Besides the facet joints interlocking, the fibrous tissue or bony callus around the dislocated segments make the reduction for this kind of old injury to be more challenging and different from that of acute injuries. This study is aimed to present four cases of old Subaxial cervical facet dislocations (SCFD), that were successfully treated with posterior unlocking under endoscopy followed by anterior decompression, reduction and fixation.

Chiari I malformation is characterized by the downward displacement of cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum. While discussing the treatment options for Chiari I malformation, the points of fo...
In some cases of cervical facet dislocations, open reduction becomes imperative when closed reduction fails. In these cases, posterior open reduction with subsequent posterior fixation has been favore...
Percutaneous full-endoscopic anterior cervical discectomy (PEACD) and posterior cervical foraminotomy (PCF) have been reported as effective treatments for the cervical spondylosis radiculopathy (CSR),...
The anterior-only surgical procedure including discectomy, open reduction, fusion and fixation is a recommended approach in the treatment of cervical facet dislocations. This approach has a reduction ...
Surgery is indicated for basilar invagination (BI) in symptomatic patients. In many patients, symptoms and signs occur due to an upward-migrated and malaligned odontoid with fixed or mobile atlantoaxi...
This Prospective, Single-center, Pilot Study will assist in gaining an understanding of the actual CRFA lesions in an in vivo situation in areas where CRFA is utilized as a standard of car...
In suspected facet joints pain, it is recommended to perform nerve blocks to establish the diagnosis with positive results being and indicator of successful of most permanent treatment of ...
Prior to the injection, the facet joints have to be defined according to standard radiological techniques (e.g. MRI and physical correlation). Patients are then sent to 18F-Fluoride-PET/MR...
Chronic pain incurs over half a trillion dollars in lost productivity (healthcare, lost wages, etc) annually. The most common source is low back pain (LBP), often from facet joints. The cl...
We propose here to evaluate the precision of lumbar thermocoagulation performed under a transverse ultrasound approach by performing a fluoroscopic control once the needle in the desired p...
Deficient development or degeneration of a portion of the VERTEBRA, usually in the pars interarticularis (the bone bridge between the superior and inferior facet joints of the LUMBAR VERTEBRAE) leading to SPONDYLOLISTHESIS.
The compartment containing the anterior extremities and half the inferior surface of the temporal lobes (TEMPORAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. Lying posterior and inferior to the anterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, ANTERIOR), it is formed by part of the TEMPORAL BONE and SPHENOID BONE. It is separated from the posterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR) by crests formed by the superior borders of the petrous parts of the temporal bones.
A polygonal anastomosis at the base of the brain formed by the internal carotid (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL), proximal parts of the anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral arteries (ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY; MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY; POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), the anterior communicating artery and the posterior communicating arteries.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
