• cervical
  • Further imaging modalities used for evaluating myelopathy include plain X-rays for detecting arthritic changes of the bones, and Computer Tomography, which is often used for pre-operative planning of surgical interventions for cervical spondylotic myelopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • outcome
  • Several studies demonstrated that phase contrast MRI findings correlate to syrinx size and disease progression [ 2 , 5 , 9 ], and can help predict symptomatic outcome after surgical decompression [ 6 , 7 ]. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Sayed Issa's Approach) It is a carpal tunnel release through a small approach on the distal wrist crease, it is about 1.5 cm, the benefits of this technique is less surgical traumatic and more tender, it takes less time for rehabilitation, so the patient can work next day of operation, and it has very cosmetic and gentle scar in results and outcome.

  • procedure
  • Thus, there has been broad support for either surgical procedure using a variety of devices or incisions. (wikipedia.org)
  • The features of the procedure includes the potentials of reduced risk of iatrogenic injury, reduced surgical cost, and reduced patient recovery time. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the contrary, others argue that to undergo a relatively minor and minimally invasive once-off surgical procedure is not as invasive as having to permanently take chronic medication, which in many people has unpleasant or intolerable side effects, or is ineffective. (wikipedia.org)
  • Different types of laminotomies are defined by the type of instrument used to visualize the surgical procedure, what vertebra the procedure is performed on, and whether or not both lamina of a vertebra are operated on or just one. (wikipedia.org)
  • An endoscope is a small tube-shaped camera inserted into the patient in order to visualize the surgical procedure internally. (wikipedia.org)
  • pressure
  • Decompression uses cyclical, painless stretching to reduce pressure, promote circulation, and improve healing naturally. (drstockstad.com)
  • It is believed, that the negative pressure created by the decompression computer actually sucks the herniated material back into the disc and allows it to heal resulting in the reduction and possible elimination of pain. (drstockstad.com)
  • significant
  • We hypothesize that surgical decompression for Chiari malformation type 1 (CM-1) is associated with statistically significant decrease in tonsillar pulsatility, and that the degree of pulsatility can be reliably assessed regardless of the experience level of the reader. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
