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...
The purpose is to evaluate the efficacy of tranexamic acid in cervical laminoplasty; the surgical procedure used was identical in all cases.
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 c...
To compare short-term clinical and radiological outcomes of anterior fusion-nonfusion hybrid surgery (cervical discectomy or corpectomy and fusion combine with cervical disc replacement) and posterior...
Alterations in Intramedullary T2-weighted Increased Signal Intensity following Laminoplasty in Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy Patients: Comparison between pre- and Postoperative Magnetic Resonance Images.
Prospective comparative imaging study OBJECTIVE.: This study investigated whether the postoperative classification of and alterations in increased signal intensity (ISI) of the spinal cord reflected t...
Unilateral expansive open-door cervical laminoplasty is an effective and safe procedure for cervical compressive myelopathy, but occasionally is accompanied with significant intraoperative blood loss ...
Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM) occurs due to chronic degenerative changes in the cervical spine causing compression of the spinal cord. CSM has been studied for decades and there are innumerabl...
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.
A surgical procedure that entails removing all (laminectomy) or part (laminotomy) of selected vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and/or SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. Vertebral lamina is the thin flattened posterior wall of vertebral arch that forms the vertebral foramen through which pass the spinal cord and nerve roots.
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.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
The first cervical vertebra.
