Anatomic variations of cervical and high thoracic ligamentum flavum.

Epidural blocks are widely used for the management of acute and chronic pain. The technique of loss of resistance is frequently adopted to determine the epidural space. A discontinuity of the ligament...

Dynamic changes of the ligamentum flavum in the cervical spine assessed with kinetic magnetic resonance imaging.

The purpose of this article is to quantify changes in thickness of the ligamentum flavum (LF) associated with motion of the cervical spine and to compare the thickness of the LF at each cervical level...

Case series on variable presentation of ligamentum flavum stimulation following percutaneous cylindrical spinal cord stimulator lead implants.

Stimulation-evoked discomfort secondary to ligamentum flavum stimulation (LFS) is a technological limitation of percutaneous spinal cord stimulator (SCS) lead implants. There is a paucity of literatur...

Thoracic spinal metastasis of merkel cell carcinoma in an immunocompromised patient: case report.

Study Design Case report. Objective Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), an uncommon cutaneous neuroendocrine malignancy, is a rare cause of spinal metastasis, with only five cases previously reported. We...

Right ventricular free wall intramyocardial hematoma after coronary bypass.

Intramyocardial dissecting hematoma is a rare form of incomplete cardiac rupture usually reported with reference to the left ventricle or interventricular septum. Here we report the case of a 64-year-...

Comparison of the Effectiveness of Mobilization and Manipulation of the Thoracic Spine in Patients With Mechanical Neck Pain

This study aims to compare whether or not there is a difference in the effectiveness of upper back (thoracic spine) mobilizations versus manipulations used in a population of patients with...

Comparison Study of Using Ultrasound Guidance for Hematoma Blocks vs. Traditional Approach

Will use visual analog scales to compare effectiveness of traditional hematoma block vs ultrasound guided hematoma block with regards to pain. This will be done for closed forearm fracture...

Comparison of Two Thoracic Manipulation Techniques to Improve Neck Pain

This study is designed to compare the short-term effects of two different thoracic spine thrust manipulation techniques on neck range-of-motion, pain, and self-reported disability in peopl...

Postural Assessment by Photogrammetry

This study aimed to measure the degree of thoracic kyphosis in elderly women with those affected by osteoporosis in the spine, through photogrammetry computer and check the difference betw...

Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Responses to Specific Chiropractic Adjustments

A study to determine if a chiropractic adjustment in the cervical spine will effect the parasympathetics and a chiropractic adjustment in the thoracic spine will effect the sympathetics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The paired bands of yellow elastic tissue that connect adjoining laminae of the vertebrae. With the laminae, it forms the posterior wall of the spinal canal and helps hold the body erect.

A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.

Deformities of the SPINE characterized by an exaggerated convexity of the vertebral column. The forward bending of the thoracic region usually is more than 40 degrees. This deformity sometimes is called round back or hunchback.

A type of juvenile osteochondrosis affecting the fibrocartilaginous disc (INTERVERTEBRAL DISK) in the thoracic or thoracolumbar region of the SPINE. It is characterized by a forward concave SPINAL CURVATURE or KYPHOSIS.

Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE between the DURA MATER and the arachnoidal layer of the MENINGES. This condition primarily occurs over the surface of a CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, but may develop in the spinal canal (HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL, SPINAL). Subdural hematoma can be classified as the acute or the chronic form, with immediate or delayed symptom onset, respectively. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.
