This study examined the effects of health and rehabilitation service use, unmet need for services and service obstacles on health-related quality of life (HR QoL) and psychological wellbeing after dis...
To investigate the neurological and functional recovery patterns of ischemic spinal cord injury (ISCI) compared with traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) in the acute to chronic phase. Retrospective c...
The nature of the relationship between spinal cord syrinx and tethered cord is not well known. It is unclear if surgical cord untethering results in resolution or improvement of an associated syrinx. ...
: The importance of physiologic distribution of F-FDG in the spinal cord.: The recognition of the physiologic distribution of F-FDG in the spinal cord is pivotal for accurate PET/CT imaging interpreta...
Spinal cord injury-related pain is often a severe debilitating condition that adversely affects the patient's physical health, psychological wellbeing and quality of life. Opioid medications have hist...
The purpose of this study is to determine the autoantibody profiles after spinal cord injury and their role in spontaneous functional recovery.
The purpose of this project is to test the efficacy of an internet-based psychological health enhancement program for women with spinal cord injury. The intervention will occur in Second L...
This trial studies the best time point of using F18-FDG that gives the best image on PET-MRI in patients with spinal cord lesions of unknown cause. Diagnostic procedures, such as F18-FDG P...

The purpose of this trial is to determine the efficacy of spinal cord stimulation to produce an effective cough in patients with spinal cord injuries.
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.
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.
Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).
Neoplasms located in the space between the vertebral PERIOSTEUM and DURA MATER surrounding the SPINAL CORD. Tumors in this location are most often metastatic in origin and may cause neurologic deficits by mass effect on the spinal cord or nerve roots or by interfering with blood supply to the spinal cord.
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...
