  • cord
  • The spinal cord tapers to its end, the conus medullaris, usually at the lower edge of the first lumbar vertebra in adults. (bmj.com)
  • Intramedullary spinal cord tumors, like the one depicted in the image below, refer to a subgroup of intradural spinal tumors that arise from cells within the spinal cord, as opposed to adjacent structures such as the nerve roots or meninges. (medscape.com)
  • The tumor was removed en bloc (right), and the postsurgical cavity in the spinal cord is shown (bottom left). (medscape.com)
  • Also, neurological deficits resulting from intramedullary spinal cord tumors are seldom reversible. (medscape.com)
  • In the second stage, the tumor had partially extruded from the spinal cord for easier resection. (medscape.com)
  • Intramedullary spinal cord tumors are tumors that occur inside the spinal cord. (medscape.com)
  • physical therapy instructs on stretching and strength exercises that may lead to a decrease in pain and other symptoms Potential surgical treatments include: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion - A surgical treatment of nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the spinal cord and nerve roots of the cervical spine with a discectomy in order to stabilize the corresponding vertebrae. (wikipedia.org)
  • Laminoplasty - A surgical procedure relieve pressure on the spinal cord by cutting the lamina on both sides of the affected vertebrae (cutting through on one side and merely cutting a groove on the other) and then "swinging" the freed flap of bone open. (wikipedia.org)
  • incidence
  • While the exact incidence of multiple spinal meningiomas is difficult to determine, their possible occurrence warrants careful myelographic examination of the whole spinal canal, particularly if multiple clinical levels are present. (ajnr.org)
  • There is also a notable incidence of lumbar spinal fusion patients that present with sacroiliac pain and hypermobility, potentially due to the adjacent lumbar joints being fixed and unable to move. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • Hatfield MK, Udesky RH, Strimling AM, Kim BH, Silbergleit R (1989) MR imaging of a spinal epidermoid tumor. (springer.com)
  • vertebrae
  • This canal is enclosed within the vertebral foramen of the vertebrae. (wikipedia.org)
  • The spinal column consists of a series of smaller bones, known as vertebrae, which support and stabilise the upper body. (leading-medicine-guide.com)
  • We examined paired atlas and axis vertebrae using high-definition radiography and simultaneous photography in both normal and simulated pathological orientations in order to measure the resultant dimension of the spinal canal and its percentage occlusion. (ovid.com)
  • The vertebrae in the human vertebral column are divided into different regions, which correspond to the curves of the spinal column. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vertebrae articulate with each other to give strength and flexibility to the spinal column, and the shape at their back and front aspects determines the range of movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • The size of the vertebrae varies according to placement in the vertebral column, spinal loading, posture and pathology. (wikipedia.org)
  • claudication
  • If you have lumbar canal stenosis, the neural leg claudication starts when you stand up, gets worse when you walk and gets better when you stop walking. (aafp.org)
  • Spinal or neurogenic claudication may be differentiated from arterial claudication based on activity and position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Weakness is also a prominent feature of spinal claudication that is not usually present in intermittent claudication. (wikipedia.org)
  • cervical
  • The goal of this study was to measure CSF velocities at multiple cervical spinal levels in patients with Chiari I malformation. (ajnr.org)
  • Changes in peak velocity by cervical spinal level and age and sex were tested for significance with linear mixed-effects models. (ajnr.org)
  • Severe
  • The pathophysiology described for it states that the penetrated air, which had led to the formation of pneumocephalus might have been forced caudally due to the raised intracranial pressure as a consequence of severe brain injury and patient's horizontal position allowing the entrapped air to pass through the foramen magnum into the spinal canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • He is working for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) as a freelancer, though currently inactive due to a severe spinal injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Due to the increase in life duration DLSS condition becomes symptomatic and is one of the most common causes for spinal surgery in the elderly population over the age of 50. (hindawi.com)
  • Tumours
  • Acquired spinal epidermoid tumours are rare, and probably caused by skin fragments that have been transplanted by trauma or lumbar puncture. (springer.com)
  • Neuroradiology
  • Like other books in the Springer series New Procedures in Spinal Interventional Neuroradiology, this practice-oriented volume will fill a significant gap in the literature and meet the need expressed by a large number of specialists (interventional neuroradiologists and radiologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopedists) for a topical and handy guide that specifically illustrates the presently available materials and methods. (lovereading.co.uk)
  • bone
  • In the vertebrate spinal column, each vertebra is an irregular bone with a complex structure composed of bone and some hyaline cartilage, the proportions of which vary according to the segment of the backbone and the species of vertebrate. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • Inability to walk, with this unusual sensory examination completes a triad of signs and usually represents spinal tuberculosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • neutral
  • At the extreme of physiological axial rotation (47 degrees) the spinal canal is reduced to 61% of its cross-sectional area in neutral rotation. (ovid.com)
  • foramen magnum
  • The pathophysiology described for it states that the penetrated air, which had led to the formation of pneumocephalus might have been forced caudally due to the raised intracranial pressure as a consequence of severe brain injury and patient's horizontal position allowing the entrapped air to pass through the foramen magnum into the spinal canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fusion
  • With spinal fusion, the recovery time may be longer. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, if the spinal column is unstable and fusion is required, the recovery period can last from several months to more than a year, and the likelihood of symptom relief is far less probable. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is also a notable incidence of lumbar spinal fusion patients that present with sacroiliac pain and hypermobility, potentially due to the adjacent lumbar joints being fixed and unable to move. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • A number of methods can help with pain such as relaxation techniques, opioids, and spinal blocks. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • Only eight cases with pneumorrhachis extending to more than one spinal region had been reported in the literature. (wikipedia.org)
