Intervertebral Disc Degeneration
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal Cord Diseases
Spinal Nerve Roots
Paired bundles of NERVE FIBERS entering and leaving the SPINAL CORD at each segment. The dorsal and ventral nerve roots join to form the mixed segmental spinal nerves. The dorsal roots are generally afferent, formed by the central projections of the spinal (dorsal root) ganglia sensory cells, and the ventral roots are efferent, comprising the axons of spinal motor and PREGANGLIONIC AUTONOMIC FIBERS.
Spinal Cord Neoplasms
Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.
Spinal Cord Compression
Acute and chronic conditions characterized by external mechanical compression of the SPINAL CORD due to extramedullary neoplasm; EPIDURAL ABSCESS; SPINAL FRACTURES; bony deformities of the vertebral bodies; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations vary with the anatomic site of the lesion and may include localized pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence, and impotence.
A progressive, degenerative joint disease, the most common form of arthritis, especially in older persons. The disease is thought to result not from the aging process but from biochemical changes and biomechanical stresses affecting articular cartilage. In the foreign literature it is often called osteoarthrosis deformans.

Spinal epidural abscess associated with epidural catheterization: report of a case and a review of the literature. (1/1040)We describe a 53-year-old man who developed a catheter-related epidural abscess 8 days after left upper lobectomy for lung cancer. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was detected in a culture of the epidural pus. Magnetic resonance imaging was essential for the diagnosis of epidural abscess and for determining the extent of spread. The patient was treated by laminectomy and administration of appropriate antibiotics, with almost complete recovery, except for urinary retention. A literature search yielded 29 additional cases of catheter-related epidural abscess. The median duration of catheterization was 4 days and the median time to onset of the clinical symptoms after catheter placement was 8 days. Eleven of the 30 patients had some underlying disorders, including malignancy or herpes zoster, or were receiving steroids. Nine of the 10 patients with thoracic epidural abscess had persistent neurological deficits, whereas 12 of the 15 patients with lumbar epidural abscess showed a full recovery after treatment. Surgical decompression was not required in six patients without significant neurological deficits, who recovered following antibiotic treatment (four patients) or percutaneous drainage (two patients). Thoracic catheters are associated with a disproportionately high incidence of epidural abscess and persistent neurological sequelae following treatment. (+info)
A five-year assessment of controlled trials of in-patient and out-patient treatment and of plaster-of-Paris jackets for tuberculosis of the spine in children on standard chemotherapy. Studies in Masan and Pusan, Korea. Fifth report of the Medical Research Council Working Party on tuberculosis of the spine. (2/1040)In two centres in Korea 350 patients with a diagnosis of tuberculosis of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine were allocated at random: in Masan to in-patient rest in bed (IP) for six months followed by out-patient treatment or to ambulatory out-patient treatment (OP) from the start; in Pusan to out-patient treatment with a plaster-of-Paris jacket (J) for nine months or to ambulatory treatment without any support (No J). All patients recieved chemotherapy with PAS with isoniazid for eighteen months, either supplemented with streptomycin for the first three months (SPH) or without this supplement (PH), by random allocation. The main analysis of this report concerns 299 patients (eighty-three IP, eighty-three OP, sixty-three J, seventy No J; 143 SPH, 156 PH). Pre-treatment factors were similar in both centres except that the patients in Pusan had, on average, less extensive lesions although in a greater proportion the disease was radiographically active. One patient (J/SPH) died with active spinal disease and three (all No J/SPH) with paraplegia. A fifth patient (IP/PH) who died from cardio respiratory failure also had pulmonary tuberculosis. Twenty-three patients required operation and/or additional chemotherapy for the spinal lesion. A sinus or clinically evident abscess was either present initially or developed during treatment in 41 per cent of patients. Residual lesions persisted in ten patients (four IP, two OP, one J, three No J; six SPH, four PH) at five years. Thirty-two patients had paraparesis on admission or developing later. Complete resolution occurred in twenty on the allocated regimen and in eight after operation or additional chemotherapy or both. Of the remaining four atients, all of whom had operation and additional chemotherapy, three died and one still had paraparesis at five years. Of 295 patients assessed at five years 89 per cent had a favourable status. The proportions of the patients responding favourably were similar in the IP (91 per cent) and OP (89 per cent) series, in the J (90 per cent) and No J (84 per cent) series and in the SPH (86 per cent) and PH (92 per cent) series.

