Association of polymorphism at the type I collagen (COL1A1) locus with reduced bone mineral density, increased fracture risk, and increased collagen turnover. (1/1662)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between a common polymorphism within intron 1 of the COL1A1 gene and osteoporosis in a nested case-control study. METHODS: We studied 185 healthy women (mean +/- SD age 54.3+/-4.6 years). Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured using dual x-ray absorptiometry, and fractures were determined radiographically. The COL1A1 genotype was assessed using the polymerase chain reaction and Bal I endonuclease digestion. RESULTS: Genotype frequencies were similar to those previously observed and in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium: SS 61.1%, Ss 36.2%, and ss 2.7%. Carriage of at least one copy of the "s" allele was associated with a significant reduction in lumbar spine BMD (P = 0.02) and an increased risk of total fracture (P = 0.04). Urinary pyridinoline levels were significantly elevated in those with the risk allele (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: These data support the findings that the COL1A1 gene polymorphism is associated with low BMD and fracture risk, and suggest a possible physiologic effect on total body turnover of type I collagen.  (+info)

Intraoperative ultrasonography evaluation of posterior vertebral wall displacement in thoracolumbar fractures. (2/1662)

Intraoperative ultrasonography (IOUS) was used to evaluate the location and compressive effects of intraspinal fragments in thoracolumbar fractures and the efficacy of reduction maneuvers in patients operated on for isolated or attached intraspinal fragments or for global posterior wall disruption. Dynamic IOUS was used to evaluate the effects of traction and lordosis. Fifty-eight patients were evaluated using a 7.5 MHz ultrasound probe, including 27 treated by impaction, 19 by removal of apparently isolated fragments, and 12 by traction followed by lordosis for global posterior wall disruption. IOUS had limitations and problems caused by split fragments and residual pedicular attachments that can compromise intraoperative maneuvers. The risk of secondary displacement of isolated fragments treated by impaction was very high. In particular, the pinching effect produced by T-shaped fractures was commonly responsible for secondary displacement. IOUS evaluation of canal clearance after fragment removal was satisfactory, but did not provide quantitative data. IOUS was easier to perform and apparently more reliable than intraoperative myelography. The dynamic IOUS data suggest that, except for severely tilted fragments that are completely free or remain attached to a pedicle, residual discal attachments significantly influence the likelihood of successful reduction.  (+info)

Multiple disc herniations in spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda. A case report. (3/1662)

Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia (SED) tarda is a group of inherited dysplasias in which the spine and the epiphyses of long bones are affected from late childhood. A 19-year-old male was diagnosed as SED tarda. He had a thoracic and then lumbar disc herniations which were separated by a 4-year interval. Surgical excision was performed for each disc herniation. This is the first case report of multiple disc herniations in SED.  (+info)

Prenatal sonographic features of spondylocostal dysostosis and diaphragmatic hernia in the first trimester. (4/1662)

Spondylocostal dysostosis is a congenital disorder characterized by multiple malformations of the vertebrae and ribs. We describe the sonographic features of an affected fetus at 12 and 14 weeks of gestation. The fetus had thoracic scoliosis, multiple vertebral and rib malformations and a grossly dilated stomach that had herniated into the chest through a left-sided diaphragmatic hernia. The stomach spanned the whole length of the fetal trunk.  (+info)

Eosinophilic granulated cells comprising a tumor in a Fischer rat. (5/1662)

A systemic tumor developed in multiple organs, including spleen, bone marrow, lymph nodes, liver, ovaries, and thoracic and lumbar vertebrae, of a female F344Du/Crj rat. The tumor was composed of round to indented mononuclear cells containing abundant large eosinophilic granules in the cytoplasm. The peripheral blood smear revealed that the large granules in the cytoplasm of the tumor cells were stained basophilic with Giemsa, suggesting a basophil or mast cell origin. However, these granules did not show metachromasia with toluidine blue and were stained blue to dark blue with phosphotungstic acid hematoxylin. Cellular morphology and characteristics in the specific stains of tumor cells suggested the development of a tumor of globule leukocytes in a F344Du/Crj rat.  (+info)

