Inflammation of the SPINE. This includes both arthritic and non-arthritic conditions.
Inflammation of a bone and its overlaying CARTILAGE.
Excision, in part or whole, of an INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.
A surgical procedure that entails removing all (laminectomy) or part (laminotomy) of selected vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and/or SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. Vertebral lamina is the thin flattened posterior wall of vertebral arch that forms the vertebral foramen through which pass the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Operative immobilization or ankylosis of two or more vertebrae by fusion of the vertebral bodies with a short bone graft or often with diskectomy or laminectomy. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p236; Dorland, 28th ed)

Anterior cervical locking plate-related complications; prevention and treatment recommendations. (1/172)

A retrospective study evaluating complications in 2,233 consecutive patients of subaxial cervical disorders treated with an anterior cervical locking plate was performed, and recommendations for prevention and treatment were made. The average length of follow-up was 1.3 years. Any loosening or breaking of the plates and screws or malpositions that threatened tracheoesophageal or neurovascular structures were defined as the complications. There were 239 cases (10.7%) with different kinds of complications. The complications included oblique plating in 56 cases in which the screw could irritate the nerve root. Screws were driven into the disc space in four cases, which ultimately led to plate loosening. Screws penetrated the endplate or passed excessively close to it producing a triangle fracture in 19 cases. Loosening or breaking of the plate and the screw was found in 115 cases. These phenomena were always associated with non-union. Three oesophageal perforations occurred and conservative treatments proved effective. Finally, overlong plates impinged on the adjacent level in 14 cases and promoted disc degeneration ultimately leading to revision surgery. Good training and careful operation may help to decrease the complication rate. Most hardware complications are not symptomatic and can be treated conservatively. Only a few of them need immediate reoperation.  (+info)

Posterior atlantoaxial subluxation due to os odontoideum combined with cervical spondylotic myelopathy: a case report. (2/172)

In patients with os odontoideum and posterior atlantoaxial subluxation are extremely rare. No reports have described posterior atlantoaxial subluxation associated with os odontoideum combined with cervical spondylotic canal stenosis, both of which require surgical treatment. We report one case of a 75-year-old female who underwent arthrodesis between the occiput and C3 using a hook-and-rod system and also a double-door laminoplasty from levels C3 to C7. The claw mechanism was applied between the C2 lamina and the C3 inferior articular process. The posterior atlantoaxial subluxation was completely reduced by the method that the rod gradually pushed the posterior arch of C1 anteriorly during connection to the occiput. Twelve months after surgery, the patient showed improvement in preoperative clumsiness and gait disturbance, and the latest plain radiographs showed solid osseous fusion, with no loss of correction or instrumentation failure.  (+info)

Bilateral cervical spondylolysis in a young Chinese woman presenting with a neck injury. (3/172)

Cervical spondylolysis is an uncommon entity. It is important to recognise its characteristic radiological features and differentiate it from acute cervical fractures or dislocations in patients with neck injuries. We report the relevant clinical and radiological findings seen in a young Chinese woman managed in our hospital after a neck injury who was ultimately diagnosed with bilateral cervical spondylolysis with spondylolisthesis at C6.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of cervical spondylosis in the elderly: surgical outcomes, risk factors, and complications. (4/172)

The incidence of cervical spondylosis in the elderly is increasing with the higher proportion of elderly individuals among the Japanese population. The present study retrospectively analyzed the clinical and radiological features of this clinical entity in 107 patients with cervical spondylosis aged 70 years or older surgically treated between 1995 and 2005. The patients were divided into Group 1 (n = 60) aged between 70 and 74 years, and Group 2 (n = 47) 75 years or older. Patients with localized compression within 2 levels responsible for the neurological symptoms underwent anterior fusion, and patients with a narrow spinal canal were treated by laminoplasty. The pre- and postoperative neurological status (Neurosurgical Cervical Spine Scale) and postoperative complications were compared. More patients in Group 2 required laminoplasty but most patients underwent single-level anterior fusion. There was no statistically significant difference in the surgical results. Group 2 had a much higher ratio of anterior fusion at the C3-4 level. Many of the aged patients had multiple risk factors. Surgical decompression for cervical spondylosis is beneficial even in elderly patients. Single-level anterior fusion to treat the lesion most responsible for the symptoms is the least invasive choice. Elderly patients tend to present with multiple risk factors so require careful perioperative management.  (+info)

