgery may be used to remove the tumor. Radiation therapy may be used with surgery, or in some cases, instead of surgery. Chemotherapy may be recommended in some cases, but overall, it has not proven to be effective against most spinal cord tumors.. Radiation therapy is a painless procedure. Your doctor will prescribe the amount and length of treatment based on your condition. Radiation therapy is usually delivered in several doses over a period of time. There are different types of radiation therapy that may be used to help treat spinal cord tumors.. External beam radiation uses high-energy beams to disrupt the growth of cancer cells. Radiation damages all cells both healthy and ...
Chemotherapy is commonly used to treat brain cancer. Chemotherapy is not usually used with tumours that start in the spine (primary spinal cord tumours), but may be used for tumours that have spread to the spine from other parts of the body (metastatic spinal cord tumours).

TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of stereotactic radiosurgery in the treatment of intramedullary spinal cord neoplasms. T2 - a systematic literature review. AU - Hernández-Durán, Silvia. AU - Hanft, Simon. AU - Komotar, Ricardo J. AU - Manzano, Glen. PY - 2015/7/30. Y1 - 2015/7/30. N2 - Advances in imaging technology and microsurgical techniques have made microsurgical resection the treatment of choice in cases of symptomatic intramedullary tumors. The use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for spinal tumors is a recent development, and its application to intramedullary lesions is debated. We conducted a literature search through PubMeds MeSH system, compiling information regarding intramedullary neoplasms treated by SRS. We compiled histology, tumor location and size, treatment modality, radiation dose, fractionation, radiation-induced complications, follow-up, and survival. Ten papers reporting on 52 patients with 70 tumors were identified. Metastatic lesions accounted for 33 %, while 67 % were ...

BACKGROUND. Spinal cord tumors are rare in cats and dogs. The most common spinal cord tumors are lymphoma in cats and meningioma in dogs. The majority of cats with spinal lymphoma are FeLV positive. Other spinal cord tumors include intradural-extramedullary spinal cord tumor of young dogs (also known as nephroblastoma and ependymoma) and glial tumors such as astrocytomas, oligodendroglioma, and choroid plexus tumors. The spinal cord can also be affected by extension of peripheral nerve tumors into the spinal canal. Spinal cord tumors cause neurologic dysfunction with clinical signs being dependent on their location along the spinal cord. Metastasis is rare.. DIAGNOSIS. Survey and contrast radiographs (myelogram) are important to rule out other causes of neurologic disease, such as intervertebral disk disease and vertebral tumors. The contrast pattern on the myelogram is used to classify spinal cord tumors as extradural, intradural-extramedullary, or intramedullary. Meningiomas and peripheral ...
Objective: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the predictive value of DTI with respect to resectability of intramedullary spinal cord tumors and to determine the concordance of this method with intraoperative surgical findings.. Methods: Study design was retrospective. 13 patients with intramedullary lesions of the spinal cord at different levels (7 male, 6 female; mean age: 51.9 14.8 years) underwent a full tensor diffusion imaging. Patients were classified according to the fiber course with respect to the lesion and rated as resectable vs. non-resectable. These results were compared to the surgical situation (existence vs. absence of cleavage plane) as a gold-standard. The inter-rater reliability (kappa coefficient of Cohen) as well as sensitivity, specificity, positive, and negative predictive values were calculated.. Results: Of the 13 patients (7 male, 6 female; mean age: 51.9 14.8 years) 12 had intramedullary tumors (7 ependymomas, 2 lymphomas and 3 astrocytoma, 1 ...
If the tumor is malignant and has spread into the spine from other parts of the body, treatment depends on the type of cancer it is. Surgery is usually the first step in treating cancerous and noncancerous tumors outside the spinalcord. Tumors inside the spinal cord may not be able to be completely removedwith surgery. If they cant be removed, radiation and chemotherapy treatments may ease symptoms. Treatment also may include pain relievers and drugs to lessen swelling around the tumor, and relieve pressure on the spinal cord.. Early diagnosis and treatment can produce a higher success rate. Long-term survival depends on the tumors type, location, and size. Surgery to remove thebone around the spinal cord can ease pressure on the spinal nerves and nervepathways, which will usually ease pain and other symptoms; however, it may make walking more difficult. Physical therapy and rehabilitation may help.. Since spinal cord tumors usually are caused by spread of cancer that has first appeared ...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows the best visualization of soft tissue lesions, and is especially useful for diagnosing spinal cord lesions, such as IVDD, cancer, syringomyelia, and arachnoid cysts. MRI is non-invasive, but does require significant time to perform, and in general is less readily available to veterinary patients. Because of the time required, scanning of a large area (such as the thoracolumbar spine) in a large dog can be problematic. MRI is generally reserved for cases where CT/myelogram is inconclusive or for suspected intramedullary spinal cord tumors, lumbosacral disease, brachial plexus neoplasia or primary brain abnormalities.. Treatment. The decision to treat intervertebral disk disease medically or surgically depends on many factors, including speed of onset and progression of the disease, stage of the disease, response to medication, proximity of an experienced surgeon, and financial ability of the owner. A veterinarian experienced in management of all aspects of ...
This article reviews the MRI and clinical findings in 70 spinal cord metastases; 20% of patients had multiple metastases and 8% were asymptomatic. Spinal cord metastases were the initial clinical presentation in 20% of patients. Nearly all metastases showed contrast enhancement and had extensive edema. Cysts and hemorrhage were, however, uncommon and nearly 60% of patients had other metastases to the CNS or that were seen in studies in other organs. Accompanying pial metastases were also common. ...

