Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an accepted, cost-effective treatment option for a variety of chronic pain syndromes, including failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). The application of SCS in the cervical spine, particularly for pain after cervical spine surgery, has been drawn into question in recent years by payers due to a purported lack of clinical evidence. To challenge this claim, we analyzed data from a prospective registry to support the use of SCS in the cervical spine for pain after spine surgery.
A 36-year-old man was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) of the cervical spine with a unifocal expansive osteolytic lesion of C4. The surgical management with a 2-year follow-up and a review of the literature on LCH of the cervical spine are presented. Although a rare condition, LCH is an important differential diagnosis of any osteolytic lesion in the cervical spine with localized pain in a young adult patient. Review of the literature suggests a higher prevalence of LCH lesions affecting t...
We report a rare case of cervical spine trauma through a cervical disc replacement and adjacent multilevel disc fusions. Cervical disc replacement (CDR) is a viable option for the surgical treatment of degenerative disc disease however long term follow up data regarding this operative technique is poor specifically relating to traumatic complications. We know of no previous reports of bilateral cervical pedicle fractures occurring adjacent to CDR and anterior cervical spine instrumentation.
Impact of Cervical Sagittal Alignment on Axial Neck Pain and Health-related Quality of Life After Cervical Laminoplasty in Patients With Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy or Ossification of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament: A Prospective Comparative Study.
This is prospective observational study.
Cervical stiffness is a clinical feature commonly appraised during the functional examination of cervical spine. Measurements of cervical stiffness in axial rotation have not been reported for patients with neck pain. The purpose of this study was to investigate cervical spine stiffness in axial rotation among neck pain patients and asymptomatic subjects, and to analyze the impact of osteopathic management.
Perioperative spinal cord injury and postoperative neurological deficits are the major complications in spinal surgery. Monitoring of spinal cord function is of crucial importance. Somatosensory evoked potentials and transcranial electric motor-evoked potentials are now widely used in cervical spine surgery. Although much has been written on spinal cord monitoring in adult spinal surgery, very little has been published on the incidence and management of monitoring of cervical spine surgery in the pediatric ...
Retrospective Analysis OBJECTIVE.: To improve understanding of the impact of comorbid mental health disorders on long-term outcomes following cervical spinal fusion in cervical radiculopathy (CR) or cervical myelopathy (CM) patients.
Context: Prior studies have shown common use of post-operative bracing, despite advances in modern day instrumentation rigidity and little evidence of brace effectiveness.
Cervical spine is part of the spine with the most mobility in the sagittal plane. It is important for surgeons to have reliable, simple and reproducible parameters to analyse the cervical.
Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is a common cause of neurological disability, especially in aging populations. There are several approaches to decompress the cervical spinal cord, including anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, corpectomy and fusion, arthroplasty, posterior cervical laminectomy with or without fusion, and laminoplasty. Less well described is minimally invasive cervical laminectomy. The authors report their technique and results for minimally invasive cervical laminectomy.
Numerous studies have analyzed the impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on the cervical spine and its related surgical interventions. However, there is a paucity of literature available conducting the same analyses in patients with non-cervical spine involvement.
Cervical kyphosis surgery poses significant challenge to the spine surgeons. Etiologies of cervical kyphosis are many, each having its own outcome and treatment challenges. Irrespective of the etiology, the treating physician should consider all options fully to improve function and prevent neurological worsening. We outline management principles and decision-making in case of rigid rounded kyphosis of cervical spine and highlight the technique of the internal gibbectomy procedure, which is never reported i...
In patients with an unstable cervical spine, maintenance of cervical immobilization during tracheal intubation is important. In McGrath videolaryngoscopic intubation, lifting of the blade to raise the epiglottis is needed to visualize the glottis, but in patients with an unstable cervical spine, this can cause cervical spine movement. By contrast, the Optiscope, a rigid video-stylet, does not require raising of the epiglottis during tracheal intubation. We therefore hypothesized that the Optiscope would pro...
The aim of this study was to analyze rates of perioperative complications and subsequent cervical surgeries in patients treated for cervical degenerative disc disease with anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and those treated with artificial cervical disc arthroplasty (ACDA) for up to 5-year follow-up.
Research investigating Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD) has largely focused on the cervical spine yet symptoms can be widespread. Thoracic spine pain prevalence is reported ~66%; perhaps unsurprising given the forceful stretch/eccentric loading of posterior structures of the spine, and the thoracic spine's contribution to neck mobility/function. Approximately 50% WAD patients develop chronic pain and disability resulting in high levels of societal and healthcare costs. It is time to look beyond the cervic...
Loss of motion following spine segment fusion results in increased strain in the adjacent motion segments. However, to date, studies on the biomechanics of the cervical spine have not assessed the role of coupled motions in the lumbar spine. Accordingly, we investigated the biomechanics of the cervical spine following cervical fusion and lumbar fusion during simulated whiplash using a whole-human finite element (FE) model to simulate coupled motions of the spine.
Limited or no data exist evaluating risk-factors associated with prolonged opioid use following cervical arthrodesis.
Context: Degenerative changes in the cervical spine occur in an age-dependent manner. As the U.S. population continues to age, the incidence of age-dependent, multi-level, degenerative cervical pathologies is expected to increase. Similarly, the average age of patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) will likely trend upward. Posterior cervical fusion (PCF) is often the treatment modality of choice in the management of multi-level cervical spine disease. Although outcomes following anterior cervi...
Assessment of T1 Slope Minus Cervical Lordosis and C2-7 Sagittal Vertical Axis Criteria of a Cervical Spine Deformity Classification System Using Long-Term Follow-up Data After Multilevel Posterior Cervical Fusion Surgery.
Recently, previous research proposed a cervical spine deformity (CSD) classification using a modified Delphi approach. However, C2-C7 sagittal vertical axis (SVA) and T1 slope minus C2-C7 lordosis (TS-CL) cut-off values for moderate and severe disability were based on expert opinion.
Here, we systematically review clinical studies that report morbidity and outcomes data for cervical and lumbar surgeries performed in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). We focus on anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), posterior cervical foraminotomy, cervical arthroplasty, lumbar microdiscectomy, lumbar laminectomy, and minimally invasive transforaminal interbody fusion (TLIF) and lateral lumbar interbody fusion, as these are prevalent and surgical spine procedures that are becoming more commonl...
Congenital spinal stenosis (CSS) of the cervical spine is a risk factor for acute spinal cord injury and development of degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM).
In France, surgery for lumbar disc herniation is now being done in the outpatient ambulatory setting at select facilities. However, surgery for the cervical spine in this setting is controversial because of the dangers of neck hematoma. We wanted to share our experience with performing ambulatory anterior cervical discectomy in 30 patients at our facility.
Previous cervical spine imaging decision rules have been based on positive findings on plain X-ray and are limited by lack of specificity, age restrictions and complicated algorithms. We previously derived and validated a clinical decision rule (Rule 1) for detecting cervical spine injury (CSI) on CT in a single-centre study. This recommended CT for patients with (1) GCS score