Objective. The optimal surgical treatment for multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (MCSM) remains controversial. This study compared the outcomes of three surgical approaches for MSCM treatment, focusing on the efficacy and safety of a combined approach.. Methods. This retrospective study included 153 consecutive MCSM patients (100 men, 53 women; mean age +/- standard deviation, 55.7 +/- 9.4 years) undergoing operations involving >= 3 intervertebral segments. The patients were divided into three groups according to surgical approach: anterior (n = 19), posterior (n = 76), and combined (n = 58). We assessed demographic variables, perioperative parameters, and clinical outcomes >= 12 months after surgery (20.5 +/- 7.6 months), including Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) score, improvement, recovery rate, and complications.. Results. The anterior group had the most favorable preoperative conditions, including the highest preoperative JOA score (12.95 +/- 1.86, rho = 0.046). In contrast, ...
Study Design: Retrospective study.. Objective: To investigate the clinical effectiveness of polytheretherketone (PEEK) cages-assisted anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) to treat cervical spondylosis with sympathetic symptoms.. Summary of Background Data: The diagnosis and treatment of cervical spondylosis with sympathetic symptoms has remained controversial. To date, few reports have focused on the surgical efficacy of cervical spondylosis with sympathetic symptoms.. Methods: Retrospective analysis was undertaken for 39 patients who were diagnosed as cervical spondylosis with sympathetic symptoms and underwent ACDF with PEEK cages. They were followed up for at least 1 year. The mean follow-up was 15.6 months. Radiographs obtained before surgery, after surgery, and at the final follow-up were assessed for quality of fusion. The sympathetic symptoms including vertigo, headache, tinnitus, nausea and vomiting, heart throb, hypomnesia, and gastroenterologic discomfort were scored by ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Thoracic spondylosis. T2 - experience of 4 cases.. AU - Tseng, S. H.. AU - Lin, S. M.. AU - Tu, Y. K.. PY - 1990/7/1. Y1 - 1990/7/1. N2 - Thoracic spondylosis is relatively uncommon compared to cervical or lumbar spondylosis. It may cause spinal canal stenosis and result in radiculopathy, neurogenic claudication, and most commonly, myelopathy. We present our experience in the management of 4 cases with symptomatic thoracic spondylosis. The lower thoracic spine was involved in all 4 cases. The pathological changes are almost the same as in cervical or lumbar spondylosis except that ossification of ligamenta flava is more common in thoracic spondylosis. The ossified ligamenta flava may adhere tightly to the dura mater, and therefore increase the difficulty of operation. The results of decompressive laminectomy for thoracic spondylosis were acceptable.. AB - Thoracic spondylosis is relatively uncommon compared to cervical or lumbar spondylosis. It may cause spinal canal stenosis and ...
A Brief Description. Spondylosis is an ailing state of the vertebrae, the bony blocks of the spine, which become fixed and stiff as the resultant of some diseases. Osteophytes i.e. bone spurs, and intervertebral degeneration makes debilitating changes in the spine, which condition is known as Spondylosis. Changes occurring in the spine due to Spondylosis are known as Osteoarthritis also. There are certain conditions of this state, in the wake of which, some chronic and agonizing developments may occur. Spine is an organ, which cannot be transplanted like heart, liver or kidneys. Therefore caution has to be rendered while dealing with Spondylosis. The vertebrae, discs and spinal cord have a synchronized performance, the equilibrium of which will badly be affected in the case of Spondylosis.. Osteoarthritis is Spondylosis of the lumbar spine, where degenerative changes in the vertebral joints and discs; which act as a cushion between the vertebrae.. Neck (cervical spine), upper and middle portion ...
spine spondylosis - a disease that occurs due to degenerative changes of the individual vertebrae and intervertebral discs, thereby forming osteophytes and a narrowing of the spinal canal and intervertebral holes.Osteophytes (bony outgrowths) may eventually grow and reach the size of causing fusion of the adjacent vertebral bodies.In addition, the sharp edge osteophytes can irritate the nerves running close, causing the corresponding symptoms.. Spondylarthrosis thoracic spine is similar in its symptoms from spondylosis, mainly due to the fact that both of these diseases are due to a degenerative disease of the vertebrae.. reasons spondylosis spondylosis of the spine may develop due to many reasons, among them: ...
The following distribution of approaches in CSM procedures has been reported: 51%-60% for the anterior approach, 35% for the posterior approach, and a combined approach in the remaining cases [39]. A combined approach is generally used in cases with both ventral and dorsal compression of the thecal sac (Fig. 3) or if a patient with multilevel disease presents with kyphosis [40]. Fig. 3 depicts the postoperative radiograph of a patient with cervical canal stenosis from C3 to C6 with focal ventral compression at C4-5. This patient underwent anterior cervical discectomy with fusion at C4-5, followed by lateral mass screw fixation and laminectomy from C3 to C6 in the same sitting (one lower screw is in C5 and another at C6 because of fracture of one lateral mass during placement). A combined approach can be chosen in patients with significant ventral and dorsal osteophytic compression that cannot be handled holistically with single anterior or posterior surgery. In patients with severe osteoporosis, ...