Extradural inflammation associated with annular tears: demonstration with gadolinium-enhanced lumbar spine MRI. (3/1040)Annular tears are manifest on MRI as the high-intensity zone (HIZ) or as annular enhancement. Patients with annular tears may experience low back pain with radiation into the lower limb in the absence of nerve root compression. Inflammation of nerve roots from leak of degenerative nuclear material through full-thickness annular tears is a proposed mechanism for such leg pain. The aim of this study is to illustrate the appearance of extradural enhancement adjacent to annular tears in patients being investigated for low back pain with radiation into the lower limb(s). Sagittal T1- and T2-weighted spin echo and axial T1-weighted spin echo sequences were obtained in eight patients being investigated for low back and leg pain. In all patients, the T1-weighted sequences were repeated following intravenous gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA). Annular tears were identified at 12 sites in eight patients. Extradural inflammation appeared as a region of intermediate signal intensity replacing the fat between the posterior disc margin and the theca, which enhanced following Gd-DTPA. The inflammatory change was always associated with an annular tear, and in four cases directly involved the nerve root. Enhancement of the nerve root was seen in two cases. The findings may be relevant in the diagnosis of chemical radiculopathy secondary to inflammation at the site of an annular leak from a degenerating disc. (+info)
Can autologous bone culture predict spinal fusion capacity? (4/1040)The capacity of the individual patient to initiate osteoblast proliferation as a predictor for successful lumbar spinal fusion has not yet been reported. The objectives of this study were, first, to analyze the relationship between in vitro osteoblast proliferation and clinical bony fusion in the individual patient in order to predict the fusion outcome and, second, to measure the effect of preoperative tobacco smoking on osteoblast proliferation. Sixty-one patients (mean age 46 years) underwent posterolateral lumbar fusion in the period 1994-1995. Thirty-eight patients received CD pedicle screw implants and 23 received posterolateral fusions alone. During surgery, autogenous iliac bone was harvested and 1 g of trabecular bone without blood or bone marrow was then isolated for cell culturing. The cultures were classified as excellent (confluence within 4 weeks), good (confluence between 4 and 6 weeks) and poor (no or poor growth). Spine fusion was evaluated by two independent observers from plain anterior-posterior, lateral, and flexion/extension radiographs taken 1 year postoperatively, and the functional outcome was measured by the Dallas Pain Questionnaire (DPQ). Twenty-three patients had excellent, 19 good, and 19 poor in vitro osteoblast proliferation. Bony fusion was obtained in 77% of patients: 83% in the CD instrumentation group and 70% in the non-instrumentation group (NS). There was no significant correlation between osteoblast proliferation and spinal fusion or functional outcomes when analyzing the CD instrumentation and non-instrumentation groups together or separately. Elderly patients had a significantly poorer osteoblast proliferation than younger patients (P < 0.008). Preoperative tobacco consumption had no discernible effect on osteoblast proliferation, and no correlation between smoking and fusion was found. Further refinement of autologous osteoblast culturing may provide a biological tool for selection of patients who require biological enhancement of their bone fusion capacity. The poorer osteoblast proliferation related to advanced age supports the important negative biological influence of age on bony fusion. However, with more sensitive testing and better discrimination, other results are possible - or can in any event not be excluded. (+info)
Pulmonary embolism caused by acrylic cement: a rare complication of percutaneous vertebroplasty. (5/1040)A pulmonary embolus of acrylic cement was present in a 41-year-old woman with Langerhans' cell vertebral histiocytosis (LCH) after percutaneous vertebroplasty. Chest radiograph and CT confirmed pulmonary infarction and the presence of cement in the pulmonary arteries. She was treated with anticoagulants, and responded favorably. This rare complication occurred because perivertebral venous migration was not recognized during vertebroplasty. Adequate preparation of cement and biplane fluoroscopy are recommended for vertebroplasty. (+info)
Fungal spinal osteomyelitis in the immunocompromised patient: MR findings in three cases. (6/1040)The MR imaging findings of fungal spinal osteomyelitis in three recipients of organ transplants showed hypointensity of the vertebral bodies on T1-weighted sequences in all cases. Signal changes and enhancement extended into the posterior elements in two cases. Multiple-level disease was present in two cases (with a total of five intervertebral disks involved in three cases). All cases lacked hyperintensity within the disks on T2-weighted images. In addition, the intranuclear cleft was preserved in four of five affected disks at initial MR imaging. MR features in Candida and Aspergillus spondylitis that are distinct from pyogenic osteomyelitis include absence of disk hyperintensity and preservation of the intranuclear cleft on T2-weighted images. Prompt recognition of these findings may avoid delay in establishing a diagnosis and instituting treatment of opportunistic osteomyelitis in the immunocompromised patient. (+info)
Segmental spinal dysgenesis: neuroradiologic findings with clinical and embryologic correlation. (7/1040)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)
Epidurography and therapeutic epidural injections: technical considerations and experience with 5334 cases. (8/1040)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Even in experienced hands, blind epidural steroid injections result in inaccurate needle placement in up to 30% of cases. The use of fluoroscopy and radiologic contrast material provides confirmation of accurate needle placement within the epidural space. We describe our technique and experience with contrast epidurography and therapeutic epidural steroid injections, and review the frequency of systemic and neurologic complications. METHODS: Epidural steroid injections were performed in 5489 consecutive outpatients over a period of 5 1/2 years by three procedural neuroradiologists. In 155 cases (2.8%), the injections were done without contrast material owing to either confirmed or suspected allergy. The remaining 5334 injections were performed after epidurography through the same needle. Patients and referring clinicians were instructed to contact us first regarding complications or any problem potentially related to the injection. In addition, the referring clinicians' offices were instructed to contact us regarding any conceivable procedure-related complications. RESULTS: Only 10 patients in the entire series required either oral (n = 5) or intravenous (n = 5) sedation. Four complications (0.07%) required either transport to an emergency room (n = 2) or hospitalization (n = 2). None of the complications required surgical intervention, and all were self-limited with regard to symptoms and imaging manifestations. Fluoroscopic needle placement and epidurography provided visual confirmation of accurate needle placement, distribution of the injectate, and depiction of epidural space disease. CONCLUSION: Epidurography in conjunction with epidural steroid injections provides for safe and accurate therapeutic injection and is associated with an exceedingly low frequency of untoward sequelae. It can be performed safely on an outpatient basis and does not require sedation or special monitoring. (+info)
Cervical spine disorder - Wikipedia
Cervical spine disorders are illnesses that affect the cervical spine, which is made up of the upper first seven vertebrae, encasing and shielding the spinal cord. This fragment of the spine starts from the region above the shoulder blades and ends by supporting and connecting the Skull. The cervical spine contains many different anatomic compositions, including muscles, bones, ligaments, and joints. All of these structures have nerve endings that can detect painful problems when they occur. Such nerves supply muscular control and sensations to the skull and arms while correspondingly providing our bodies with flexibility and motion. However, if the cervical spine is injured it can cause many minor or traumatic problems, and although these injuries vary specifically they are more commonly known as cervical spine disorders as a whole. It is through upper frontal chest discomfort (also known as cervical angina) and scapular pains which signs of cervical spine disorders are shown. In 1937 a ...

