This study examined whether there is an association between the presence of lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration (LDD) and the size and symmetry of the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of t...
Low back pain is a major public health issue as the leading cause of disability globally. Degeneration of intervertebral disc (IVD) disorder is once source of low back pain. Current treatm...
Low back pain is a major cause of disability, especially in the working-age population. A total of 149 million working days are lost every year as a consequence of back pain. Intervertebra...
The objective of our study will be to analyze the interplay between particular VDR variants and its ligand in cells obtained from intervertebral disc and cartilage endplate and their actio...
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is the primary cause of low back pain. The most important factor in the development of DDD is the vertical load force on the disc, increasing the hydrostati...
Intervertebral disc degeneration was characterized with aberrant intervertebral disc nucleus pulposus cells apoptosis. MiR-532 was reported to be up-regulated in the patients with intervertebral disc ...
To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) stimulation on the levels of a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs-4 (ADAMTS-4) protein in the lumbar intervertebral disc tiss...
Severe lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration is associated with Modic changes and fatty infiltration in the paraspinal muscles at all lumbar levels, except L1-L2: A cross-sectional analysis of 50 symptomatic females and age-matched 50 symptomatic males.
Low back pain is a common public health problem associated with lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration. It is still unclear, whether intervertebral disc degeneration is an isolated process or accompa...
An experimental animal study of osteoporosis and intervertebral disc degeneration.
One of the common causes of LBP is intervertebral disc degeneration. The pathophysiology of disc degeneration involves apoptosis of nucleus pulposes (NP) cells and degradation of extra cellular matrix...
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
Fibrocartilage inner core of the intervertebral disc. Prolapsed or bulged nucleus pulposus leads to INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DISPLACEMENT while proliferation of cells in the nucleus pulposus is associated with INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
The replacement of intervertebral discs in the spinal column with artificial devices. The procedure is done in the lumbar or cervical spine to relieve severe pain resulting from INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
The dissolving of the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS, the semi-gelatinous tissue of a displaced INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. It is usually achieved by the direct injection of a proteolytic enzyme, especially CHYMOPAPAIN, into the herniated disc.
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