spondylosis (spon-di-loh-sis) n. a spinal condition resulting from degeneration and flattening of the intervertebral discs in the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar regions. Symptoms include pain and restriction of movement. Treatment includes analgesics, NSAIDs, and physiotherapy; painful movements are prevented by wearing a neck orthosis (when the neck region is affected) or a lumbosacral corset (for the lower spine). Very severe cases sometimes require surgical fusion. Source for information on spondylosis: A Dictionary of Nursing dictionary.

Nondestructive repeated-measures in vitro flexibility tests were performed in human cadaveric cervical spines. Nonconstraining pure moments of up to 1.5 Nm were applied while recording three-dimensional angular motion stereophotogrammetrically at each level from C4-5 to C7-T1. Nine specimens underwent the three-level corpectomy/strut graft procedure and eight specimens the two-level corpectomy/discectomy strut graft procedure. Failures during testing eliminated two of the former specimens and three of the latter specimens from analysis.. The construct applied after the two-level procedure allowed a significantly smaller normalized neutral zone during flexion-extension than the three-level construct (p = 0.04). Normalized elastic zone and range of motion were consistently smaller in the two- than in the three-level construct, but the differences were not significant. Addition of a screw to the strut graft significantly reduced motion in the three-level procedure-treated specimens during flexion ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Multilevel corpectomy for cervical spondylotic myelopathy. AU - Shapiro, Scott. PY - 2003/8/25. Y1 - 2003/8/25. N2 - Multilevel corpectomy for decompressing the spinal cord to treat cervical spondylotic myelopathy has become commonplace. Correlation of preoperative radiographic findings with intraoperative anatomy will ensure adequate decompression and lessen complications. Reconstruction with cadaveric fibula or bone-filled titanium cages combined with a locking cervical plate has reduced donor site morbidity and long-term construct failure to near zero for two-level corpectomies. Three or more levels may best be reconstructed by both anterior and posterior instrumentation. One of the more common complications of this operation is hoarseness and that may be lessened with endotracheal tube deflation during retraction. Most of the complications of surgery are minor (including dysphagia), improve with time, and are well tolerated by the patient. The preoperative myelopathic gait ...

As people get older, the effects of ageing and everyday use causes wear to the joints and tissues that make up the spine. For example, the discs of the spine can dry out and shrink, and the ligaments can stiffen.. In all the bodys joints, there is a constant process of wear and repair happening, as the joints adapt to the stresses and strains of normal everyday life.. Cervical spondylosis occurs when the balance of wear and repair is lost, leading to pain and stiffness in the neck.. Cervical spondylosis is a very common condition. Its estimated that 9 out of 10 adults will have some degree of cervical spondylosis by the time they are 60 years old (but many will not have any noticeable symptoms). ...

A pure lower motor neurone syndrome affecting the upper limbs due to degenerative cervical spine disease is well described (cervical spondylotic amyotrophy); however, the existence of a similar syndrome affecting the lower limbs and due to thoracolumbar spinal cord compression is controversial.2. Cervical spondylotic amyotrophy is characterised by weakness and wasting of the upper limbs without sensory or lower limb involvement. It can be further classified depending on the muscles involved into a proximal (scapular, deltoid and biceps) and a distal type (triceps forearm and hand). Radiologically, the proximal subtype corresponds to lesions at the C4/5 intervertebral level resulting in damage to anterior horn cells supplying C5/6 nerve root innervated muscles. The distal subtype corresponds to cord lesions at either C5/6 or C6/7 that affect anterior horn cells innervating C7-T1 nerve root innervated muscles.2 These anatomical correlations help explain the pathomechanism of disease for the two ...
