Summary of "BEDSIDE DYSPHAGIA SCREENS IN PATIENTS WITH TRAUMATIC CERVICAL INJURIES: AN IDEAL TOOL FOR AN UNDER-RECOGNIZED PROBLEM."

We initiated a prospective interventional study utilizing a nurse-driven bedside dysphagia screen (BDS) in patients with cervical spine injury (CI) to address three objectives: 1) determine the incidence of dysphagia; 2) determine the utility of the new BDS as a screening tool; and 3) compare patient outcomes, specifically dysphagia-related complications, in the study period to a retrospective cohort.

The Effect of Local Versus Intravenous Corticosteroids on the Likelihood of Dysphagia and Dysphonia Following Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion: A Single-Blinded, Prospective, Randomized Controlled Trial.

Dysphagia and dysphonia are the most common postoperative complications following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Although most postoperative dysphagia is mild and transient, severe dy...

Traumatic Unilateral L3-4 Jumped Facet Treated with Open Reduction and Short Segment Fusion.

Facet dislocations, or jumped facets, are part of a spectrum of flexion-distraction spine injuries. Bilateral and unilateral facet dislocations are commonly seen in the cervical spine. Traumatic jumpe...

Anterior Reduction and Fusion of Cervical Facet Dislocations.

Cervical facet dislocations are among the most common traumatic spinal injuries. Posterior, anterior, and combined surgical approaches have been described and are widely debated.

Challenges of managing patients with symptomatic large traumatic cervical pseudomeningoceles.

Traumatic cervical pseudomeningoceles (TCP) occur secondary to traction of the cervical nerve roots resulting in violation of the dura. Surgical repair is not necessary in most cases, because pseudome...

Variability in Treatment for Patients with Cervical Spine Fracture and Dislocation: an Analysis of 107,152 Patients.

Cervical spine injuries are a common cause of morbidity and mortality, but optimal treatment is debated. Prior studies showed substantial variation in treatment. We examined treatment variation in art...

Short-term Effect of Chewing Gum in Patients With Mild-moderate Dysphagia After Anterior Cervical Fusion

The aim of the study is to estimate the effect of chewing gum after anterior cervical fusion surgery on decreasing the severity of dysphagia in patients with mild-moderate dysphagia.

Toronto Bedside Swallowing Screening Test (TOR-BSST) - A Bedside Swallowing Screening for Stroke Patients

This research will assess the accuracy of the Toronto Bedside Swallowing Screening Test (TOR-BSST), a new dysphagia screening test for patients with stroke. The purpose of the TOR-BSST is...

The purpose of this study is to characterize oral-pharyngeal swallow function with the guidance of videofluoroscopy under two conditions, with and without cervical bracing, in patients det...

Anterior Only Surgery for Management of Traumatic Subaxial Cervical Spine Instability

Classic management of cervical spine sublaxation and dislocation is combined anterior and posterior approach. Unfortunately there are disadvantages for this approach like: increasing morbi...

Effect of Local Steroid Application on a Cervical Plate Versus Intravenous Steroids on Dysphagia Following Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)

Local application of steroids in ACDF surgery will lead to decreased incidence of dysphagia compared to intravenous steroids or a control group

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Traumatic injuries to the cranium where the integrity of the skull is not compromised and no bone fragments or other objects penetrate the skull and dura mater. This frequently results in mechanical injury being transmitted to intracranial structures which may produce traumatic brain injuries, hemorrhage, or cranial nerve injury. (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p417)

Screens which absorb the energy in the x-ray beam that has penetrated the patient and convert this energy into a light pattern which has as nearly as possible the same information as the original x-ray beam. The more light a screen produces for a given input of x-radiation, the less x-ray exposure and thus shorter exposure time are needed to expose the film. In most film-screen systems, the film is sandwiched between two screens in a cassette so that the emulsion on each side is exposed to the light from its contiguous screen.

Bleeding within the SKULL induced by penetrating and nonpenetrating traumatic injuries, including hemorrhages into the tissues of CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM; as well as into the epidural, subdural and subarachnoid spaces of the MENINGES.

Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).

Dysfunction of one or more cranial nerves causally related to a traumatic injury. Penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; NECK INJURIES; and trauma to the facial region are conditions associated with cranial nerve injuries.