Genomic Spine Disorders What Does The Future Hold For A Patient? - The Burton Report
Genomic spine disorders have a basis in heredity which is something beyond the control of the individual. Typically, the patient with a underlying genomic spine disorder can, however, determine their future progress based on their willingness to commit to self-administered spine health programs. In this regard the keys to success involve the following:. Number one on the list is to not be a cigarette smoker. It has been well established that cigarette smokers have up to a 3 to 4 times higher incidence of disc degeneration than normal individuals. Number two on the list is good nutrition and a daily self-administered health program involving optimal body weight associated with good muscle tone and flexibility based on exercise, particularly swimming, the maintenance of good core body strength, the frequent utilization of safe spinal traction and exercise devices such as a Roman Chair:. Remarkably, there are many professional athleteswho have underline genomic spine disorders. These are the ...

Spine Disorders in Children | Mount Sinai - New York
Sometimes we discover spine disorders at birth due to abnormal leg or bladder function, an obvious physical deformity of the spine, or pain. Usually, we can see the spinal cord of children born with spina bifida or myelomeningocele on the surface of their lower back. We can also detect a spine disorder if your child has a fatty mass deep within the skin in the lower back, a small hole, patch of hair, or skin discoloration in the lower back, or malformations of the urologic and digestive tracts. If a child has a spine disorder left untreated, the child may develop difficulties walking or urinating, or experience pain in the lower back or legs.. To diagnose the underlying cause of your childs symptoms, your doctor will conduct a thorough physical examination, including an examination of all organ systems. Your physician may order X-rays, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging to confirm the diagnosis.. ...

