  • Posterior
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • The majority of babies with open spina bifida have a variety of medical problems including nerve damage and problems with motor function, this may include some amount of paralysis of the lower part of their body (this ranges from very mild to quite severe), loss of control of their bowels and bladder, and abnormalities of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Our moderate-severe contusion SCI model displayed rapid cancellous bone deterioration and more gradual cortical bone loss and development of whole bone mechanical deficits, which likely resulted from a temporal uncoupling of bone turnover, similar to the sequalae observed in the motor-complete SCI population. (springer.com)
  • defect
  • The MOMS Trial was a clinical trial that studied treatment of a birth defect called myelomeningocele, which is the most severe form of spina bifida. (wikipedia.org)
  • The MMC-like defect was surgically created at 75 days of gestation (term 145 to 150 days) by a lumbo-sacral laminectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • mild
  • The specific sensory nerves inducing spasticity are identified using electromyographic (EMG) stimulation and graded on a scale of 1 (mild) to 4 (severe spasticity). (wikipedia.org)
  • open
  • Open cordotomy, which requires a laminectomy (removal of part of one or more vertebrae), takes placer under general anaesthetic and has a longer recovery time and a higher risk of side-effects including permanent weakness. (wikipedia.org)
  • operation
  • There was no adult patient who required further operation for severe deformity or instability after laminectomy. (ovid.com)
  • The success rate of a laminectomy depends on the specific reason for the operation, as well as proper patient selection and the surgeon's technical ability. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • If laminectomy is being performed as part of surgical treatment for a herniated disk, the surgeon also removes the herniated portion of the disk and any pieces that have broken loose-this is called discectomy. (mainlinehealth.org)
  • patient
  • The patient sued her physician, claiming that the physician was negligent in not warning her of the risks of radiation therapy, which resulted in severe injury. (modernmedicine.com)
  • component
  • If a severe radicular component is present, a short course of oral steroids such as Prednisone or Methylprednisolone can be considered. (wikipedia.org)
  • less
  • The department provides 41 beds for critical injuries and illnesses, as well as six beds for less severe illnesses and injuries. (wikipedia.org)
