Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Operative immobilization or ankylosis of two or more vertebrae by fusion of the vertebral bodies with a short bone graft or often with diskectomy or laminectomy. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p236; Dorland, 28th ed)
Spontaneous aggregations of human embryonic stem cells that occur in vitro after culturing in a medium that lacks LEUKEMIC INHIBITORY FACTOR. The embryoid bodies can further differentiate into cells that represent different lineages.
Saline Solution, Hypertonic
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
A highly reactive aldehyde gas formed by oxidation or incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons. In solution, it has a wide range of uses: in the manufacture of resins and textiles, as a disinfectant, and as a laboratory fixative or preservative. Formaldehyde solution (formalin) is considered a hazardous compound, and its vapor toxic. (From Reynolds, Martindale The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p717)
Vertebral Artery Dissection
Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.
STUDY DESIGN.: We used dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry to examine the bone mineral densities (BMDs) of the vertebral bodies at the fused level (the fused vertebral BMDs), at the unfused level (the un...
A 61-year-old man presented with a rare case of spontaneous vertebral arteriovenous fistula manifesting as radiculopathy of the left arm. MRI demonstrated an abnormal dilated vascular space on the lef...
INTRODUCTION: Very severe osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (vsOVCFs), which are vertebral bodies collapsed to less than one-third of their original height, are considered as a relative con...
Abstract: Kyphoplasty (KP) and vertebroplasty (VP) are both minimally invasive surgical techniques, which can enhance the mechanical stability of the vertebral lesion by injecting filling materials in...
Accurate and objective evaluation of vertebral deformations is of significant importance in clinical diagnostics and therapy of pathological conditions affecting the spine. Although modern clinical pr...
Vertebral osteomyelitis is a uncommon disease that can lead to neurologic deficits if not diagnosed in time. The etiologies of vertebral osteomyelitis include pyogenic bacteria, M. tubercu...
A randomized phase III study of palliative external beam radiotherapy (RTOG 97-14) has shown that 8 Gy in a single fraction is very effective in providing pain relief, with complete or par...
The Zero-P PEEK is a stand-alone device intended for use in cervical interbody fusion. The device consists of a plate and a spacer with four rigid screws to provide similar stability to a...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of NeoFuse in subjects with a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease (DDD) at 2 or more adjacent cervical verte...
