(1) Identify the proportion of participants with spinal cord dysfunction (SCD) reporting each of 10 job benefits and compare the proportions between participants with spinal cord injury (SCI) and multiple sclerosis (MS), and (2) examine if diagnostic criteria, demographics, education level, and functional limitations are associated with the number of job benefits received.

In the literature on chronic spinal cord injury, neurogenic bowel dysfunction has not gained as much attention as bladder dysfunction, the traditional cause of morbidity and mortality.
The goal in this study was to describe the overall organization of the spinal arachnoid mater and spinal subarachnoid space (SSAS) as well as its relationship with surrounding structures, in order to ...
Balance impairment is very common in multiple sclerosis (MS) but its causes are still unclear. Some studies suggest that balance deficit originates mainly from damage in specific locations of the cent...
The spinal cord is an important part of the central nervous system (CNS). At present, the expression of the exogenous gene in the spinal cord of the embryonic mouse needs in utero spinal cord electrop...
To evaluate the intervention effect of sacral neuromodulation (SNM) in the treatment of lower urinary tract dysfunction after spinal cord injury (SCI).
A Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) often drastically disrupts the lives of affected patients and their relatives and caregivers. This observational study will provide new knowledge on how patients...
This study involves research about how to help veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) gain employment. During the first couple of years following SCI, many people are concentrating on the...
This study will be an extension of the Spinal Cord Injury Vocational Integration Program (SCI-VIP). The study involves research about how to help veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) ga...
The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the causes of gastrointestinal dysfunction after spinal cord injury. It has been thought that the microbiome (the community of bac...
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a kind of severe disease with high morbidity and complications. At present, electroacupuncture has certain advantages in treating motor sensory dysfunction, neu...
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.
Inflammation of the spinal cord. Relatively common etiologies include infections; AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES; SPINAL CORD; and ischemia (see also SPINAL CORD VASCULAR DISEASES). Clinical features generally include weakness, sensory loss, localized pain, incontinence, and other signs of autonomic dysfunction.
A form of spinal dysraphism associated with a protruding cyst made up of either meninges (i.e., a MENINGOCELE) or meninges in combination with spinal cord tissue (i.e., a MENINGOMYELOCELE). These lesions are frequently associated with spinal cord dysfunction, HYDROCEPHALUS, and SYRINGOMYELIA. (From Davis et al., Textbook of Neuropathology, 2nd ed, pp224-5)
Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.
Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.
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...