Fungal spinal osteomyelitis in the immunocompromised patient: MR findings in three cases. (6/1662)

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. (7/1662)

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)

Unusual presentation of spinal cord compression related to misplaced pedicle screws in thoracic scoliosis. (8/1662)

Utilization of thoracic pedicle screws is controversial, especially in the treatment of scoliosis. We present a case of a 15-year-old girl seen 6 months after her initial surgery for scoliosis done elsewhere. She complained of persistent epigastric pain, tremor of the right foot at rest, and abnormal feelings in her legs. Clinical examination revealed mild weakness in the right lower extremity, a loss of thermoalgic discrimination, and a forward imbalance. A CT scan revealed at T8 and T10 that the right pedicle screws were misplaced by 4 mm in the spinal canal. At the time of the revision surgery the somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) returned to normal after screw removal. The clinical symptoms resolved 1 month after the revision. The authors conclude that after pedicle instrumentation at the thoracic level a spinal cord compression should be looked for in case of subtle neurologic findings such as persistent abdominal pain, mild lower extremity weakness, tremor at rest, thermoalgic discrimination loss, or unexplained imbalance.  (+info)

Diversity in the bodies of thoracic vertebrae. First, the bodies of the thoracic vertebrae vary in size to the degree one is closer to the neck than the other (the first of the figures showing all the bones and the fig. for ch. 14 show this variation of articulation and bulk). The body of the first thoracic vertebra is thus quite smaller than the twelfth. Next, the body of the first, on its superior surface where it is joined to the seventh cervical vertebra, is not entirely flat but swells slightly at each side and subtly imitates the bodies of the cervical vertebrae (h, k, q in fig. 9, ch. 15); but the lower part of this body has a flat surface like the upper and lower surfaces of the bodies of all thoracic vertebrae (A in figs. 1, 2, 3). No lower portion of the body in the thoracic vertebrae is in fact extended even the least bit in a long downward slope or ends in a depression of the body of the next vertebra, as do the cervical vertebrae (r in fig. 8 and z in fig. 9, ch. 15). Yet Galen ...
The choice of treatment for thoracolumbar burst fractures remains controversial. The ideal operative approaches are also disputed1, 2; however, a common surgical goal is to obtain the most stable fixation with fusion of the fewest segments possible.
Three cases are presented of thoracic radiculopathy related to collapsed thoracic vertebral bodies. In all cases proximal weakness of the legs was present, leading to the diagnosis of myopathy in two cases. Sensory symptoms were present in two cases. In one, anterior thigh paresthesias lead to a diagnosis of meralgia paresthetica. This diagnostic entity must be remembered if appropriate corroborative tests are to be performed. In cases of trauma this diagnosis should be considered if thoracic vertebral collapse is present. Conversely, an evaluation of proximal weakness should include a review of thoracic radiographs for vertebral collapse, especially in the presence of sensory findings in the lower abdominal or proximal thigh region.. ...

The lowest portion of the spine consists of the lumbar vertebrae. Between the cervical vertebrae and the lumbar vertebrae are the thoracic vertebrae. The 12 thoracic
Continued From Above... Its structure is similar to the other thoracic vertebrae, with a large column of bone known as the centrum (or vertebral body) forming its anterior structure and a thin ring of bone known as the vertebral arch forming its posterior structure. The vertebral body is larger and wider in T12 than in the other thoracic vertebrae and more closely resembles the vertebral bodies of the lumbar vertebrae. It is flat on top and bottom, convex anteriorly, and slightly concave posteriorly. Most of the osseous tissue of T12 is contained within the centrum, which serves to support the bodys weight. A pair of intervertebral disks made of tough fibrocartilage connects the vertebral body of T12 to those of its neighboring vertebrae. Each rubbery intervertebral disk provides a slightly flexible connection between the vertebral bodies and acts as a shock absorber to prevent collisions between the vertebrae.. The vertebral arch of T12 is thicker and stronger than its counterparts in the ...

