  • Patients who benefit from an orthosis may have a condition such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy, or have experienced a spinal cord injury or stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • They may also be beneficial in aiding individuals who have suffered a neurological impairment such as stroke, spinal cord injury, or peripheral neuropathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other adverse effects include spinal cord injury in 0.6 per 1000. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diseases
  • Daily dosing with oral glucocorticoids (corticosteroids) for chronic diseases was found to be a strong predictor of spinal fracture at one year, according to new data presented at the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). (innovations-report.com)
  • It was known for its development of minimally invasive therapeutic devices built upon a radiofrequency platform for the treatment of spinal diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • DFINE developed products for the treatment of spinal diseases using a radiofrequency platform. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Before the procedure, you will have a medical exam and undergo imaging studies, such as x-rays, to determine the precise location of the fracture. (medtronic.com)
  • The procedure is done under a general anesthetic and it involves a small incision being made close to the area where the spinal fracture is located. (hoffmannpersonalinjury.com)
  • The subjects in these trials had primarily non-acute fractures and prior to the release of the results they were considered the most ideal people to receive the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Others consider the procedure only appropriate for those with other health problems making rest possibly detrimental, those with metastatic cancer as the cause of the spine fracture, or those who do not improve with conservative management. (wikipedia.org)

  • risk
  • Mortality risk for operated and nonoperated vertebral fracture patients in the Medicare population. (medtronic.com)
  • Spinal Fractures: Are you at risk? (spineuniverse.com)
  • The risk of fracture was found to increase incrementally with every 1 mg increase above 7.5 mg in the daily dose of the glucocorticoid. (innovations-report.com)
  • This increased fracture risk is notable since the glucocorticoid patients were younger, had higher baseline BMD scores, and fewer pre-existing spinal fractures. (innovations-report.com)
  • There was a trend shown with Actonel to reduce the risk of fracture versus placebo similarly regardless of whether patients did or did not have an existing fracture or whether the daily dose of corticosteroid was 7.5 to 15 mg or >15 mg. (innovations-report.com)
  • In the BMD threshold analysis, the one-year fracture risk in postmenopausal placebo glucocorticoid users was compared to that of 2,570 postmenopausal women with low BMD not using glucocorticoids from four other Actonel trials. (innovations-report.com)
  • Although the glucocorticoid users were younger with higher baseline BMD and fewer pre-existing fractures compared to non-users, their risk of fracture was nearly six-fold higher. (innovations-report.com)
  • Our study raises concerns about the impact of these fractures on quality of life by putting women at risk for subsequent fractures, but it also provides evidence that a simple and non-invasive bone density test can help identify those at risk. (medindia.net)
  • Spinal fractures result in chronic back pain and increased risk of other fractures, including those in the hip. (medindia.net)
  • Based on the results of the study, Dr. Cauley and colleagues are developing a risk model to help physicians better identify women who are more likely to have a silent spine fracture and who may benefit from treatment. (medindia.net)
  • To examine whether LESIs increase the risk of subsequent vertebral body fracture, Shlomo Mandel, MD, MPH, and colleagues from the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit retrospectively compared the risk in 3,000 patients who had received LESIs and 3,000 matched patients who had not received injections. (empr.com)
  • The researchers found that after adjusting for possible confounding factors, the fracture risk increased by a factor of 1.21 with each successive injection. (empr.com)
  • The added exposure to glucocorticoids resulting from LESI use may carry a greater risk than previously thought, suggesting that use of LESIs should be approached cautiously in patients at risk for osteoporotic fractures. (empr.com)