Spinal tumors are neoplasms located in the spinal cord. Extradural tumors are more common than intradural neoplasms. Depending on their location, the spinal cord tumors can be: Extradural - outside the dura mater lining (most common) Intradural - part of the dura Intramedullary - inside the spinal cord Extramedullary- inside the dura, but outside the spinal cord Extradural tumors are mostly metastases from primary cancers elsewhere (commonly breast, prostate and lung cancer). Intradural tumours can be classified as intramedullary (within the spinal parenchyma) or extramedullary (within the dura, but outside the spinal parenchyma). Extramedullary tumours are more common than intramedullary tumours. Common extramedullary tumours include meningiomas, schwannomas, extramedullary ependymomas, haemangioblastomas, while intramedullary tumours include astrocytomas and intramedullary ependymomas. Pain is the most common symptom at presentation. The symptoms seen are due to spinal nerve compression and ...

Like the brain, the spinal cord is part of the central nervous system which controls all the functions and senses of the body. Tumors affecting the spinal cord are rare. Not all spinal cord tumors are cancer, as the tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors do not contain cancer cells and once removed, rarely grow back. However, benign tumors of the central nervous system can also cause serious health problems and may become malignant. Malignant tumors are cancerous. They grow quickly and invade surrounding tissue and are usually life-threatening ...

Neuro-Oncology Program provides specialty oncology care to children from birth through young adulthood. Brain and central nervous system tumors are the second most common cancers in children, making up about 26 percent of childhood cancers. Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors There are many types of brain tumors, and the treatment and outlook for each is different. Brain and spinal cord tumors in children tend to be different from those in adults. They often form in different places, develop from different types of cell types and may have different treatment and prognosis (outlook). Most brain tumors in children often start in the lower parts of the brain, such as the cerebellum or brain stem. They can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred or double vision, dizziness, seizures, trouble walking or handling objects, and other symptoms. Spinal cord tumors are less common than brain tumors in both children and adults.. Multi-Specialty Neuro-Oncology Care Team ...

Category General Spine Tara L. Sabby, MD Jonathan M. Morris, MD John T. Wald, MD Amy L. Kotsenas, MD Purpose Chronic adhesive arachnoiditis (CAA) is a rare entity with potentially devastating clinical consequences. The imaging appearance of interstitial edema and cord swelling due to intradural adhesions may mimic intramedullary spinal cord tumor. The purpose of this presentation is to review the most common clinical causes of CAA and describe the MRI and myelographic imaging appearance of CAA in order to increase radiologist awareness of this challenging diagnosis. We present 29 patients with the common imaging features of advanced CAA in order to better characterize and aid in the detection of this disorder. Materials & Methods At our institution, we have encountered 29 patients since 1995 who have presented with imaging features and clinical diagnosis of severe CAA. A retrospective chart review was performed with attention to clinical presentation, initial differential diagnosis, any ...