Thoracic and lumbar fractures represent nearly 90% of traumatic spine injuries. Thoracolumbar region is susceptible to injury because of its location between the stiff kyphotic thoracic spine and the mobile lordotic lumbar region. To compare between short-segment fixation with screws into index level and long-segment fixation in maintaining angle of correction and pain. A prospective study included 91 patients, who had single-level thoracolumbar fracture with Cobbs angle ≤ 25° and underwent posterior fixation. Forty-four patients underwent short-segment fixation with screws into the index level, and 47 patients underwent long-segment fixation with skipped index level. The angle of correction, pain, and neurological state were regularly assessed. Forty-four patients (48.35%) had short segment and 47 (51.65%) had long-segment fixation. In the short segment group, the pre-operative mean Cobbs angle was 19.34° ± 3.63° and the angle of correction was 8.14° ± 1.9° after 1 year, while in the long

This is a retrospective study of the use of parallel endplate osteotomy (PEO) for correction of severe rigid thoracolumbar spine deformity. From July 2016 to January 2019, 12 patients with severe rigid thoracolumbar spine deformity underwent PEO on T12 or L1 vertebrae were studied. Following PEO at T12 or L1, the mean kyphosis and scoliosis correction rates reached 77.0 ± 8.9% and 75.5 ± 8.0%, respectively and the intraoperative estimated blood loss was 1950 ± 1050 mL, and the mean operative time was 6.98 ± 4.02 h. The SF-36 scores of physical function, role-physical, bodily pain, general health, vitality, social function, role-emotional and mental health changed from 63 ± 28, 50 ± 25, 50 ± 30, 34 ± 19, 53 ± 28, 45 ± 30, 30 ± 36 and 54 ± 18 at baseline to 83 ± 18, 69 ± 19, 72 ± 12, 66 ± 21, 75 ± 15, 72 ± 22, 66 ± 34 and 76 ± 12 at 1 year postoperatively, 83 ± 8, 68 ± 32, 83 ± 17, 73 ± 17, 82 ± 18, 76 ± 26, 70 ± 37 and 88 ± 12 at 18 months postoperatively, 86 ± 6, 83 ± 33,
In the thoracic region the intervertebral discs are relatively thin with respect to the vertebral bodies, and together with the presence of the ribs and sternum, their movement is limited. The orientation of the articular processes of the thoracic vertebrae, which lie on the arc of a circle with its centre close to the anterior part of the vertebral body, permits flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation. However, the inferior processes of the 12th thoracic vertebra resemble those of the lumbar region and therefore movements at the thoracolumbar junction are similar to those between lumbar vertebrae.. Flexion and extension The combined range of flexion and extension in the thoracic part of the vertebral column is between 50° and 70°, with extension being much more limited than flexion. Flexion is much freer in the lower half of the region as the lower ribs tend to be longer and more flexible because of their longer costal cartilages.. In flexion the inferior articular processes of the ...

In physical therapy school, the thoracic spine is often glossed over during the musculoskeletal courses. This may be due to the low incidence and prevalence of thoracic spine pain. The incidence of thoracic spine pain is only ~15-19% across the population. This is relatively low ​compared to lumbar spine pain, which has an 80% prevalence in adults. Additionally, physical therapy schools may choose to emphasize the non-musculoskeletal diagnosis that are important in the thoracic spine. Since many organs are housed in the thoracic cavity, hours are spent on non-musculoskeletal diagnosis. For example, if a patient presents with thoracic spine pain, it is more important to rule-out a myocardial infarction than a thoracic facet restriction. Regardless, there is a gap in students knowledge regarding thoracic spine anatomy and biomechanics, mobility assessment, and differential diagnosis ...

