• acute
  • When due to trauma, it is known as (acute) spinal cord injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • The spinal-cord hyperintensity seen at the C5-C6 is suggestive of chronic lesion and most likely responsible for the chronic history of cervical pain, while the C5-C6 lesion was most likely responsible for the acute tetraplegia. (wikipedia.org)
  • myelopathy
  • Myelopathy describes any neurologic deficit related to the spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • The presence and severity of myelopathy can also be evaluated by means of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a neurophysiological method that allows the measurement of the time required for a neural impulse to cross the pyramidal tracts, starting from the cerebral cortex and ending at the anterior horn cells of the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spinal cord.

  • kyphosis
  • Gibbus deformity is included in a subset of structural kyphosis that is distinguished by a higher-degree angle in the spinal curve that is specific to these forms of kyphosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • We retrospectively evaluated the hospital records of 68 consecutive patients operated for metastatic spinal cord compression. (diva-portal.org)
  • Our results also implicate the need for development of local and regional guidelines for treatment of patients with spinal cord compression, as well as the importance of information to patients at risk. (diva-portal.org)
  • Incidence of SEA is on the rise, due to factors such as an aging population, increase in use of invasive spinal instrumentation, growing number of patients with risk factors such as diabetes and intravenous drug use. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • While only around 10 percent of adults have a spinal abnormality due to genetics, a sixth lumbar vertebra is one of the more common abnormalities. (wikipedia.org)