Primary spinal melanoma is a rare lesion, which occurs throughout the cranial and spinal regions, however, is primarily observed in the middle or lower thoracic spine. The clinical features of primary spinal melanoma are complex and unspecific, resulting in a high misdiagnosis rate. In the present case report, a rare case of spinal melanoma exhibiting the dural tail sign and mimicking spinal meningioma is reported. The initial diagnosis, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), was unclear. Thus, melanin-containing tumors and spinal meningioma should have been considered in the differential diagnosis. The tumor was completely resected using a standard posterior midline approach, which was followed by chemotherapy. Subsequent to the surgery, the patient was discharged with improved motor capacity and a follow-up MRI scan showed no recurrence after six months. The present study demonstrates that it is critical for neurosurgeons to focus on increasing the accuracy of initial diagnoses in order to ...

What is a spinal tumor?. A spinal tumor is an abnormal growth of cells in the spine. If any cells in the spine grow and multiply abnormally to cause a spinal tumor, this is called a primary tumor. If abnormal cells have spread to the spine from a cancerous tumor in another part of the body, this is called a secondary tumor or a metastasis.. Benign and malignant spinal tumors. Benign spinal tumors are non-cancerous. They are always primary tumors (that is, they start in the spine and they do not spread into and invade the tissue surrounding them in the same way as malignant tumors. Benign tumors can grow to a considerable size, creating pressure on and damaging the tissue surrounding them in the spine. Benign spinal tumors usually occur inside the membrane surrounding the spinal cord and nerves (the dura). Tumors within the dura are called intradural tumors. Benign spinal tumors are not often found in the bones of the spine (the vertebrae). Consequently, they rarely disturb the strength of the ...
Abdallah et al. retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 38 primary spinal myxopapillary ependymoma cases who underwent surgery at 2 neurosurgical centers spanning 16 years, from 2004 to 2019. All pediatric cases (patient age ,18 years) who were diagnosed with MPE and re-presented with spinal seeding/drop metastases (SSM) were selected as the core sample for this study. Relevant literature was briefly reviewed.. Three pediatric MPE cases (2 females and 1 male) experienced SSM. The mean age at first presentation was 12.0 ± 1.0 years. The mean preoperative course was 2.9 ± 1.2 months. The predominant location was the lumbar spine in 2 tumors (both originated from filum terminale [FT]). Two tumors were located intradural intramedullary. Gross-total resection was achieved in 2 patients. No patient had neurofibromatosis type 2. No adjuvant treatment was given after the first surgery. The mean period between the first diagnosis and diagnosis of SSM was 44.0 ± 31.5 months. The location of SSM ...

AU - Dickman, Curtis A.. PY - 2006/7. Y1 - 2006/7. N2 - The management of spinal meningiomas with extensive involvement of the dura mater is controversial. The principal difficulty in performing a resection is the potential for complications associated with this approach. The authors present the case of a pregnant 35-year-old woman in whom bilateral lower-extremity numbness, weakness, gait ataxia, and myelopathy developed. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a recurrent thoracic meningioma with extensive infiltration of the dura mater. Durectomy, complete resection, and reconstruction were performed. The patient has not experienced a recurrence 21 months after her treatment. This case illustrates that thoracic spinal meningiomas with extensive dural involvement can be resected safely with a complete durectomy. The ...
In 2017, a 27-year-old male patient presented to us with complaints of severe paroxysmal and continuous right- sided facial pain. He described his pain as a constant severe burning sensation with intermittent intensive lancinating (sharp) pain in the distribution of all three branches of the trigeminal nerve. This paroxysmal pain could be provoked by a light touch of the skin surface, chewing, and toothbrushing. This burning facial pain with short lasting episode of eyelid ptosis on the right side started in 2014 and later he also started experiencing severe paroxysmal pain that did not respond to oral carbamazepine but improved with pregabalin (75 mg). Over the years, the pain worsened and the medication dose had to be increased. In 2016, a Gamma Knife radiosurgery (90 Gy) was performed in another institution, targeting the right trigeminal nerve root, but no pain improvement was observed during subsequent 15 months. By that time, the patient was taking pregabalin (600 mg) with partial control ...