The lack of a functional Hoxc10 homeobox causes several homeotic transformations in the axial skeleton (Table 1, Figures 3 and 4). Wild-type C57Bl/6 mice typically have 30 precaudal vertebrae, with the more caudal vertebrae organized in T13L6S4 pattern, with thirteen thoracic vertebrae, six lumbar vertebrae and four sacral vertebrae [refs]. Eighty percent of the wild-type mice examined in this study exhibited this pattern, with the remainder of the animals showing some mild variation in the shape of the L1, L6, or S1 segments; these types of variations are within the range of normal [ref]. Hoxc10 mutant mice also have 30 precaudal vertebrae, but the patterning of the vertebral column is altered. Most Hoxc10 mutant mice (33 of 34 examined) show a partial to complete transformation of the thirteenth thoracic vertebrae, precaudal vertebra 20 (PC20) into a lumbar identity, typified by the reduction or complete loss of the thirteenth rib.

By: Dr. David Tiberio, Gray Institute. The thoracic spine is the spinal region that has the most vertebrae, and therefore the most joints. The thoracic spine has a lot of motion in each of the three planes. The motion in three planes can be combined in a variety of ways to contribute to the functional success of purposeful movements of the arms, legs, and head. The motions in the frontal and transverse planes have been described as linked or coupled together, but all combinations including the sagittal plane are needed.. Anatomy separates the thoracic spine from the cervical spine above and the lumbar spine below. However during global functional movements, the spine becomes a single unit linked to all four extremities. The importance of the thoracic spine becomes evident when we recognize even a few of the truths of Chain Reaction movements:. Any appreciable movement of the head (driven by the eyes) in any of the six directions will involve the upper thoracic region. All shoulder motions ...

Study Design. Prospective case series.. Objective. To evaluate the change in spinal rod contour from before implantation to after surgical correction of thoracic curves in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.. Summary of Background Data. With segmental pedicle screw spinal instrumentation and vertebral derotation, many authors have reported a loss of thoracic kyphosis postoperatively. Although surgeons anticipate some flattening of the preimplantation rod contour in the sagittal plane, the magnitude of this change in shape has not been documented.. Methods. The concave and convex rod shapes of 5.5-mm ultrahigh-strength steel spinal rods (200 KSI) from patients with thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (n = 27), which were contoured with benders by the surgeon, were traced prior to insertion. Postoperative (average, 5 weeks) sagittal rod shape was determined from lateral 2-dimensional radiographs. Maximal rod deflection and angle of the tangents to rod end points (Cobb) were ...
A prospective study was designed to determine whether posterior instrumentation of the spine in thoracolumbar and lumbar burst fractures produces indirect decompression of the spinal canal leading to better remodeling and neurological recovery. The study was conducted in Kasturba Medical College Manipal, India. Sixty-eight consecutive cases of thoracolumbar and lumbar burst fractures were treated by posterior instrumentation, and approval from the hospital ethical committee was obtained. The degree of initial spinal canal compromise, indirect decompression, and remodeling were assessed from the computed tomography scans. The neurological status at the time of presentation and at final follow-upwas assessed by the American Spinal Injury Associations modified Frankels grading. The median canal compromise in patients with and without neurological deficit was 47.32 and 39.33%, respectively. The overall mean canal compromise at the time of admission, post-operative, and final follow-up were 47.37, ...
Introduction Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is present in 2% to 4% of children between 10 and 16 years of age.1 It is recognized as a complex three-dimensional (3D) deformation of the spine with lateral deviation in the coronal plane, alternation of the kyphosis/lordosis in the sagittal plane and rotation of the vertebrae in the axial plane.
Few people with a thoracic disc herniation feel any symptoms or have any problems as a result of this condition. In rare cases when symptoms do arise, the main concern is whether the herniated disc is affecting the spinal cord.
Dear Readers, In 2012 it was found that I had a thoracic disc herniation at T7/T8. I was told that the herniation was severe and without surgery ASAP I would become paralyzed from the waist down. That is a scary thing to hear. But you know what else was scary? Finding out that this is…

