*  Upper cervical spine injuries: a management of a series of 70 cases
Traumatic injuries of the upper cervical spine are often encountered, and may be associated to severe neurological outcome. This is a retrospective study of 70 patients, admitted over a 14 years period (1996 to 2010), for management of upper cervical spine injuries. Data concerning epidemiology, radiopathology and treatment was reviewed, and clinical and radiological evaluation was conducted. Men are more affected than women, with traffic accidents being the major traumatic cause. A cervical spine syndrome of varied intensity was found in about 90% of patients; neurological deficit was noted in 10 patients (21%). Radiological analysis discovered varied and many combined lesions: C1-C2 dislocation (7 cases), C2-C3 dislocation (9 cases), C1 fracture (10 cases) and C2 fracture (44 cases) including 28 odontoid fractures. Orthopedic treatment was carried out exclusively for 31 patients, and surgical treatment for 38 patients. One patient died before surgery because of a ...

*  New in the Literature: Screening for Clinically Important Cervical Spine Injury (CMAJ. 2012;184(16):E867-E876.)
Based on studies with modest methodologic quality and 1 direct comparison, the Canadian C-spine rule appears to have better diagnostic accuracy than the National Emergency X-Radiography Utilization Study (NEXUS) criteria when used to assess the need for cervical spine imaging, say authors of a systematic review published in CMAJ. Future studies need to follow rigorous methodologic procedures to ensure that the findings are as free of bias as possible, they add. For this review, the authors identified studies by an electronic search of CINAHL, Embase, and MEDLINE. They included articles that reported on a cohort of patients who experienced blunt trauma and for whom clinically important cervical spine injury detectable by diagnostic imaging was the differential diagnosis, evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of the Canadian C-spine rule or NEXUS or both, and used an adequate reference standard. They assessed the methodologic quality using the Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies ...

By Richard H. Adler, Attorney at Law. The May 2002 edition of Emergency Radiology published "The Use of Flexion and Extension MR in the Evaluation of Cervical Spine Trauma: Initial Experience in 100 Trauma Patients Compared with 100 Normal Subjects." Emergency Radiology (2002) 9: 249-253. These ER radiologists noted that cervical spine trauma is common following rapid acceleration-deceleration, even during low-impact car collisions. However, flexion and extension x-rays, the typical imaging method initially employed in most clinical situations, is of very limited use poor utility in the evaluation of cervical spine structures such as tissues, discs, and ligaments.. The purpose of the study was to determine the value and utility of flexion and extension MR imaging in traumatized cervical spines following rear-end low-impact acceleration-deceleration injury motor vehicle collisions. 100 sub-acute injured patients were compared to age-matched normal subjects utilizing a rapid flexion and ...

Neck pain caused by blunt trauma from a motor vehicle collision, fall, or other injury is a common occurrence. Many patients who decline ambulance transport after an injury will present to their primary care physician rather than the emergency department. Two clinical rules have been developed and validated to help physicians determine which patients with blunt trauma to the C-spine need radiography to rule out fracture.

Stem cells derived from human fetuses will be injected into the eyes of a dozen patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration, under a clinical trial approved early this year by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.. In mid-May, StemCells Inc. reported preliminary success in clinical safety trials with the same product on European patients with spinal injuries - the holy grail of potential stem-cell treatments. These trials are designed only to determine if the stem cells trigger tumors or immune reactions.. But the California-based, publicly traded firm isn't touting the source of its designer stem cell, HuCNS-SC. On its website, it describes the product as "tissue-derived 'adult' (non-embryonic) stem cells." And in its news release announcing the FDA's approval, it is described as "purified human neural stem cells.". However, LifeSite News, the Toronto-based pro-life news organization, dug into the firm's website to find "human neural stem cells" described more ...

I certainly remember teaching and using the standing board take down but it is gone. The new Pennsylvania (July 2015) spine injury care protocol specifically states the standing take down should not be used. We also used to put the MAST trousers on every trauma patient although actually inflating them was rare. Finished my Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from Carlow University in May 2016. It is my fifth college degree and I think I can safely say it will be my last. The negative outcomes from LSB use was a given based upon the literature. The question is: Will a change to spinal motion restriction cause injury by missing significant spinal injuries and causing more harm by movement? Morrissey et al. (2014) found only two missed spinal injuries after switching to SMR from using the board in a patient population of 5800 in a service area population of 1.5 million. Both of these "missed" spinal ...
