• vertebral body
  • The following are radiographic changes characteristic of spinal tuberculosis on plain radiography: Lytic destruction of anterior portion of vertebral body Increased anterior wedging Collapse of vertebral body Reactive sclerosis on a progressive lytic process Enlarged psoas shadow with or without calcification - Additional radiographic findings may include the following: Vertebral end plates are osteoporotic. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most common causes include iatrogenic lumbar punctures, burst fractures resulting in posterior migration of fragments of the vertebral body, severe disc herniations, spinal anaesthesia involving trauma from catheters and high local anaesthetic concentrations around the cauda equina, penetrating trauma such as knife wounds or ballistic trauma.

  • canal
  • Magnetic resonance imaging ( fig. 1 ) and computed tomography were performed and revealed a displacement of the nerve roots by an expansive mass in the posterior extradural space, which took up more than 50% of the spinal canal. (asahq.org)
  • No pus was found in the spinal canal. (asahq.org)

  • Compression, trauma or other damage to this region of the spinal canal can result in cauda equina syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • CES can be caused by lumbar spinal stenosis, which is when the diameter of the spinal canal narrows. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is due to the spinal canal narrowing that these kind of syndromes can produce. (wikipedia.org)