Introduction: Posterior surgical stabilization is commonly indicated for unstable thoracolumbar fractures. Short segment stabilization has the advantage of preserving mobile segments and reducing excessive loads on the adjacent discs but is not without complications. Rod migration is an extremely rare complication after thoracolumbar fracture fixation and can lead to catastrophic visceral and vascular injuries. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of a surgically managed distant rod migration into the posterior sacrum and pelvis after a posterior thoracolumbar trauma fixation. Case Report: A 25-year-old male patient presented to our center with complaints of the right buttock and groin pain for 8weeks. He had a history of an unstable thoracolumbar fracture treated by a short segment posterior stabilization 5years back. On examination and investigations, we found that the right-sided rod migrated into the posterior sacrum and partly into the pelvis. The fracture had united well in
Compression studies were conducted on the ligamentous thoracolumbar spines of fresh human male cadavers. For comparison, forces were applied to the posterior upper thoracic region of intact seated cadavers. Since this type of injury routinely involves ligament failure and vertebral body wedge compression fractures, studies were conducted on single vertebral bodies and isolated ligaments. Similar studies were conducted in isolated monkey ligaments. The intact and ligamentous thoracolumbar spines failed predominately in the region of the thoracolumbar junction at forces from 1113-5110 N. For both the human and monkey cadavers, the anterior longitudinal ligament was the strongest. The human ligaments were 2-5 times stronger than those of the monkey ...
This study compares the fatigue failure of a tapered titanium-rod construct against two connected titanium rods (domino construct) across the cervicothoracic junction. All testing was carried out in a simulated flexion-extension plane. The 3.5-mm/6.0-mm tapered titanium rod and the 3.5-mm titanium rod, connected to a 6.0-mm titanium rod with a connector, were compared for their fatigue failures. Six specimens of each construct were tested in a cantilever displacement control method using 6 different amplitudes. Each specimen was cycled to failure or to 2.5 million cycles (run out) at 10 Hz. Failure was defined as rod fracture. The domino construct reached the test limit of 2.5 million cycles at± 0.45 mm (72 N) but failed in all the other tested amplitudes. The tapered rod construct reached the test run out limit of 2.5 million cycles at higher amplitudes than the domino construct at ± 0.9 mm and failed in all the other tested amplitudes. The study showed that the tapered-rod construct across ...

Materials and methods: Nineteen patients with L5 neurological burst fractures were consecutively enrolled; 6 patients had complete motor deficits, and 12 had sphincter dysfunction. We performed 18 posterior and one combined approaches. To avoid kyphosis, posterior internal fixation was achieved by positioning patients on the operating table with hips and knees fully extended. At the latest follow-up (mean 22 months, range 10-66), neurological recovery, canal remodeling and L4-S1 angle were evaluated. Results: Vertebral body replacement was difficult, which therefore resulted in ...
Thoracic disc herniations, though less common than cervical and lumbar, can cause attention-getting pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers gentle Cox Technic to alleviate the pain.
The mean operative duration was 205.4 min (range 115-375 min), with an average blood loss of 488.5 mL (range 215-880 mL). Radiographical and clinical outcomes were assessed after a mean of 61.4 months of follow-up. The VAS back pain and ASQoL scores improved significantly in all patients (7.52 ± 1.31 vs. 1.70 ± 0.70, t = 18.30, P < 0.001; 13.87 ± 1.89 vs. 7.22 ± 1.24, t = 18.53, P < 0.001, respectively). The thoracolumbar kyphosis (TLK) changed from 40.03 ± 17.61° pre-operatively to 13.86 ± 6.65° post-operatively, and 28.45 ± 6.63° at final follow-up (F = 57.54, P < 0.001), the thoracic kyphosis (TK) changed from 52.30 ± 17.62° pre-operatively to 27.76 ± 6.50° post-operatively, and 28.45 ± 6.63° at final follow-up (F = 57.29, P < 0.001), and lumbar lordosis (LL) changed from -29.56 ± 9.73° pre-operatively to -20.58 ± 9.71° post-operatively, and -20.73 ± 10.27° at final follow-up (F = 42.50, P < 0.001). Mean sagittal vertical axis (SVA) was improved from 11.82 ± 4.55 cm ...
In this series of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis double curves we found postoperative transverse plane pelvic rotation increase (TPPRI) in 7 of 17, with resolution in 5 of the 7. Two of the variables studied were significantly associated with TPPRI. They were the addition of un-instrumented sequential anterior thoracolumbar/lumbar discectomy and arthrodesis and increased preoperative tilt of the vertebra below the lower instrumented vertebra. The occurrence of TPPRI and whether or not it persisted did not affect clinical outcome.. We interpret postoperative TPPRI to be a decompensation caused by extension of the corrective thoracolumbar/lumbar rotational load into the lumbosacral hemicurve below. This is supported by our finding that postoperatively the rotation of the vertebra below the lower instrumented vertebra in the direction of the thoracolumbar/lumbar curve (counterclockwise) had not changed in the no-TPPRI group, whereas in the TPPRI group it had decreased significantly, from 6° to ...