New research by Xinzhong Dongs lab published in the current issue of Neuron demonstrates that sensitized TRPV1 activity at the central projections of primary spinal cord sensory neurons, spurred by serotonergic inputs from brainstem descending fibers, contributes to nerve injured induced pain. Kim et al. developed a novel imaging technique which allowed them to specifically monitor neuronal activities of sensory nerve fibers in the skin and spinal cord. In collaboration with Dr. Feng Weis group at University of Maryland using this technique, they discovered the functional interaction in the spinal cord between the central terminals of primary sensory neurons and nerve fibers descending from the brainstem through a signaling pathway from serotonin (5-HT) to TRPV1. This study also raises the prospect that either a TRPV1 or 5-HT receptor antagonist delivered to the spinal cord might stop pain signals that result in chronic pain.

A spinal tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord and/or spinal column. These cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, seemingly unchecked by the mechanisms that control normal cells. Spinal tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Primary tumors originate in the spine or spinal cord, and metastatic or secondary tumors result from cancer spreading from another site to the spine.. Spinal tumors may be referred to by the region of the spine in which they occur. These basic areas are cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacrum. Additionally, they also are classified by their location in the spine into three major groups: intradural-extramedullary, intramedullary and extradural.. ...

Intradural extramedullary presentation is rarely described except for those located at the terminal filum or conus medullaris [6 ...
Ultimately, 119 patients (mean age 59.9 ± 14.8 years, range 25-85 years) were included for final analysis. The sex distribution revealed a female predominance, consisting of 70.6% females, with a female-to-male ratio of 2.5:1. The mean follow-up was 25.4 ± 37.1 months. The most frequently involved location was the thoracic region (68.9%), followed by the cervical region (24.4%). Furthermore, in more than 70% of patients, the tumor affected only 1 spinal level and in 28.6%, 2 spinal levels; multilevel extension of more than 2 levels was only seen in 1 patient. The most common symptom that led to patient presentation was sensory deficit (34.5%), followed by gait instability (26.9%) and motor deficit (21%). Back pain and radicular pain were apparent in 27.7% of patients. Regarding initial symptoms and complaints, almost 72% of patients revealed a good status according to their ECOG grade (0 and 1); ambulatory and capable of all self-care but unable to carry out any work activities induced by ...

Dr. Perin is one of the few neurosurgeons in the world to perform endoscopic thoracic spinal surgery. This technique results in less post-operative pain and a faster recovery time for the patient. Dr. Perin is the author of the textbook Thoracic Spine Surgery, which is used in medical schools around the world. Thoracoscopic spinal surgery is a minimally invasive surgery in the thoracic spine. Minimally invasive techniques reduce access related tissue trauma, resulting in less post-operative pain and reduced shoulder girdle disability (associated with the open thoracotomy). Since there is a shorter hospital stay and shorter post-operative recuperation, patients return to work and other day-day activities sooner.. Dr.Perin has a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of Spinal cord tumors such as Ependymomas and Astrocytomas, as well as tumors of the peripheral nerves in the arms, legs and within the chest cavity (Schwannomas).. Dr.Perin is one of the original neurosurgeons to recognize ...

Because symptoms of ALS can be similar to those of a wide variety of other, more treatable diseases or disorders, appropriate tests must be conducted to exclude the possibility of other conditions. One of these tests is electromyography (EMG), a special recording technique that detects electrical activity in muscles. Certain EMG findings can support the diagnosis of ALS. Another common test measures nerve conduction velocity (NCV). Specific abnormalities in the NCV results may suggest, for example, that the patient has a form of peripheral neuropathy (damage to peripheral nerves) or myopathy (muscle disease) rather than ALS. The physician may order magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a noninvasive procedure that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to take detailed images of the brain and spinal cord. Although these MRI scans are often normal in patients with ALS, they can reveal evidence of other problems that may be causing the symptoms, such as a spinal cord tumor, multiple sclerosis, a ...
