To describe two cases of cervical spondylotic myelopathy initially misdiagnosed as transverse myelitis.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Multiple sclerosis and related disorders
Detrusor sphincter dyssynergia (DSD), involuntary detrusor contractions (IDC) and poor bladder compliance (PC) are relatively common urodynamic findings in cervical myelopathy. However, there is littl...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical safety and efficacy between laminectomy and fusion (LF) versus laminoplasty (LP) for the treatment of multi-level cervical spondylotic myelopathy ...
Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the most common cause of spinal cord dysfunction. Our study aims to explore the correlation of osteoprotegerin (OPG) gene polymorphisms and the risk factors an...
Selection of anterior versus posterior surgery for multilevel (≥3) cervical spondylotic myelopathy (MCSM) continues to be controversial. A comparison between anterior cervical discectomy and fusion ...
It has been reported that a wide range of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are implicated in numerous diseases such as tumor, cardiopathy and neurological disorders. Identifying the differentially expre...
There is no difference in surgical outcomes for patients suffering from cervical spondylotic myelopathy treated with anterior decompression and fusion or posterior cervical laminoplasty.
Patients who have been diagnosed with Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy will be asked to undergo an MRI using diffusion basis spectrum imaging (DBSI) technology. The patients will have this ...
The primary purposes of this study are to compare anterior and posterior surgical approach in treatment of CSM ad to compare variations in treatment and outcomes of CSM worldwide.
The purpose of the study is to determine the optimal surgical approach (ventral versus dorsal) for patients with multi-level cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). There are no establishe...
Veterans are at heightened risk of developing cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) from rigors of military service. Balance and posturography are negatively affected in CSM, but require e...
A syndrome characterized by acute OPTIC NEURITIS in combination with acute MYELITIS, TRANSVERSE. Demyelinating and/or necrotizing lesions form in one or both optic nerves and in the spinal cord. The onset of optic neuritis and myelitis may be simultaneous or separated by several months. (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1996 Apr;60(4):382-387)
Inflammation of a transverse portion of the spinal cord characterized by acute or subacute segmental demyelination or necrosis. The condition may occur sporadically, follow an infection or vaccination, or present as a paraneoplastic syndrome (see also ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, ACUTE DISSEMINATED). Clinical manifestations include motor weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1242-6)
Genetic disorder of mucopolysaccharide metabolism characterized by skeletal abnormalities, joint instability, development of cervical myelopathy, and excessive urinary keratan sulfate. There are two biochemically distinct forms, each due to a deficiency of a different enzyme.
The two large endothelium-lined venous channels that begin at the internal occipital protuberance at the back and lower part of the CRANIUM and travels laterally and forward ending in the internal jugular vein (JUGULAR VEINS). One of the transverse sinuses, usually the right one, is the continuation of the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS. The other transverse sinus is the continuation of the straight sinus.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
