The optimal surgical timeframe for neurological recovery in traumatic spinal cord injury (tSCI) still remains unknown. Recent guidelines have recommended performing surgery within 24 h for all patien...
The International Spinal Cord Society and World Health Organisation recommend the collection of epidemiological data on traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI). A 1-year prospective study is ongoing in Ir...
Spinal cord injury in the cervical spine is commonly accompanied by cord compression and urgent surgical decompression may improve neurological recovery. However, the extent of spinal cord compression...
This article provides an update on the acute and subacute management and prognostication of patients with traumatic spinal cord injury.
To examine the occurrence and severity of co-occurring traumatic brain injury (TBI) in persons with traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI), i.e. dual diagnosis (DD), and to describe differences in functio...
A traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) often causes an unprecedented change in functioning by altering bodily structure and function. More specifically, the direct consequences of TSCI to t...
The study is a prospective cohort study designed to assess the diagnostic and prognostic potential of biomarker measurement in acute traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI), and to examine the...
This is an open, randomized, rehabilitation-controlled study in subjects with complete Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury, where the active treatment consists of a surgical implantation of a bio...
The NCTT is a prospective, multicenter, observational research network for subjects with chronic spinal cord and/or chronic traumatic brain injury.
In addition to the motor and sensory functions, sexual function changes after spinal cord injury and is considered one of the most common problems, ranging from a decrease in sexual desire...
A syndrome associated with traumatic injury to the cervical or upper thoracic regions of the spinal cord characterized by weakness in the arms with relative sparing of the legs and variable sensory loss. This condition is associated with ischemia, hemorrhage, or necrosis involving the central portions of the spinal cord. Corticospinal fibers destined for the legs are spared due to their more external location in the spinal cord. This clinical pattern may emerge during recovery from spinal shock. Deficits may be transient or permanent.
Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.
Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.
Longitudinal cavities in the spinal cord, most often in the cervical region, which may extend for multiple spinal levels. The cavities are lined by dense, gliogenous tissue and may be associated with SPINAL CORD NEOPLASMS; spinal cord traumatic injuries; and vascular malformations. Syringomyelia is marked clinically by pain and PARESTHESIA, muscular atrophy of the hands, and analgesia with thermoanesthesia of the hands and arms, but with the tactile sense preserved (sensory dissociation). Lower extremity spasticity and incontinence may also develop. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1269)
Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