The importance of sagittal alignment in healthy individuals and in reconstructive spinal surgery has been studied over the last 15 years. The aim of the present study was to assess the long-term effects of abnormal sagittal alignment on hardware after posterior thoracolumbar spinal fusion. Patients who had undergone revision surgery (revision cohort, n = 34) due to breakage of their implants were compared retrospectively with patients who had intact implants at the final follow-up investigation after a long posterior thoracolumbar and/or lumbar spinal fusion (control cohort, n = 22). Clinical data and radiological parameters including the sagittal vertical axis (SVA), pelvic incidence (PI), lordosis gap (LG), pelvic tilt (PT), sacral slope (SS), lumbar lordosis (LL), thoracic kyphosis (TK), and the femoral obliquity angle (FOA) were assessed on full-spine lateral radiographs obtained in regular standing position. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, parametric and non-parametric inferential

Symptomatic thoracic disc herniation is a relatively uncommon clinical entity and surgical intervention on thoracic discs is even more rare.. Given the unique surgical challenges presented by thoracic spine anatomy, despite described innumerable discectomy techniques, none of them has been accepted universally. The incidence of thoracic disc herniations is 1/1,000 to 1/1,000,000. 0.15% to 4% of all surgical disc procedures are in the thoracic region. 70% occur below T7, most common at T9-12.. Minimally invasive techniques brought a paradigm shift in the management of cervical/lumbar spinal conditions and similar techniques have been extrapolated to the thoracic region as well.. Traditional and microsurgical approaches are associated with significant muscle and bony resections. ...

The thoracic spine contains 12 medium sized vertebrae all of which form articulations (joints) with 2 opposing ribs. Like the other spinal vertebrae, the thoracic vertebrae act as attachments for muscles and ligaments in the mid spine and also encase and protect the median aspect of the spinal cord and thoracic nerve roots. Because the thoracic vertebrae form relatively strong articulations with the ribs, the mobility of the thoracic spine is less than that of the cervical and lumbar spines. However, this same characteristic also protects the thoracic spinal discs and facet joints from the wear and tear experienced by these structures in the other areas of the spine. Common vertebral problems in the thoracic spine include vertebral subluxations, a condition where the vertebrae of the thoracic spine become statically misaligned and/or function abnormally resulting in pain, muscle spasm, and sometime nerve malfunction. ...

