  • Surgeons
  • Despite the fact that microsurgical lumbar laminoplasty is an effective and less-invasive method for decompressing spinal nerves compared to traditional laminectomy, few surgeons have adopted it because the technique is more time consuming and requires specialized training and equipment (operating microscope).

  • Treatment is generally by urgent surgery in the form of a laminectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscles
  • Because the muscles may have been depending on the spasticity to function, there is almost always extreme weakness after a rhizotomy, and the patient will have to work very hard to strengthen the weak muscles with intensive physical therapy, and to learn habits of movement and daily tasks in a body without the spasticity. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Recent research from China has found that patients with OLF had significantly elevated levels of fluoride in their bone, indicating fluoride may play a causative role in the disease, even where signs of skeletal fluorosis may not otherwise be apparent. (fluoridealert.org)

  • In most known cases of lumbar and thoracic laminectomies,[dead link] patients tend to recover slowly, with recurring pain or spinal stenosis persisting for up to 18 months after the procedure. (wikipedia.org)

  • Cases
  • In some cases after laminectomy and spinal fusion, it may take several months to return to normal activities. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, recent cases of successful SDR procedures among those with spastic diplegia across all major age ranges (years 3-40 and even above) has finally proven its universal effectiveness and safety regardless of the age of the spastic diplegic patient. (wikipedia.org)