What Is Juvenile Discogenic Disease? - The Burton Report
This study published was published in the peer-reviewed journal Spine by Kenneth Heithoff and associates in 1994. These physicians were the pioneers who first brought disease entities such as Juvenile Discogenic Disease (JDD) to the attention of the medical establishment through spine imaging. Heithoff, who founded the Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) in Minneapolis, was also one of the first radiologists in the United States to apply CT as well as MRI imaging for the purpose of identifying genomic spine disorders. It continues to be clear that JDD is but one part of the spectrum of genomic spine disorders and is frequently seen in association with other congenital abnormalities (the Zebra Phenomenon principle).. The authors experience confirms that the majority of all patients (most particularly young individuals) presenting with significant back complaints have some form of an underlying genomic spine disorder. It is now clear that about 80% of patients being advised to have spinal ...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) under hemodialysis (HD) are at greater risks of infectious spondylitis (IS), but there is no reliable predictor that facilitate early detection of this relatively rare and insidious disease. METHODS: A retrospective review of the medical records from patients with ESRD under HD over a 12-year period was performed at a tertiary teaching hospital, and those with a first-time diagnosis of IS were identified. A 1:4 propensity score-matched case-control study was carried out, and baseline characteristics, underlying diseases, and laboratory data were compared between the study group and the control group, one month before the date of diagnosis or the index date respectively. RESULTS: A total of 16 patients with IS were compared with 64 controls. After adjustment, recent access operation (odds ratio [OR], 13.27; 95% confidence interval [CI], 3.53 to 49.91; p < 0.001), degenerative spinal disease (OR, 12.87; 95% CI, 1.89 to 87.41; p = 0.009), HD ...
Spinal disease - Wikipedia
A spinal tumor is when unusual tissue begins growing and spreading in the spinal columns or spinal cords. The unusual tissue builds up from abnormal cells that multiply quickly in a specific region. Tumors generally are broken down into categories known as benign, meaning non-cancerous, or malignant, meaning cancerous, and also primary or secondary. Primary spinal tumors begin in either the spinal cord or spinal column, whereas secondary spinal tumors begin elsewhere and spread to the spinal region. Symptoms for spinal tumors may vary due to factors such as the type of tumor, the region of the spine, and the health of the patient. Back pain is the most common symptom and it can be a problem if the pain is severe, has a time frame that lasts longer than it would for a normal injury, and becomes worse while laying down or at rest. Other symptoms, excluding back pains, are loss of muscle function, loss of bowel or bladder function, pain in the legs, scoliosis, or even unusual sensations in the ...

Have you tried acupuncture? It works! At the very least it will help with your pain and help promote healing. How much water do you drink daily? Do you drink a lot of caffeine? I am asking this because dessication is dryness and dehydration is a major cause of pain. I am not saying it is THE cause, but if you arent drinking at least 8-10 cups of water a day it may be making your symptoms worse. Allopathic medicine is atrocious IMO when it comes to dealing with back pain. Surgery helps MAYBE 40% of people and often causes MORE problems post surgery...it should always be a last resort!

Impact of Anti-Inflammatory Drugs on Pyogenic Vertebral Osteomyelitis: A Prospective Cohort Study - Université Francois...
Objective. Pyogenic vertebral osteomyelitis (PVO) are frequently misdiagnosed and patients often receive anti-inflammatory drugs for their back pain. We studied the impact of these medications. Methods. We performed a prospective study enrolling patients with PVO and categorized them depending on their drugs intake. Then, we compared diagnosis delay, clinical presentation at hospitalization, incidence of complications, and cure rate. Results. In total, 79 patients were included. Multivariate analysis found no correlation between anti-inflammatory drug intake and diagnosis delay, clinical presentation, complications, or outcome. Conclusion. Anti-inflammatory drugs intake does not affect diagnostic delay, severity at diagnosis, or complications of PVO.

Neurosurgical Consultants: Degenerative Spinal Conditions: Thoratic Herniated Disc
THORACIC HERNIATED DISC. Herniated Discs in the Thoracic region are relatively uncommon compared to the Cervical or Lumbar regions. The incidence in the USA is approximately is 1 in 1 million individuals per year with the Thoracic level accounting for 0.25-0.75% of all Disc Herniations. UNIQUE ANATOMICAL FEATURES. The Thoracic Spine is relatively inflexible and functions primarily to provide upright posture and to assist in weight-bearing of the Trunk, Head, and Upper Extremities. The Vertebral Bodies are taller posteriorly than anteriorly, resulting in an anterior concavity (called the Thoracic Kyphosis.). The Thoracic Spine is considered to be a more stable structure (compared to the Cervical and Lumbar regions) as a result of the connections of the Sternum (in the front of the Chest) and the Ribs which articulate with each Thoracic Vertebra. This stability also translates to the projected natural history of Herniated Thoracic Discs which are also unusually stable compared to Herniated ...