Thirty-six patients (16 male and 20 female patients) who required posterior thoracic instrumentation for spinal deformity (11 cases), neoplasm (15 cases), and traumatic injury (10 cases) were included in this study. One hundred sixty-four endplate screws were placed (mean ...
In Europe there is a 3-fold variation, according to geographical center, in risk of vertebral deformity in men and women over the age of 50. We investigated the relationship between bone density, as assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) of the spine and hip and prevalent vertebral deformities in 13 of the 36 centers participating in the European Vertebral Osteoporosis Study (EVOS). Each center recruited an age-stratified sample of men and women aged 50 years and over, and of those who agreed to densitometry, 288/2088 women and 233/1908 men were found to have one or more deformities of the vertebrae between T4 and L4 as assessed by the McCloskey algorithm. DEXA was in each case performed on L2-L4, the proximal femur, or both. Bone densitometry results were cross-calibrated between centers using the European Spine Phantom prototype and results expressed as bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm2). In both genders, subjects with deformities involving loss of anterior vertebral body height alone
The pedicles are directed backward and slightly upward, and the inferior vertebral notches are of large size, and deeper than in any other region of the vertebral column. The laminae are broad, thick, and imbricated - that is to say, they overlap those of subjacent vertebrae like tiles on a roof and connect with the pedicles to surround and protect the spinal cord. The intervertebral foramen is small, and circular, with two at each intervertebral level, one for the right and one for the left exiting nerve roots. The vertebral foramen is the large opening posterior to the vertebral body also known as the spinal canal. It contains and protects the spinal cord at the thoracic level. The spinous process is long, triangular on coronal section, directed obliquely downward, arising from the lamina and ending in a tuberculated extremity. These processes overlap from the fifth to the eighth, but are less oblique in direction above and below. The superior articular processes are thin plates of bone ...
Focal vertebral bone density changes were assessed in vertebral computed tomography (CT) images obtained from clinically healthy dogs without diseases that affect bone density. The number, location, and density of lesions were determined. A total of 429 vertebral CT images from 20 dogs were reviewed, and 99 focal vertebral changes were identified in 14 dogs. Focal vertebral bone density changes were mainly found in thoracic vertebrae (29.6%) as hyperattenuating (86.9%) lesions. All focal vertebral changes were observed at the vertebral body, except for a single hyperattenuating change in one thoracic transverse process. Among the hyperattenuating changes, multifocal changes (53.5%) were more common than single changes (46.5%). Most of the hypoattenuating changes were single (92.3%). Eight dogs, 40% of the 20 dogs in the study and 61.6% of the 13 dogs showing focal vertebral changes in the thoracic vertebra, had hyperattenuating changes at the 7th or 8th thoracic vertebra. Our results indicate ...

The orientation of superior articular facets from C3 to S1 carries a functional and clinical significance in normal day-to-day activities of human body. Accurate information about the orientation of articular facets at all levels in human spinal column is not available in literature (Stewart, 1952; Comas, 1960; & Montagu, 1960).. According to the information obtained from the textbooks of anatomy & orthopedics, the articular facets in cervical region are oriented in coronal plane. The articular surfaces of superior facets face upwards & backwards & those of corresponding inferior facets face downwards & forwards. At the cervico-thoracic region and thoracic region, the superior articular facets face posterolaterally. In the thoraco-lumbar and lumbar region, superior articular facets face postero-medially. Similarly, superior articular facets of S1 are directed postero medially.. As part of our present study to measure the sagittal angle of superior articular facets; we searched for an appropriate ...
Twenty-six cases underwent surgery with the remainder managed with bed rest and bracing. Posterior pedicle screw constructs and allograft bone graft were used with a median surgical time of 105 (60 - 270 ± 64) minutes and median blood loss of 400 (150 - 2200 ± 514) ml. An additional corpectomy was performed in one incomplete neurologically impaired patient with an A3 fracture and residual compression.. All 26 surgically treated cases showed fusion at 1 year as assessed on X-ray. This was based on the presence of the bone graft and no sign of failure of instrumentation, i.e. peri-screw lucency or instrumentation breakage.. One case required revision for a misplaced pedicle screw. He developed superficial wound infection which was successfully treated with oral antibiotics. Five patients developed decubitus ulcers as a consequence of their spinal cord injury and suboptimal early care before referral. Six developed pneumonia.. Overall there was modest correction of kyphosis from 25º (3º - 55º ...