Determination of the Oswestry Disability Index score equivalent to a satisfactory symptom state in patients undergoing...
The achievement of a given change score on a valid outcome instrument is commonly used to indicate whether a clinically relevant change has occurred after spine surgery. However, the achievement of such a change score can be dependent on baseline values and does not necessarily indicate whether the patient is satisfied with the current state. The achievement of an absolute score equivalent to a patient acceptable symptom state (PASS) may be a more stringent measure to indicate treatment success.This study aimed to estimate the score on the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI, version 2.1a; 0-100) corresponding to a PASS in patients who had undergone surgery for degenerative disorders of the lumbar spine.This is a cross-sectional study of diagnostic accuracy using follow-up data from an international spine surgery registry.The sample includes 1,288 patients with degenerative lumbar spine disorders who had undergone elective spine surgery, registered in the EUROSPINE Spine Tango Spine Surgery Registry.The main

Neurosurgical Consultants: Spine Disorders: Congenital & Developmental Disorders: Cervical Spine Surgery
Emerging Scientific Studies. Several scientific reports regarding Artificial Cervical Joint Devices have become available. One such initial long term follow-up for Artificial Disc Implantation was reported at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting held in San Francisco on 26 April 2006. The report was based upon a European Multi-center Study that was tabulated in Leuven, Belgium and consisted of 67 patients, some of whom have been monitored for up to 9 years. The authors identified several unanticipated consequences of the artificial disc that was used in this study (the Bryan-type device shown in Figures 15 & 16 above.) Whereas it was hoped that progression of Spondylosis (Bone Spur formation) at the adjacent Cervical Levels would be markedly reduced, if not aborted entirely, in actual fact there was progression of the Spondylosis at the adjacent level(s) in 20 of 38 patients (52.6%).. It appears that the device designers and manufacturers, have ...

spinal disorder [Operative Neurosurgery]
Spinal disorders are widespread and affect always more people thus the entire Civil Society; back pain is the second reason responsible for absenteeism from work after the common flux. While the constant drive for the development of always more sophisticated spine surgery technologies is skyrocketing, there is no obvious additional healthcare benefit; spine surgery revision rate remains high - about 10-15% at 10 years. The global population is currently undergoing an upward shift in its age structure due to decreasing fertility rates and increasing life expectancy. As a result, clinicians worldwide will be required to manage an increasing number of spinal disorders specific to the elderly and the aging of the spine. Elderly individuals pose unique challenges to health care systems and to spinal physicians as these patients typically have an increased number of medical comorbidities, reduced bone density mass, more severe spinal degeneration and a greater propensity to falls 1).

FAQs - Invision Health
When should I consider surgery?. Surgery is indicated when conservative therapy fails, the patient becomes dysfunctional and/or the patient is experiencing progressive neurological problems.. Surgery is typically the last resort when it comes to treating spinal conditions in the neck or back. If various minimally invasive and non-operative treatments have been attempted without improvement and the patients condition worsens over time, then surgical treatment may be recommended. The decision for surgery should be individualized to the patient, the patients symptoms and the patients level of function.. Am I a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery?. The field of minimally invasive spine surgery continues to grow and many surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis. Certain conditions may require an in-patient/open procedure, such as a severe scoliosis, spinal tumors and some infections. Your surgeon will review all procedure options with you..

Practice-based commissioning for continence problems | Nursing in Practice
OAB is complex. The most widely known symptom is urge incontinence: having to rush to the toilet as soon as the warning of the need to pass urine, but often leaking before getting there. In most cases, the cause is unknown and may happen at any age, but it can also occur as a result of neurological and spinal diseases and trauma to the brain or spine. However, there is also urgency, which is the same need to rush to the toilet, but without actually leaking. The other parts of the syndrome are frequency (needing to pass urine more than the average five or six times a day, on a regular basis) and nocturia (needing to get up at night - once or twice a night is normal, especially in older people, but more than that is a problem).. Bedwetting ...
